    ovious that it is a security system problem......why does it not stay cleared

  • jarnold5019 May 26, 2009

    I now think that the repair shop has firing order wrong.From the coil pack wire # 1 is going to # 2 plug,# 4 to plug # 3,# 6 to # 5 plug,# 3 to # 4 plug,2 to # 1 plug,5 to # 6 plug.Should not the wire numbers match ? I think it is out of time,it back fires when you try to start it with some smoke out of the exhaust..........thanks

Sounds like a problem with your security system. Do you have the stock alarm that came with the car or did you upgrade your alarm at sometime?

    Well my question is do you have a after market alarm or original, when I know that I can explain more to you about why this is happening and not wanting to clear but I do not want to give you the wrong information

    Yes, the wiring is wrong numbers go to numbers which if it is ran like that can make your timing go out of whack. I am sorry I should have thought about that but the alarm was the first thing to come to mind. Change the firing order then try to run it and let me know please

Theft mode light

Has anyone changed the part of the ignition switch that reads the key value and sends it to the anti-theft module, it this part malfunctions it will lock you out, and you will be unable to start the car, they are a known fault for all GM lines with factory anti-theft systems, it is part of the ignition switch, but I believe that it alone can be replaced, call your local dealer and ask about the sensor for the VATS key in the ignition, they should know what the part is formally called.

Car stalls out, everything quits and you have to wait about 15 minutes until it can be started again. Also overheats; water is going somewhere but we don't know. The anti theft light keeps coming on.

The antitheft light and the stalling problem are likely related. It sounds like you have a bad ignition lock cylinder. Check the lower intake gaskets for the antifreeze.
