    Does the key not turn the vehicle engine over , or does the key physically not turn in the ignition (key hole) Could be easy fixes , but need more info. Either way , I don't agree with your dealer , and I try to avoid dealerships completely unless it is for a free waranty repair.

I purchased a 2004 xc70. The previous owner reported driving it parking it for 6 months and it never started again. He did charge the battery.


I recommend strongly you see the dealer, I think the BCM has lost programming. The dealer can re-flash the BCM module.

Maintenance required light is on


If you take your civic into a Honda dealer for regular maintenance they should reset it for you. Even most Lube shops do as well. But if you do your own vehicle services like oil changes (which is what that light is there for) then here's how you can reset it.

  1. put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
  2. press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
  3. while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
  4. As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
  5. Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
That should do it. Hope this helps

How do i get rid/ reset message xc90 "transmission service urgent" i have already taken to volvo dealer about six months ago. they could not pin point issue on diagnostic. Cheers


You first have to retrieve fault codes from your computer network then you have to diagnose the systems/circuits indicated by the fault codes to determine what the cause of the failure is, then you must repair the system/circuit at fault and then reset the computer system. If the dealer cannot do this, I don't know who can. Did they tell you what fault codes they were getting? If so, we can look up the troubleshooting charts for those codes as well as do a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) search to see if this is a known problem with a known fix. Without the codes, your guess is as good as mine.

2001 Suburban bell in car ringing like lights are left on


check you ignition system, where you put the key in, stick the key back in the ignition and play with it by turning the ignition back and forth to see if you getting contact, do it more than 5-6 time, jiggle it also when turning the key. sometime switch goes bad in the ignition system and the key doesn't realize the key is out, same way your car will not start. if you have to replace the unit is fairly cheap and easy do it your self
