My 97 Cadillac deville won't start, my security light is not on, could that be the thef sistem

Yes, that's what the security light is for. It should turn on briefly with the key to on, and then go out. Normally it is only activated, disabling the car, when the light stays on or is flashing. So generally, if the light is not on, it shouldn't be disabling the car. But if it doesn't turn on at all with key on, you may need to have it checked.

Anit theft prevents car from starting

key less entry system goes thru key decoder.common and likely problem is key tumbler assy. wires (small like speaker wires) breaks off key tumbler which will cause security light to flash or stay on. tilt whell up or down, sometimes vehicle wires to tumbler will touch enough to start vehicle. if so, vehicle can be driven to repair shop for repair. est for complete service.. aprox 350.00

My 99 ford ranger died while driving and now will not start. Thef light in dash keeps flashing


this may be because the injection sensor sensing the amount of fuel going in may be failed. so it might stopped the fuel going inside the cylinder. so when you start the engine it turns over but fuel is not been injected inside the cyclinder so no firing is taking place. the light is the warning light which keeps on flickering.

2. may be there is a bloack in the fule injectors which blocks the fuel to enter the cylinder.

so try servising the injection sensing unit and injectors too.

Car shuts off randomly and security light flashes

Looks like the anti-thef in the key barel arms itself, it immobilize the vehicule for 5 to 10 minutes has you are saying.

If you have a remote starter, disconnect the immobilizer bypass just in case its defective if not they could have putted a resistance to bypass it permanently if its the case verify that it is well connected.

If not you probably have a problem with the key barrel. Since it is probably sending the signal to the anti-theft intermittently.
