The only other key I have is a spare I had made at Home Depot just to get me in the vehicle when we lock our keys inside. I know this will not start the vehicle as I have tried and it is not coded to the vehicle. But back in the day when I had the key made, I did try to start the vehicle and it would in fact start it then it would shut off after 2 seconds. The original key that I still have for the vehicle won't even start it for the 2 seconds. It will only turn over, nothing else. I will go home and try the "spare key" but I am petty sure it will do the same. Am I right in assuming the icon that comes on the dash with the picture of the key with the circle around it and a line through it is the anti-theft light. And if it is still on when the original key is in the ignition where does that leave me??

Also, While I was looking all over for a short somewhere I did notice there is a small hinged plastic covered bracket inside the driver door jamb that slides through a small box mounted inside the driver door. That small hinged bracket has all/most of the plastic broken off of the bracket leaving the exposed metal. What is this for. It does not have enough support for the door itself and I did not see any wires coming from the box in which it slides through. Any thoughts???

could be the door stop that has all the coating worn off its bout half way between the upper hinge and the wire protector
yes if the light with the key is on the car is in protect mode some will not start at all once code is set (sorry to say that i dont know how to turn it off )

my light comes on while driving, stays solid, not blinking. she still runs but has died on me a few times.... but always starts right back up. did you ever get it fixed?? it points to the SKIM (SECURITY KEY IMMOBILIZATION MODULE) as having a fault..?? but it only happens when the temperature is under 45 degrees. so i am thinking a bad connection somewhere....

wow I just noticed that this post is a year old...My 2001 JGC is sitting in a parking lot wher I had to leave it ..my wife and I camr out of the resturant with the key that has no transmitter so we as usually jump in and start it while the horn is honking and it stops when the engine starts this time the horn kept right on going so I pulled the batterie ( neg cable) off and found the horn fuse and removed it. Ok so went to start it up again and it began the 2 second shutdown routine....I discovered that that system has its own fuse-- 10 amp in the 12 position under dash . I pulled it out and as a result engine would only turn over ...so maybe that is your problem the fuse is blown.. I had a friend drive me home to get the other set of keys with the remote so I was able to reset alarm but not the shut off . it wont stay runing.
