Red key used to lock and car won't start after that

Just bought a 98RL with a french manual.
So I've been tinkering with the red key for a while.
Now I'm having trouble starting the car.

Pls. help


Ps: Since I've got a french manual I've also been trying
to get hold of the key code to operate the audio.
Could had this been a factor in me getting to start the car?

If it's an automatic check fuse #15 wether it's a stick or automatic you should have power at the red & black wire coming out of your ignition switch when you turn key to start postion and power at the red wire going into switch at all times. if no power coming oit on the red/black wire you need an ignition switch. if there is power coming out of switch try putting car in nuetral (for auto trans). if still nothing you'll need to check for power at small wire going to starter when key is turned to start. if has power then need starter if no power you'll need to check starter interlock relay.

I lost the keys to an Acura rl 2000 I bought a new original switch with a red and a black key I already istalled but the car won't start


The keys need to be programmed to the immobilizer. Replacing the switch was unnecessary. Keys can be made to the existing locks.

Jaguar x-type 2.5 se problem with remote central locking


Do you smoke in the car? could be that the infra red sensor in the car (usually near the interior mirror) needs cleaning. I bought a Renault Scenic which had same problem, it would only unlock from very close to the car. After trying new battery in the remote I cleaned the sensor and never had any more problems. PS I assume you've tried a new remote battery?

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.


To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"
