SOURCE: Truck wont start

Check the fuel pump run relay under the hood in the power distribution box, it may be sticking and not allowing the pump to run after the key is released on start up, crank and run are 2 separate circuits on the pump. claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is not to say some experts may have manuals, we do, but we work from home and in most cases have a small library. Experts are not employed by, we help free of charge as much as we can with the general automotive knowledge we have learned while working as auto technicians, specific test values, repair procedures and illustrations are unique to each car line, these are not in most cases available to us. Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: My security light is on and car wont stay started

My Buick Lesabre has the same problem. Did you install a remote car starter to your vehicle? After we put on on ours the problem got worse and worse and worse. Since I had it removed we've only had the security light come on one time and I think that was a fluke.
You could try another key...perhaps the one you have has a little dirt on the chip. But fear not if the car won't die while you're driving it. The other question: does your security light ever come on and stay on while you are driving?

SOURCE: changed battery, security light comes on and care

The security system (VATS/Passkey) installed on these GM cars is anti-owner more than an anti-theft. There are 3 parts involved: 1) The chip-key 2) The lock cylinder 3) The TDM (aka the brain of the system) if any of these parts fails or is even slightly malfunctioning, the car stays stuck where you are and you only get a dealer asking you about 1,000$ to fix it. And all the 3 parts have a quite short lifespan. Way too many people got in this situation (including myself). I don't recommend any partial solution or any used parts as it would happen again way too soon to be acceptable and if it happens 100 miles from home (like it happened to me....) it's a big burden. I finally made it to save my beloved 94 Park Avenue (with the same system that is installed in your car) with a solution that I found on the internet and that bypasses the entire factory security system, all 3 pieces altogether and you can even remove the TDM at the end and use 99c keys without chip. The product I used is at and is still working perfectly after 5 years. Don't go to the dealer!

See if resetting your ECC (ECM) called the computer will get rid of these problems. You do it by unhooking both battery cables, waiting at least 15 minutes and rehooking the battery. No security thing, only the fact the computer needs new settings for the parts you installed.

A problem like this u would need all the issues before diagnosis. It may have something to do w the air intake temp sensor, coolant sensor, vacuum leak, the temp may timing may affect spark timing etc. Your best bet would be is to get it to an auto tech u trust to scan & ck the computer readings, emissions, & general running condition. Wish I had the specs to help further. Good Luck

You'll need to find out the code that is related to the check engine light. Auto Zone or Advanced Auto can get the codes from the car. That should get you in the general direction.

97 sebring will not run because alarm system wont let it, it just keeps blowing horn and flashing lights.

replace battery in the remote. There should be instructions in the manual if you have one. I believe you need to replace battery and make sure remote is working. then you unlock and lock doors while holding the trunk button do this several time until you let go of unlock button and the locks move by themselves. This is how you reset the car security system. The reason it does this is so no one can steal the car. Or take it to a dealer and ask them to fix the alarm. I hope this helps the owner of the car. lol

to reset the computer simply unplug the battery for about 30 minutes.

However, you have a different problem I believe. you need to check your plugs and wires/coil packs. A fouled spark plug will cause rough running at any speed.

If you're not hearing a click from the starter check for a starter relay. May be burned out! DO you hear the fuel pump kick in when you turn the key on? If not something might have triggered your security system and locked you out!
