i recently changed out the ignition in my 2000 stratus, now the security light is flashing crazy and it wont stay running. how do i get that to stop and the engine to stay running?
That's because you're now using a key that the car doesn't recognize. The new key must be programmed into your car's security system. HTH. -Jim
i have the keys that came with the ignition that i put in. does that matter? the keys that i have go with the ignition i put in. im sure i need to get computer reset, do i need to go to a dealership for that?
Your Stratus has a transponder key. By using the key that came with the new lock your car doesn't recognize that new key. Unfortunately you'll have to have either the dealer or locksmith program it for you. Unless someone else here chimes in and knows how to program it. HTH. -Jim
going to the dealer; will that be expensive?
Probably about $100.00 or so. -Jim
thank you for your help
You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim
