Sounds as though your safety neutral switch is malfunctioning and should be replaced or adjusted.

Manually resetting the factory alarm on a 2001suzuki grand vitara


I can't reset these. Dealer. But I would have the system scanned first. Make sure there isn't a problem. If the security light isn't constantly on, you may have a bad starter. Check fuses first.

My security light is on and flashing, wont let me start the car and keep it running, how do i turn the security system off or reset it


leave the key in the ignition, turned to 'run' (just before the crank position) and leave it there for about 15 minutes-the security light will then stop flashing-do NOT turn it off, turn it to crank and start the car. You have a security module that is not seeing the same resistance in the ignition switch as it expects, meaning you will have to either replace the ignition switch (expensive) or bypass the module (easy and inexpensive)-I have done lots of these, requires about 15 cents worth of parts and can be done in 1/2 hour.

2001 dodge stratus want crank


It could be But my guess is it is the safety netural switch could even be a starter you can test it but you need jumper wires with aligator clips, you can try turning on the lights and turn the key switch over and if the lights dim slightly then it means it is making contact and pulling volatage but not starting, if the lights don't dim slightly then it could be the safety netural switch. If you can work with jumper wires and a couple safety stands I can help you test it.

2001 dodge stratus 2.7l no crank no start. No codes present with diagnostic tool. When ignition switch is open cil light comes on but the wipers the Radio and the most of the dash lights do not come on....


look inside the fuse/relay box under the hood . remove the lid from fuse/relay box and look inside the lid. the location for the ignition system and the start system (fuse/relay) will be marked. check the fuses with a testing light for faulty fuse or relay. also check battery voltage with ohm meter for correct voltage. remove relay and use test light to check for power at the plugs with key on.

No Start No Crank


I am guessing here but I would check the installation of your new cylinder and the fusebox. It sounds like the key is turning to the running/accessory position but not switching all of the accesories on. The tumbler can get loose inside the steering column and not engage the start switch.
Background... I had the same problem with 1st generation Dakota. The old key tumbler had to be turned much further than normal to engage the ignition. I paid "5 star" Dodge service to replace the unit and now it works as long as you turn the key back to "running" position after it starts. After the Dodge dealer told me that my truck was too old for them to be familiar they offered to dig around for MORE MONEY. Your problem reminds me that they said something inside the column wears out and they may not be able to fix. I was not impressed, but it reminds me to ask a mechanic if he intends to finish the job for which I am paying him. Mechanics aren't happy about this but it saves me money.

2004 Ford Explorer not starting


Is the engine turning over? When you turn the key to the on position, does it behave normally? IE, do the battery and airbag and other lights come on when you turn the key to on position?

Go inside the vehicle,dont put key in ignition, leave driver's door open, press the auto lock button on the driver's door, now close door while you are inside and watch on the dash the alarm enable itself, once it stops flashing open the door, this will set off the alarm, lights flashing horn blowing. Now take the key and put it in the drivers door and turn the key to stop the alarm. Now start you vehicle. If you want you can take the glove box apart to get to the vehicle security module to remove it. Dont unplug it unless the vehicle is running (must be running due to back up on computer) unplug the module and you will never have another problem with the security again and it does not effect your powerlocks.
