What does the car do when you try to start it?
the intelligent key warning light comes on along with the steering wheel alarm light. have checked both the steering column and have trid another intelligent key and nothing happens
The dash will not come on?
when you hit the start button?
Meaning the Dash warning lights?
it usually says to push brake and then push start button, but this does not come up
Now tell me this, when your stepping on the brake pedal, are the brake lights coming on?
after pushing the start button, these alarms come ondon't know. I'm at home now and the car is at a friends house
don't know. I'm at home now and the car is at a friends house
It's a good chance the brake switch is bad
This is common on the push button start cars for some reason.
it doesn't seam to detect the key fob?
The Brake pedal has to be pressed so the car will start. If the switch for the brake lights is bad, the computer can't tell your stepping on the brakes to start the car.
Also, I would check your battery also. Maybe put a jump to it and see if that will help show more signs of life.
why doesn't it say to depress the brakes and push start button to begin with?
That is the starting sequence when it detects the key.
For the people who just can't remember how to start a push button start car.
yes, thats why I think it is not detecting the key, because it is not telling me to depress the brakes and push start
Does the key lock and unlock the doors?
remote wise I mean
yes. with remote and with the key
panic button works, tried that, tried leaving the key in the holder for 10-15 minutes before starting and no luck
Then like I said, you need to check to see if the brake lights work when you step on the brake
If they don't, then try to jump start the car and see if that bring it to life.
If the remote works, the inside antenna will see the key. It's not the key that is the problem
Never the key if the remote works
guess thats what I'll have to try
You can always go try and return to this question at your friends house on his computer if you need more assistance with this.
But from what your describing, it's normally the battery, or the brake switch.
