Light is on and you can still start and drive it? then either something is defective or a bad wire. It can act up, but usually it won't start or could die while driving. It won't make the car run bad.

I got a lot of information about this security stuff from this website. 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

Not getting fuel into carb. have fuel at pressure test port put fuel into carb and engine starts.

Hi, that's not a carb, but OK. You have injectors at each cylinder port, right? Are they clicking when you crank the engine? If you can't tell, hold a long screwdriver to an injector and hold the other end to your ear while someone cranks the engine. Possible reasons for the injectors not clicking are the security system acting up, or maybe the crankshaft position sensor acting up.
Is the security light on the dash cluster lit up? Is the "check engine" light staying on after the bulb check?

I would take it to a local Auto Zone, or Advance Auto, they can run it through the diagnostic computer and see what codes are tripping, most likely it's going to be for a cylinder mis-fire, i would try making sure all the plugs are good, and check and see if all the plug wires are secured tightly.
