Why does the red light om my 2002 crown vic flash fast when I attemp to start it


Which red light? The one on top of the dash? If so, there are two cases where that light will flash rapidly: If you use the wrong programmed key, it will immediately start flashing rapidly when you turn on the ignition and try to start the car. If the light is steady and then starts flashing rapidly after a few seconds when you turn on the ignition or try to start the car, you are using the correct programmed key but the engine computer has a problem or has failed.

Key fob would not open 1995 discovery ,used key in door then alarm went off ,after a few seconds alarm ceased then put key in to start engine and got nothing now cant lock doors with key but red light is...


The red light means the Immobiliser has not been turned off, the deactivator in the key must not be working correctly, visit your local land rover dealer who will be able to make sure the key is paired to the car correctly, otherwise you may need a new key.

Our chrysler concorde LXI 2000 has a blinking red light at the very top of the dash board where the dash and the window meet. What is this light. It continues to blink even when the car is off.


Its a built in alarm. If im not mistaken when you exit you vehicle, push the door lock button from the driver side, clothes all doors, and your lights should flash. If there is no remote for it, turning it off you will have to put the key in the ignition and turn to on.

2008 Subaru Impreza RS Central Locking


The red light on the dash has several blinking patterns, just depending on what you set if for. But no matter what setting (valet mode or armed mode) the key fob should still work for the doors. If the unlock is not working, but the lock is working your problem is in the remote. If you open it up you will find that the rubber peice that makes contact with the board is broken. The remotes will need to be replaced, which is covered under the factory wrty. If the lock and unlock does not work at all then there is a programming issue, the dealer can reprogram the remotes for you. The reprogramming has to be done by the dealer. they have to hook up a lap top and program the remotes. The older models could be done easily.

Keyless entry keylob want lock or unlock doors or trunk.change battery and checked all fuses.


You need to program the remote. Get in to the car and LOCK all doors with the switch on drivers side door. Take the key and insert it into the ignition cylinder in and out 6-10 times, until the flashers/hazards flash on your dash board. Or just keep putting the key in and out (nice and easy now, not fast) until you see the lights on dash flash. After the lights flash, turn the key into ACC mode to make the whole dash light up.(do not start car) .With the key in ACC position, hit any button on remote, that will make the hazards flash again. Turn key off and unlock door with switch again. Open door.DONE.
Good luck.
