On a Dodge Durango 2000 is the security light supposed to be flashing when the security is on?


I would guess at yes. Both my car and motorcycle have a red light that flashes when the alarm is armed. It acts as a visual deterrent to thieves. The lights on both glow steady for a few seconds as it checks itself then once armed they start flashing every 2 or 3 seconds.

Security light is flashing. car will not start on my 2003 oldsmobile alero


I OWN a 2001 Olds Alero and the same thing happens to mine.. It's an easy fix..
1. Turn the Key to ACC (keep it in this mode for the entire 10 minutes).
2. The security light on the Dashboard will flash for exactly 10 minutes..
3. Once the 10 mins are over, the security light will stay solid..
Wait for the red light to disappear off the dashboard...
YOU ARE NOW READY TO TURN YOUR CAR OFF AND RESTART YOU CAR....

SIMPLE FIX..
I DO THIS ALL THE TIME TO MINE..

Why does my mercury montego security light flash


It flashes due to a problem i the systems sensors. You must have the dealer scan the system to see what the faulty area is that is causing the light to flash indicating a fault.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. A month ago I did have the ignition replaced in it to the tune of $795. I got in my car today, and it turns, starts then shuts off after about two seconds. It does...


It still sounds like a passkey or theft deterrent issue. The check engine light is most likely a B2865 or B2860 code for an invalid key, likely related to the ignition switch being replaced. The passlock sensor is inside the ignition switch, and could have been damaged during install. Try just turning the key on and watch the security light, if it starts to flash after a few minutes, keep the key on for 10 minutes (or until it stops flashing). Then retry to start. You may have to have it scanned for further diagnosis.

Security light flashing and car won't start now


does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

Chevy Cavalier starts but won't keep running


ARE THERE ANY SECURITY CODES?

IS THE SECURITY LIGHT FLASHING AFTER A START ATTEMPT WHEN THE KEY IS LEFT IN THE RUN POSITION?

IF THE SECURITY LIGHT IS FLASHING LEAVE THE KEY IN THE RUN POSITION UNTIL IT GOES OUT, SHUT IT OFF, WAIT 10 SECONDS, THEN TRY TO START IT AGAIN. IF IT STARTS YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE THEFT MODULE, BCM, OR THE WIRING BETWEEN THEM.

Notstarting because sercurity system shutdown


You need to either replace the ignition lock cylinder or bypass the security system. If you need help with either one, repost.
