Hi vflood, This is usually due to a heat issue, possibly from accumulated dust inside the machine. Take the side off and, using canned air available in most electronics departments, blow the dust off of the cpu, heatsink, and fans as well as the ventilation areas. Then blow the rest of the dust out as well.

Also, if you have altered your operating system power settings recently, you may want to revert them to default.

Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate/vote!

Self clean lock


Hello there:
Normally every body gets this almost right by cutting the power but there is a trick to this it can be done in 2 different ways depending on the unit
First unplug the unit and wait 15 -30 seconds then plug it back in and wait for 15 to 30 seconds then unplug it again and repeat this step 1 more time then upon the final plug in wait for 5 min and then unlock as you normally would.
now on the newer units the trick is to let it stand unplugged for 1 hour to allow the internal reset device to reset the appliance then plug it back in and then wait 5 min and you should hear it automatically unlock the appliance or you cn simply unlock it as you normally would
BUT REMEMBER DO NOT TOUCH IT FOR THE 5 MINUTES AFTER THE PLUG IN STAGE OR YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN OK
Hope this is very helpful for you please keep me posted on how this is going there is still more that i can show you but i wanted to start with the basics ok?
Best regards Michael

When i try to start the car it wont turnover an it keeps blinking security on the dashboard


Your key has a computer chip in it that tells the computer that the person who owns the car is trying to start it. Sometimes the key will lose its memory and the car computer thinks your a thief with the wrong key. You may have to have a new key made from a code the dealer can aquire from the VIN number I believe.

Trying to reset theft system


Can try doing a  relearn process, it is pretty simple and will take 30 minutes, if it'll work for you at all since your problem doesn't sound like a computer issue.
30-Minute Learn Procedure
1. Turn on the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK.

Important:
Turn the Ignition Switch OFF.
The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on
the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition
OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code
and/or password.
7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100
ignition cycles.
Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

Good luck and hope this help's. keep me posted if you need other ways to disable the passive lock system

My self cleaning oven door will not open, and keeps beeping and


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.
