No this will not required the PATS system to be reprogrammed (inition switch or ignition lock cylinder). best bet is with a test light is to check and make sure there is voltage at the b terminal at the starter (big red cable). If voltage is present, and vehicle in park and parking brake on, have someone crank vehicle while test light is on the S terminal (smaller wire) should light only in crank position. If voltage is present, a new starter should fix the problem if engine is not locked up.

What would short out the brake lights on 2001 ford ranger?


Doublecheck your battery voltage with the engine running. If it's above about 15V, TURN THE ENGINE OFF and get the regulator replaced! That's a classic symptom of a bad voltage regulator - I've seen it burn out everything on the vehicle - including the ignition.

I want to replace the ignition switch in my 2001 Grand Am GT. In order to I have to reprogram the computer to accept the new ignition. What kind of tool do I need to so?


First remember to unhook the battery neg side first i didnt and locked the security system down on mine but you dont have to reprogram the comp all you have to do is a relearn on the new switch and what you do is after you get the new switch in hook the battery up and turn the key to the on position and let it sit for 30 minutes you may want to hook a battery charger up to the battery while doing this cause sometimes it takes more than one attempt to get it it took me three 30 minute sections to get mine working but after time is up turn the switch to crank it and if it doesnt crank do the relearn again . Hope this helps

I had a new key cut for my 2004 accord and replaced the keyless entry pad. The car will not start...does the pad need reprogramed to start the car


If you car has the immobilizer system, the following might help.

The Immobilizer System protects your car from theft. A properly coded ignition key must be used in the ignition switch for the engine to start. If an improperly-coded key (or other device) is used, the engine’s fuel system is disabled.
When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the Immobilizer System indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON (II) again.

Hope this is helpful to you.

How do you change a key switch in a 2001 chevy impala, the factory keys wont turn in the switch


If your key is worn try getting a new one cut.
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.
If you are unable to operate the ignition cylinder with a new key then you will probably need to replace the cylinder and switch.Replacement of the switch involves reprogramming
The system may be programmed with or without a scan tool.
There is a way to get the cylinder out without replacing the switch but this procedure should be performed by a qualified GM technician as it involves removal of the switch and some precise drilling.

I replaced ignition switch on my 2001 ford explorer and now my car won't start what steps do i take in replacing the ignition


if you are sure all wires are installed correctly check fuses... also you would have to match the ignition key start pellet to the anti theft computer. your old key might not be seen as the correct key by the system.

If you do not have a pass key any more, then you will need to dissable the antitheft (pass key module) in order for the engine to turn over. From what I gather you have replaced the column with an older version, which will not allow any comm. with the module. The pass key module enables the starter circuit. See diagram.
