You probably have a broken wire in the ignition that reads the resistance in the chip in the key. there are two wires that attach the ignition switch to the security system.I had the same problem and it can be easily fixed by putting a resister in place of the chip in the key.any garage that puts alarm systems in cars will be able to do this very easily and very economically.

95 chevy lumina.. security light flashing car wont start, passkey 2.. can i relearn it? how can i fix it cheap??


If your key has the black bump on the side of it, you can try to clean it. That is the resistor for the security system. The ignition reads that bump and if the resistance doesn't match, it won't start.

99 mercury cougar wont crank no spark anti theft light flashing


a bad security system would restrict the ignition system from activating so the engine may be perfectly fine but until the security system give it the ok, its gonna sit. have someone take a look at the security system and see if they cant fix the system or deactivate it (what use is a security system if your car wont start right?)

99 chevy lumina wont start and the secruity light flashes


This is a pretty common occurence in GMs. Go to this link, try the 10 minute quick fix. If that doesn't work, you'll be looking at taking it to the dealer, or bypassing the security system. You can bypass it yourself. Go to this link for info and "do it yourself" options. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Hi, you may want to bypass your steering column for the passkey system. There is a good procedure posted online that I have used successfully in the past. Please read this and let me know if you have questions.
