2005 Ford Taurus will not start, only a single click happens.


Security system ( anti-theft System ) ,if this was the cause of the no start you wouldn't hear any clicks . Anti-theft system disables the starter . When does the light flash ? All the time , flash real fast when trying to start the vehicle ?

Clicking under the hood, dashboard lights keep flashing. Wont start!


Try this. It sounds like you need to reset the ECM (engine control module) and the anti-theft system.

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

My 2008 Mitsubishi Galant suddenly has no power at all. Brand new battery. Began with short beeps when key removed, then placed key in for a few seconds, all power restored properly until I tried to s


sound's as though the vehicle anti theft has kicked in ,was this directly after fitting battery or did the vehicle start and been driven and then this issue arose , if the latter then i'd get the alternator charge rate checked as may well have not recharged the battery when being driven and now the anti theft thinks as there is a drop in power the car is being stolen, contact a mitsubishi dealer for the reset procedure and then check the alternator is charging ok

I have a 2001 Cadillac deville that will not start when I turn the key it clicks for a few seconds and nothing. The service anti thift soon came on, on the dash the day before the radio stopped working...


It's hard to say for sure since it sounds like it could be many things. If you turn the key and you hear a few clicks coming from the engine and then nothing, it could mean a very very weak battery. Your first step should be trying a different (fully charged) battery. Good luck.

Sound like a ignition switch problem, if you can hear clicking sound; if not, check aftermark alarm or some anti-theft system activated. Confirm battery charge!

1997 Chevy Cavalier z24. Theft Light blinks. Car will start for 2-3 seconds and then die. I read online and tried a few things but won't work. I turn the key so the radio and lights come on and left them...


Sounds like a dead battery. Clean the battery posts and terminals and charge it up. Then give it a try. If it starts go to auto parts store and get the charging system tested.

Vehicle won't start after replacng alternator.


sounds like a bad power connection or dead battery. when you place a load on the system a poor connection or dead battery will allow voltage to drop below norms causing everything to shut down. when you release the key and the load is removed, some voltage returns to power the lights and displays.

Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?


Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.
