Customer Question
2003 GT. Theft...

2003 GT. Theft icon is on. The dash came out of another one I have. The key to the one with the icon on is not the original key. Doesn't work in the doors/trunk. Any way to fix? Not going to flatbed it 40 miles to a dealer. I do want to get everything keyed the same with remote.

Mechanic's Assistant: What exactly is happening to the trunk?

Nothing with the trunk, car won't start because anti theft is on.

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

It ran before the dash was replaced. Read the original.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** until the computer recognizes the key, the vehicle will not start and if the dash was replaced, you will need to have the key that fits the ignition reprogrammed into the computer, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come to the vehicle and program them, they are cheaper and it saves a tow bill to the dealer, our locl locksmith charges 70 dollars to come out and program them, the dealer geat over 200 dollars, but until the keys are reprogrammed, it will not start,Tim

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
