I have seen a chrysler power train not start due to problems with the computer. don't rule out the starter because they do go bad too and you get the same situation. there is a relay in the fuse box for the starter. it is possible to jump power from the battery positive to the relay the make the starter engage. this will let you know the starter is ok. if ok then suspect the computer. many are still under warranty with chrysler. check with dealer and they can run scan on computer to verify

How to rekey a pontiac sunfire 2004


Im assuming you are refering to the anti theft security key relearn process.

1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.

If that doesnt work, look into this link http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Programing a key fob


1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.
If this doesnt work, you may have a failure in your system. If the security light is on, and the reprogram doesnt work, you might want to look into bypassing that antitheft system.

If the security light is flashing, it is DEFINITELY a security system issue. Intermittent ignition switch failures are common.

First, make sure you are using the correct key for the vehicle. Use a FACTORY key, NOT a copy made at the hardware store. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (do not try to start the vehicle yet). If the security light is not flashing, go ahead and try to start the engine. If it does not start, release the key to the RUN position and observe the security light. If it is flashing, wait about 10 minutes until it stops flashing then without turning the key off, turn the key to the start position again. If you are using the correct key it should start. If it does not, your car will have to be towed in for service.

Turn key to start truck but nothing happens, security light is on. lights and everything works


does the starter motor turn? the security light is an indicator of tamper mode. in tamper mode you will not able to start the vehicle until you reset the Passlock system by leaving the key in the ON position for 10-20 minutes.
tamper mode is a result of an unauthorized engine start attempt (such as a "hotwire") or a malfunction in the ignition cylinder.

2006 New Beetle: Turn the key everything seems ok except the engine...


Try your other key. Sometimes after the alarm has been set off the computer no longer recognizes that key. Its part of the security system. It will crank buy not start. To use that key again it will have to be reset with something from the dealer or you can completely unhook your positive on your battery. Getting help from dealer is easier...believe me!

SECURITY LIGHT COMES ON WHEN DRIVING,EVERYTHING IS OK BUT AFTER MAYBE 4 OR 5 TIMES OF SWITCHING OFF THE ENGINE, NEXT TIME TO TURN KEY TO START ENGINE TURNS BUT FUEL IS SHUT OF. PASS LOCK OPERATES. WE THEN...


The most common reason for this condition is a faulty ignition switch. It loses contact momentarily while cranking, causing a voltage loss to the security system and starts the 10 minute security timer in the computer. It will not start until the timer runs out. Usually the key has to be left on after a start attempt for the ten minutes. Some cars require 30 minutes. I hope this helps you and please rate this,

Your car is equipped with the VATS security system. Cars with this system need a key with a "chip" in it to start the car. A regular key won't start the car because of the security system. A key from the dealership is needed to start any GM car with the VATS system.

Car lights and everything goes on, but the car will not start


turn key from off to the on postiton. does the security light blink?
if so leave in on postition until light stops blinking (10min) then try to start car. may have to repeat process up to three times.
if the security re-learn process works, you will need a new ignition cylinder with security sensor. if not local gm dealer can tell you for sure.
