Sorry, one more problem coming up after I posted the previous transmission problem.
It won't start suddenly and it showed " START ERROR " in the dash board. Battery was fully charged, I was told to unlock the door and open it again, but I couldn't start it,.. I tried to use the spare key,
it didn't work either. Hopefully it's a small problem. Did anybody encounter this kind of problem ? Please advise me how to solve it out. Your help is highly appreciated.

Thank you very much, the engine cranks very powerful but it doesn't reach the starting point. Hope my description is clear.

Your next step is to determin if your loosing spark or fuel. Can you check for spark? Pull one of the wires out and plug another spark plug in, ground the base of the plug to the engine just by touching it, and have someone else cranck the engine. check if your getting spark.

Yeah, mine just did that yestersday. Turned it, it WAS the spare key that was the problem! Put the flip key back in, and it's fine. Spare key gets me powerful crank, no turnover.[?]

RE: How to sync the keys

kaiming - 5/17/2005 8:32 AM

Would you please tell me how to syncronize the key ?
Can I do it myself? Thank you very much!

I called the stealership to get something resolved about my keys. THey told me how to sync the keys.

-Put the key in the drivers side dook lock

-turn key to the right for 3 seconds

-then, turn the key to the left for 3 seconds.

Should be set. I've yet to take the time to do mine. I'll report back to let you know how it went.

Thank you very much for telling me how to synchronize the key, I will try it the first thing early next Monday because the car is in the dealer's workshop now. I was very frustrated that they tried to check all the computers related components, the results were all normal. they couldn't find out what's going on there. Hopefully it is a small problem ~~ just the key problem. I will let you know the final result. THANKS AGAIN.
