DSMtuner :

hey there

DSMtuner :

Can you tell me what exactly what happens when you attempt to start the engine?

DSMtuner :

when you say you can only start with the "emergency key" are you referring to the mechanical key inside the FOB?

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

yes

DSMtuner :

HEY THERE

DSMtuner :

So you have the push button start

DSMtuner :

with the key cylinder on the steering cloumn option then

DSMtuner :

not the fob slot

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

no I have to push button and turn switch or knob into which the emergency key fits

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

I hahe

DSMtuner :

Ok, thanks I know what set-up you have.


 

DSMtuner :

When you go to use the push button what does the display say?

DSMtuner :

press brake?

DSMtuner :

or insert key?

DSMtuner :

or what

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

I have to release the switch by pushing brake pedal and pushing button on knob orswitch which is one of same whitch ever you call it

DSMtuner :

YES, EXACTLY


 

DSMtuner :

but my concern was, when you pressed the brake


 

DSMtuner :

did it say "press brake still"

DSMtuner :

like it didn't detect the brake being pressed.

DSMtuner :

or did it show the key symbol like it didn't detect the key?

DSMtuner :

it would say in the center of the dash cluster

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

yesI it now shows a red key have always had to pushthe brake to release the switch as wellas press the button

DSMtuner :

Yes, i know this you just mis-understood me


 

DSMtuner :

what i was saying is that if the red key light stays on then it doesn't detect the key


 

DSMtuner :

whic you probably already know since you changed the batteries to see if that helps

DSMtuner :

same thing happens with a bad brake switch

DSMtuner :

if the brake lamps do not light up

DSMtuner :

because of a bad brake switch, then the car does not know your pushing the brakes

DSMtuner :

and the push button start won't work

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

but sure ly it should detect the signal from the key

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

and not show `the red signal key

DSMtuner :

it wouldn't matter if it detected the key or not for the bush button


 


if the brakes didnt work


 


it still would not allow you to start it, if the brakes were out


 

DSMtuner :

so the red signal key "stays on"


 

DSMtuner :

does not blink

DSMtuner :

but stays on

JACUSTOMER-5d9v0igb- :

but the car does start and run using the emergency key

DSMtuner :

correct, which means the FOB is nto read from the antennae via RFID signal

DSMtuner :

but the key registration is still read from the mechanical key

DSMtuner :

you still didn't answer me though

DSMtuner :

does the red key light STAY ON

DSMtuner :

not blink

DSMtuner :

but STAY ON SOLID when you try to start it
