Should be a reset switch somewhere. Looks like a little led button or switch.

2003 audi will not start after steering was repaired computer was disconnected

All you need to do is get the codes scanned by a certified european mechanic and that will link you to the source of your issue. these vehicles have security also. it may just be a simple immboilizer reset/key reset etc. note the check engine light, if it comes on when you try to start the car (if it comes on and stays on with key on engine off) also while trying to start the car, note the security light. does it light up at all? stay solid? or blink? sounds like a simple fix to me. hope this helps

Is there a reset after I change the Battery on my 98 Corvette

There is no reset button for your Corvette. You may have an issue with the security system. Check if the Security light is on or flashing while trying to start the car.
I hope this helps.

Thank You,

Car doesnt start immeditately. security light comes on. once security light goes out car starts. Why?

it is detecting a problem....could be a dirty key or bad chip in the key....try this.....set the alarm by locking the door using the power lock switch and then close the door...the security light should come on steady for about 2 minutes and then go out.....the alarm is armed at this can unlock the drivers door using the key to reset the alarm.....if you do this with the windows down you can open the door from the inside to set the alarm off and see if it works properly by flashing lights and horn....after you trigger the alarm you will have to reset it by using the key on the drivers door....

Engine turns over but will not start.

If you don't get ignition after 1 or 2 tries, the security system kicks in as part of anti theft of car. If this happens usually the security light comes on. It will take anywhere up to 15 minutes for the security system to reset itself. When the light goes out the car should be able to start. Do not attempt to start the car if the security light is on or it may increase time to reset itself. If you continue to have this trouble you may have to replace the ignition cylinder. In the meantime you can hold the key a second or 2 longer to ensure a start the first time.
