    is this anything to do with the pass-key system or the theft-deterrent system that is factory installed. How do I dis-arm this feature?

Vehicle won't start when hot

A common problem that's surfaced a great deal lately is a car/truck that starts fine when the engine is cold but won't when the engine is warm. Most of the time, the car will require a jump start with a warm engine to get it to start. Most mistakenly assume a bad battery and change it out, only to have the same problem. What happens is most starters don't just "quit" when they are defective. A bad starter will usually start your vehicle when it's absolutely cold. Once warm, the starter will behave as follows:<br /> <ul> <li>No power</li> <li>Click then nothing</li> <li>All other electrical is fine (headlights, stereo, alarm etc)</li></ul> If your car or truck won't start when the engine is warm, but starts fine when it's cold, you most likely have a bad starter. Although replacing the battery is less expensive, it rarely (if ever) will resolve this issue. Consider the age of the car / starter when these symptoms occur. If you have an older vehicle (older than 5 years) then replacing the starter is a good place to start prior to buying other electrical components (battery, alternator). <br /> <br /> Always bring the vehicle to a shop that offers a free electrical diagnostic test to confirm the electrical system is sound to rule out an electrical problem first. If the electrical system is sound, I'd go ahead and replace the starter. <br />Although this tip will show under the Lincoln category, it applies to all makes and models.<br />

I have a mazda millenia 01. I put a different cd player in my car. Cd playee would not play and engine light is on now. When i first start my car the gages go up, then back down.. lights on inside...

You apparently have a vehicle with the Anti-theft system on the Audio system. I would put the original player back in to avoid future problems! The vehicle will behave erratically while the replacement unit is installed!

Change starter wire on 92 eldorado

A starter motor problem won't cause the car to stop, You need to make sure that the earth leads from the battery to the body and to the motor are tight and that the surface they bolt to is clean, there could also be an issue with the electrical switch on the back of your ignition.

Have a 1996 Toyota Camery. Installed a KDG140 JVC stereo/CD player but the stereo won't work. CD player works great.

If "stereo won't work" refers to you not being able to get radio stations; try your antenna connection behind the radio. The vehicle may also have a power antenna connection(blue wire at the stereo).

I have a jvc radio cd player the unit will not come on when ignition turned on. it just says hello goodby

This the typical behavior of any car radio/cd/dvdplayers. when the engine is cranked, itresponds by momentary supply of current and divert it the starter motor. it has to 'cos cranking any engine/started, it automatically stops any gadget which happens to be ON. have you evert tried to start the engine with the Head Lights already on?

This is perfectly normal for any vehicle with electric motor as the starter(self start).

hope that i've manged to explain why & its the defalt setting in all vehicles
