SOURCE: replaced ignition and steering wheel now car wont start -security light on

Hi......
On your Buick 94.
The problem is the ANTI THEFT SYSTEM..
If you have replaced the ignition switch.
If you are using a NEW KEY, the car won't start.
Because in the OLD KEY, is there a Resistence with a number of ohm's
The computer need the resistence to activate the the signals to operate the vehicle.
OK.. with the New Key and Old Key you can go to any Aloha Smith and they will remove the Chip from the Old Key to the New Key.
And the car must start and running.

But if you are using the Same Key that you have before the repair made.
I recomend to check the 2 Orange wires from the Ignition lock Cylinder to the steering column lower connectors.

Ok I hope this work for your problem.
Any moree info, I will glad to help you.
I'm a Mechanic and have all the repair information for all the cars.

Thank you for use fixya...

SOURCE: Key is stuck in the ignition of our 07 GMC Acadia.

I also have a 07 model this happened to me as well.Once I charged the battery I was able to move the key. These SUV's act crazy if the charge on your battery falls below 10 volts.Any other car/SUV would start on 10 volts with no problem. Hopefully they have corrected this in the newer models

How do i reset the security light 2008 GMC Acadia Car will not start Security Light is on.


call a dealership don't try rigging anything you may have to have a official dealership reset it for you but first try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes put key into ignition and turn it to start position as if you were starting the vehicle to help drain capacitors then find something to occupy you for atleast 10 mins while battery is disconnected (you may have to reprogram your radio stations so make sure you know them.

I have an Acadia 2007 and I tried to start the engine. The engine didn't start and the key has stuck into ignition and I cannot remove it How can I fix it. (The stick is in parking position). Thanks


The battery is either dead, or the battery voltage is too low to power up the lock solenoid in the steering column to release your key. Jump start it, and then go get your battery/charging system diagnosed!

I have a GMC Acadia 2010 and when I turned off the SUV the radio don't turn off


has it always been this way, as some vehicle's do have this ridiculous system , some go off when the ignition key is removed completely , if this is a new issue i'd think the ignition switch could be the issue, as not cutting power off completely, so i'd start with getting the ign switch checked out

Why wont my vehicle start when there is a lock symbol on the dash?


I had this same problem with my 2004 gmc envoy. Mine was a key problem. I had a 2001 impala that had identical keys that contain a chip that is read by the ignition switch. Both of my keys were near each other on the keyring and when the impala key was to close to the ignition the truck would not start and the light came on that looks like a lock. I took the impala key off the keychain and never had another problem.

Key is stuck in the ignition of our 07 GMC Acadia. The blinkers are not working at the rear of the vehicle, windows will not work. All of this happened at once.


The same thing happened to me yesterday. My blinkers are not working, windows will not roll down, automatic seats wil not move, and my key is stuck in the ignition. The battery was almost dead so my husband changed it; however, the problem still exists. What was the solution with your car? Thanks:)
