When I purchased the car the car dealership could not find the key so they had a locksmith come out and rekey it. Now the rekeyed key has been lost but the original key was found. When put the key in it turns on and lights and radio work but will not crank the car. Is there something I can do to get the key to work again to start the car without having to call a locksmith?

Car was running but needed a water pump and intake gaskets UT after it was put back together it is not getting any fire to spark plugs

Installed new blower after old one seized. New blower would not activate. Also replaced burned BCM connector. Still no blower activity. blower works when bypassing BCM with jumper wire. Gray/black wire shows 7.9V at all fan speed settings.

Update: Pushrod I have an update on my 1997 Park Avenue, engine compartment ticking sound. My mechanic could not make a definitive diagnose, so he asked the mechanic next store that works on transmissions and he said it could be a hairline crack in the fly wheel, is that possible? Please let me know what your thinking. I had an estimate done over the phone and the price is $66.18 + tax for the part for a grand total of $720.18 with labor. Please help me rule this job out?

The ticking sound is almost non existent when in neutral, but once in gear the ticking is much more pronounced. It's not loud and isn't always present. It comes and goes but always comes back. I hear it more when a car pulls up along side of me. What do you think it is. Today the mechanic tightened down the torque converter bolts. After that process the noise is still there. Please help me with some ideas. If anyone has experienced this issue please let me know what it is?

I started having problems last month with my air condition. Cool air comes out on the passenge side but not the driver's side, just hot air. The mechanic said the main control switch was out and I would have to take it to a dealership.

It just stopped going while driving with no warning of any problems. Engine runs good. Wasn't driven much for several years have had to replace some dry rotted gaskets and air intake valve is all. only 101,000 miles.

The dash instruments panel doesn't work and passenger side doors won't open as well.. Are there any kind of diagnostics tool that would tell me the problems?
