    PLace the key in the ignition in the on position for 10 minutes , the symbol should stop flashing , may take longer up to 20 minutes. When it stops flashing she will crank.

    if you leave the key in the ignition in the on position, eventually you will see the symbol on the dash stop flashing , typically takes 10 minutes. Somtimes longer . When it stops flashing the car will start. this will just get you to point B , no telling when it will happen again.
