SOURCE: chevy cavalier z24 theft system light on

This is a easy fix. Lucky just follow the procedure and your car will start. This is a theft system shut down.
The procedure is. Disconnect battery for a minimum of 30 seconds. ( one post is OK. )
Reconnect battery and get in the car and start as usual 1 time only. When it starts and stops letthe key just return to run position as if it was running. Do not shut it off and if you do you must stert the procedure all over again. i usually put on the emergency brake before i start and that shuts of the driving lights etc.
Just leave the key in on running position and go have a coffee. it takes 15 to 20 minutes for the car to recycle the system. When you come back to the car the flashing theft light will either be off or solid.
Try to start again. If it doesn't go shut it off and turn back on and start as usual. It will start and run and stay running.
The reason you have this problem is something electronic was disconnected whe the battery was hooked up. always disconnect the battery before you touch anything electronic and you will not have this problem.

SOURCE: security light was coming on

When ever the security light comes on, it only means one thing. The PASSLOCK anti theft in your vehicle is not communicating properly with itself. It sounds confusing, but its really simple.

Your key has a trasnponder (radio waves) in it. So not only must the key be "cut" correctly to turn the the ignition like every other key, but it must also send the correct radio signal to the ignition. This signal is then sent from the ignition/lock cylinder to the TDM (theft deterrent module) which in turn activates the starter and injectors. Which then allows your to start your vehicle or remain running.

The system is a great idea, because without the actual transponder key near the ignition, you can't even hotwire the vehicle. The problem is. Passlock has about a 5-7 year lifespan. Costs anywhere from $350-$700 + labor to fix, and is gaurenteed to fail again on you down the line. Diagnosing which part of the system is not working is next to impossible yourself, and many people end up throwing vehicles away because of this.

The good news is, when this happened to me, i found some ways to beat this system. Check out this link. Im sure you will find some sort of help on it. It gives you a rundown of symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions to the problem. Good luck and i hope this helps you.

2002 cavalier, trac off light came on and then car died and could not get it started again


I would agree with the mechanic. Since the engine will start but dies, you can assume that the battery may be (barely) strong enough to start the vehicle but not strong enough to keep it running. After the engine starts, the alternator does the lions share of producing enough electrical energy to produce a strong spark at the spark plugs. If the alternator is not doing its job, the battery drain fairly rapidly and your engine will die. Within a fair degree of certainty, I would say that the "trac off" light will not occur after the alternator is replaced.
Best of luck!

I have a 02 Cavalier that when your driving the Trac off light comes on when the light is on it runs rough and shifts hard but if i put it in park turn it off and restart it it's fine


There is a malfunction in you antilock brake/traction control system. When the TRAC light is on, the computer is trying to tell you either 1. That the traction control is active and is controlling your brakes, engine and transmission to stop a wheel skid, or 2. There is is a malfunction in your traction control system.

In the first case above, the TRAC light will only be on for a few seconds until the conditions causing your wheels to slip no longer exist. If the light is staying on even though there is no way your wheels are slipping or skidding, then this is a malfunction. You must scan both your Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and your Antilock Brake System (ABS) module to properly diagnose a problem with this system.

Car won't start--stopped running while driving appears to be fuel pressure did not overheat--trac off light followed by the service engine soon light came on while driving and within a couple miles the car...


Check the fuel pressure.
If no pressure, then check for power at the pump when cranking. If not, it is the fuel pump relay. You an pull it and put a jumper across the secondary leads to get it to run.

Enginge shuts off when in reverse


Does it do it when putting the car in drive? It could be your lockup solenoid or possibly a bad torque converter. Please do not take my word for it, take it to a licensed ford mechanic (have it towed I should say)

Fuel pump or something else


Hi the trac off light and the car not running have nothing to do with each other
the TRAC OFF LIGHT will set a code in the EBCM
to check the fuel pump remove the gas cap and have someone turn the key to run and while you listen at the filler neck if you can hear a humming noise then the pump is working
if the pump is working then check fuel pressure and spark
hopes this helps you
