There is a problem detected within the security system by the security module. Try locking and unlocking the door with the key fob to reset the system. Sometimes locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key will reset the system as well. If still no luck, try the spare key to see if the security system accepts it

The remote needs to work if the vehicle originally came with the remote from the factory. It gives off a signal to the ring around the ignition switch to deactivate the alarm.

The van will start and run for about 2 seconds and quit i changed fuel pump,filter,distubitor,cam and crank sensors and module


Gm vehicles have been known to have faulty anti theft security systems. One of the symtoms of this is when your vehicle starts for 1-5 seconds and then stalls. A good way to know if this is the problem is when you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY. If you see this light flashing or on solid, this explains the van not starting.

Circuit board is completely blown and van will start but immediately stalls


This sounds like the anti theft security is not getting the info that it needs to allow the van to run. If the dash is messed up, then it might be effecting the way the computer receives the security info and is not allowing it to start. Believe it or not, your key is constantly sending a signal thru your ignition to your Theft deterrent module which ALLOWS your van to stay running. If this has been interupted, the van goes into anti theft mode. Here is a link on how the system works and some Solutions that might get you going again. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Anti theft system. You might have a door lock causing the anti theft system to kick in. (thinking its being stolen.)
