Disconnect the battery. Short the positive and negative cables together for a half hour. Reconnect to battery, simple and worth a try.

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

Changed front turn signal on '03 Buick Century with car running. Car died and will not start. All lights on dash operate, headlights and radio operate. Cannot find a fuse that is blown.


Did you short something out ? Do you have a SECURITY light lit on the insturment cluster ? anti-theft system problem . Will not start how ? does the engine do anything when you turn the key to the start position ? A - crank no start or no crank - no start ? If the engine cranks an doesn't start , is there spark at plug wires ? Is there fuel ? An anti - theft problem will let the vehicle engine crank but not start an run , disables fuel injectors .

Why wont my alarm reset in my 1998 chevy blazer the security system is killing the fuel and i cant get it to run it starts and dies imeaditly


I don't think the anti-theft is the problem.
On GM vehicles, the anti-theft system will not allow the engine to crank, or get fuel or spark. If it cranks, you have a different problem.

I changed the starter with new as old one was not turning. After replacing new starter my truck does not crank and start, Please help me to start my Truck. Anti theft light is blinking all the time.


You solved your own problem.
The anti-theft system is probably keeping it from starting.
Get the system checked out and you may find the problem is the chip in the key.

Vehicle will not start! Replaced the battery but it will still not turn over. Oil light, battery and engine light come on when initially trying to start.


Is the security light on or flashing when trying to start the vehicle .
Anti-Theft The passive anti-theft system (PATS) consists of the following components:
  • Anti-theft indicator
  • Encoded ignition key(s) (the key contains a transponder)
  • PATS transceiver
  • Powertrain control module (PCM)
PATS will disable the vehicle from starting if there is:
  • a damaged PATS key.
  • an unprogrammed PATS key.
  • a non-encoded key (a conventional key or one that does not have any electronics).
  • damaged wiring.
  • a damaged transceiver.
  • a damaged PCM.
If it is a anti-theft system you will have to take it to the dealer .This system will keep the starter from spinning the engine .

This problem you are having sounds like a crankshaft sensor going bad. Do you have a check engine light on, in your dash? Have your computer scanned, and cars computer will tell you what the problem is. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

2000 ford explorer xlt 4.0 cranks will not start took to garage changed battery cables and cleaned charging system 2 days later cranks will not start but can hear fuel pump running when I turn key the...


You should hear the fuel pump run momentarily when the key is in the Run position. Ensure the engine has a good spark by removing one of spark plug boots. Stick a phillips screwdriver in the boot, and hold the handle of the screwdriver, and allow the shaft near ground. (motor works best) Have someone crank the engine and look for a good blue spark arch from the screwdriver and engine. If your getting good spark, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel injection rail.

Engine no start


Do you have another key for the car? Try that. If not you'll have to have the keys programmed to the car at the dealer.
