Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System

2001 suburban wont start because of sercurity system

Most likely is the security system. It will have to be repaired by a dealer to be correct .If it was damaged in the accident your insurance will pay for the electrical repair by a qualified dealer. Insurance takes care of things other than physical damage.

01 camaro sercurity light flashing and car wont start

This is a failure in your antitheft system. The ignition is not reading the key properly, or the ignition is not sending the "ok" signal to the theft computer properly. (Theft Deterrent Module) Either way, the car is not starting due to the failure in this system. This is proven by the SECURITY light. The hard part is finding the broken link in the system's chain. This site will help you understand the problem, along with a possible 100% fix if you decide to go that route.

Red sercurity light flashes in my truck

You could try re locking the doors then unlock them. Then open the hood and disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for 2 minutes. Hook up the battery and start the truck. This will flush the PCM's cache and restore everything to its normal state.

My car wont start the sercurity like flashes all my lights do come on when i try to start my car but it wont kick over when i try to start my car

If the light is flashing it may be an issue with the passlock sensor.Here is a process you can try to reset the passlock. If this process does not work you may need to replace the ignition tumbler and passlock.
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

1996 Buick regal won't turn over

how did u select the correct key? it is done by measuring the resistance (with an Ohm meter) of the little wire i n the key and then getting the correct key number that is assinged to the ohm value of the key, did you understand this? If u dod not get this resistance reading then you have the wrong key and the system will keep u locked out.
