Engine turns but does not start, seems like no spark to cylinders.


Your chipped key is not making a good connection to your factory installed anti-theft device. Lightly grease both sides of car key with electric bulb grease and work it into key ignition. Over time the key wears down, contacts in ignition switch become worn and corroded. Grease makes better contact...chipped key is able to send signal to factory anti-theft device which unlocks all systems required to start you engine. Make sure the key you are using is a chipped key for your car; not a un-chipped cut key from the key cutting machine. It will work on locks, but only a chipped key for your car will deactivate your anti-thief and you get power to your engine and systems to get it started.

Immoboliser of city dont work


First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

  • Everytime when you had a new key you must programm all available ignition car keys before trying to start the engine with this new key !!!

  • You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel. Do you have this warning symbol lightning on the dashboard?

    This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

    From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.

    Use another ignition key that you have, and start the engine.

    Programing a key fob


    1. Perform a security system relearn.
    2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
    3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
    4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
    5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
    6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
    7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
    8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
    9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
    10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.
    If this doesnt work, you may have a failure in your system. If the security light is on, and the reprogram doesnt work, you might want to look into bypassing that antitheft system.

    I just got a key for my 1998 cadillac sts but it will not start the car what do i do? It will open the doors and the alarm goes off but the car will not start.


    Leave key in ignition and turn to ON (do not start) Leave in on position for exactly 10 minutes. After 10 minutes is up and your anti-theft light is off, then immediately start the car.
    Sometimes the key also need to be reprogrammed for the car.
    insert the key and turn the key to "on". The DIC will say "Remove Key, Starting Disabled", and the security light will remain on.

    approx. 10 minutes later. Remove the key. wait 10 seconds and repeat this another two times, for a total of 30 minutes "key-in" time.

    Now insert your key and start the engine.

    To learn additional keys:
    Start the engine up with a working key. Shut the engine off, and within 10 seconds, insert the next key you want to learn and turn it to "ON". When the security light goes out, that key is programmed. Repeat for the next key, up to 10 keys can be programmed per car.
