How can i bypass the alarm/immobiliser on Autowatch 446RLI the car battery died, after charging the car battery the car won't start. it is dead quite when turning the key even thou the dash is lit.


Try getting a friend to boost start your battery with his vehicle and see if your car will crank. If your car cranks over - you have a faulty battery.

Check your battery leads, particularly the black earth lead where it connects to the engine/bodywork.
It's worth pointing out that a failed battery will charge up to a certain extent - however there isn't sufficient power in that battery to crank the engine even though all your dashboard lights are illuminated.
Get somebody to try boost-starting your battery first.

If you're sure that your battery is ok (or if connected to another vehicle): Put your ignition key in and turn it on/off a few times. Leave it in the 'on' position for 2-3 minutes. Give the system time to re-recognise the key

It actually sounds to be battery problem

Car keeps dying starting


Try replacing your battery. It takes a lot of power to start your motor but only a little to run lights etc. When you get a boost from another car your using the other cars power to start yours.

I have a 1995 GMC Sonoma that will not start when turn ignition switch lights will come on etc but engine will not turn over battery is good etc but nothing happens


Make sure all the ends on your battery cables are clean and tight. I got a tow in because my car would not try to start even tried boosting to no avail. All my lights and radio was working but they said the cable was corroded and would not let the full power work. We replaced the battery cables and worked like new now.

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

the battery is totally to the point that not enough amps are being received from it,, so a jump won't even help, charge it completely ,, the lights and other items on the car require small amperage and 12 volts,, the starter requires a bunch of amps to turn it over, after you do that ,, check the alternator you can use a meter on the battery posts with the car running, and should have a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts

Car wont start


It is the battery - you must not have the cables securely placed on the terminals. The same thing happened to me a few months ago.

I'm thjinking your fusebox is under your dashboard as well. check the fuses one by one for faulty fuses or half burnt out fuses. if that's not it check the back of the fuse box. You'll have lots of wires and connectors coming out of it so you wanna be careful. see if you can find any wires that seem burnt or worn out. It may just be a stripped wire that's causing a short
