Painting a Security Door. Can you please read our comments below for more information? Thx !

Our security door is starting to rust a teeny bit at corners where some of the bars meet. It currently has a glossy sheen. We want to paint it. However, we are not sure whether to: (1) Lightly sand the entire door, then use a universal bonding primer, followed by Rustoleum spray can paint. OR-- (2) Should we use a Deglosser instead of sanding? Then spray with the final paint color? Or MUST we prime first, then paint? Does Rustoleum have a PAINT PLUS PRIMER IN A SPRAY CAN? If so, we sure can't locate it anywhere. Any help you can offer is surely appreciated. BLESSINGS TO YOU !!

I don't think you can hurt it by sealing it from the outside. Your issue is the inside of the frame. The pillar is not airtight. Most of what you can use will smell for years if you spray WD 40 inside to displace moisture.
You might consider taking it to All-American car franchises or equivalent. They drill and plug body areas routinely to spray inside door panels,tailgates,etc. It would inhibite rust and unless you actually replace the metal when you want to paint the car, theres not much else you can hope to do.

SOURCE: I have a 1993 buick lesabre custom that has flaking paint

if you have sanded the areas with 400 grit sandpaper already, the next thing you want to do is move up to a higher grit paper like 800 and them 1000 and smooth out the area. After that, wet sand the area until it is smooth and feathered. Wipe the area down with a dry cloth. Luckily, the primer just smoothed out, but if not, apply a thin coat and allow to dry. Last, apply the basecoat, let it sit 24 hours, wet sand it, clean the area, and then clear it.

Security system


These are easy systems. Lock down the truck. Open the door with the key. Doesn't work on the drivers side, lock it, unlock the passenger side, then reach in to unlock the drivers side. Still no start? look under the driver side for an after market security system. Remove it and repair wires as you go. Still no start after this, Have the codes read. Could be both door latches are bad or the BCM?security.

Anti theft system came on dash. shut the car down will not start. 2002 cadillac. i was told 30 differ sensor showed wrong. which sensor to start with.


The SECURITY light is located on the instrument panel cluster.

If the ignition is off and any door is open, the SECURITY light will flash, reminding you to arm the system. To arm the system, do the following:
1. Open the door.
2. Lock the door using the power door lock switch with the door open or the remote keyless entry transmitter. The SECURITY light should come on and stay on.
3. Close all the doors. The SECURITY light should go off within approximately 30 seconds. If a door or a trunk is opened without a key or a remote keyless entry transmitter, the horn will sound and the lamps will flash for about 30 seconds.

Also can check this and other details in the 2002 Cadillac Owners Manual (page 85 and next).

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

I think you have to have the key in the ignition, and set to "ON" with the driver door open and holding the unlock button down for several seconds. At least that works on my Forester.

1995 Buick Riviera SC: traction and the security light


traction switch is located next to drivers left knee on bottom of dash....you should be able to turn off the traction light there by just turning on the traction control.....the security light is telling you that there is a problem with your security system....could just need a new key with a new computer chip....make sure the key is clean and dry when using so it can read the chip....the security light comes on whenever your start the car and stays on for approximatley 2 minutes and then should go out....it is just a reminder....try this and see if it works....lock the door using the power switch on door.....close door and see if the security light comes on....watch and it should go out after about 2 minutes...if it does then your alarm is activated and working....to disarm you need to unlock the driver door with the key...anything else will set the alarm off and the lights will start flashing and the horn honking...after you set the alarm off you will always have to use the key to unlock the drivers door to turn off the alarm and reset the security system.

"security' sign on dash...cannot start my car


I have had problems with this as well, and unlocking the driver door made it worse by setting the alarm off. I found out that unlocking the rear hatch with your key will disarm the security system all together

94 Chevy Camaro-won't start


I would say you would have to take off the inside door panel and remove the mechanism and security switch to see why it is jammed in a locked position, even though you have unlocked the door the electric switch {maybe rusted} is still signalling a lock position, the switch may be located on the actual key barrel, but same check to see why its not moving into an unlock position.
hope this helps.

2006 Honda odyssey. Security alarm activates randomly. How do I prevent it?


Hi,

I am assuming that your Odyssey has a factory installed alarm system. If yes, then it is a basic door and ignition sensor to trigger and therefore should have no false trigerring. If it activates (with no) randomly even when not triggerred, then it can only be further assumed that door locking/sensor mechanism is getting false readings. Any thing out of the ordinary with the doors? (especially driver's side passenger doors).

You may want to check the electrical connection of the power sliding doors (Junction Switches). Like most door switches, they may be misaligned, worn out, corroded or simply deteriorated. Being an electrical device, moisture, rust, dust, grime and dirt may affect its performance.

If that does not correct the problem, you may want to check fuse #13 (the manual says #5) for continuity. There are some instances that remove and reinstall resets the alarm.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
