Key indicator light on dashboard

I tried to start the car, but it would not. I noticed an indicator light that showed a key with a slash thru it. Is this a computer glitch.

From what I can find, your key is not a passive device and either the key or the receiver has lost its code.

My Cadillac cts 04 won't start... Every time I turn the key it won't even turn over... But the light that shows a car with a lock on it blinks what do I do


Sounds like the anti theft system is active m try this process. Turn the key on. Do not attempt to start. Wait 10 minutes. Turn key off. Turn key on. Wit for theft light to go off. Now attempt to start.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

I have a light showing on my dashboard of my VW passatt 2003 1.9 disel. It look a bit like a spring could u please help me out


I did not catch that it was a Diesel the first time. I had a Volvo with a VW/Audi Diesel at one time and it had a similar light for the glow plugs (the cylinder heater plugs). It came on momentarily when the key was first turned, but before starting the car. It would then go out when the cylinders were at the temperature to start the car, and I could then turn the key the rest of the way to start the car. Could this be it? They often do not come on in warm weather when they are not needed.
As far as determining which lamps are out, the easiest way is to have a friend walk around the car while you turn the different lights on and off, including the brakes and the turn signals. In the evening when you are parked, check the dashboard and the heater and radio controls to make sure that they are all lit, including the transmission indicator (PRNDL...). .Also, the lamp-out light can come one if a lamp is not fully into the socket, but you would notice a flicker then and not a steady light.

Starter will not engage anti theft light is on it is a 2005 cobalt


I found this on a website try this

1. Put the newly cut Master key into the keyway and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "security" indicator
light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN)
position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes (Do not remove the key.)
3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON
(RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (Do not remove the key.)
4. When the light goes off the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start
the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
All previously stored codes will be erased. To stop the process at any time, simply remove the key and use
an existing key to start the car.
