2000 pontiac montana security system locked and it won't start. The information center on the van shows as follows; Low battery light, Then Security light, Then Low fuel light. Its full of gas. Help?


Does the security light come on when you turn the key to run ,Does it go off in a few min. The proper way to reset the anti-theft system would be to turn the key to the on position for 10 min. if the light goes out in that time ,turn the key off for a few seconds . Then try an start the vehicle . If light comes back on an won't start there is a hard fault . You mite at that point wan't to do a theft system by- pass . Also have your battery checked and or charging system . A low battery , a malfuctioning charging system may cause these type problems .

03 chevy express 1500. The ignition is totally unplugged an the van still runs. But if u drive it an let sit for 5 mins. It will not start for about 20-30 mins. The security light is on.


As far as not being able to shut it off...there is an ign 1 and ign 2 from your ign switch. If these are somehow connected together the alt will continue to run the motor despite the fact that the batt has been disconnected from the system. I would check for something that has been added (perhaps a relay for radio or towing) is not allowing the two different circuits to de-energize after turning off the key?
The not starting thing...there was a time when the solonoid on the starter was made with alum wire. Perhaps you have one of these? Once it cooled down it would start just fine. Or you could install some kind of heat shield. It might work? Or just get one made with copper wire.

99 mercury cougar wont crank no spark anti theft light flashing


a bad security system would restrict the ignition system from activating so the engine may be perfectly fine but until the security system give it the ok, its gonna sit. have someone take a look at the security system and see if they cant fix the system or deactivate it (what use is a security system if your car wont start right?)

My 2000 MPV gets stuck in park. The parking gear will not light up to indicate the van is in park. Once the van is running for about 20 mins or more the parking gear light will come on and I am able to...


it sounds like a shift lock solinoid ....this prevents the car from being shifted out of park when ur foot is not on the brake....u will have to bring this to a repair shop since the faulty part is located inside the paneling where ur shifter handle is

Someone attempted to steal my 1998 Savana Conversion van, I had the steering column replaced and now it still won't stay started, and a security light is on the dash board. Is there a fuel pump reset...


Hi, the security system has to learn the new key resistor in the new column. If you try to start it, leave the key on for 10 mins, the security light will go off. Turn the key off, try to start it again, and release the key. The light will come back on again. Wait another 10 mins, intill the light goes out again. (leaving the key on). This has to be done 3 times total of 30 mins. When the light goes out a 3rd time, the vehicle should start, and run. Remember to turn off the headlamps, heater, radio, etc... as they consume power, and you do not want to kill the battery. Good luck...Coop

Security light flashing and car won't start now


does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

1999 pontiac grand am alarm engadged and won't start or reset


turn the key on for at least 20 mins or so, the security light should stop flashing. This is very common for these cars. turning the key on and leaving it on for 20 mins resets the security system. When the "security system" on these cars activates, all it does is shut the electric signal to the fuel injectors off, the fuel pump still kicks on and you still have spark, but the injectors dont shoot fuel. If the turning on for 20 mins dont work, you will likely need a whole new ignition, and you take the inside out of yours and put it in the new one so you re-use your key. hope this helps
