Is it the original key? if it is a new key that you have cut & your vehicle has a factory engine immobiliser that can be a problem if the key is not a genuine buick key, reason being the key has a transponder incorporated in it which activates & deactivates the immobiliser & without that the engine wont start, the key will open the doors ,activate the starter & nothing else......hope this helps.......cheers

My 2009 keyless entry will not start?



Nissan cars with keyless entry will display key on dashboard display if battery of key runs out. Normally it can be resolved by replacing the battery. See video above.

Emergency Start: There is a way to start the car in case of emergency. If you don't have access to new battery then you can start the car by pressing the button with your key FOB. There is a sensor in your key below Nissan logo which should be kept near the Start-Stop button when pressing it. This should work even if there is no battery in the key. You can give it a try.

The key fob for my car will not unlock the doors or start the engine


You say that your key fob does not unlock the car. Try to open the door ordinary and try to start the car. If the car wont start means that your key fob has lost the program and needs re-programing. The other option is either you by any case confused the key fob with the standard key which is only to unlock the doors. The last senario is when you have opened the key fob to check the battery lost the microchip and that is the reason for not starting. Check following my advice. Good luck.

Car starts with remote car starter but will not start with the ignition key


When it will not start with the key, is this a crank no start issue ?

If you turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) does the theft light on the cluster go out ?

If not, try a different key. I am working from an assumption that the PATS key is not registering with the HEC for some reason, this is why the try another key. The remote start has a PATS bypass

Please post back with the answers to the questions, and the results of the 2nd key testing

Spare/extra key will not start the car


Key must be made by the dealer and programmed to the vehicle. There is a chip in the key that the antitheft system must read to start the engine. Any key blank with matching cut can open the door, no chip necessary

My smart key is not working. i opened the door with the key part located inside the fob. is there a way to start the car with this key part? i do not see a key hole


Hello. Your smart key needs the battery replaced.

You can start the car, with a weak smart-key battery.

Position the smart key right above the start button. The Smart-key receiver will communicate with the smart key passively. The smart key must be held on the dash, above the start button.

I just got a key for my 1998 cadillac sts but it will not start the car what do i do? It will open the doors and the alarm goes off but the car will not start.


Leave key in ignition and turn to ON (do not start) Leave in on position for exactly 10 minutes. After 10 minutes is up and your anti-theft light is off, then immediately start the car.
Sometimes the key also need to be reprogrammed for the car.
insert the key and turn the key to "on". The DIC will say "Remove Key, Starting Disabled", and the security light will remain on.

approx. 10 minutes later. Remove the key. wait 10 seconds and repeat this another two times, for a total of 30 minutes "key-in" time.

Now insert your key and start the engine.

To learn additional keys:
Start the engine up with a working key. Shut the engine off, and within 10 seconds, insert the next key you want to learn and turn it to "ON". When the security light goes out, that key is programmed. Repeat for the next key, up to 10 keys can be programmed per car.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.
