Service engine light comes on sparatically- changed the gas cap and it still comes on and off.

have someone , or yourself to hook up a diagnostic code tester to your aldl system, to retrieve the trouble codes, read the code # or # s that are retrieved, and compare them to the code retreiver booklet to see what the problem could be, also , you can go to a auto part store and they will hook up the code retriever, usually there is no charge for this procedure. if you have already done this, make sure that the trouble codes have been removed from the sytem. and take the cap back off and re install it , and turn it at least till you hear it click, it should be fine, hope so.

it sounds like you have a factory alarm problem and its not leting you start the car. is the security light flashing on the dashboard after you tried starting it? if so you are going to have to reprogram the key. you try to start the car and leave key on until security light goes out it should take about ten minutes or so if light does not go out try again. i have done this on some cars as many as 3 times before it started be careful not to drain battery.after the light goes out shut off key and try to start.

Won't start, back fires, engine knocks, spitting black smoke. can't hook up to computer because it wont start and getting a new battery will reset the computer in the truck.

2009 Mitsibushi Galant will not start. Will crank but will not turn not turn over.

Check the timing system, check for spark on all spark plugs, check the fuel pressure. If all is good then you might have a bad crankshaft sensor. Its most likely the crank sensor.

1995 Ford Aerostar will crank and start but shuts off

Have you performed the "key on engine off" test? Make sure that you hook up the reader and turn the ignition to the on position but do not start. Next, turn the code reader on. You should then hear the sensors and switches on engine click. If you do not hear the clicking (if you do and still no codes) then there is a connection problem with computer.

01 tiburon, alarm reset? wont start

I had the same problem because I store my car in the garage in the winter. I found that replacing the positive/negative cables with new ones and also if you still have your spare key, try putting one key in the ignition and turn to acc before turning it over click your alarm button on your spare set of keys and the alarm should reset itself and the car should start. i hope this helps you, i just finished changing my spark plug wires because I had a code P302 which made my 2nd cylinder misfire, so if your tiburon is around 180,000 km then you should change it too, I recommend Bosch they are the best.
take care
