The thing that sucks is you can't disable the alarm. I had this same issue. Here is the link, you have to replace the actual board behind the dashboard, I don't know the names, sry! But I do know, you can solder them as well, that's what we did and it fixed it! Good luck!! Seems like a ton of ppl have this issue and it ends up costing you an arm and leg! http://ingriddijkers.com/CaravanPics.html

    Our 1999 Town & Country would not start at all, not even a click. prior to that would start then die or alarm would turn on and stay on. An hour later unlocking and locking the back gate with the key disable the alarm just by pure luck. Just happened minutes ago. We did try many things over 2 days. Hope it works for all.

    We tried the different key things, unhooked the battery, left it off 15 min, none worked. My son called a mech friend of his, said the pigtail behind the dash board loosens up over time, hit the FRONT of the dash board right above the insturment panel. LOL, I would not have believed it, but I seen it, jumped in the car started right up after days of trying everything. I'm buying a rubber hammer just in case it does it again.

Verify around the steering column, if you see a square black box with a big plug into it, disconect the plug and try to start the car.

Try this to reset the system

Insert the ignition key into the driver side door lock.

  • Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock the door.

  • Turn the key clockwise to initiate the alarm activation sequence.

    the lamps you need to watch the lamps. they don't lie.
    so now it dont start (but cranks)
    the operators guide tells you what the lights mean, lost that.?
    2 lamps are security or IMMOBILIZers have a lamp
    • off means OK
    • on means its bad ( locked out, )
    • flashing means that system is sick.
    generally. got both lamps? look carefully.

    IMMO kills engine, if car is tired to start. with wrong key. (and or fob)
    security is theft alarm. and some cut spark others cut fuel other cut
    some even cut cranking,
    does yours crank?
    or cranks ok but wont start.
    no matter the lamps are FIRST> never last. never replace parts until you know what the lamps mean.

    see this?

    Passlock: System must detect proper R-code within ignition lock (or ignition switch) in order to start engine. Does NOT have chip in key.

    look at the lamp, and do not dis believe it,

    2004 Hyundai Elantra won't start, emergency flashers keep blinking, can't shut off, lights dim, can't jump start, clicking from under dash from relays. What could it be?


    The 'Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm System" is activated. You must 'Disarm' the system using the Keyless Entry Remove (Key Fob) to "Reset" the system. The reason the engine won't start is due to the burglar alarm - it has a "Starter Kill" circuit which is activated when the alarm is activated. The alarm must be DEactivated to DEactivate the 'Starter Kill' circuit.
    Another way to start the engine is to get in the car, put the key in the ignition and turn it to 'ON" and wait 3 to 5 minutes until the emergency flashers stop/turn off. Afterward, you should be able to start the engine. NOTE: This does NOT reset the burglar alarm. It will go off again when you enter the vehicle without using the remote/key fob.

    TRY RESETTING IMMOBILIZER BY PUTTING THE IGNITION KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH.TURN KEY TO THE ON POSITION WITH ENGINE OFF UNTIL IMMOBILIZER WARNING LAMP ILLUMINATES FOR 3 SECONDS.THEN TURN OFF THE SWITCH THEN TRY TO START THE ENGINE.IF IMMOBILIZER IS OKAY.CHECK FOR A BLOWED 40 AMP STARTER FUSE OR YOU HAVE FAULTY STARTER RELAY.
