That light is the passlock light. I had the same problem on my 06 Colorado. Depending on your vehicle you will have to find out what color the wire going to it is when you get it to crank leave it running and you can cut the wire. The light will stay on but you won't have to worry about it anymore. That's what I did. I cut my wire last year and haven't had a problem with it. Your wire color might be orange and it will be a 14 gauge wire

Service immobilier light on car died out


If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

Since you were in an accident it could be a safety related issue...such as a steering box fault. Your owners manual has some information in it on the immoblizer.

2007 saturn sky won't start


Anyone that runs into this needs to:
Turn the key as if cranking the engine.
Allow the key to return to the run position and LEAVE IT THERE for at least 10 minutes.
Turn off key.
Repeat two more times, or until the car cranks and runs.

I have seen this take up to 6 attempts, but most likely you will only need to make 3 cycles.
