The security light remained on the whole way home. Came home shut the car down and started back up again. Later that evening my wife took the car to the store, where it failed to start. She called me I promptly responded with 2 of my children in tow. After checking fuses, reading the owners manual and disconnecting the battery, jiggling the key the car started. . . Thank goodness. Then we got home and it died. Yesterday I checked all fuses to verify, its not that. . Finally determining its in the ignition system relating to the lock cylinder. I have an extended warranty and hope the dealer will fix it. Today I have continued to poke around and attempted to start it. . Successfully after jiggling the ignition/key. Do you know if this is a common problem for this vehicle? unfortunately we do not know if it will start again. This is not a pleasant situation. Do you know what might cause the lock cylinder to do this? will this require new passkeys?. The failure date was 11/01/01.
