    It is either the chip or computer.

    To get your truck started:

    1. Place key in ignition and leave in "on" positon for a full 10 minutes. (do not try to start or turn off)

    2. After a full 10 minutes then try to start.

    If no luck then you need to have a diagnostic computer ran on your vehicle.

Why is my security light flashing and it starts but shuts down after a few seconds?

Possible issue with you security module. I think it is linked to your BCM, but I could be wrong. I had the same issue some time ago. After 10 minutes, the car would start. Try getting another key at the dealership. It could be that the chip in your key is starting to go bad.

They security light is on in our 95 Pontiac Bonneville it will start up an run for a few seconds then shuts down but it does it every time you start the car what could be the problem

Well, the anti-theft system should prevent the engine from cranking and starting. So if it will crank and start then die, it could be a long list of things. You would need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
The security light usually means the computer is not accepting the chip in the key. Either the chip is bad or the sensor in the lock cylinder.

Yesterday My 1997 xj6 would not turn over, all dash lights came on but when the key was turned to start nothing happened, no click from the solenoid, the other thing I noticed was the interior lights did...

Just a shot in the dark. If your key has the magnetic chip in it, the chip may be week. Try another key if you have one.
We have a key without a chip in it we hide under the car. It will turn the ignition but will not crank(dealer told us that). One more thing the dealer who made the key told us not to try cranking the car with it because the car could think someone is stealing it and shut down till a dealer input codes to allow the car to run again.

I get a green light with a key in the center flashing when I try and start my eclipse and it cranks fast

Generally speaking, you have a chip in the key that is read by the security system. If the system does not "see" the right chip, the system locks out the ignition and fuel systems.
The new key probably does not have a chip or the wrong chip.

Please turn the ignition on (not onto the start position just on to get the ignition lights to come on) and observe the yellow immobiliser light on the dashboard when you first turn the ignition on - Does it come on and stay on or does it come on and flash or does it come on and then go out? This sounds like an immobiliser issue, the ignition key has a chip inside it that has a code which is recognized by the engine ecu and if this recognition does not happen it will fire up and immedialtely cut out. The batteries in the key are for the remote central locking only. The chip is electronic.Try a spare key if you have one

My security light is on and car wont stay started

Try turning the key on and leaving it on for about 30 minutes this should reset the security protection. This happens with my mom's Impala and this is how they told her to fix it. It works for hers both being GM should be similar security system let me know if it works

sounds like a security problem. most hondas have a chip in the key try another key. if your battery went dead that will make your security light come on when you try to start it will run for a few seconds then shut off look at the light indecater that shows a key or says secureity. this light will flash at you and continue as long as you got the key in the start posistion. the car may think its been stolen. using the correct not a spare that is used to unlock the doors.but the key you use every day put it into the door and turn it to lock twice then unlock twice this should reset your system
if you have a security system that is after market look under your dash board for a red or yellow wire that has a small reset button on it. above the pedals or on the left side of the floor board by the fuses. if you have this type turn the key to the on but not start hold the button for 5 seconds then let go. turn the key off wait 10 seconds then try to start your car K HAVE FUNNNNN
