Remove the car's battery and have your battery checked at a local auto parts store. O'Rieley's will do a free diagnostics of the battery. Another check you can do "on car". If you have a volt/ohm meter, set the meter to the 20 volt scale, attach the meter to the battery terminals. Check the open voltage of the battery. If the open voltage reading is 12 volts try and start the car. If voltage drops below nine volts, have the battery tested and or replaced.

I presume you have a good battery. The next thing I would check is the starter motor, then the ignition switch. If it doesn't start at all it may be the auto relay switch.

Your starter is probalby bad. If you can take it off, it can be tested at autozone. It not that expensive new but Im sure you can find a used one at a junk yard for cheap.

Car wont start, the security light is blinking and the car wont start


Your VATS security system is failing. Quick fix, turn key forward 2 clicks till right before it starts. Leave it for 10 minutes. (no less) turn back key and then start again. should be fine. Getting these fixed is about 800 bucks. They sell a bypass for 200 online. I did the "10 minute trick" for over a year, till finally the Computer went. I ended up doing the 200 dollar bypass. Works great, no worries.

MY 97 DODGE STRATUS WONT START, ITSGOT POWER AND WEN I TRY TO START IT I ONLY GET A CLICK NOISE, NOT THEDEAD BATTERY CLICKING NOISE JUST ONE CLICK AND THATS IT. I HAD STARTED IT TWENTY MINUTES PRIOR TO...


i believe if you remove the steering wheel upper and lower covers, there will be a button to push to allow the removal of the key..as for the no start, the battery light is on because of the alternator. Its faulty. the clicking sound could very well be the starter not having enough power reaching to turn it over again unless you put a power pack on it...try a brand new battery, test the alternator and removed the key..it is possible the the key not shutting off the way, is drawing power from the battery not allowing to start that way, causing what they call a "parasitic drain". charge battery, remove key. try that

Van wont start


Hello Sir,

as u say, the problem symtoms are those when there is battery problem, maybe its low.

or else, whenever if u have locked ur car with the remote control center locking system n then opened the door with with the tradition keys, then ur car wont respond to any of ur keys untill u unlock it using the remote.


I am sure the problem lies with the battery.

or maximum there will be a wire loose connection.


thank u sir, if u feel my solution is worth reading then plz vote m/ rate me.

thank u sir
