The keys have security codes in them. If the key does not match the one the vehicle is looking for it won't start. You need to take the key and vehicle to a dealer to be reprogramed. Or if you just bought a key and have the old one, take the two keys to a dealer so the old key code can be copied to the new one.

I have a problem with the electric lock security system. Under normal conditions if I press the unlock on the key remote, the lights will flash once and the doors unlock. When I press the lock button


if this is a factory lock security system you can contact dealer for instruction sheet to re-program your remote or have them do that for you if vehicle is under warranty. if not you can go online and find the procedure for your make,model and year of vehicle. sounds like the remote's battery is need of replacing or the remote needs to be re-programmed

Why is brake and ABS light on in town & country 2008


Highly likely that your vehicle may not stop next time you press on the brake pedal. Either the master cylinder is failing, the ABS module is failing, your brake servo is failing, or you have lost a significant amount of brake fluid due to a leak. IT IS URGENT THAT YOU GET THE VEHICLE TO A REPAIR SHOP IMMEDIATELY TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT. IT IS DANGEROUS TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE IT WHEN THOSE LIGHTS ARE ILLUMINATED SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Have you you tried just re-programming all of your remotes? I just added a "new" (from Ebay) remote and when re-programming, had to do them all. Here's how... 1. Using a functional key fob transmitter, unlock the vehicle and disarm the Vehicle Theft Security System. 2. Insert ignition key into the ignition switch. 3. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position without starting engine. 4. Using a functional key fob transmitter, press and hold the UNLOCK button for a minimum four seconds (maximum ten seconds) 5. While holding UNLOCK button, and before ten seconds passes, press and release the PANIC button. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module is set to receive the new Vehicle Access Code(s) 6. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons on the transmitter at the same time. Then press any one of the buttons. The BCM will sound an abbreviated chime to acknowledge that the programming of the transmitter has been completed and was successful. 7. Repeat step 6 for all transmitters that will be used with this vehicle (up to 4 total) 8. Programming mode will last for 30 seconds. To get out of programming mode sooner, turn the ignition OFF. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module will no longer accept additional Vehicle Access Code(s) 9. When Vehicle Access Code(s) programming is complete, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and verify RKE system operation using each key fob

My car alarm will not reset and the issue with problems below


If you (hopefully) have the key fob (keyless entry remote), try closing the doors, then lock and unlock using the keyless entry. This should reset the security so the vehicle will start.
