The problem with the saturns is not normally the key, however you could get a new one cut from the dealer which is not expensive, and try it, it is usually a worn out ignition cylinder

Car wont start with new ignition


If it has a magnatic chip then it has to be relearned and you might have to take it to the delership for that, its a pain.

Security light flashes car wont start


It's could be your PassLock security system that is failing. It started happening earlier this year on my 2002 Impala. If you wait about 20 minutes, it's starts right up after it resets. It started to happen every couple weeks and then every couple days, after a few months. I ended up bypassing the security by soldering in some resistors.

See the pictures at:

It took me about two hours to take apart the dash and carefuly double check everything I did, and take pictures. If I did it again... maybe 45-60 minutes (plus getting resistors).
I was lucky to have some resistors close to what I needed, so it cost me nothing but some time.

My ignition resistance checked at 1250 ohms. I used three resistors totaling about 1400 ohms. (At least according to my $10 meter).
Seems to work, even after I disconnected & reconnected the battery.

Wanna know do the 98 honda accord keys have a chip in them


Well first of yes your key was probably programed wrong or the chip in your key could be going out when you start your car the is a green key that lights up on your gauge cluster if your key is programed properly a few seconds after you start the car the green key will no longer be illuminated but if it is and your car dies the yes you need to get a new key since 98 all Accords have an imobilizer system witch means you have to get a key from a honda dealer because there is a little chip in the key that sends a signal to the imobilizer and tells it that the key is for the car and will start it take these steps to get your new key

1st. go to any honda dealer go to the parts department and tell them you need a extra key made the key will cost you around 35 dollars

2nd . after you get the new key cut go to the service department and talk to a advisor tell them you need a key programed then they will take your car program the key witch takes about ten minutes and most of the time they will do it for free if they dont it will cost about 20 bucks

if you do not program the key it will not work it will not start the car unless it is programed and you cannot program it yourself because you have to hook your imobilizer up to hondas interactive network through a data pad plugged into your pcm port and the only people that can do this are people at the dealership

so spend 30 minutes out of your day and 50-60 dollars out of your pocket at a honda dealer and you will have your new key and it is the only way to get a new key for your car

94 cadillac deville...car will not start or turn over because the security light blinks on and off. had a new key made at the dealer and performed the relearn procedure..I put the key in the RUN position...


As the prescribed method isn't working it would seem likely the antitheft system is broken and should be checked by a professional.

Electronics aren't bulletproof and at over 20 years old the ones fitted to your car are 20 years less robust and 20 years less sophisticated and easily damaged by such things as welding, battery charging, jump starting or even nearby lightning strikes. Such instances often do not cause obvious damage immediately but rather have a weakening effect so the final breakdown happens later, maybe years later.

2002 Monte Carlo Security system has shut car down completely unable to start car


the process takes about thirty minutes. in three ten minute key cycles. here is how you do it . make sure that the battery is fully charged. step on parking brake pedal and leave it down this will keep the head lights off. turn the key and try to start it then leave it in the on position. you have to leave the key in the on position for ten minutes. you will see the security light on. after the ten minutes the light will go off then turn the key to the start position. turn the key all the way back to the off position and count to three. then try to start it and leave the key in the on position for another ten minutes till the security light goes out. you have to do this same process three times to reset the security system. sometimes you get lucky and it will start after the first ten minute cycle.

THIS SYSTEM REQUIRES A REPROGRAMMING PROCEDURE AFTER COMPONENT REPLACEMENT. THERE IS A MANUAL RELEARN YOU CAN TRY BEFORE HAVING TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER FOR REPROGRAMMING. THE RELEARN IS AS FOLLOWS: DIS-CONNECT BATTERY FOR 5 MINUTES. RECONNECT BATTERY,TURN KEY ON BUT DO NOT START!! WAIT APPROX. 20 MINUTES OR WAIT UNTIL THEFT LIGHT GOES OFF. TURN KEY TO OFF FOR 5 SECONDS THEN ATTEMPT TO START. IF IT STILL WONT START LEAVE KEY IN RUN POSITION FOR AN ADDITIONAL 20 MINUTES OR UNTIL THEFT LIGHT GOES OUT THEN ATTEMPT START AGAIN. MAKE SURE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED!!! IF THIS DOESNT WORK IT WILL HAVE TO GO TO DEALERSHIP FOR REPROGRAMMING WITH TECH 2 SCANNER.

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.
