My cadillac 04 cts wont start. Thinks its the scurtiy feature. Any1 have a idea


Is the security light lit ? Car an pad lock symbol . If any of these are lit it is the anti-theft system . Does the engine crank over but won't start an run ? The anti-theft system will allow the engine to crank but not start , disables fuel injectors . If the anti-theft light is lit there are DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the theft deterrent module an or the ECM .
Does anything happen when you turn the key to the start position ?

2004 mustang won't start because of anti theft system


Did you check the battery of the car (maybe loose cable)? but if it just happen suddenly, it might be your altenator that wasn't charging your battery. I think once there's enough power gone through the car then your anti-theft system should work as normal again.

I have a buick regal 1994 and sometimes it wont start/ I have to wait sometimes before it will start


Next time this happens and the car wont start, look all over the dash for a light that says SECURITY. Normally what happens is the anti theft system in older GM cars starts to fail and miscommunicates with itself. That little black chip in your key sends a signal to the ignition, and then the ignition sends it to the TDM (theft deterrent module) and then the TDM allows the starter to start. If any part is not doing its job correctly, the starter gets turned off to prevent theft. Your car thinks its getting stolen. Read all about it thru this link. Also offers some good DO IT YOURSELF options to fix this forever. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
