Customer Question
I broke my ignition...

I broke my ignition key went to junk yard got a new key and switch the van cranked and did fine until I pressed the button on the key while it was in the ignition running .once I pressed the button it just went dead and hasn't cranked since .the red security dot is staying on .I found my other factory key but it will not start with it either .I'm sure the security has kicked in on the van what can I do to fix this problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have a backup key? Maybe the emergency kind that fits in your wallet?

I I have the other factory chip key with the separate fob remote my fob was not made on the factory keys but the one I got from the junk yard was so when I craneed it I pressed one of those buttons on that key and it shut it down .I have since found my other factory key and remote

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2001 plymouth voyager

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Voyager yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ok how do I get that done
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
that is why my security light is staying on and the van not turning over
Chrysler Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 7 months ago

yes, the red light means the computer does not recognize the key, the dealer can program these, but we use mobile locksmiths to come out and program them on site, this save a tow bill to the dealer, and they are cheaper too, our local locksmith charges 70 dollars t come and program them, the dealer gets over 200 to do this, and you have to tow it to them,Tim

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
