Leave key in "ON" position (not start) for EXACTLY 10 MINUTES! As SOON as the light shuts off, turn key and start key.

Every time you put key in, turn and start right away, DO NOT HESITATE.

There is a problem with the car's computer causing this problem IN ALL GM VEHICLES.

Anti-theft system problem , possibility ! Do you have a security light blinking ? Security Indicator

I have a 99 cadillac deville it turns over, cranks up but won't stay cranked i replaced the starter and the plugs it still wont stay cranked


Antitheft or Security system failure is a common problem on GM vehicles. Every time you put your key in the ignition, the vehicle's security system reads the signal from your key to make sure it is OK to run. When it receives the "correct key" signal, the security system allows the starter to turn over, and/or the fuel injectors to function and your car works like it normally does every day. If you were to use a different key, or try to hot wire it, the system would shut down these parts of your car, thus making the vehicle completely immobile. This is GM's way of preventing vehicle theft. The problem is that the system is known to fail quite commonly. It has been failing consistently for around 30 years. When it fails, two things can happen. First, you turn the key and nothing happens at all. Lights work, radio works, windows work... just not the starter that you need to start the vehicle. This is a "starter immobilizer". Second, you turn the key and the vehicles starts just fine, but then stalls in 2-5 seconds. This is a "fuel immobilizer". It literally cuts off the fuel injectors and stalls the vehicle to immobilize it. These are normally, but not always followed by a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. These lights are to inform you of the system's failure to collect the information it needs from your key to the computer. If your security/antitheft light is on, odds are you will be stranded soon, if not already. Remember that the security system controls the security light. If the system is failing, the light may never warn you of the failure. There is a lot of info on this site that you can read up on. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

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.

Have an Oldsmobile 1997 Achieva security light stays on and won't everyhing but still won't start , would like to know would the Pro VATS Full Bypass work on it.


If the security light is on, then you have a failed antitheft system. This light is only for this. If you bypass the system, your car will work perfectly again.

1991 park avenue will start but shuts down it will not stay running. replaced fuel filter still will not stay running


Check to see if the security light illuminates on the dash when it is not starting. If the key is forward and the security light is on, you have a problem with your vats security system. If this is the case, check out this link http://newrockies.com/passkey.

Changed alternator and disconnected battery in the process. security system will not let me start the car


I don't think 1995 Grand cherokee has an immobilizer. Aftermarket security. Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas? Sounds like you need to perform the idle relearn procedure.

I think its my starter or fuel pump, but not sure.


If your security light is on it may be your key that's preventing the car from starting. It's programmed with a code to prevent theft (Pass II theft deterrant system or something like that). So either the key is screwed up or the module that reads it is screwed up - either way it will disable your ignition.
