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 misinterperates 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. This link explains it pretty well.

How can I turn off horn alarm from my pt cruiser 2002


The key fob disables the security system and will shut off horn. If you want horn not to blow during lock and unlock, there should be a deactivation feature in your dash set up menu. Have a look in owners manual for more info and if deactivation is an available selection

Do you have to have a security key for the ignition on a 1998 dodge dakota


For the 1998 the system it was called VTSS (vehicle theft security system) the activation and deactivation is in the door switch. So inside the driver and passenger door lock switch was the trigger.To deactivate use the door switch (there is no key immobilizer ,it wasnot invented yet)

Cart will not start untill security light goes. I don't have any means to activate/deactivate security system


Depending on the year, make, and model, this link should help you out. The security light only comes on if you are using the wrong key, trying to hotwire the car, or the system is failing. Most likely the system is failing..... There is no reset button or deactivation of these systems, the problem must fixed or bypassed. I've had great luck with just bypassing the system entirely. These systems are known to fail and cost up to 1000 bucks to fix. Trust me on this. Bypass it. You can fix this yourself. Read about it on this link

93 grand ltd Stalls after intial start all dummy lights come


greetings: the reason your veh will not run is because the security system has been activated. it will allow you to start it but the security system kills the motor so the veh can not be driven off if in fact it was being stolen. if you have the remote control, lock the veh and then unlock it. this will shut the security system down and return your veh to normal and it should start and run normal. i have a 93 and 94 both worked this way. using the key to lock and unlock to shut the system did not work for me but the remote did the job.also anytime the batt cable is removed, the security system will activate when you put the batt cable back on. then you have to do what i described above on mine to deactivate the security system. the manual says use the key to deactivate the system but that does not work on mine. i hope this helps have a great day wayne
