The red security light on the dash won't blink, the door chimes when I open it and the key is out and lights are off and my key faub won't work and has new battery.

I cannot find C240 on your list of models so I have chosen a C230 from that list. It is a 1998 model. One of my 2 keys does not get used very often and for the last 12 months or so the red light on that key was flashing but the key has only worked after twisting it a number of times in the ignition for it to activate. Sometimes the car could be locked and unlocked. Thinking it probably was the batteries, I replaced them with 2 new CR2025. The red light flashes when any of the 3 butto

I have a chrysler 300 touring, 3.5L. There are two keys and a remote start. I cannot start the car with the second (spare) key. I can actually start but it automatically shuts down and it wont even start second time onwards. There is also a red light blinking when I put the spare key in the ignition,, this light does not blink with the first key. I actually found out that it is the electronic system in the key case that is doing this (I have tried to swap the cases). Is there any programming in


Since the second key does not have the electronics in the case, it will not allow the car to run, as it thinks its being stolen. If you give your local chrysler dealer your VIN number, they should be able to produce a second key that will start the c ... 2005 Chrysler 300

I was prevented from starting my 2008 Ford Escape with one of my keys but it starts just fine with my other key that no longer has a charged battery in it. Any idea why this is happening. Can I reset the key that has a battery charge to work or does something have to be reset in the car's electronics system? When I try to start the vehicle with the key that has a charge still, I get a red lock icon light up in the bottom left corner of dash window. Thanks for any light that you can shed on this

Battery completely died after car sat for over a month. Hooked it up to a battery charger for a few hours. Went to put key in, alarm goes all crazy, lights flashing, horn honking, etc... Remove key, all continues. Only way to stop is to insert key to "On" and press brake. End up fighting it for a while before it finally stops. Car will not start, nor disengage from Park. Red button located next to steering wheel blinks during this. Tried the insert key to "On", press/hold red button 3-9 seconds,

I have a warning light on my 2008 pack 5 PRIUS. It is a red light with a key symbol. This is not the yellow one that comes on when you leave your key in the car. Everything seems fine except for this light. It seems to flash when unlocked and stay one when locked like the theft deterrent LED used to. There is no mention anywhere of this symbol in the manual HELP!

If I turned the ignition key to start but the car does not start immediately, a red light with key symbol will begin to flash continuously and the car will not start again until the light goes off. This is particularly the case where the car turns off while in traffic; to start again, you have to wait until the flashing light goes off. This is disturbing

Chrysler 300 My car not long ago would shake and the engine light would come on. I had a tune up and it seemed to stop. After looking at this website, it looks like it was the 02 sensor. This morning, I tried to crank it up and it turned over but never engaged. I tried again. A small circular red light (that is not identified in the manual) on the instrument panal came on and it will do nothing. The red light comes on each time I tried. Also, the remote key will not work. Which is odd. Is the re
