Check for corroded wires. The wiring harness starts under the battery tray and sometimes the battery leaks acid on the connector and corrodes it. If the connector looks good and the bulbs are good then more than likely the harness is rubbing between the washer bottle and the body creating an open or short to ground in either the pink wire or the blue wire to the headlights.

I had a problem with that before on my 2001 Sunfire. It was an issue with the sensor that tells the alarm system that the trunk is open. Make sure the trunk is closed and the trunk wiring is OK.

Hello and welcome to Fixya!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive batter connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

Please do keep me posted on the progress. I'll be glad to help you out. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Security system is locked out, will not let use start van


If the headlights are flashing, the alarm system is factory installed. Inserting the key into the driver door lock and turning to the left then back to the right is supposed to disarm it. If the parking lights are blinking,, the alarm is an aftermarket add on, and there should be a disarm button under the dash on the driver side. If it' an aftermarket alarm, you should be able to have it removed. There is a way to bypass the factory alarm. There is a wiring harness in the driver's door. You will have to remove the door panel to find it. The wire is dark green and purple. Splice into that wire and ground it to the chassis and the alarm should no longer work.

Having some problems with electrical. head lights are flashing on and off all night long. and passenger head light is out. thought it might be the bulb but have seen it come back on


If you have an alarm installed try removing the in line fuse from the power line to the alarm. This is a common error when an after market alarm has faulted out.
