    Wait Three Minutes

    I had my Eldo n the frame machine at the body shop. When I went in car to start up, I turned the key to start and got nothing. I then got a message on display that said Wait Three Minutes. After 3 minutes exactly, new message came up that said Start Car. car did start. has been fine since. what is this for? what set off this feature? just curious.

    Re: Wait Three Minutes

    Something put the Theft Control system on alert.

    Welding, battery disconnect, pull a "hot" circuit connector and reconnect - anything which might make the car think it is being tampered with.

    Is there any further explanation in your owner's manual ?
