    I believe all you have to do in that situation is close all doors and lock all doors with remote for a few seconds and unlock them then try starting it and that should do it. Hope that gets you going :o) Jesus loves you, John 3:16-17 (KJV)

Probably not unless you remove the battery
what you say indicates a bad battery , dirty/loose terminals or bad ground

Testimonial: "The battery is fine. Its something to do with alarm system. Only have one key. I was told probably have to reset key code but cant afford to. Trying to figure it out."

    try this --if it won't click but all the lights ore on , it is very possible that the gear selector is not in the park position for those safety switches to work and allow power to the start relay
    could be the switches themselves or wires to the switches
    what about a fuse to the start relay

SOURCE: 2001 pontiac sunfire wont start

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

SOURCE: problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser

You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

SOURCE: 01 tiburon, alarm reset? wont start

I had the same problem because I store my car in the garage in the winter. I found that replacing the positive/negative cables with new ones and also if you still have your spare key, try putting one key in the ignition and turn to acc before turning it over click your alarm button on your spare set of keys and the alarm should reset itself and the car should start. i hope this helps you, i just finished changing my spark plug wires because I had a code P302 which made my 2nd cylinder misfire, so if your tiburon is around 180,000 km then you should change it too, I recommend Bosch they are the best.
take care

SOURCE: airbag dash light flashing code 51

Common fault on FORD

Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

SOURCE: 02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key

if you recently replaced the battery and are continuing to have this issue, i suggest that you clean the battery terminals.

obviously your car is getting power (fast clicking indicates this) so you will need a good battery jump. also check your cables, sometimes your cables may not supply sufficient power for the recharge

Anti thief light not blinking. Car wont start. key fob red light will flash but car wont turn on

If it doesn't start with the key either. Remove the aftermarket alarm/remote start system. Some thing you might check first is the neutral safety switch. On the transmission close to the shifter cable. Any way. after market alarms don't last that long. Even the best on the market seem to only last about 6 to 7 years. Cheap ones are lucky to last up to 2 years. Once the start going out, they can cause all sorts of different problem.

I would love to answer this question but I am having the same issue. I have a 2000 LS with the V8..replaced the battery about 2 weeks ago and last night I went to go home and it won't start. All the bells ring when I turn the key but when I turn to the right to "start" position, nothing. No clicking, no noise at all. I called the Lincoln dealership and we went over the alarm light "not flashing" and shifter position. They have no advice other than "tow it in".
The vehicle had been running fine.
