Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

Most cases the air bag light comes on when battery voltage gets low. I would have the battery checked. Then perform this step to clear the light. If the light does not clear, then you have a hard code and the code should be checked so the proper repairs can be done. 57c86bc.jpg

When I go to turn on my 2005 mini, not only will it not start, but the headlights start to blink, the lights on the dash begin to blink also, the lights inside begin to dim and get brighter sporadically, and the windows start slowly ticking down, even if I remove the key. However from time to time, the radio will play, and everything seems normal, but when I go to start the car, it dies and starts having spaz episodes all over again. Help?

I have a 95 Lesabre. I was doing errands, stopped car, came out of store and tried to start car. The engine didn't turn over. All lights on dash came on when I turned key on and all went off when I turned key off, except the security light. Even with key off it stayed on. I was trying to call someone for help, when the security light went out. I tried to start again and it turned right over. A friend told me I might need to replace ignition key. What do you think?
