I'm hoping you folks can help me out. I picked up a 2001 Park Ave (120k miles) a couple of weeks ago. I had to jump start it to get home (dead battery), and it ran great (about 40 miles). I got it home, and changed out the battery, now I have a no crank condition. If I turn the key to run, the dash lights up like it should. When I turn the key to start, all the dash lights go out (as they should), but I get no crank at all. Battery has been tested - it passed. Starter has been tested - it's good. This car does not have a chip key. I did notice that the security light stays on (solid - not flashing). I tried the re-learn procedure (10 minutes x 3), but I have have no crank at all. Any suggestions?

All fuses and relays have been checked - I'll try the reset procedure again, and report back..

Tried the reset procedure several times - no difference.

Evidently, you still have a security issue. When you first turn the ignition switch to the ON position, does the security light blink for 2-3 sec and go out, or does it remain ON?
