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). 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.

Installed ignition on 2003 sunfire, how do i reset security system


did you reuse the same pass lock sensor and key lock tumbler? if so the security system shouldn't have to be reset. if you replaced either lock cylinder or pass lock sensor then you have to turn the key to the start position and then to the run position and leave the key on for about ten minutes and wait for the security light to stop flashing. once the light stops flashing do the same process again. it may take up to three times to get the key code encrypted into the BCM. on the third time after the light stops flashing the car should start, if not then you may have another problem.

I have a 2000 chevy vernture warner bros edition i just hooked up a new cd player in my van and now it wont start and the security light is flashing can someone help me plz


was the factory's stereo what you removed? if so it has set a security code. you can try resetting the security system. STEP ONE: turn key to start position and let it come back to run position. STEP TWO: let the key stay on in the run position until the security light stops flashing.STEP THREE: once the light quits flashing turn key off then repeat steps one and two again. note: it may take up to 30 minutes to complete the reset process, after third time the van should start if not you may have to take it to the dealer to have the BCM reprogrammed.

Car doesnt start immeditately. security light comes on. once security light goes out car starts. Why?


it is detecting a problem....could be a dirty key or bad chip in the key....try this.....set the alarm by locking the door using the power lock switch and then close the door...the security light should come on steady for about 2 minutes and then go out.....the alarm is armed at this point.....you can unlock the drivers door using the key to reset the alarm.....if you do this with the windows down you can open the door from the inside to set the alarm off and see if it works properly by flashing lights and horn....after you trigger the alarm you will have to reset it by using the key on the drivers door....

Security Light comes on


Disable the passlock permanently. It is not as hard as it seems. The dash assembly comes out easily and underneath the steering column there is a metal plate held in with some bolts that needs to come off. Once you get the bolt off there will be (3) wires running up the column (yellow, black and white) these will be tied or taped together. They are the only group of three coming up the steering column. START the car (vital to do this) and while the car is running snip the yellow wire in two. Tape the ends and put everything back together. Problem solved. I did this 10 months ago and have never had the problem again. I did 3 months of research finding out what a sorry system the Passlock is. The security orange or yellow dashlight will stay on but this does not affect anything.
