Question about 2001 Buick Regal
Just bought this car used it was suppose to be a repo but the security light stays on how can I get it to go off. The key they gave me does not have a chip in it.
Hi im wes
only thing you can do is take the vin number to gm and they can make you a key usualy about 50 bucks. if you had the right key i could walk you through bypassing the key reader but you would need to know the ohms of resistance of the chip hope this helps wes
ps please rate me

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Buick
A coworker of mine said he had the same problem with a GM product the same year. I tried it and it worked, so simple. All you have to do is pull the headlight switch on and then start the car, let it run for a few minutes and now it works normal.

A remote starter could be the problem. Have you recently gotten a new ignition key? If you have gotten a new key does it have a chip on it? If so is it the right chip? If no chip on key then that is for sure the problem. As long as that light is on after turning ignition to the on position (not start position) the car will not start when turned to the start position. If this doesn't help you out then submit more information and i'll try to help again.

SOURCE: transmission plugs different
Not if one is a 4t60e and the other is a 4t65e, they are not interchangable. The 1995 should be a 4t60e, It has a round plug toward the radiator and also has a vac modulator. The 2000 should be a 4t65e, It has a bigger round plug coming through the top of the side cover, toward drivers fender, and no vac modulator.
