Since the time I removed Alarm Box I was getting "Checking" and then "Service Theft Alarm". Check OK is new since my car was stall again two days ago.Why is Checking... Check OK a strange new symptom? The car should do that every time you turn the key on.
I just discover that issue with fuse 13 this morning. So can't answer how relaible it is. So far I tried at least ten times and it always started.Sounds like maybe there is possibly a short. I would examine the wiring diagram and trace exactly where fuse 13 goes, then try disconnecting or otherwise removing each of those things to see if they're the cause. When fuse 13 is removed, does it start and run every time? Like over multiple days or weeks?
Thanks , except that with Fuse 13 removed I have the blinker sound. I am a little confused. Turning key problem is the key cylinder problem? Correct?. Is the DICE and TWICE the same unit? And what about Ignition Switch Module? And where they are locted?if your not getting the blinker sound , that goes to the sid speaker IIRC, which i believe is is DICE powered which gets it's power from the ignition switch, A bad DICE doesn't get better, same with TWICE looking back your ride (or lack of) is a 2001 which had many issues with the ignition switch.
if you have trouble turning the key that is also a sign of things broken within the switch
I was flushing key cylinder and key with WD-40 I don't see any problems with turning or pupping up. Given that can the cylinder itself be eliminated as a potential cause?People confuse the ignition switch with the cylinder where the key actually goes the switch is underneath the cylinder with a large Loom of wires connected to it powering most items the tabs break off allowing the key to not turn correctly and all kinds of strange things happen,power to some not others, non starting etc.
Thanks Bob, I had to confuse numbers. #11 is feeding DICE or TWICE and I am focusing on this one because three days ago I found this fuse burnt. I don't think it was bad before but it is possible. Also we are talking a lot about DICE and TWICE as a potential culprits.Pull the radio and disconnect it. Put #13 back in and see what happens.
I don't see #13 feeding the DICE or TWICE.
It feeds the Radio (all three connectors on the rear)
It feeds the ODB II connector under the steering wheel (not normally connected to anything)
If feeds the CD Changer connector in the trunk
Maybe there's a bleed in the trunk (wet?). Perhaps there's a short in the OBDII connector area feeding voltage some place it's not supposed to go?
Thanks a lot, this is the side where I am getting some water to the trunk. I will check it tomorrow.The CD Changer connector is in every 9-3. Remove the left side trunk panel and you'll find it behind there. Multiple pins... I think ten but I don't recall exactly. But it will just be hanging around back there.
