I would disconnect battery for 10 minutes then re connect. once you do so get in the car and turn the key on it should turn the security light on programming your vats key then run car n shut off after 10. mins to store

First things first. if its the alarm system you wont have spark so check that first withan inductive timing light on one of the plug wires while you try to start it. if it was runnung fine before the solenoid fix its the most like cause. you will need to find a amnual online to figure out how to bypass the system or troubleshoot it to find out if it has a reset. next is fuel. if your getting good spark check to see if your getting fuel to the cylinders. if you have an electric fuel pump you may have blown the fuse in its circuit as well. start here and see how far you get. its always one or the other, either fuel or spark. good hunting.

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry


The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

1999 dodge durango wont start


may work may not...on older cars when the starter went bad and the car wouldn't start you could tap the starter with a long screwdriver or hammer lightly and the solenoid would engage and start the car but you need to get it home or to shop cause it wouldn't work again..if you try this and the starter engages then the starter needs to be replaced if you haven't already tried..if the lights are flashing when you try to start the vehicle then o would say its prob a malfunctioning alarm system..try to diengage it by pulling fuse for alarm..don't know if you can though..check the starter...good luck

Car alarm stopped working.. Car wont start


the jetta has a faulty alarm system from the factory i have been working on one in my shop. the alarm moddule is inside the dash behind the light switch and has a 10 pin connector and a 6 pin connector. this can be bypassed if you disconnect both connectors and jump the two large wire on the 6 pin connectors, these wires operate your starter. the car will start and run but your alarm will no longer be active. the door locks and everthing else will still work. the only issue i am having is the factory radio isn't working because it is controlled by the alarm. but worse case scenario i can use an aftermarket radio if need be.

Car Won't Start


I would start with checking out the alarm system if it has an immobilizer with it as well as an alarm, if there is no immobiliser with the alarm then I would check the ignition, I would also check that the starter is working properley and not binding. also check your fuses, under the hood there should be a fuse box with large fuses in it and some relays, it is quite possible that one of these fuses or relays has quit, for the starting system, I hope that this helps.

98 Corolla wont start!! Please help :)


When you try to start the car watch the dome light if it goes dim or out then you need to charge the battery or replace it which could be the same problem with you're alarm, a low battery in the remote or if the remote has been wet it could be shorting out causing this problem..

1994 corvette wont start


Dunno if it is your problem but have had this same 'died without warning' effect from nothing more than a corroded battery clamp or terminal at the starter with the same problem.

A cheap multimeter will tell you if there is any life at all and by measuring at the terminals when having someone turn the key, then doing the same at the clamps themselves will tell you quickly if it is simply failed contact at the battery.
If the battery measures ~ 12.6 volts with no load (nothing turned on) and still the same with the key turned to start, then the terminals are at fault.

Something I have never seen before happened to one of our sons just yesterday; his Optima (costly) battery lost contact INSIDE of the battery!
It measured zilch until we dropped it on the ground (on purpose) then it measured normally 12.6 VDC.
We reinstalled it and again, as soon as he attempted to start the Jeep, even the underhood light went out and didn't come back on and the battery again measured 0 volts.
