Have your catalytic converter checked out. Make sure you are not confusing flashing a bunch of times with dash trouble codes which will be low numbers like 1-5 with pauses. If CEL flashes over and over a bunch of times that usually means serious emissions control problem which could include total failure of cat and not a cheap thing to replace.

I just replaced heater core for 2008 Escape. After I reinstalled everything back, my car won't start and check enigine light flashes 8 times. Would you tell me how I shoud fix this problem please


check engine light flashes 8 times.That doesn't mean anything . Won't start ! let's examine that first . When you turn the key to the start position , does the starter spin the engine ,yes , no ? If it does this is a cranks no start condition . Now if nothing happens ,this is a no crank no start condition. Who replaced the heater core , You ? You didn't hook something up right , mess up some wiring etc...

What could keep my coil from firing ? I have the Ignition control signal and 12v. while cranking over engine at the top primary wiring of coil. Can you help me get spark?


Sounds like the security system is causing your problem. Is the "security" light flashing? If it is, turn the key on, leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing. Now, turn OFF the key, turn it back to ON, and then crank it. It should start. If the security light starts flashing again, go through the process again until it starts. This is resetting the security system after the battery has died, battery has been changed, radio was changed, instrument cluster was removed and replaced, etc. Hope this works for you.

On my 2001 Lincoln ls 3.9 security light on dash still flashing rapidly for a minute then pause 1 flash pause 6 flashes with key on. Now when I put key in ignition the rpms and speedometer gauges star


Well I am a certified mechanic and I would pull the air cleaner housing open the throttle shoot some carb cleaner in it and if it starts even if only for few seconds your fuel pump is bad. If it doesn't than you need to scan the car with a scanner for no start codes. You can rent a scanner at most automotive part stores for a deposit and when you return it undamaged you get your money back. Usually costs nothing. But if you don't have any pressure on the fuel rail that is most likely your problem. You can clear all the dashboard codes and lights with a scanner if they don't straiten it out on its own. Disconnect battery for a few minutes sometimes that will clear old codes. Only clear codes if you have found out that the fuel pump was bad otherwise you'll need them codes for figuring out the no start problem. Bryan ASE master certified mechanic.

The battery reset protocol usually means the 8 turns routine using the original keys with key fob transponders
Turning the key and moving the shift from park to drive and back again has helped some people

2001 highlander engine skipping cel on


Chances are its a spark plug or coil. You should have a trouble code in the computer for the cylinder in question. The flashing light means the problem was serious at the time.

Why wont my car start even after i tried the security reset. i turned key to on position for 10 minutes turned it off then tried to start it 3 times. security light still flashes


turn the key on and wait till the security light stops flashing ( this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn the key off then back on but do not try to start the engine and wait till the security light stops flashing ( again this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn key off then turn key on and start engine.

I just changed the battery in my 2000 chev


You need to reset the security system. Turn the key on. The security light should be flashing. Leave the key on for 11 minutes. The security light should stop flashing. Turn the key off. Turn the key on. Leave the key on for 11 min. again. Do the process a third time. It should start and run on the next key turn. ( also hook a battery charger to the truck while doing this 30 min. procedure. If the battery goes low at any time you will have to start over.)

Security light is flashing. car will not start.


the security system may need relearned. This may work. . . Turn the key to the on position and leave it there. It may take anywhere from 8-10 minutes for the security light to STOP flashing and go out. At this point, turn the key to off. Repeat this process 2 more times, a total of 24-30 minutes all together. After the security light has gone out the third time, you should be able to start the car. Hope this works for you
