Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

We lost our key to the car and went to the dealer and bought another one. When we try to start the car we can get it to start (with their special instructions) but the car won't stay running. What can we do now?

Did you activate the key propoerly when you bought it? It makes all the difference becuase of the chip in the key itself.

I have a 2006 CLS500. I lost the metal key to open the trunk. The battery went dead and I only have the starting key. I need to know how to start from the trunk or from anywhere outside the trunk?

If you call the dealership parts department with your VIN , they can order whichever key you need. Usually the key is the same for the entire car. Let me know if you need anything else.

2004 honda acoord keys locked out key6 light flashes on dash how do i reset

The green key light on the dash is your immobilizer system. If it flashes at you while you are cranking (no start). This means the key that you are using is not programmed to the immobi control unit. Try using another key. if all other keys are lost you'll have to get it down to you local honda dealer. it takes a special honda scan tool to program these keys to the control unit. If you don't want to spend money on a tow truck, ask you dealer about the Brake Code. This is a code specific to each vehicle. If your keys are lost/stolen you can input this Brake Code into the control unit by using your e-brake (special procedure). this will give you 10 free starts to get it to your dealer. (limp-in mode).
-hope this helps

How do I go about getting a key for my 1999 Ford Contour. The only key that was given to me was lost. I s/w a Ford dealer and they said the car is too old to give a copy of the key. Thank you

You need to contact the dealer for this .
Call them and they will instruct you what to do.
Newer cars are not easy task .
But the dealer will solve this problem

Bought a valet key for 2000 Buick (lost original ignition key). Tried the sequence explained to me by dealer but does not work. What else can I do?

The only 2 options you have at this point are as follows, Hope to some higher power you find the key, or take it to the dealer and have a new key cut and chipped, im sure that it has a securilock system, that makes it tough, Although the key itself isnt very expensive, you have to have a key cut by code, There is a special code designated to your key that can be looked up by the vin number of the vehicle and can be cut and programed that way.

Car won't start

Yes the flashing key is telling you that your security key for the ignition needs to be reprogrammed at the dealer somehow its lost its memory, the car should start and run for 10 seconds then shut off but that might only be Chrysler the dealer and they should be able to verify what ive said.
