My 1999 aruora secrity light is blinking and my car wont start. If it does it only runs for bout 3 sec then dies again . Thats only when its been sitting for a couple day . Nobofy can figure out whats...


Sounds like a problem with the security. It immobilizes the fuel injector circuit when the security is on.

Try this: turn key to on, and wait several minutes (up to 30 minutes) to see if light stops blinking. If it does stop, turn key back off, then try to start it. If the security light goes off, it may have reset. If it does not stop blinking or staying on steady, the dealer will charge outrageous prices to fix it-possibly over $800. Google "passlock bypass" or "passkey bypass" or "VATS bypass" to see your options. A site called newrockies sells a module (about $200) that forever bypasses the whole security system.

Immobilizer light stays on engine won't start


Make sure the key isn't on a keyring, and if you have a spare key try holding it against the ignition barrel whilst trying to start the car. Failing that, it's an auto electrician job. China OBD2 car diagnostic tools wholesale on CareUCar

My '98 Ford Taurus won't start


"Security" or Key-shaped light flashes on the dashboard ? Your car might be equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probably see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed.

Electronic immobilizer


most likely cause is the gauge cluster, this will have to be tested and service by your local dealership because the dash cluster and keys have to be coded. I have seen the immobilizer loose it's coding for apearantly no reason. therefore have them recode cluster and see if problem goes away, if it doesn't the gauge cluster will have to be replaced.

I turn the key and get nothing. The battery checks good and I have power to the starter. Dash lights come on. Battery leads are clean and tight as well as the negative cable to ground on the engine.


My Nissan Primera EGT (1993 Reg'd) has an immobiliser, which was causing a similar problem. Turned on ignition and nothing. The immobilizer was faulty to the starter motor, so we disconnected it from the starter and left the immobilizer on the fuel line. Starts now, no problem and the immobilizer would still stop the potential thieves as they'd have no idea without the immobilizer key why the engine will no more than start then stutter to a big full stop!!.
The 240SX is probably a more modern Nissan but I bet there's an immobilizer built into it somewhere. You may need to take it to a Nissan expert or Dealer to check out. It's almost definitely something weird like an immobilizer or maybe the starter motor's blown it, but then you'd have heard the graunching noises that starter motors make when they're about to clap out, they don't usually just go. There may also be some disconnection of wires to the alternator, which amplifies the spark to the engine, but the starter motor would still turn, your engine just wouldn't fire up with the too weak spark. So if nothing moves, it's most likely an immobilizer or possibly (but unlikely) a sudden death starter motor.
