Hi and welcome to Fixya!
As a first course of action, have the car be diagnosed. A scan tool can help, it will list the faulty codes and by then you'll know the fix.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Wont start and shows pic of car on dash with a lock through it


Sounds like the immobilizer is activated? Disconnect the battery for an hour and then reconnect it. It _should_ reset the alarm.

Mechanics changing a battery try to do it quickly, the ECM thinks someone is boosting the car. What they should do is use a couple of lengths of wire to keep the power to the car the whole time of swapping over the battery. That way power remains in the alarm system and immobilizer at all times.

Reset check engine light on 2000 avalon


stop the car and turn it off and don't forget to remove the key. the open the hood and find the battery. Then remove the negative battery terminal connector completely from the battery. with the battery disconnected turn on you headlamps as you would for night time driving. Wait an half an hour so all the current drains out the the electrical system. after the half hour TURN OFF THE HEADLAMPS BEFORE RECONNECTING THE BATTERY! Next reconnect the negative battery terminal connector back on the negative battery terminal don't forget to tighten it down. Put the key in the ignition turn the computer on to on BUT wait 5 seconds before actually starting the car, then start the car as normal and drive the car at least 25 miles 10 city 15 highway so the car can relearn all it functions again **Note first time start the car my be rough due that it need to relearn if it is acting rough apron start up let it idle for a bit before driving so it can calm down**

Car alarm will not shut off-- can not start vehicle--


with the key turned on disconnect the positive post of the battery and reconnect it again. Make sure you leave your window down incase the doors lock automatically.Once you have reconnected the battery try starting your car. I have seen this work several times but no quarantee. Also you will have to reset the code to your radio.Hope this helps.

Chevy cavalier z24 theft system light on


This is a easy fix. Lucky just follow the procedure and your car will start. This is a theft system shut down.
The procedure is. Disconnect battery for a minimum of 30 seconds. ( one post is OK. )
Reconnect battery and get in the car and start as usual 1 time only. When it starts and stops letthe key just return to run position as if it was running. Do not shut it off and if you do you must stert the procedure all over again. i usually put on the emergency brake before i start and that shuts of the driving lights etc.
Just leave the key in on running position and go have a coffee. it takes 15 to 20 minutes for the car to recycle the system. When you come back to the car the flashing theft light will either be off or solid.
Try to start again. If it doesn't go shut it off and turn back on and start as usual. It will start and run and stay running.
The reason you have this problem is something electronic was disconnected whe the battery was hooked up. always disconnect the battery before you touch anything electronic and you will not have this problem.
