Goodluck! , Thermostate goes bad (it might be placed it reverse way) or gatting stuck not opening. Engine might die it you wont have it checked ASAP. Also if you bought an aftermarket cap (not for GM) it might cause the ptoblem with coolant pressure. Check that it says for how much psi. Hope that helps Good Luck , check oil, you probably have it very low. and that clicking sound you hear could be your lifters. take it to get an oil change you dont want to bust your head , You have a bad hazard flash switch (your 4 way flasher) you have a short inside the switch ,very common you will need to replace it to stop the problem , I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead. I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter. I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on! Good luck. Slick. , Ok then, from your description and the make/model/year of the car you have there, it appears you've reset the VATS. The car's security immobilizer reader at the key switch does not recognize the coded chip in the ignition key any longer. You can try to put the key in the ignition, turn to the on position & wait at least 10 min like that. (Do not turn off the key switch before 10 minutes as elapsed!) Once done, the key is re-programmed and should allow the fuel injectors to work again. The car would start now if corrected. In some cases, the VATS (GM'S VEHICLE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM) will re learn the code this way, and will then allow the restart, however if this does not work, then you can simply tow it to any GM vehicle dealer to have the service department re code it. There is a permanent solution though. Adding the PLJX Self learning Bypass module (59.95) will bypass the PASSLOCK system in your vehicle for good. See this at www.PASSLOCK2.com Good luck I hope method 1 does the trick! Here is the 30 min relearn: Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.
