    So I take it that I should just take out the bulb and not worrie about it?

My engine light has come on also, I think the mechanic finally took out the bulb to cure my problem. But it has been driven hard, however look into your manifold intake gasket for problems; just a guess from my experience in a total engine overhaul due to oil pump going out with a teenager driving it till block cracked......Brother.

Engine turns over but won't start on first try. Clicking sound coming from inside dash when trying to start car. After three or four revolutions of engine the engine finally starts, but labored almos

Glad to know this solution. The Format of Fixya sent me this cure as at some point I answered a problem of your make and model of car. It does not reference if I answered your problem or what I said as a solution. Chip problems may have been mentioned, and a new ignition switch may be a better solution if a Mechanic is receiving pay to work on someone else's car. Its fine for your own car repair. Thanks

1999 vauhall zarira flashing engine light,starts but want run

Hi when you say it starts do you mean it turns engine over but not running , if so open you key fob up to see if the small transponder chip is still there it will be on the side of the main prt of the fob itself as most of the time these fall out when keys are dropped and deprecate losing the transponder chip if it is still there and no spare key you will have to get it recoded/ chipped

Your ignition takes a specific key, they are chipped. If the ignition was changed and the decoder wasn't , this is the problem. You may be able to call a dealer ship and give the VIN number and get the measurement in ohms of the chip, Maybe. Then go to a hard ware store and they can duplicate the key you have with a chip key. Be prepared , this is not a $2.00 key

Found key taped to ignition box under the steering colum taped to the box i untaped the key now the jeep starts then stalls and a light on the control panel with a key inthe middle is blinking and it just...

The normal key of your car has a chip in it, without that chip the security system is activated and the motor shut down - the blinking light is to signal that. The previous owner has put that key there as to use a regular/simple key, much cheaper than a chipped key . Put the taped key back where you have found it and it will all go back to normal.

It will, the chip generally "tricks" the computer into thinking more air is coming into the motor, so it dumps more fuel into the motor. The outcome is a rich exhuast, which causes the 02 sensors to give a different reading than what the air sensor is giving. So the computer will read as if there is a problem.
