Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Gauges in my 98 chevy 2500 are not working after putting in different motor. I believe it is the security system that is shutting it down. Where is it located so I can take it out. I am running the wi

There was originally a 350 Vortech in my truck and I put in a 454 big block and manual ******. I since then have torn out wiring for things I don't want like the a/c pump and other such things. My gas gauge, tach and speedometer don't work now. I tried putting in an after market gas gauge and that too doesn't work. I hooked that up directly. My truck runs and drives great. Just the gauges don't work. Where is the security system So i can take it out? How do I get my gauges to work? I have printed off many wiring schematics and everything seems to be hooked up and grounded but not sure if there are wires that they hid in other harnesses as an extra step in security? HELP!

SOURCE: trucks shuts off while driving

I have a 2000 dodge ram. I had the same problem the truck would just stall no matter how fast or slow i was going. It ended up being the crankshaft position sensor. You need to check for codes to find the problem. p0385-p0389 is the crank shaft sensor. It takes about 5 min. to change if thats the problem. On that year you might be able to turn the key to the on position but not starting then off, then on, then off, then on (three times) on the third time leave on and watch the odometer it will flash codes then will say p-done.

This is likely:

- your alternator with either a loose/shorted connection or bad ground or,

- your voltage regulator is malfunctioning (which is probably in the alternator) or,

- your alternaotr is well connected but is malfunctioning.

Can I put a 1998 chevy silverado motor in a 1981 ford 100?


I guess you could, but it won't be easy. I'm sure the transmission won't mate up without an adapter plate. You'll have to build a whole new engine mounting system. And you'll have to bring most of the wiring along with the ECM from the 1998 Chevy engine to make it run in the Ford. You'll have no gauges that work, because the Chevy gauges get their inputs from the ECM and your Ford gauges will have nothing to provide information.

'98 Oldsmobie Intrigue how do I permanently disable the security system?


From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other.
The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, or not seen at all. When the communication breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. (like it thinks it's being hot wired) The car shuts down because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. It will either turn off the starter, or the fuel injectors. The vehicle may run for 2-3 seconds before shutting down. This link explains it pretty well.

Changed water pump, car wont start


Starts everytime and shuts right down? Usually an indication of the security system. I had to bypass a 98 Malibu because of this. A lot of those era Chevys had problems. Check the videos on it. I don't know exactly what one your car has. 2005 impala security bypass YouTube

No, the fuel regulator from a 96 will not fit a 98. The 98 is a vortec and i believe the 96 is TBI. You are on the right track though, but the fuel regulator is attached to the fuel injector spider and is one unit inside the upper intake. It is relative easy to replace just takes some time.
