Can you tell me what exactly what happens when you attempt to start the engine?
when you say you can only start with the "emergency key" are you referring to the mechanical key inside the FOB?
So you have the push button start
with the key cylinder on the steering cloumn option then
not the fob slot
no I have to push button and turn switch or knob into which the emergency key fits
Ok, thanks I know what set-up you have.
When you go to use the push button what does the display say?
or insert key?
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
but my concern was, when you pressed the brake
did it say "press brake still"
like it didn't detect the brake being pressed.
or did it show the key symbol like it didn't detect the key?
it would say in the center of the dash cluster
yesI it now shows a red key have always had to pushthe brake to release the switch as wellas press the button
Yes, i know this you just mis-understood me
what i was saying is that if the red key light stays on then it doesn't detect the key
whic you probably already know since you changed the batteries to see if that helps
same thing happens with a bad brake switch
if the brake lamps do not light up
because of a bad brake switch, then the car does not know your pushing the brakes
and the push button start won't work
but sure ly it should detect the signal from the key
and not show `the red signal key
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
so the red signal key "stays on"
does not blink
but stays on
but the car does start and run using the emergency key
correct, which means the FOB is nto read from the antennae via RFID signal
but the key registration is still read from the mechanical key
you still didn't answer me though
does the red key light STAY ON
but STAY ON SOLID when you try to start it
I quite pleas ed with progress being made but linkwent down just when I was about to get an answer to my question
I am sorry your having issues.
Mine seems to be working ok.
let's continue. Did you look up and read my previous responses?
