Security system for c6 corvette / resets

I had this problem when my battery got low. Had to use key to open truck to get in car. The horn started going off so I had to pull the fuse and then charge the battery. If you hold the lock and unlock buttons on the key fob for 10 seconds it will reset the system. Worked for me.

We have a 1989 toyota camry the key will not turn to start the car. It has a button on top of the stering column to release the key when you turn the car off and normally when you put the key in you have...

Sounds like the ignition barrel has failed.
If you replace any part you must ensure that the key and the transducer ring are matched. If not, the immobiliser will come on and you will never start the car.
Get a diagnostic test to verify the immobiliser is turning off.

Can I remove a damaged ignition key switch from a 99 astro van?

yes, that is what a large srew driver is for, hehe.
However you will need to pull the stering wheel
and remove the internal blinker assembly and remove a bolt holding it in place, if you need to move the tumbler use a srew driver and force it around. This
should be done by a good mechanic, even we have a fun time...If it is design like I think

Can't start the car - key will not turn.

I don't know the answer cause I don't have this car, But sometimes keys are pressed too far in, try pull the key out just a hair and trying it there, also make sure the car is in park and try pressing the brake too.
