Car won't start - security system issue

After taking off the driver's side door panel to fix the window, the security light on the door wouldn't stop blinking and made a dinging noise, disconnected the light, and now car won't start at all. I guess this is so that the car won't start if it's been broken in to, but how can I fix it?

2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE security system wont let car start


first most GM OEM systems will need to recognize the key first and foremost ,to do that you will need to roll window down on driver door,turn the key to the run position and with engine NOT running leave the key on for 10 minutes exactly ..then turn ignition off then try to start engine. if original system is working engine should start normally

Mega problems!


You need a dealer to fix this or a very good outside repair shop, I will bet most won't touch the job, it is way beyond a do it yourself repair. You might get it apart but you will never get it set up right to work properly. You absolutely need a factory service manual to work on these doors. Problems with these door make a professional tech want to go home. I am just being honest here, this is based on my 35 years of dealer experience.

Anti theft light won't go out


There are 2 things to try:
1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system.
2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.

I had a fuel pump replaced and after the job was done my battery was dead so It was taken out and charged up now my anti-theft light and the car won't start,days' later I came out turned the key it...


is the security light still on? a quick test is to remove the negative terminal on the battery for 10 minutes. reconnect and see if car starts without the security light on.
if the light remains on turn the key to ON without starting engine and leave it for 10-15 min until light goes out and then start the car, it should then stay running when you open the door.
the late 90's into 2000's GMs have issues with their security systems acting up, unfortunately your car is one of the ones it affects.there is no way to disable the system because it is part of the ECM
always unlock driver door first when using the key, there is actually a sensor that the computer reads, if the door is unlocked without a key such as using a slim jim or coat hanger the system will trigger a no start and the light will be on.

The battery died on my 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo and after the first time I jumped it and drove it around a little to try and charge the battery, the Security light came on. After I parked it and turned it...


Im pretty knowledgable in the whole SECURITY light issue... I dont think this could cause the door lock to not work correctly, but anything is possible. Newer cars are wound up pretty tight. Here is a link to help understand how the security works.

I'd go ahead and do a "security relearn" on you car. It might help if that is what caused the door issue.
Turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) Turn back your key to regular position and check the door lock. May have to do this process 3x

2005 equinox left front window some times will go up and down , however most times times it seems to stick won't go up or down unless you help it to start moving. Should you stop it half way it seems to...


I have a similar problem with the same window. The window doesn't stop moving but it tilts forward until it won't close properly leaving a 1 inch gap between the top left corner of the window and the door frame from the perspective of sitting in the drivers seat. I had the motor and regulator replaced but to no avail.
I took off the door panel, everything looked fine. Took off all the weather strips and the driver side mirror. Behind the mirror there is the top portion of the metal guide the edge of the window rides up and down. it was partially cracked and bulged out beneath the crack. I gently pounded it back in and cleaned out the guides on both sides with window cleaner and WD-40. The issue will not be completely fixed until I replace the metal guide but it runs much smoother now.

Drivers door panel removal


The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.
