This usually isnt a problem with chrysler vehicles.Do you have a good battery in it now? Will the starter engage?Try charging the battery overnight and doing a load test on it or take it to your local auto parts for the load test.Good Luck!!!!

How do you tell if it needs charged or not?


Hi Kelly, A fully charged battery is 12.4 to 12.6. and when the motors running it's 14.3 to 14.6... Three reasons your battery is flat (isn't charging), You have a faulty battery, A power drain or you have a faulty alternator... Clean your battery terminals and If you don't have a multimeter then Try jump starting your flat battery and driving your car for at least ten minutes then turned the motor off and try starting it WITHOUT jump start, If the battery's still flat then it's the battery, If your car starts straight away but won't start the next day then you have a power drain... If you jump start your flat battery and go for a ten minute drive but during that drive the motor dies without turning off the key then it's the alternator....
A mechanic or an auto electrician can usually test Free of charge if you can get it there....CHEERS..

I have a fiesta 04 plate and the immobiliser is on how do i turn it off


They are all different but many systems will work if you leave key turned to on for 5 to15 minutes or so (need good battery) and then click right to start. Bigger issue may be chip key or ignition "reader" in vehicle may have lost contact due to age.

MAY BE THE FACTORY IMMOBILISER IS DEAD OR SOMETIMES THE KEY HAS A BATTERY IN IT AND THE CAR CORROSPONDES WITH THE KEY AS THE IGNITION IS TURNED ON , THIS TURNS THE IMMOBILISER OFF

Cherrokee jeep immobilised, after battery went flat. jumped battery, disconnected battery and reconnected to try to re set alarm, phobb works,on alarm but when key turns no turn over,?


If by turning over you mean that the engine isn't turning when you turn the key, then you have a failure in the starting system. (check battery, connections, relay and starter) If the engine turns but dosen't start, try locking and unlocking the drivers door to re-set the security system.

Suspected immobiliser problem


Immobilizer unit is connected in series with the neutral safety switch.

Next time your Luxes GS fail to start.....put you foot on the brake,shift to NEUTRAL (N) and turn the key.

A shorting/shorted neutral will draw power and kill the battery.

Give it a try.

Please post result on the comment window.

Flat battery caused immobiliser problems


1-insert and remove key from ignition two times

2-close and open driver door two times

3-insert and remove key once from ign.

4-close and open drvr door twice

5-insert key into ign.,then close driver door

6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.

7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.

8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second

9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and 9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.

You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works

2001 Jaguar S-type won't start


Check if your transmission really is in park. I once had the same problem and it was fixed by moving the stick in and out of the park stand for a couple of times. Then the red light illuminating the "P" came on and i could start again.

Has to do with the transmission cable that tends to get a bit loose.
