connection problem, somewhere. check battery cables-both, and connection at starter, and the battery ground on the body. May need to remove the conn.'s, clean off corrosion and re-tighten. If that doesn't fix, then start at the power distribution center under hood (probably near battery) and check your main power relays and/or circuit breakers. Hope this helps.
hmm you have an alarm system , immobilizer or other security feature ?? I'm betting that you do,, The way these things work is that it taps into the starter system and other systems and functions like a relay so if its isnt ingaged the car wont start,, now your problem is that you jumped the vehicle and I'm sure you connected both leads to the battery ,, when you were supposed to connect the POS to the battery and the negative to the cars body or engine.. Now what you did was send too much power to the security system causing damage to the security device.. Have it replaced or removed that will solve your problem..
Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park. Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.
The probably installed an overlay harness past the SKIM module it think the car it being hot wired it is a security feature. They need the install the interlock system prior to the SKIM module to keep it from locking up.
Some possible solutions that might help:
1. I'm not sure if this model comes with a Master Ignition key (which is usually a different colour fob or shape). If it does, then try starting the car with the Master key, it should override and reset the antitheft system and allow the car to start.
2. The Alarm keyfob (if it has one) battery may need replacing.
3. There may be an override key operated switch on the alarm itself or secreted away somewhere inside the car, which you can use to activate/deactivate the antitheft device?
4. You may have to key a code number onto a set of buttons on the dashboard to reset the Antitheft device?
5. Do you have the User Manual for the vehicle. There should be some explanation in there about what precautions to take when replacing the vehicle battery, and how to reset the anti theft device so that the engine can be started again
The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)
Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid
If you leave your battery out of your jeep for over 30-45 minutes it will start dumping codes from the computer. You will have to have it reprogrammed because of the security features in that vehicle. The best way to replace a battery is to jump it when it won't start, leave the vehicle running, and then hook up the new one.
My gas guage went from Empty to Full on its own and I never knew how much gas was in my vehicle. I was driving the other day and it stalled. Pulled into a parking lot let it sit a bit and it started right back up and I was able to drive again. Went to nearest gas station to put gas in. I put in $10 and I drove 3.4 miles and well it died on me again. I pushed the vehicle into my garage. I called around to see what could be wrong and I was told numerous things. I finally went under the vehicle where there is this clearish/white box under the Driverside area and I noticed it was corroded and dirty. I went in the house got a spray bottle with HOT WATER and sprayed it. I noticed that I had 3 prongs broke off. So I went to a local dealership for GM/Buick and I got the pins I needed to fix the problem and I went home fixed the broken pins and well now my vehicle works great and the vehicle runs great and gas guage problem was fixed as well. So for all of you that think you might have a fuel problem, fuel pump problem or gas guage problem check into the wire harness box under your vehicle and you will be able to fix it for Pennies instead of paying the $750 or more for something you cna fix at home. I love my Rendezvous and I would buy another one again.
