Your ignition has gone bad do you have alot of key chains on your keys if you do that will cause it you need to replace it it is very easy all you have to do is open the colum and pull out the old one and put the new one in
You may need a new ignition key cylinder or your key grooves may have worn down and no longer mesh with your ignition cylinder. Good luck. Mark

I have a 1998 Ford Contour. When I insert the key it will not turn. I have tried the standard stuff like wiggle the steering wheel, push in the brake and try to move the car from park, nothing! If I use the remote start, it will start, but when I insert the key it will not turn so the steering stays locked and it will not come out of park?

1998 Legacy Outback's alarm will not behave, I don't need it-never use it-how can I disable it? I never ingage the alarm but It still goes off on it's own,occasionally, when I try to start the car.

2002 Saturn sl2 power locks were fluttering, clicking, opening on their own when the car is started. I was reduced to opening the car using the keys. For few days car is parked and untouched, yesterday I found the car doors all open and car will not start. Did the power door relay (which one, the lock or the unlock relay? there are 2 different relays!) cause the car battery to get drained? How to check?

Hi...we just replaced the battery in my 99 Toyota 4runner Limited. Now when I use the remote key to unlock or lock the vehicle it no longer makes the beep horn sound. The remote itself still works to lock and unlock the vehicle. Could it be a fuse or something? Also note I have a aftermarket remote keyless start. It still works ...just not the beep. I guess it shouldn't be a big deal but the beep is nice whenever I park in a huge parking lot and can't quite remember where the car is and let's me


The aftermarket remote starter probably reset. Do you have the instruction manual for it? You should be able to run it through the initial 'start up' options and set the horn to beep for you. ... 1999 Toyota 4Runner

Car has been running fine. Parked and locked from the inside, not with remote. Few hours later unlocked with remote and car will not start, not even a click. Have checked all connections, wires, fuses everything. Chip in key is loose so we had the Buick dealership cut a new key. After that it started once only to shut down immediatey like the fuel just shut off. I feel this is a security system issue but do not know where to start to fix it.

My car won't start but I have power for lights, radio, etc. The alarm won't go off either from the remote start but I can use the fab to lock and unlock my doors and trunk. As you are sitting the in the car with the key in the start position for the radio to run the securtiy prompt above the speedometer continues to display. I tried using both original keys to see if the chip was bad but that had no impact. The DIC displays two prompts: check gages volt and service theft system. Would this be a

1995 ford t bird lx v8, a relay? "switch clicking" on and off sound from behind digital clock which also blinks. it happens when doors are opened by remote, when car ignition is started, stops after speeding up, comes back on when slowing down, and when remote door locks used, the sound and blinking lasts about 3-4 minutes. i dont know if this is relavent but this all started immediately after i loaded 4 big bags of topsoil into the trunk. also, it isnt the airbag sensor as it was dismantled yea


You have a ground wire loose somewhere in the car. This would explain both the clicking (the noise you hear is caused by electricity as it jumps from the loose wire to a nearby metal surface) and the blinking (bad grounding contact). You will need to ... Ford Thunderbird

This started two days ago after a hard rain and some rain got into the driver's side door which may not have been tig

Key stuck in ignition of 2005 Ford Focus. Tried jiggling steering wheel while turning key, tried moving from Park position. Car starts, but I have to use the extra key to lock car.

Sometimes when starting the car the key does absolutly nothing. Car is in park, steering locked with no preasure, foot is on brake. Key will not turn.

The key is old however using newer valet key has the same effect at times...nothing. Any clues as to what the problem might be?
