2004 cadillac cts wont crank at all, i turn the key and try to start it but it doesn't crank or do anything just the dashboard light come on and the engine light flickers then it wont release the key


I had something similar happen on my 2004 CTS. The car would not crank, and I recall the security light was on the dash. The key could be turned off, but not quite far enough to be removed.
The key can be removed by sticking a small pin or screw driver in a hole under the steering column... maybe 2 inches from the actual steering wheel. I recall there is a small cover or plug in the hole that needs to be removed.
You can let it sit and occasionally try to start it. My did start once more.
I ended up having it towed to the GM dealer and they replaced the ECM for about $500? That took care of it for a couple years, until I recently sold it.

I have dodge caravan 2002 the engine light on the dash turned on so what i want to do to turn it off ?


If the engine light is on that means there is something wrong. Turn the key foward and back 3 times fast without starting the engine, after the 3rd time look at the odometer it will go blank and then it will give you some codes that start with "P" example:"P320" once you get those codes come back or google them and you'll find out what's going on. Good Luck.

What does trac mean?


It means you turned the traction control off or its not working.Most likely it means your traction control is off. There should be a button on your dash somewhere to turn it back on if you want.
to turn it off /on try this:-- START ENGINE SELECT DRIVE WHEN GENTLE ROLLING FOWARD PUT IN NEUTRAL AND TURN KEY FOWARD AS IF STARTING ALL THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH WILL COME ON. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Dead battery cannot open car door with key - 2000 mazda mellenia


this is a common problem with only using a key fob to get in.you should use the key once in a while to keep it free and operational.

spray some W-D40 in the key hole let it sit for a little while the try to put the key in the door and turn it back and foward untill it starts to move this may take a few minutes or 15min to unlock it but alittle bit of patience and tired fingers and hands and you'll be in.(after you get the lock free try using the key more often to save your self the head ache down the road)

'05 Chevy Malibu Wil Not Start


is the security light blinking on the dash? If so you need to rreprogram the key to the anti theft module. to do this, turn key to on...let sit for about 10 min or so until the security light flashes. turn key off.. count o 5. vehicle should start. if not then it will have to go to the dealer to have it specifically reprogrammed as the PCM and anti theft modules both no longer reconize the key code.

Vw jetta wont let me start it


It's an ignition problem. If you keep trying to turn over it will start. It's an anti theft device they installed. The little car with the flashing key. Someone likely tampered with your ignition before for this to happen.
