You may need to use a different key to start it up. Your present key does not seem to be acceptable to the security system J.

    I see that the spare key my son left is made on a Saturn blank. Can I get this remade on a Pontiac blank or must I wait for my son to come home at the end of July?

Starting problem (see details), on 1998 Town & Country.

Check your battery cables and starter cables especially the connectors and bolts under the hood. The bolts and connections could be loose or corroded. Check the connections near the battery and on the battery since many times mechanics mess with these the most. My guess is something is loose if it starts well most times, but fails occasionally. Did you look for blinky codes or DTCs? A '47' (or P0562) could mean a bad battery or alternator, and a '12' (or P1684) could indicate intermittent connections. Do the dome lights dim or stay well lit when the clicking is heard during cranking? If so, then the issue is most likely near the battery and if not then the issue is more likely near the starter. Good luck. There are a lot of wires under the hood.

Anti theft wont let me start car

I would treat it as a general no start condition. It could be fuel or ignition. The anti-theft system would prevent it from starting but not kill the engine once it has started.
Check the fuel pressure with a gauge and watch the spark at the plugs.

My ford fusion will not start,it gives me a message saying brake failure,but then will start after several try's any ideas?

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My sons Lincoln Town car has a charging problem, I think! How do I rule the alternator? And does the town car need the battery to run? I always thought the battery was for starting the car?

Is the battery light on? If so, the alternator is probably bad. The battery starts the car. The car runs off the alternator, and keeps the battery charged.

first try and pulled the code will lead you to the source of the problem if not try cranking it and watch the rpm if it moving while your starting it..if not than you need to change the electronic control module....that control the primary spark that go to the it should located close to the coil pack

My sons car has a clicking noise comming from the

It sounds like it is probably the valve train making a little noise - this normally happens when the car is cold (before it warms up and the oil gets moving nicely)

Has he done an oil change recently? Does he have sufficient oil in the car? Check these things and rectify if necessary. Finally, he might want to double-check the oil he's using - the first number in the specification (eg 5W30) refers to the cold viscosity - he may need to change this to improve his cold starting.

Hope this helps

Car is not starting when damp

Lincoln town cars are famous for this because the rear opening to the hood has been placed right over your distributor so; the rainwater just soaks your distributor. to fix this permanently get a piece of oil roofing paper cut it about 6' wide and glue it over the gap from under the hood this will keep your distributor dry
