Turn the key on to the start position and leave it there til the light goes out.Then turn the key off and try starting it.This is called the quick learn method.If this does not work then you have to get the codes from the theft deterrent module to find out what is causing the light to come on and not allowing the vehicle to start.Let me know what you find.Good luck.

Why wont my car start gauges and lights come on but wont crank no power going to soelinoid wire

If the security system has been reset ( no light on/flashing ) you may have a neutral safety switch problem, Will the vehicle crank over in neutral? In most cases, the neutral switch grounds the starter relay and allows it to operate. Does the starter relay connector have 2 powers? One constant and one with key on/cranking? If these power supplies are there, suspect the ground side of the relay to be the problem and possible neutral safety switch

Truck starts and then dies immediately. Runs with starter fluid. Has new fuel pump, compression checked, sensors good. What else can it be?

Have you considered the possibility of a theft or security system fault. Theft protection will cut power to fuel system if it does not pick up the key code. The transponder on the key could have lost its code or there could be a fault in the ecm "computer" that cuts power to fuel pump. Have you check fuel pump to see if it is getting power when vehicle cuts off immediately after start? That would be a good first place to start. Good Luck.

How to reset anti-theft system on a 2003 Infinity

If you have a check engine light on then you need to scan the codes. Before you do that, check all fuses, powers, and grounds for good contact and make sure there are no loose wires or any corrosion. if fuses, wires, powers and grounds all check out good. then you need to scan the codes and isolate if you are lacking fuel or spark. could be a simple ecu program or security reset. notice the security light when you go to crank it. does it blink, stay solid or flash in any sort of pattern? feel free to call if need be 4 2 3 3 2 7 4 1 0 8 Tim

1993 Nissan Altima The security light is blinking and the car wont turn over. it has a good battery. Is the flashing security light preventing the car from turning over?

Yes, the security system shuts power to the starter and fuel pump. You can try disarming by unlocking and locking the doors the power door locks switch (depends on model). Place the key in the ignition and set to ON, ALL doors closed!! Cycle the locks using the power locks button on the driver's door "lock" then "unlock" if this doesnt work, try same method with the ignition OFF. Otherwise your security system is malf.

Replace the Relay going from the starter that is bolted on the frame above the cooling fan. When the security system is enabled it cuts the power going to the fuel pump and disables it.
