My Hyundai Matrix car is not starting. When I turn the key to start the car it tumbles, but won't start the engine. I know that it is not the battery because we took the same battery and installed it into our second Matrix car, and that car is starting perfectly. We have been told by a friend that very likely the immobiliser needs to be reset. Can someone please tell me what the procedure is to reset the immobiliser and where it is located. Please advise any help will be highly appreciated.

I can't reset it like the manual says and I'm worried it will run out my battery. The car starts and works normal but the light is flashing constantly unless the car ignition is in position 4 or 5.

2006 Chevy Colorado doesn't start all of the time. have to wait about 15 minutes and then it will usually start up like there was nothing wrong. When I try to start it right away, it either: Turns over, but doesn't start. or It does a clicking noise like the battery is dead. Or it will act like it isn't going to turn over, do a voltage interruption (clock resets), tries to restart on its own and then starts up. Sometimes it starts up strong the first time for a month straight and then gives me p

Similar issue I had my friend ''jump start'' my car after the ignition failed to turn on whatsoever. I didn't even hear so much of a click. After a few minutes, we heard a click as we tried to start up the car, but it would not. It seems like the gas gauge is still receiving power (it should be shut off when the car is), and the clock is still on. Power windows, locks, lights, and overhead lights will not turn on either. I did not leave anything on in the 6 hours I had it parked, so I don't know

I have a 2002 trailblazer ltz, I go to start the truck and it just clicks under the hood, no noise or anything. The lights on the console comes on and the radio says that's it's on but it only plays static. Also everything seems to be reset in the car like the car was saying "Driver 1" even though I had the driver 2 key and remote and also the time on the radio was reset to 12:00.
