Flashing red dot on my dash for 2002 caravan and wont start


It sounds like the car is not recognizing the key. That red light is the anti-theft indicator. Sometimes due to batteries dying in the key fob or car itself this can happen. The car and key essentially loose track of each other. It can also be a problem with the vehicles control module. This is a situation where you are pretty much stuck with taking it to a Dodge dealership where they can hook it to a scan tool or reprogram a key, depending on what the exact issue is.

The warning lamp for the electronic immobiliser flashes continuously for the audi and it cant start. This started after we struggled to get the new battery in


Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Key fob would not open 1995 discovery ,used key in door then alarm went off ,after a few seconds alarm ceased then put key in to start engine and got nothing now cant lock doors with key but red light is...


The red light means the Immobiliser has not been turned off, the deactivator in the key must not be working correctly, visit your local land rover dealer who will be able to make sure the key is paired to the car correctly, otherwise you may need a new key.

The immoboliser light flashes when the key is turned?


this is how the immobiliser system works........you have a remote,it has 2 codes,one is fixed,one is random,the random code changes every time you lock the car,and this is the code the car reccognises to open/start the car.the fixed code is for simple key reccognition.the key has a magnet inbuilt that has a fixed code that matches the remotes fixed code.if you use a wrong key,the car will start,then die.the flashing light on the dash is a warning that the key code is weak and COULD cause a malfunction.use your spare keys and if the light still flashes you may need to have the keys recoded.(NO. YOU CANT DO THEM YOURSELF as the VW computer diagnostic computer has to match then reccognise the key to the car.) thats why when reseting the keys/car after a battery is changed you must go through the set/reset as shown in the handbook(that nobody seems to own).

Cant start. the power to the dash stays on even


Sounds like a bad starter switch at the column there. May need to replace that.

No keys


If you want to initiate a new master key.... 1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen minutes.
2. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder OFF and then back to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
3. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back ON (RUN) position. The dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
4. After the security light stops flashing the third time, the new key has been programmed into the vehicles computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the vehicles computer.

The dealership should be able to do this for you without a current key, of course this means towing the vehicle to them. See if they will sell you a key and you program it yourself.

hope this helps. I found the above info at FordF150.net

Vw jetta wont let me start it


It's an ignition problem. If you keep trying to turn over it will start. It's an anti theft device they installed. The little car with the flashing key. Someone likely tampered with your ignition before for this to happen.
