Hi Rad,
Sounds like the immobilizer has lost coding. We have experienced the same thing when the owner of this type of vehicle held a mobile phone which rang as he was putting the key from the ignition. Apparently the cell phone signal canceled the signal from the key. Seems you'll need to have the key recoded. (This part is whispered so only you can hear....When the guys quote the price, haggle with them until they bring it within reason....shhhhh. :-))

Changing the light bulb on your vehicle should be through the engine compartment. There is a plastic ring which holds the bulb in. Carefully remove the wiring harness at the light bulb, turn the ring about a quarter of a turn or so and slide the bulb assembly out. Replacement is the reverse of installation, but be careful NOT to touch the glass on the light bulb, as it will ruin it. The oils from your hands will actually cause the bulb to swell in the place where you touched it and it can bubble and then burst when it gets hot. If you happen to touch it though, clean it with a clean cloth and denatured alcohol.

I hope this helps! :)

I had the exact same problem on my 96 swift. My mechanic found a shortage in the electrical cable going in behind the engine by the firewall. Those cables are to close to the engine and after a while they melt.

not too difficult, get a manual, there are some tricks involved, you will need to raise the vehicle a few feet off the ground and access to a tranny jack, a good had floor to work on and about 8 to ten hours

you have a bad flasher which is about the size of a "c" battery located under the dash on the driver side, no tools necessary just untwist the old one and twist in the new one , between 5 and 15 dollars
