What Year ? The engine turns over but won't start ? Is this the problem SECURITY light lit or flashing ? If SECURITY light is on the PCM/ECM - engine computer disables the fuel injectors ,so it won't start . If the SECURITY light is on there is codes stored in the PCM/ECM or the theft deterrent module . Your husband messed with something he shouldn't have .

How to you reset starting disabel security system


If you leave the key in the "ON" position for 10-15 minutes it should re-set the security system, when the security light goes off you should be able to start the vehicle. If this is a persistent problem you will probably have to change out the exciter ring that is on the end of the ignition lock cylinder. Your local GM dealer sells a kit that comes with a new lock cylinder with exciter ring and everything, but you only need to have the exciter ring changed. This is the part that reads the chip in the key and sends the information to the computer.

If the truck runs, I would say its a bulb.
If the truck won't start, look at the fuse for the ECM.

Replaced ignition module now it won't run at all


After changing the ignition module, you may have broken the communication between all the components in the anti theft security system. This is common on GM antitheft systems. Check out this link for how it works and solutions to security problems. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

You need to take it to the dealer. One of the system computers is failing. I do not know that model but it could be either the body computer or dash computer. Good Luck.

94 vette won't start,bat good,have org. key,fuses ok,high beam light on lights off,lcd cluster won't light up?


Disconect the battery and ECM for FOUR DAYS then reconect the ECM and BATTERY. Let it sit for another four days without turning anything on. It should start but will run rough for about 200 miles as the ECM relearns the system. I had the same issue and that is what fixed it.
