Security light issues. How to bypass it or shut it off altogether.


The warning light will keep coming on until you deal with the cause. So you either fix the problem or have the warning continue to display and potentially have another problem develop which will stop you starting the car.

Answering this 2014 question in case some else has this problem. Most likely the relay is malfuntioning and needs to be replaced. The relay is located in the engine compartment behind the battery. Use your owners manual for addition information if you can no longer read the diagram under the cover. If you dont have your manual, you can DL free here 2009 KIA Spectra Owner Manual 291 pages

Thinking you have a pass lock problem. In the ignition key and tumbler,
all I can do is send you to the dealer ,watch the security light,it's actions will help diagnose the
trouble . My money is on the Ign. switch

Vehicle wont crank replaced starter acts like no power to starter


This may be due to the antitheft system. This is actually pretty common on GM cars. Try to start your car, when it doesn't start, look for a light on the dash that says "security" out has a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If you see this, the antitheft is the problem. Go to this link, has some trouble shooting and antitheft security fixes. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

The security comes on and eventually the car won't start. The manual stated that it is the passlock. The security message will blink. When it stops blinking, the car will start.


There is a sensor on the back side of the tumblers in your ignition switch. This is the pass key sensor. Its bad. Have your switch replaced. Don't let anyone try to trouble shoot this. I have had to replace about 125 of these and they always crank and run afterward. Hope this helps. Good luck.
