Well alarm must shut of the car. Try unlocking all with remote or manually Remove the fuse install see if it runs. Check for other fuses. Remove battery power until reset ECM and restart the process. Was heater/fan/battery under large consumption. Did you quickly try to start the engine.

Replaced sterring colum now it wont start

S (Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer System-NATS) has the following immobilizer functions:  Since only NVIS (NATS) ignition keys, whose ID nos. have been registered into the ECM and IMMU of NVIS (NATS), allow the engine to run, operation of a stolen vehicle without a NVIS (NATS) registered key is prevented by NVIS (NATS). That is to say, NVIS (NATS) will immobilize the engine if someone tries to start it without the registered key of NVIS (NATS).  All of the originally supplied ignition key IDs have been NVIS (NATS) registered. If requested by the vehicle owner, a maximum of five key IDs can be registered into the NVIS (NATS) components.  The security indicator lamp blinks when the ignition switch is in "OFF" or "ACC" position. Therefore, NVIS (NATS) warns outsiders that the vehicle is equipped with the system.  When NVIS (NATS) detects trouble, the security indicator lamp lights up while ignition key is in the "ON" position.  NVIS (NATS) trouble diagnoses, system initialization and additional registration for other NVIS (NATS) ignition key IDs must be carried out using CONSULT-II hardware and CONSULT-II NVIS (NATS) software. Regarding the procedures for NVIS (NATS) initialization and NVIS (NATS) ignition key ID registration, refer to CONSULT-II OPERATION MANUAL IVIS/NVIS.  When servicing a malfunction of the NVIS (indicated by lighting up of Security Indicator Lamp) or registering another NVIS ignition key ID no., it is necessary to re-register original key identification. Therefore, be sure to receive ALL KEYS from vehicle owner. System Composition NIEL0174 The immobilizer function of the NVIS (NATS) consists of the following:  NVIS (NATS) ignition key  NVIS (NATS) immobilizer control unit (IMMU) located in the ignition key cylinder  ECM  Security indicator lamp.

Wont start has no power to dash no power period wont crank over

Remove and clean the battery cables (wear goggles) and if that doesn't yield any results have the batter tested by a local parts store, it is free. If you need a battery don't go cheap, get the OEM GM/Delco battery. they last for years

I have a 1999 lumina that wouldnt start. Ive replaced the battery, the altanator, the starter had my key checked for the code at the dealer. After I replaced the battery, the car cranked up great the first...

There are 3 main parts of the Antitheft security system that can fail and cause the SECURITY light to come on. Just because the key is good, doesnt mean that the ignition/lock cyclinder and TDM (Theft Deterrent Module) computer are good also. The problem might be farther down the line. At the high cost of these parts, id suggest just bypassing the whole entire system. These things are known to fail and average failing twice during the life of your car.

1993 Chevy s10 Blazer. Headlights, dash lights, and motor stalled while driving. Wouldn't restart. Replaced light switch and fuel pump. It will start with starting fluid but shuts off when burnt off....

sounds like a bad, burnt wire, or a blown fusible link. It runs on starter fluid or gas put in the air system, but the fuel pump, (electric) is not working. These types of problems can be hell to track down. Fusible links can appear good, but be bad. At any rate, its not any of the fuses inside the vehicle, it's either one under the hood in that box or a fusible link or bad wire somewhere under the hood. Basically your whole electrical system is out, so I would check main leads. Does the battery stay up even tho it's just setting? If it stays up, is not a dead short. Good luck, fixing it will be easy, but finding it a real pain.

Right signals not workin and some fuses are not workin even when chage

while the fuses not working is normal for most of the cars system, it appears the multi-switch is broken. ther fuses will be fine, and most likely have nothing ot do with the turn signal problem.
