Car getting started then cuts off after 2 seconds.Its starter related issue.Either the starter is faulty or battery to starter connection is loose or got short in between.It has to be checked and replaced.Get the voltage checked from battery to starter.The battery should show 12 volts if fully charged.

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.


Make sure that all the doors are closed and unlocked and wait for dome light to go out before starting.


Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch


Open drivers door


3 on/lock


Close/open drivers door


Wait 8 secs


On/lock/on (MY06-07) OR 2 on/lock OR on/lock (MY08)

Audi a4 problem


I had a similar problem on my Audi A4 1.8T after three seperate trips to different garages I was told I needed a new ignition and it could only be re-coded at an Audi dealer - was told it would cost in the region of £500. As the car was not worth much more than this I did a little research myself and found that the ignition key may have been intermittenly losing its code (as sometimes the car would start ok) I had a new key cut at my local key specialist at a cost of £20 and its been fine ever since (that was over 2 years ago)
Hope this helps

Car starts ok then cuts out


HI,HANNAH,I SUSPECT YOU HAVE AN IMMOBILIZER PROBLEM.IF THERE IS A ORANGE LIGHT FLASHING ON THE CLUSTER WITH AKEY IN IT THEN IT IS THE IMMOBILIZER.THE PROBLEM WOULD MORE LIKELY BE THE DATA FROM THE KEY IS NOT GETTING TO THE IMMOBILIZER CONTROL UNIT,USUALLY A BAD CONNECTION AT THE READER COIL ON THE IGNITION.YOU MUST CLOSE THE TERMINALS SLIGHTLY AND INSULATE THE WIRING SEPERATELY.ANDY

My 89 isuzu trooper will start and run great as long as i keep the key all the way engaged 4 or 5 secs after i release it will die can you help


This is most likely a faulty ignition switch, when you release the key and it cuts the engine this is a lost live feed to the coil if petrol or stop soenoid if diesel
check ignion switch for a live feed to the coil/stop solenoid when cranking
