Question about 1997 Audi A4

1 Answer

If I turned the ignition key to start but the car does not start immediately, a red light with key symbol will begin to flash continuously and the car will not start again until the light goes off. This is particularly the case where the car turns off while in traffic; to start again, you have to wait until the flashing light goes off. This is disturbing

Hi, if you insert your key and turn to on position with out it turning over/starting immediately, and the light flashes with the car&key symbol, then it is a problem on the key and the imobiliser is not disabling properly.It's either you have the batteries changed in the key or your key might need reprogramming.

Security light flashes yellow then red. Please Help!


For some odd reason Chevy sometimes has there stereos connected to the security system. Check the fuse to make sure it didn't blow. You probably have vats security which is the worst thing ever made. I had that on my 02 firebird and had nothing but vats issues constantly.

Why does the red light om my 2002 crown vic flash fast when I attemp to start it


Which red light? The one on top of the dash? If so, there are two cases where that light will flash rapidly: If you use the wrong programmed key, it will immediately start flashing rapidly when you turn on the ignition and try to start the car. If the light is steady and then starts flashing rapidly after a few seconds when you turn on the ignition or try to start the car, you are using the correct programmed key but the engine computer has a problem or has failed.

Turn ignition car starts and then immediately turns off again


Please ask a local mechanic to have a look as this sort of fault is not uncommon and could be the ignition key chip so try spare key ,a faulty ECU or even something simple like a mass air flow sensor or a blocked catalytic exhaust so its favourite to ask a local man then post what he says for verification

Immobiliser is not turning off and not allowing the engine to start


is it a stick immobiliser?
If your vehicle does not start and the LED continues to flash while the Ignition is 'ON', this means that the Immobiliser system has not recognised the transponder stick.
Simply turn the Ignition 'OFF' then back 'ON' again. If the Status LED continues to flash, move the transponder stick closer to the key barrel until the LED stops flashing and turns 'OFF'.
If the transponder stick on the key ring does not disarm the immobiliser or the
transponder stick is misplaced, you can override the system by entering a 5-digit override number. Each vehicle has a unique 5-digit override number. This number is recorded on the
customer’s owner’s manual. If the customer loses their owner’s manual / override number, the number can be found by locating the vehicle’s Daewoo Stock Number (D.S.N). The customers override number is the last 5 digits of their D.S.N.
9748811.jpg
Overriding the system using the example 5 digit code 2,1,0,6,2
Important Note: 10 flashes of the Status LED represent the number ‘0’.
1. Remove the Transponder from the Key Ring.
2. With the system armed (LED flashing slowly) Turn the ignition ON/OFF 5 times, with the final position being off.
3. The LED will turn solid red for 2 seconds and then begin to flash.
4. When the LED flashes twice (2), turn the ignition ON. (number 2 was entered)
5. Turn the ignition OFF and wait for the LED to flash once (1) and then turn the ignition ON. (number 1 was entered)
6. Turn the ignition OFF and wait for the LED to flash ten (10) times and then turn the ignition ON. (number 0 was entered)
7. Turn the ignition OFF and wait for the LED to flash six (6) times and then turn the ignition ON. (number 6 was entered)
8. Turn the ignition OFF and wait for the LED to twice (2) and then turn the ignition ON.(number 2 was entered) The LED will turn solid red, which means the system is now overridden and the vehicle can be started. If an incorrect number is entered in, wait 11 flashes then start the procedure again.
NOTE: This is a one-event override. Once the ignition is turned off, the vehicle will passively immobilise after 30 seconds. If your 5 digit override number does not override the system, the chances are that you entered the wrong number. If this is the case, you’ll need to re-enter the override number
and try it again.

I do not have a vehicle manual so need to know: The car will not start --has been starting with hesitation for few days--and on the dash is a red flashing light with a key symbol--what does this...


If you find a red key flashing it means that the car has got antitheft system fitted. Is your car alarmed? What about the key, has it got a remote?
