I called myself programming the new keys for my pt cruiser, but,it didnt take. At first it would start and run for a few seconds, now it wont turn over.what did I do wrong and how can I fix this?


Takes the master key to get it started again. The security gives you 3 tries to get the vehicle started, after the third time, it kills the starter.
2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Note: You must have two valid keys to add a new key to the system.
1. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position for at least three seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds.
Then, Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the first key.
2. Insert the second valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to
the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds. After 10 seconds, a chime will sound.
In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch
to the LOCK position and remove the second key.
3. Insert the new key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position.within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds, a single chime will
sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that
programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on again for
seconds and then turn off.
The new key is now programmed. The Remote Keyless Entry transmitter will
also be programmed during this procedure.
Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys.

Need to bypass my factory anti theft device on my 2001 PT Cruiser 5 speed


I believe you are referring to the immobilizer in your key for your car. Unfortunately there is not a way around this factory anti theft system. However most delearships have the ability program new keys for you.

If you had two valid keys that were already programed to the car's immobilizer you can simply buy another key with a programmable immobilizer chip, usually referred to as a sentry key. These keys are available at some hardware stores for cheaper then you would find at a dealership. So if you have the old keys and a new blank key you can follow the following procedure in most cars to program the new key:

1. Bring the replacement sentry key to a hardware store or dealership. Have it cut to match the original valid sentry keys.
  • 2. Place the first valid key into the PT Cruiser's ignition and turn to the ON position for a minimum of three seconds and a maximum of 15 seconds. Turn ignition switch off until it is in the LOCK position and remove the key.
  • 3. Within 15 seconds, insert the second valid key and turn the ignition to the ON position. Wait ten seconds or until a chime sounds and the vehicle security light begins to flash. Turn the ignition off until it is in the LOCK position and remove the key.
  • 4. Within 60 seconds, insert the new blank sentry key into the ignition switch and turn it to the ON position. Wait 10 seconds or until you hear a single chime and the vehicle security light stops flashing. Look for the indicator light on the dashboard. If it turns on for three seconds and then turns off, the key has been successfully programmed.

    How to do a self diagnostics code test on a Chrysler Concorde LXI 2001


    put key in ignition turn key to start position then off then to start then off then start and leave on. count the check engine light flashes. the first number will be a long flash then the numbers after will be short flashes, then a pause and then the next code will flash with the first number a long flash then followed by short flashes. count the flashes. if the first flash is a single flash and the next flash is say 3 quick flashes then this is code 13. these are a 4 number code system like 1013 is the same as a code 13. I hope you understand as its difficult until you get the hang of it. Chrysler has a code at the beginning to indicate codes starting and one at the end to indicated codes ending. and will repeat the cycle 3 times. it maybe easier to get them pulled using a code reader.

    My 1998 ford expedition won t start and the theft


    the light blinks when the system is armed. Normal.

    Your key has to be able to communicate with the receiver in the ignition area. Does your other key work ok?

    Anti-Theft The passive anti-theft system (PATS) uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
    • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the PATS module.
    • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the vehicle powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is allowed to operate; this allows the vehicle to start.
    • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the PATS module, or if no encoded key is detected, then the vehicle PCM is disabled.
    The PATS module, located under the driver side instrument panel, communicates the state of the security system to the PCM via the module communications network. The PCM, based on the communications from the PATS module, will determine if the vehicle's engine will be enabled to start. If the PCM prevents the vehicle from starting because of PATS, the PCM will store a DTC in memory.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The anti-theft vehicle protection system utilizes the THEFT indicator, located in the instrument cluster (10849), when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN/START position. The indicator provides system prove out and operating status to the customer or technician.
    Each PATS ignition key holds electronics that give each key a unique ID code.
    The PATS will activate the indicator signal when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN/START position. The THEFT indicator will turn ON for two seconds, then turn OFF.
    If the THEFT indicator flashes for one minute or more, this indicates that there was no key code received.
    When the vehicle ignition switch is placed in either RUN or START, the PATS module requests the ignition key ID code. The PATS module requests the ignition key ID code by supplying power, ground, and the carrier signal to the transceiver to energize the ignition key. After the energize period, the key transmits its ID code to the transceiver module, which sends it to the PATS module.
    The PATS module then compares the received KEY ID code to those stored in memory (16 maximum). If the ID matches, the PATS module sends an enable signal to the PCM over the module communication network.
    The passive vehicle protection system utilizes the engine management capabilities of the PCM to enable or disable the vehicle engine. The module communication network is used to send and receive messages to and from the PCM.
    Within one second after engine start, the PCM must receive an enable signal from the PATS module through the module communication network or the engine is disabled before the vehicle can be moved.
    If the PATS module recognizes a stored ignition key code but there is a module communication network concern preventing the PCM from recognizing the start enable signal from the PATS module, the vehicle engine will be disabled. If this happens, the PATS module will flash the THEFT indicator for one minute, then flash diagnostic trouble code 16 ten times to indicate there is a problem with the module communication network circuits or the PCM is not responding properly.
    The passive vehicle protection system will disable the vehicle from starting if there is a:
    • Damaged encoded key.
    • Unprogrammed key.
    • Non-encoded key (key has no electronics).
    • Wiring concern.
    • Transceiver concern.
    • Control module concern.
    • Module communications network concern.

    99 GMC Sierra Pickup: Crank but no start. starts with starting fluid but dies. changed out the fuel filter. still not start. Do I have a bad Fuel Pump? Security light flashes then goes solid after 10 min....


    The theft light issue is a good observation. Have you replaced the key tumbler or an ignition component lately? Has there been a lightning storm close very recently?

    What the flashing security light is indicating is an attempt to relearn the key you are using.
    Turn the key to run position, allow light to flash for 10 minutes, when light stops flashing turn ignition to OFF position for 5 seconds, turn ignition to run position and start over. Do this for 3 consecutive cycles, the the theft system will relearn the key cylinder code and store it once again.
    Try that first before you go any further.
    Let me know what you find.

    Set the keyless entry


    TS06 DEC 05 Keyless Entry - Transmitter(s) Inoperative

    There was a recall in DEC. 05 for this particular vehicles remote transmitter system....though im not sure if they would do service free of charge now...

    Moving along...if you have no working transmitter, you have to do the following to get it working again:

    * Ensure vehicle audio PIN number is known or audio PIN security system is deactivated prior to battery disconnection.
    * Ensure a door is open
    * Disconnect the negative battery cable, wait minimum 5 seconds then reconnect
    * Within 20 seconds of reconnecting the battery cable, insert the keyin ignition then cycle the ignition key from the "ACC" position to the"ON" position 20 times, leaving the key in the "OFF" position after thetwentieth turn.
    * the vehicle's indicators will flash 20 times to indicate successfulentry. NOTE: Should the indicators fail to flash, wait 5 seconds thenquickly turn the ignition switch from the "ACC" to "ON" position 10times, leave the ignition "OFF" after the 10th turn and wait 15 secondsthen recycle the ignition switch 20 times.
    * the vehicle's indicators will flash 20 times to indicate successful entry.
    * within 10 seconds of the indicators having ceased flashing, press the button once on each transmitter.
    * turn the ignition key to the "ON" position to lock in and exit from the programming mode.

    And if you have even 1 transmitter that does work, its not nearly as difficult:

    * ensure a door is open
    * remove key from ignition
    * lock the doors using the transmitter
    * unlock the doors using the transmitter

    Within 20 seconds of unlocking, insert key in ignition, turn theignition key from the "ACC" position to the "ON" position 20 times,leaving the key in the "OFF" position after the twentieth turn.

    The vehicle's indicators will flash 20 times to indicate successful entry.

    Within 10 seconds of the indicators having ceased flashing, press thebutton once on each transmitter. Once finished, turn the ignition keyto the "ON" position to lock in and exit from the programming mode.

    Hope this helped,
