You have a relay sticking under the dash. If you do it yourself, go under there and start pulling relays until you find the one that makes the lights go out and that is probably the one that makes it start too.

The battery was changed on my car. after new one installed the alarm went off. the guy push the black button and turned the key. now the alarm wont work. how do i get it workind again? .


the guy pushed a button under my dash turned the key and car started

you need to know where that push button is under the dash

if you cant find it your self ... ring the place back for instructions

not nice but
you may have to get them to call out and show you or
tow the car back to where you got the battery fitted

The dash lights stay on, drain my battery, after having it jumped my car wont turn off while the key is out of the ignition until i open the driver door then the engine cuts off. but my dash lights glow...


if the key is out, and turned off, is key in off posistion (look)
if off and you have current drain, that is a problem.
your post is confusing, (car wont turn off, what does that mean)
engine stays running, or just lamps stick one,
be clear what sticks on, and we can fix this easy.
im a retired, ET, we can do this step by step.

if the engine stick on , key off, the ignition switch is bad. period.
and grossly unsafe condition ,if ever.

1999 lincoln navigator turns over won't start dash board lights stay on with key out.


sounds like antitheft system is acting up..needs reprogramed maybe..pull the negative cable with the key on....kills everything..then shut the key off..reconnect the negative.. turn the key to run position for a few seconds(resets all factory presets) see if it will start..

Electrical problems


Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens.
But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much.
Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over

My 94 camry (2.2L) wont turn over. hit the starter and it started, so i changed it. next day same issue. lights stay bright during the attempt to start, interior clock and radio i notice go dim/off while...


what lights? headlights? dash lights? I would check the connections. If its the starter usually you will hear a heavy "click" when you turn the key.

My 2007 dodge caliber wont start my radio and lights come on but it just wont start i need some solutions


there should be a single red light on the dash around the speedometer, if it dosent turn off after 5 seconds after you turn the car on it means the car dosent recgnoize the computer chip thats in your key... check that first, if the light stays on then your key is bad

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.
