SOURCE: 99 chevy lumina wont crank!

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.

Sounds like it has jumped timing, dont know which engine you have so could be chain or belt.

SOURCE: chevy lumina, lost keys, broke ignition, need to fix the wires

Solder and shrink tubing work fine for that. That is for the pk2 theft module that tells the car that you are using the correct key with the chip in it.

Looks like ignition current is not being available to fire the fuel/air injected mixture from the plugs. Remove the cable tip which connects TO any plug. Hold the cable tip to any metal part of the engine block or any part of the body where the metal is exposed(not painted). Ask a friend to turn the ignition for starting the engine(vehicle). If the cable tip produces sparks, then the induction coil is OK, but since you have stated that clicking sound is heard which is actually the relay's which tries to get the induction coil to generate high current required for producing the spark to ignite the fuel & air mixture in each cylinder, thus starting the combustion required to turn the engine & subsequently power. So check the induction, belt tightness and finally the "Distributor"in the sequence as stated and you will be able to diagose which one of the above are malfunctioning............sodeep

You will need to drop the tank if you have a strong gas odor. Rubber line between sending unit and metal pipe is leaking.

I need to know how to reset the security light on a 1998 chevy lumina and will this keep it from starting if its been activated?


Looks like the TDM in the security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it can get worse till the car wont start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

1998 chevy lumina driving down the road and it just died. it will turn over but wont start. Something with the fuel system? Changed filter.


There are literally dozens of thing that could cause a car to die and not start again. If could be fuel related: fuel pump, fuel filter, fuses, bad gas, etc. It could be spark related: crankshaft sensor, ignition module, coil pack, etc. It could be mechanical: timing chain (or belt), broken internal engine parts, etc. My point is, it is impossible to determine what's wrong without further diagnostis. I recomend you take the car to a mechanic you can trust and have it looked at. Stay away from the big chain stores and find an independant garage.
