The security light icon 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 misinterprets 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.

I have a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4L that wont start. I have done fuel pressure test 50-55 psi and plugs have good spark. However when done light test on injectors there is no response so there is no pulse....


Is the security light staying on ?
Usually the engine will not crank and you have no power to the fuel pump if the security system is disabling the car.
No injector pulse but spark would point to the computer since both use input from the crank and cam sensors.

If the security light is on, the anti-theft system may have immobilised the fuel pump from working. Different systems have their own way to immobilise the starting or ignition circuits. You need to check if that is a problem, might check with the dealer if it is a factory installed security system.

2001 chevy silverado 1500 headlights wont shut off


You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.

Hey have you recently changed your head unit. I have a 2000 s10 2.2 and i recently hardwired my pioneer 4000ub head unit and the security light came on upon not starting. every time you try to start the car while the security light is on it will add 10 minutes onto your time. For the security light not to come on you need to check your wiring. just remember dont keep trying becuase it wont work!!! find the problem and fix it.
