Dealer only to re programme key into car it can only be done with vehicle, not away from it .Sorry for no easy fix unless you want to disengage the factory immobiliser,which if its a diesel is a fairly simple procedure but not for a petrol engine

Check gages light turns on and doesn't go off. Already had the oil changed, the oil pressure needle keeps marking 0. It had the same problem once but I changed the oil and kept working fine; then about 2 months after that oil change the oil pressure needle started to drop again, so I changed the oil once again, kept working ok, and since that oil change it only has been less than a month, and the oil pressure needle dropped to 0, and the check gages light is on


At this point I would strongly suggest that you have your mechanic hook a mechanical oil pressure guage to the engine and make absolutlely sure that the pressure is up to manufacturers standards. It may simply be a failing oil pressure sending unit, ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hello from Brazil. I have a 2003 Focus, Zetec 1,8 engine. My battery light is on since all instruments on cluster changed position of pointers, covering all the scales. It happened 4 or 5 times in a row. No change on engine functioning was noted, AC was on and is running OK. There is start power now, everything is OK, except for the battery light still on.

Car wont start. when turn key to start position there is nothing but a click sound under dash on passenger side. there is lots of power from battery. this has been doing it since nov.2010 and after clicking it a few time then it would start. But now it wont just clicks. I have had the anti thelft relay module changed and a couple other switches changed and still doing same thing. could it be a dead spot in starter or a short in starter burning out switches to ignition??? Please help!!!!


U could try the old school technique.....have someone turn the ignition key, as you get under the car and tap /hit the starter with a hammer, or a block of wood....if it all of a sudden works ..then yeah..you must have a flat spot on your starter..gi ... 1998 Oldsmobile 88

2008 vw R32 strong vibration at on cold start ( but not everyday) and sometimes the car will not start. I come back later and it starts normally with no vibrations. Took it to the dealers twice (since its under warranty) the first time they changed the battery but didn't solve the problem) and the second time they did a detailed check and says nothing is wrong with the car ( since it didn't vibrate or anything in front of them). I don't know what to do. A friend suggested it could be a senso

No start on a 2005 jeep grand cherokee It is a random problem. I read that the ignition switch was the problem and changed it two wkd ago, since then the problem M has shown 3 times. Click but no start. Have read that the starter is not the issue... What else? FCM? Not the battery for sure. Tonite, I pulled the positive cable from battery ( reset the module) but no success , then unplugged the negAtive one alone and it worked....

OK so I am fixing my 2004 mercury mountaineer after my bro had left it in new Mexico sitting for about a year. After changing battery, fuel filter, oil and air filter, I started it and everything was fine. When I started to drive it around the service engine light came on. I had it checked at auto zone and it pulled the code P0193. I know it has something to do with fuel but where do I start. Also since this light came on my MPG has dropped to low 9's on the gauge. I still drive it around to

Changing oil We have let our 1998 Four Winds 5000 motor home sit for 5 months without driving. We have,however, started it every 3 weeks to charge the battery. Before parking we had only driven about 700 miles since the last oil change. Is it necessary to change the oil again before hitting the road? Thanks, Keith


In all probability, oil is fine. However once used and stored it does tend to build up some acidity. For the price of an oil change, I'd hate to see you loose the engine! I have never seen an engine fail from too many oil changes!!! ... Chevrolet 3500

Still having a problem getting car started. It has been intermittent. When I try to start car it just makes a clicking noise. I have tried different batteries and changed out starter,but problem still persists. It is broke down about 2mi. from my house so I am desperately seeking good advice. Also I can't jump start the car,so that is why it isn't at the house yet. So I have to cancel any advice about getting a volt meter or other services done on the car since it isn't near a auto repair shop.

My interrior lights, radio, and power side view mirrors suddenly don't work on my 1999 Dodge Neon?! --My car wouldnt start about a week ago so I replaced the battery & starter to find that it still wasn't starting. So I took it to a garage thinking it was an electrical issue. Well, they sent me home with a new starter and it's been starting fine now (knock on wood). But every since they've changed it my power side view mirrors, interior lights, and radio wont work when they were before. HELP?!


I think you can fix this yourself, I just need you to get out the book everyone fears (the owners manual).I want you to go to a section in the book called fuses and relays. Now, in the book, they will have a diagram of the fuse panel with numbers on ... 1999 Dodge Neon

My 1997 chevy truck isnt starting,....new battery, starter is good as well as alternater. I have been told to change my filters, I never have changed a fuel filter, but would like to install this $10.00 item rather than pay an expert since money is tight

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited wont start. I turned the ignition over but didn't let it go to full position and immediately turned it over again. I don't know what that triggered but it will just click like it's trying to relay everything but wont turn over. Before this happened, it started just fine.

I have a 2006 model golf 1.6l, and recently when i turn on my car the rear wiper turns on for a few seconds and then turns off on its own although the switch for the rear wiper is in the off position. also, the driver windows wont work for the first 3 or 4 seconds after i start the car. note that the battery has never been changed since i got it in 2006. can a bad battery cause such problems?? thank you in advance for any help

My car stop on me 2 weeks ago. It made a loud squeeking sound before it cut off on me. I changed spark plugs wire, belt, battery, & starter. It turned over for about 5 seconds and cut off, it hasn't turned over since. Now when trying to start it, it makes a charge like sound, like it wants to start but it doesn't. What could be the possible problem?

Took our tahoe in for oil change they also put in fuel injector cleaner since the we have had a hard idle problem that happens between 0 to 5 miles an hour then occasional it dies after you first start it. what do you thin is wrong we change the spark plugs to bosch plugs and new wires and a new fuel filter but it still did the same thing. We had it read at and it is still saying 8 is the problem so we put in a new silinode what do you think?

1996 buick lasabre won't start in cold weather the battery is new--it cranks great--this happened once before late last year when it got realy cold. When it got into the 20's I was able to start the car. I put Heat into the gas tand and then filled it up. Working fine since then, until yesterday when the temp plunged. Put another container of Heat into the tank and tried again today--no change. Please advise


Buy a more expensive battery and check the fuel injectors to make sure they are not clogged from the heat that you pured into the tank. i do not recommend putting heat in a gas tank of any vehicle ... 1997 Buick LeSabre
