Changed ignition switch now security light stays on and truck starts and kills

You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.

Truck will not crank. Previous owner installed crappy kill switch that initially started the problem.I by pass it and truck was running fine. Till the a ground cable came loose on the battery. There's...

It would be the ignition or those ignition wires because of the kill switch being poorly installed, id try tracing wires first and replace anything thats been cut/spliced into. if not change the ignition

My car won't start and the security light is on..I didn't know I had security on my car..also, the battery light is on..can you help me?

The battery light is on because the car isn't running. The problem is with the security system. Is the light flashing? If it is, leave the key on for 10 minutes until it stops flashing and then it should start.

I just put a new ignition in it's a in dash cylinder security light is flashing, and the car will not start

try turning the key on and letting it flash for 15-20 minutes... it should stop and then you can start it. I usually put a battery on a jumper cable so it does not kill yours while doing that. (just a battery you don't need to jump to a running car)

Security light flashing and it kills the car - can not start

Till u can get it to the auto shop, turn everything off turn your key like you are going to start it when it gets in the start spot let it go, then wait 13 mins dont touch nuttin. after waiting 13 mins turn the key in the off position, then start it and it will start right up so far i have had to do this twice and it works every time. It has something to do with the Security system I have an appointment monday to have chevy look at it and find out what it is.

2003 Pontiac Grand AM suddenly won't start and security light is flashing on the dash board. All systems are OK such as Battery new, fuel ok and ignition starting system ok. Looks like some anti-theft...

Check to see if you have a computer chip on your key. Chances are that the computer chip or the reader in the ignition keyhole is not reading it properly. If you leave the key on, engine off, for 15-20min. that security will reset and the light will go off. Turn key off and now try to start engine.
