Hi Cindy, I'm glad to help! Here's something you can try, it works on most vehicles. While the alarm is sounding, turn the key in the drivers door several times and see if it stops. If it doesn't and you have a lock cylinder in the liftgate, turn the key several times in the liftgate lock and see if it stops. If it doesn't, try the key in the passenger lock cylinder if it has one. If this doesn't work try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 20 seconds then reconnect it. If the alarm is still sounding then try the doors again, if it still doesn't stop then you'll need to take it to the repair shop. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Cindy!
You may need to reprogram the remotes. 1. Turn ignition to run position (as far as you can go without starting engine). 2. Using any Working remote, press the UNLOCK button for 4 to 10 seconds. 3. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK buton and press the PANIC button for 1 second and release both buttons at the same time. A chime will sound within 3 seconds to indicate that the vehicle has entered remote programming mode. 4. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press any button on all remotes to be programmed including previously programmed remotes. A chime will sound after each remote is programmed. 5. Turn ignition to OFF and remove key. 6. Test all remotes.
If it stopped in a second, the cause is electrical problem. If it stopped more gradually, over several seconds, it is usually fuel related. If you put the key in the ignition and turn it to run, not start, are there lights on the dashboard panel? If you turn the key to the start position, does the engine rotate? Sometimes I have to turn the key to start position several times before it works and the engine rotates.
My 2006 PT Cruiser has the same problem! When hot in the cab it won't start but after it is cool outside it starts up without missing a lick! When it is hot and you turn the key you get nothing but do have power to lights, radio, etc. weirdest thing ever and nobody knows why! We have had the ignition module replaced and have a new battery. This one has stumped everyone. Any suggestions folks?
yes it sounds like the starter is bad,you have to keep on turning the key and you hear a click everytime you turn the key,replace the starter that should solve that problem,also make sure your battery connections are tight and clean.
Two things to try, If you have a second origional key try that first. If the problem still persists, you will need to take the vehicle to a reputable garage to have the problem diagnosed. You could have a bad key and the theft deterent system is causing the problem or it could be a bad ignition switch or start relay.
