Is the key in the door or the ignition?

What is going off? the security alarm? Immobilisers are quiet as far as I know.

G'day Len

Sometimes the key will "drop" its code. It has a transponder in it which interacts with the ignition switch. If the codes are not talking to each other, the computer will assume someone is trying to steel it.
You will need to tow it to a dealer and have the key re-programmed

Hi. Don't know if it helps, but my wife has an Applause with remote locking. If you open the doors with the key, not the remote, then the car goes ballistic when you put the key in the ingition and turn it on (wont start; flashing lights, the works). All is fine if you use the remote to open the doors. Also, remember to check the remote batteries from time to time.

Can do, only problem then is that the car will be unroadworthy.

Disconnecting the horn may allow you to drive it to someone who can solve the problem.

My son had a similar problem. had been at the mine site for 14 days, and had keys with him. Car no longer recognized his key.

He had to reset the system or power it down or something like that.

Had a guy leave his Ford ute here overnight. The next morning it refused to start...same problem. Key wasn't talking to puter...last saw the ute on a trayback going to the Ford workshop. He was lucky it didn't happen elsewhere.
