The key under the dash may be bypassing the security system. And that trick may not be working anymore.
You would need to check the starter to see if you have power from the key switch in the start position. The neutral safety switch may have failed, or the security system may be preventing the engine from cranking.

Testimonial: "OK, I believe someone before tried to bypass the security system because there were 2 wires soldered to the chip in the key. A friend took those wires loose (he didnt know what he was doing). If I solder those back onto the key do I solder one wire on both sides of the key or one on each side?????"

SOURCE: 99 olds aurora pass key problem

There is most likely a problem with the tiny sensor in the ignition lock cylinder, it is not reading the key chip and locks u out, the problem is u can't just replace the lock cylinder u need a dealer only re-programm of the pass key system since the control module will not recognize the new lock code, catch 22 if u ask me. Do u have more than one key for the car? do both do this?

try another key. if this doesnt work the wire in the tumbler assembly most likely broke and you will need it replaced. ( Ignition Switch)

Measure for the ignition voltage at the fuse panel. If you get this voltage right away, and the lights "pop on" later, then most likely a relay in the fuse panel. If the voltage appears at the same time as the lights, then it looks more like the ignition switch itself.

You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

You most likely blew a relay. It's just like blowin a fuse only a bit bigger. It sounds like maybe your secondary ignition. Your relay box should be on the drivers side, either right on top(when u open the hood) or mounted to either the firewall or the fender

When i start my ford escape the radio goes on for about 2 minutes and then shuts off. Then it doesnt work until i shut the car off and leave the key in the ignition. cant figure out what is wrong with it


Check your radio relay. If it has bad contacts, it will cause the radio to shut down; when you turn the key off, it recycles the relay. Your relay may need to be replaced. You could try swapping it out with another relay from the box to give it a quick test. Just make sure you don't disable anything that wouls make your vehicle unsafe.

It could be corrosion on the battery terminals. Otherwise, you sometimes can't get a car with a dead cell in the batty to jump start at all. I would call the seller and politely ask their advice.
Treat them with respect, and they will probably be very helpful. Don't start accusing them of things. That just never ever helps.
