  1. This could be due to a failed instrument cluster/bad solder joints. It could also be a sensor failing once the engine starts, causing the rest of the system bus to shut down. You will need to inspect the wiring for any damage, corrosion on the terminals, etc. Pull the instrument cluster out and check the solder joints. Many times the solder will break contact causing the bus to shut down. If you find bad solder joints, either resolder the joints, or have an electrician fix them for you.
  2. It may be a good idea to let a dealership check out the electronics on your vehicle, or an Automotive Electrician that has all of the required test tools to track down a problem like this.

    Also, in some cases, you could have a faulty Ignition Switch, but since you can start the vehicle, I doubt this is the problem.

    The instrument cluster is the cluster of gauges in your dashboard. It includes your Malfunction Indicator Lamps, Speedometer and other gauges. You will need to pull this cluster out to check the solder joints on the back of the cluster.

Programing a key fob


1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.
If this doesnt work, you may have a failure in your system. If the security light is on, and the reprogram doesnt work, you might want to look into bypassing that antitheft system.

2006 pontiac torrent shut down car will just crank, not start


The factory alarm is not to be tampered with as you can reset it but not disconnect it as it's part of the main fuel injection system. Do you have the right key? Just because it turns and cranks doesn't mean it has the right code. the security light off with the key on ut not cranking? If it stays on you do have a security problem. The system can be reset ( if the battery is good, and hot. Trun the key to crank and letgo the security light will but on or blinking . Leave the key on till the light goes out (around 15 minutes. Once it's out turn the key off then back on and the security light will be back on again. again wait till it goes out turn off then on again till the light goes out. Now turn the key off wait a few seconds trun it on and crank the engine. If it starts then it's reset. Sometimes I've had to do this more than three times to get it to reconize the key as the right one. rember a store cut key won't ever work as it doesnt have the (brain in it the the factory key does. Lets say your wrong, about the security system. The fuel pumps go bad like crazy and its thier season to fail. They fail quicker if you $5 the car alot. (runing on empty) Was the check engine light on as it ran the last time it was running? If so the codes need to be retieved and repaired. A scanner will find the security enabled on too.

How do trun off my check engine ligth on a 1995 honda accord lx


1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button.
2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off.
3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done.
