Car won't start right away, car wont start in colder weather?
my neon is doing peculiar things, started flashing a red light when I turn on the ignition, and flashes for 10 to 30 sec. During this time when in gauging the starter while light flashing nothing happens. I have to wait for this light to go out. My car was bought through an auto salvage and a key was made by a key master..... Secondly when the temperature gets down under 40 . F I must in gauge the ignition 2 times, turning the key all the way off , then on again awaiting for the fuel pump to run again... if I do not wait the car starts but dies off, my fuel pump is 1 year old . Thanks
1st issue sounds like its SKIM related. the key the locksmith made, is it a grey fat key, or is it a skinny black key? the 2nd issue i think is the fuel pump regulator went bad, its located on the fuel pump canister, can be removed from the outside, easily replaced.
we have a grey fat key
ok thats good, although normally if the skim locks you out it wont let you start the car at all, not just a delay. As much as i hate to suggest it, a dealer could check the SKIM system with a DRBIII to ensure it is working properly. that is the only thing i could think of that it could be.
