2005. Why does it start and run for 2 seconds, then turn off?

sounds like you need tom relearn the security pass lock system. There are plenty of videos on you tube that will show you how to do this.

Essentially you will turn the key on, do not start, and leave it on until the security light stops flashing. then turn the key off and then it turn it back on, do not start. repeat for a total of three times then turn off and start the vehicle. Should take about 30 minutes. side note, it will not hurt to have a battery charger hooked up while you do this to make sure the battery does not go dead...

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

How do I get securicode panel for door opening to stop flashing? Never use this system always use key fob.

Try putting the key in the ignition and turn it to on,, wait for 10 seconds , turn it off, then count 30 seconds do this 10 and 30 for 3 times. With luck, this will reset your computer and your light will go off.

My brake lights are stuck on, and my fuel pump kicks off after 30 sec after starting the car, would the brake lights cause that problem

brake light switch not mounted anymore, you probably kick it not relizing what you did ! re-install switch to bracket @ pedal . NO , this has nothing to do with fuel pump ! check fuses, & fuel pump relay, it may have a fuse also ! ? when you turn key on, you should hear a hum for 2 seconds, thats your pump priming it self to start your engine. check all ground wires for good ground !!!!!!!

Hi ive just turned my ps3 on it stopped and went off now it wont play just got a red light when pushed it flashes green and blue the goes red when pushed again it flashes red help

Yes this is the YLOD the (Yellow light of death) it happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and you will need to fix this by stopping the heat build up, you can sned it in and they will fix it for you for $130.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good PS3 Repair guide in under an hour!

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

How can I get rid of the messages on my board....(ie. regular maintenance due)

1. Press and hold trip odometer reset button 2. Turn ignition key to run position KPII (not the start position)
3. Wait 30 seconds or until service light "!" begins blinking
4. Release Trip Odometer button
5. Turn ignition to off position
If that doesn't work try:
1. Press and hold trip odometer reset button
2. Turn ignition key to run position (not the start position)
3. Wait 30 seconds or until service light "!" begins blinking
4. Turn ignition to off position, the service light continues blinking
5. Release Trip Odometer button

should reset it for you

01 mazda millenia stops running no fuel

Need more info...........

Check the fuel pump. Do you hear it kick on for about 2 seconds when you turn the ignition key foward (but do not start engine)?

Remove fuel line from inlet to throttle body. Have someone turn key while holdinga rag over the hose end. If fuel comes out, it another problem- perhaps a loose wire, or a bad computer board (they go bad sometimes after car was in an accident).
