You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.
If the Security Light is on but is not flashing, the security system is fine. If the security light is flashing then turn the ignition key to the run position (do not start). Wait over ten minutes and then try to start the engine. After the ten minutes you should notice that the light stopped flashing. If the engine starts then you do have a problem with the Passlock Security System.
I will strong recommend you, to inspect the wiring polarity.
2) The positive + with respective wire and ground or negative with respective ground.
3)Tight very well each connection. 4)Clean each connection from Oxide( very important) 5)Test the circuit breaker or fuse and reset or replace it. 6)If the problem persist. You must go to inspect the battery and Starter from your supplier company.
im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.
you can also try pulling the fuel pump relay under the hood and put it back in. works on my 2000 alero. and yes if the security light is on, you need to turn the key on and wait about 10 min. until it stops flashing, then turn off, then start car.
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.
yes, the security system will cut fuel to the cylinders or stop the car from cranking. what you can do is called a 30 minute re-learn. have everything turned off and a charger hooked up to the battery if possible, put the key in and attempt to start, release key to the run position and let it sit for about 10 minutes or untill the security light goes out. turn key off for 5 seconds and repeat the process 2 more times. after the process is done 2 more times the car should have re-learned the key and it should start. if it still doesn't start the problem might be somewhere else in the security system but try the 30 minute re-learn first. i can assist you with this problem further if needed as i have excellent resources.
