2002 oldsmobil alero security light stays on


The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.

Chevrolet Tahoe, still can`t disable alarm system It`s remote radio system, NO PASSLOCK ! Only 3 buttons remote has - Close/Open and Panic All remotes is ok, all buttons are working, but car accept only...


Not sure of the year of your Tahoe but I can tell you the standard procedure to program your key for say like a 1999. First make sure your battery has a full charge. Next if you have any security related trouble codes stored in your computer, you will need to clear the codes either by clearing them with a scanner or disconnecting the battery for at least 10 minutes to clear the codes. The first step is to turn the key and just let it turn over quick but not enough to where the vehicle starts and shuts down again. Just kind of tap the key as if starting it so the starter turns the engine for a second. When you do that just release the key so it stays in the "Run" position. Lights will be on in the instrument cluster including the security light. The security light may flash on and off. Leave the key in the run position for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the security light usually goes out but not in all cases. After 10 minutes in the run position, turn the key to the off position but do not remove the key. Wait 10 seconds and do the first step again (Tap again let key stay in run position for 10 minutes). You will need to do this 3 times totally about 30 minutes. On the 3rd time when the 10 minutes is up, turn off key, do not remove the key and then start the vehicle. This procedure should work to progam your key. If it doesn\'t you may have another problem with the security system. Let me know how it turns out and I hope there isn\'t another problem and the computer just lost the transponder code. there is a security relay/module that sometimes goes bad in those Tahoes but try programming the keys first. If that doesn\'t work and you need further help as far as that relay/module & to let me know how it turned out,

Check engine light


Hi there:
The four most common Check Engine Light scenarios and what to do:

* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Pay attention at the self-read Jeep codes procedure, note the code numbers there and send it us for additional details:
- put key in ignition
- push and hold the odometer/trip mileage button (the little black one that comes out of the gauge cluster)
- turn the key to the "ON" position (where all the electronics turn on / do not start the Jeep, just turn it to "ON" three times...
ON / OFF / ON / OFF / ON
- Check odometer and note the Pxxxx codes showed there.

Additionally, if you have some Autozone or Autoshop early, they could make this job for free (sometimes) with OBD Scanner Reader Tool.

Hope this helps
