My neighbor changed the steering wheel on a 2001 suburban and now security light is on. Now the truck starts then dies. I need a passlock diagram


Sounds like you need to do a 30 minute security relearn. Basically turn the key to the run position, do not start. Leave it in the run position for approximately 10 minutes. The flashing security light will go out. Turn the key off for 5 seconds. Turn it back to the run position for another 10 minutes. Again the light will stop flashing. Tune the key off and repeat one more time. When the light stops flashing turn the key of and then start the vehicle.

There are also plenty of references to this online as well. Good luck.

1998 buick skylark security theft light on,car starts and turns of right away?


Your PassKey Security System is malfunctioning. The most likely cause is a bad ignition lock cylinder. Try this to get it started:
1. Set the parking brake. (This will keep your headlamps from coming on and running your battery down)
2. Turn the key to the "START" position and release it to the "RUN" position. (Do not turn the key to the "OFF" position or you will have to start over.)
3. Leave the key in the RUN position for about 10 minutes until the SECURITY light stops flashing.
4. When the light stops flashing, turn the key to the "START" position again.


This should get the engine started so you can drive the vehicle to get it repaired.

I go to start the truck and when i turn the key it attempts to start and automically stops.The really strange is that it has happened 3 times and in about 15min.it will all of a sudden start. I have a...


It could be several things but when it does it again try loosening you fuel cap and see if it starts,also check the cam and crank shaft position sensors,if your scan tool has a stand alone feather try having hooked to the truck when you are having this problem,before the truck actually starts some times the codes are reset once the trucks computer catches back up and resets to running smooth.good luck

Truck sometimes starts and sometimes wont. i hear a clicking soun


Unbolt and clean your battery terminals if dirty or corroded, preferably replace the bolts (good auto parts stores stock them, and they take some effort to remove and replace them but it's necessary to properly clean the terminals anyway) charge, jump or replace battery ... connect battery terminals and don't over tighten ... start the truck, check charging system gauges confirm charging voltage over 12V 13.8V-14.5V and lights should be bright as normal ... if so, you may be fixed ... if not you have charging system issues, that will be the next post if needed.

My truck won't start unless i shake the gear shaft


This defiantly sound like an electrical short and it won't get better with time. Check all the connections a the base of the steering post. I don't think the transmission is the sorce of the short.
