Try using spare key might be the anti theft system does not recognize this key also if you have a remote car starter use it if it starts this way you have to get a new key but if not you might need a new ignition switch and then dealer has to reprogram the anti theft system. try lock smith key places some can use your vin number to re-cut you a new key much cheaper then the dealer.

I have a 2007 odessey and i seperated the key from the key pad now van will turn over but wont start,i put keypad back on key but still wont start turns over but wont start any suggestions?


If you damaged a chip in the key, it won't start. You will have to get a replacement. You'll need the VIN# and go to the dealer to have one cut. Wouldn't hurt to take your key with you.

Lost my keys to my 2003 expedition my son took key switch out put a new one but anti theft wont let it start I found the old key how can I start it


You may be able to hold the original key close to the key lock and try starting the truck with a valet key that does not have a chip.
The sensor for the chip is close to the cylinder.

A second key was cut at a lock smith but the vehicle will not start


if the key turns and finds the spring loaded start position, fully
then the key is good.
you failed to say,
wont crank
or wont start
to diametrically different systems.

if it wont crank , it can not start, short of being push started, with manually tranny , unstated transmission, makes my comments on the key line , useless.

New key has to be programmed to match computer in vehicle ! It takes 2 new keys and a programmer to accomplish this ! You will go crazy trying to chase it down , so just call a locksmith or someone witha programmer now before you damage something in the sustenta !

The security light on car wont start


You should try a different key if available. If no other key is available, you can try cleaning the chip embedded in the key

Is reading theft system and wont start


Try cleaning your key off... those keys have security chips and if you get the oily or dirt on them your car wont start. Or try using a spare key if you have one... Good Luck!

Key is stuck in ignition and car wont start


When the battery is dead, the key cannot be removed. You can either charge the battery, and remove the key or, there is a access panel (small) under the steering column, remove this, and push a small pluger to the left, while holding the plunger, remove the key.
