SOURCE: wont start security light stays on

My girlfriend had the same problem, so we took it to the local dealer in Costa Mesa, CA and were told she needed a new engine to the tune of 5K. We decided to take it to our local mechanic and he discovered that the “ignition control box”, which apparently has the antitheft controls too and shuts the flow of gas to the engine because it thinks its being stolen when it malfunctions, was causing the starting problem. Once, the box was replaced it worked fine. Because the IBC controls antitheft, it will need to be “reprogrammed” be someone that has access to the proper equipment or the dealer. I think the whole thing was about $800 - $900. Sure beats $5,000

Hope this helps,

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.

it would have been helpful if you stated the year of the car but it sounds to me like it is the fuel filter or the fuel pump

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad

I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

My 2000 buick lesabre was low on oil am guessing because it started to knock so i stop to the gas station n order 3qtz of oil and put them in at home and then when i cutted my car off n started it back up...

sorry but sounds fatal. bearings are siezed therefore battery voltage isnt enough to rotate the engine. THIS IS BAD. new bearings alone wont fix...probably less expensive to replace engine with a warrantied salvage engine.

Car ran like a dream.parked,went to restart turned over but no fuel

The security system is supposed to disable the starter and fuel system. So if the engine cranks, and the security light goes off, its probably not a security problem.
You would need to check the pump relay to see if it has power and a ground signal from the computer. You may need a wiring diagram to be able to check the circuits.

Sounds like your battery died and the alternator stop charging the battery?
Did you try to restart the engine?
