No , it's not the park neutral switch , The park neutarl switch won't allow the vehicle to start if not in park or neutal , has nothing to do with turning off the vehicle . Problem with the shift lock contro system probably !
Park Lock Control System (Regal)
The park lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the ignition is OFF. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid
• The brake to shift relay
• The body control module (BCM)
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
With the ignition in the OFF position the park lock control solenoid is de-energized. This mechanically locks the shift lever in the PARK position. With the ignition in the ON position, battery voltage is supply to the park lock control solenoid. The control circuit of the park lock solenoid is provided a ground through the brake to shift relay when energized. The body control module (BCM) supplies a ground for the brake to shift relay when the body control module (BCM) receives a class 2 message from the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the transmission is in the PARK position. This closes the normally open contacts of the brake to shift relay and grounds the park lock control solenoid. This energizes the park lock control solenoid releasing the mechanical park lock.

Sorry , but your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

1998 chevy cavalier starts and runs great but when you put it in gear the warning lights come on in the dash and it dings like the door is open, and it stays like that till you shut the car off.


Try this,it wont cost anything but time.Remove the ignition switch(not the key lock) But leave it plugged in. Place the key lock in the run position. Using a screw driver turn the ignition switch and start the car. Does it still ding? It Should... If yes, push in the little white stem on the key lock with your finger.(on the tip BETWEEN where it was connected to the wired ignition switch) Does it stop? If yes, either the little stem has worn down or a dent has worn into the plastic electrical ignition switch. You will have to decide which is not right. But that is the part that sets off the "Key Left In Car" ding.

Why won't my My 98 or 99 (sic)Ford Escort chime to indicate I left my lights on?


The warning chime sounds if the parking lamps (13200) or the headlamps (13008) are left on after the key has been removed from the ignition switch lock cylinder and either front door (20124) is opened. There is a chime module that controls this .
The safety belt warning chime (10D840) (also called the central processing unit or CPU) is an audible warning system and timing circuit. The system components include:
  • Timing circuit safety belt switch.
  • Dome lamp switches.
  • Safety belt warning indicator switch which is an integral part of the front safety belt buckle end (61203).
  • Ignition switch (11572).
  • Headlamp switch.
The warning chime sounds and the safety belt warning indicator illuminates when the ignition switch is placed in the ON position and the LH front safety belt is not buckled.
Key In Ignition Warning
The warning sounds if the key is left in the ignition switch lock cylinder when either door is opened and the ignition switch is in the LOCK or OFF position.
Don't any of chimes work ?
  • The Headlamp on Reminder Chime Is Inoperative/Does Not Operate Properly
  • Circuits.
  • Fuse junction panel.
  • Warning chime module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .
Let me know ,mite work this out !
Don't

Lexus sc 400 anti thieif could this be why my car don't start


Yes, car will not start or will start and run for about 20 seconds and shut off if the anti theft system is active. The theft system will either disable the starter circuit, cut the fuel injector circuit or both. Sometimes you can lock the doors with either the key fob or electric door locks, then open manually with a key and then lock with key fob, wait 30 seconds and unlock with key fob or key. Occasionally that will reset the system, or turn on ignition 3 times for 10 seconds each without starting the car, (turn key to where dash warning lights illuminate, but not to the start position), wait 30 seconds then start the car, for the ECM to relearn the key code. If that doesn't work, most likely will have to be reset at a dealership. Good luck!

2001 lexus ls430. Dead battery at airport. jumoers turned over starter fine but car would not start and no dashboard lights, fan, radio but driver and front passenger windows and doorlocks worked but not...


Sounds as though when your battery died the engine imobiIiser locked down.
YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED TO A LEXUS DEALER AND HAVE THE MASTER KEY AND OTHERS REPROGRAMMED TO THE IGNITION...BUT
If you have your wallet key as well , try taking all to the airport. HOLD the card to the dash beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds, then try turning the key several times. I haven`t done an LS but the failsafe when a remote fails is to hold the key beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds ....
Also try the lock routine, but I think the issue is in dash..security needing to reboot to your key.
My understanding is that the lock routine re initialises the lock setstings when power is restored

  • Wait until learn mode times out (20 seconds) or switch the ignition back to ON.nfrared Programming Instructions:
  • Put your key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (Radio). After approximately 10 seconds the red alarm control LED (next to the clock) should illuminate. As soon as it comes on remove the key from the ignition - the LED should remain lit.
