    Looks like you are trying to start the car with a key that is not programmed. Try another key, and let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: car won't start security light

If the security light is blinking, then the security system is DEFINATELY the reason why your car won't start. The actual cause of the problem is MOST LIKELY a defective ignition switch that is not sending the information from your key to the computer.

Try this:

FIRST try a different key if you have more than one for the vehicle. I have had cars towed into my shop simply because someone was trying to use a cheap duplicate key that was cut at the hardware store. These keys are fine for the doors and trunk. They are great to have around in case you lock your keys in your car. However, they do not have the electronics built into them to allow for engine starting.

If you are using the correct key and a second key also does not work. then...
1. set your parking brake (this will disable your daytime running lamps and conserve battery power.)
2. Connect a battery charger to the vehicle battery if you have one, or see if someone can connect to your battery with jumper cables.
3. Turn the ignition to the START position for about one second. Then release the key to the RUN position. DO NOT turn the ignition OFF.
4. Wait about 10 minutes until the security light quits flashing. Turn the key (without turning it off) to the START position again. The engine should start. If it does not, then you will have to get your car towed in for service.

HINT: you may want to try this a couple times to make sure you are doing it correctly before towing.

If it does start, it is recommended that you have your security system checked for fault codes. I have seen this many times, and it only gets worse and does it more often until this method no longer works to get it started.

The process for the passlock relearn is correct. If by chance the relearn does not work, you may have a fail component in the system. Go to this link for options to fix this yourself.

When I try to start car, it won't start and security light blinks. I'v e had to ignition switches put on before and I had a new key made. Car still won,t start.


If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.

My 2001 pontiac grand am does not want to start.


check and make sure your security light isn't on.  The security feature malfunctions on these models often.  If the security light is on, turn everything in the car off (radio, a.c. etc.) turn the key off, turn it back on to acc tap it into start until if just starts to turn over then leave it in the relaxed start position.  Allow the car to just sit like this for up to 20 minutes.  The security light will go off and you will then be able to turn the key off and then start the vehicle.
