What lights there are over 30 lamps. on all cars.(MOST)

IF you meant head lights then fix that first.
the head lights failing shows the main power feed from the battery
is bad, (corrosion at any point , battery #1 due to acid there)

SOURCE: 1999 2dr chevy tahoe security light flashes truck won't start

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) The TDM is what tells your computer that the correct key is being used and that it is "OK" to allow the vehicle to start and run. These 3 parts must be in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending important signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, (normally due to a failing/broken part) the car goes into antitheft mode. The car misinterperates this and thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is NOT getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. So basically, if that light is on, your system has some sort of failing part. This can start as an intermittent "no start", to your vehicle not running for days at a time, to the vehicle NEVER starting again. The problem is electrical and computer based, so don't count on an easy reset button, or the problem fixing itself. The hard part is isolating which part is the problem. You can spend a thousand dollars through a mechanic very easily. I have had great luck with bypassing the entire system. This way the problem will never return. It actually CAN'T ever return because it is eliminated. This can also be done yourself at a much cheaper cost. Read through this link very carefully. You'll find alot of information and pictures, along with ways to help you fix this.

89 Jaguar xj6 won't turn over.


First thing I would do is charge up the battery, and check base fuel pressure with a gauge. Using starting fluid is going to be tough - its the large black hose in front of the master cylinder which is tough to get to.
If it cranks over fast enough, and has fuel pressure and spark, it should start without any help.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and it won't start. Just keeps clicking and won't turn over. I need some help please. Thanks


use test light, connect clip on grnd. , touch tip on the starter wire while turning key , if it lights starter is faulty , no light, solenoid is faulty, if it lights and indicates starter is cause you can try to gently tap starter with plastic handle of screwdriver if tapping gets it moving then brushes in starter are dirty or near worn out hope this helps

Ok I have a 89 chevy 1500, it start, runs, and go. When I hit the blinker signal, the battery volts drop, and when I come off the brakes and accelerate, the brake and battery light come on and 5 seconds...


It's either your battery or alternator have them tested. If your alternator is bad it wont charge the battery. If the battery is bad it won't hold the charge from the alternator. Good luck!
