I suggest you to get rid of security completely, like I did. There is a detailed write-up here: http://newrockies.com/vatsbypass. This was the only way I was able to save my Park Avenue.

Sometimes after I put my 2000 Buick Regal LS in Park and turn off the engine the ignition switch not the key gets stuck in the on and acc position. What causes this to happen?


Replace ignition switch (the tumbler portion) seems like its hanging up, and you shouldn't be able to remove the keys unless the switch is off.The park safety switch possibly. This switch tells the vehicle its in Park. Hope this helps.

2000 buick century ignition stuck on


Hi David I'm glad to help!

David I've found from time to time an Ignition switch will stick because the tumblers freeze. If you in fact have a tumbler and key set-up here a way that usually works but not always. Remove the key an spray lubricant into the key hole, then replace the key and using a small hammer tap on the end of the key while turning it off. Once you get it to move you'll need to replace the tumbler and housing assembly. NOTE: If you have a WIN Module set-up then remove the negative battery cable for 20 seconds then reconnect it and see if it works properly. This is only if you have the Module and key set-up, this has nothing to do with the key and tumbler. Hope this helps and have an awesome day David.

My chevy tahoe will not start and the security system light is on on the dashboard


If the light is flashing it may be an issue with the passlock sensor.Here is a process you can try to reset the passlock. If this process does not work you may need to replace the ignition tumbler and passlock.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

My grand am turns over, but wont start. I was low on gas, but have added 4 gallons since then. still won't start! what could it be?


no it will not start because it is a passlock problem with this car... your security will blink and you have to leave the car in the start position with the key in for 10 min until the security light stops flashing, turn the car off and then restart it and it should work , till next time it happens, which by the way , with mine it was like 2 -3 times a week, finally i got tired of this and wen to a mechanic friend who disabled the passlock system , best decision i ever made, cost me 40.00, unlike the 500 i was quoted to change the ignition module from dealer... so do not waste your money it willl not fix this problem i have heard anyway.... so good luck
