IF YOU LEAVE THE IGNITION KEY ON FOR ABOUT AN HOUR,IT SHOULD COME OUT SECURITY LOCKOUT..YOU ALSO CAN TRY REMOVING FUSE IN UNDERHOOD FUSE BLOCK LABELLED "IOD" FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS AND PUTTING BACK IN..BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE PROBLEM WITH IMMOBILIZER OR POWERTRAIN CONTROLLER..YOU MAY NEED TO PUT VEHICLE ON A BATTERY CHARGER IF INTEND TO TRY LEAVING KEY ON..LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS

Is there anyway to bypass the immobolizer on my 2002 Nissan Altima?


This is quite an easy problem haha. I am currently doing my remote start for the same car right now and I know that issue you are having. After 1 or two full failed attempts to start your car the ECU knows not to turn on because it is locked. You have to put the key in the key cylindericon1.png, turn it to the on position but don\'t start the car, then count to 5 and then turn off the car and pull out the key for 5 seconds. Do this for a total of 3 times and the system resets. As for getting rid of the immobilizer that will be unlikely due to the fact that it sends info to the ECU to authorize it to turn on the car. However, you can bypass it like I did and then you will be able to use remote start and all the other good stuff. There are 3 types of ways to bypass the immobilizer but it will cost from 30 to 50 bucks. I got this from a Nissan thread so thanks to: Originally Posted by Anymanstupid-immobilizer-prevents-my-altima-2000-start.html#post3665018">viewpost.gif

Security system passlock


1st, did you use your original keys from your old column? If not the keys may be chipped in which case your truck wont start because of security system, MAKE SURE YOU USE YOUR KEYS IN THE NEW COLUMN..

2nd, if you did use your keys (Ignition switch) in your new column, then you may need to do a relearn on your system;

Attempt to start, when it fails, leave the key in the run position for 11-12 minutes (til the security light goes off).

Turn off for 30-45 seconds.

Repeat first step.

On the 4th attempt of this process, it should fire up.

It sounds pretty obvious that the security system is not recognizing your key and is shutting the fuel off to the engine. First try a different key (your Jeep originally came with two). If that does not work, or you do not have the second key, you will need to get your security system diagnosed to locate the source of the malfunction and/or program a new key.

It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

Security light came on last night while i was driving now my monte carlo wont start all the lights come on it just wont start


The SECURITY light is a common problem on GM cars. The key is not just a key, it also communicates with the ignition/lock cylinder, and then to the TDM (theft deterrent module) also known as the computer. When these parts dont communcate properly, the car thinks its being stolen and turns off the starter. The hard part is finding out which part is failing. Mechanics can use this to their advantage and change everything, running up a large bill. I have found that bypassing the system is the most cost effective method and you also never have to worry about the problem EVER again. Ive bypassed dozens of GM vehicles, and never had any issues after that. Here is a link that explains the problem and offers some solutions.

I got a lot of information about this security stuff from this website. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ When mine started acting up, i did a bypass on it. It was alot cheaper than a dealer mechanic. If you are looking to fix it correctly, I think taking it to the dealer is the best way to go, like said in above post.... Good luck
