That is a light to let you now there is a problem with the anti-theft system. If it is on all the time a fault has been detected. The car should continue to start but may not start if the battery is disconnect, goes dead, or is replaced.

If it comes on when you start the car and then goes out there is no problem. This is a normal bulb check.

if it is blinking and the vehicle will not start than the anti-theft system is armed and needs to be relearned.

    If you replaced your key with a non GM key there is a chance that you need to get the correct passlock key from your dealer in order to make that light go out and stay out. there could also be an issue with one of your key fobs that unlock lock and or start the car

Hi my name is Mike I have a 2002 x5 and in the dash board there was 4 little green lights on on bottom right now I got one red one and one yellow one what does it mean thx lots

Hi Mike. The lights are the service maintenance lights. When an oil service or inspection service is performed the lights should be reset to all green. Over time the lights will go from all green lights and disappear until a yellow light comes on. The yellow means the next service is due. The red means over due.

Yellow engine light

Yellow engine light on the dash board of Toyota Camry is the indication of low oil in car.----------- Get the oil checked and refilled.Driving the car with low oil is not advisable.------------- There is a reset procedure to stop this yellow light on dash.In some cases this helps ,but in some cases the oil needs to be refilled to stop this yellow light.------------- I will mention the reset procedure as follows:-- Turn on the ignition switch, set the mileometer reading to miles not trip meter, turn off the ignition fully, press the button to reset the trip meter and keep it pressed down as you turn on the ignition key to key on engine off, keep it pressed down for about 15 seconds and then the light will be reset. -------------- Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

1998 achiva 3.00 car will start after running and turn off key. car will not start the sericty light turn on and will not start

Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent system. The system is armed once the key is removed from the ignition. Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is turned with a valid key. If a correct key is not used, fuel is disabled.
You may also want to check the fuse or circuit breaker, and see your Oldsmobile retailer for serviceif you get it started.

You can disable the security! if you like. take off the cover to the steering column. look on the passengers side of the column and you will see 3 small 20 gauge wires, yellow, white, and black. cut the yellow wire. problem solved! security is now disabled. your security light on the dash will stay on all the time now when running but isnt that better than paying hunderds of dollars for maybe nothing? I know this works cause i had to do it on my 97 achieva. Good luck
