There is a sensor mounted on top of the ignition switch that looks at the magnetic "chip" in your car key when you stick the key in. If it doesn't think you have the right key (because of a defective key or "chip") it won't let the ignition switch start the car. Good chance that the TWICE module is toast. See the dealer about it. The only way to tell is to hook it up to a tech2 diagnostic machine. Eventually the car will not start.

2008 Ford Expedition el limited sometimes starts great but most times does nothing when try to start everything still comes on and has power but does not turn overrun less I keep turning keys off and back...


Could be the key switch, or the starter, or another component.
You would need to check for power at the starter terminals when the key is in the start position.

Tried the steering wheel and key at same time still wont turn


Tap the lock cylinder with the handle end of a league screwdriver with the key removed. You can be faily agressive when you do this. Then insert the key and try to turn. Try this several times. If it finally does turn replace the lock cylinder immediately. The key needs to be in the run position in order for the lock cylinder to come out. If you can't get it to turn the lock cylinder will need to be drilled out.

Hi, It can be done in several ways. You can try either:
1) Turn key to position 2.
2) Press/release the R button to show the next service due light. Release button.
3) Turn key to Off.
4) Press and HOLD the same R button to view the service light, THEN, within 2 seconds, turn key to position 2.
5) Wait up to 10 second and the light will reset to show new service .


or 1. Insert the key and switch the ignition to position "I".2. Press the display button on the multifunction steering wheel until the "D Service" notification is displayed.
3. Press and hold the reset button located to the left of the instrument cluster until the "D Service" message resets.

Or have it reset by technician when your computer module is checked.

How to turn off change oil light on the 2004 Chevy Colorado Pick-up truck ?


1. Turn the ignition to ON do not start.Engine OFF dash board lights ON.
2. Press and release the reset button in the driver information center (DIC) until the OIL LIFE message is displayed.
3. Once the alternating OIL LIFE and RESET messages appear on the DIC display, press and hold the reset stem until several beeps sound. This confirms the OIL LIFE system has been reset.
4. Turn the key to lock. If the CHANGE OIL message comes back on when you start the engine, the ENGINE OIL LIFE system has not reset. Repeat the procedure
Alternate Method
1. Turn the ignition key to ON with the engine off.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. Several beeps sound. This confirms the oil life system has been reset.
3. Turn the ignition key OFF.
4. If the CHANGE/OIL message comes back on when you start the engine, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure
I use the second method, it is more universal and it works for Chevy Venture too.

I DID THE OIL CHANGE AND NOW THE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON SAYING I NEED TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL NEED TO RESET


With the key on but the engine off press the ODO/tripA/TripB reset stick several times until the message center says press reset to enter system check. Press reset stick twice and oil life will be displayed. Press it again and it will tell you to hold it if you want to reset oil life. When it shows 100% turn the key off and you're finished.

If you have the 3 button system you're going to press the set up buttons until you see oil life and then press the reset button.

I wan to clear a maintenance request message?


Put your key in and turn to the 1st position, with your other hand hold down the odometer reset until the triangular engine light flashes 3 times. At which point, turn the key to the second position and release the odometer reset. Then finally turn the key off. Next time you restart, scroll through the messages. The maintenance request should be gone. There you go...

Intermitent start


A little clarification: the starter relay and starter solenoid are the same piece of equipment -- just different names for the same device.
