1998 s-10 security light


If the security light is hot or flashing when the key is in the on position, most likely the ignition key tumbler housing has failed.

You can try resetting the pass code by turning the ignition switch to the on position (do not crank or start the engine). Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes. Turn the key to the off position, wait 5 seconds and turn the key to the on position again and leave it on for 10 more minutes. Cycle the key to the off position again for 5 seconds the back on for a final 10 minutes. Once the final 10 minutes is complete, turn to the off position again, wait 5 seconds and now turn the ignition on and to the start position. The pass code has now been reset and it should start. If the reset does not work you will have to change the ignition key tumbler housing that contains the key code resistor.
Good luck

If you have a 1997 pontiac firebird and it wont start because the security light keeps coming on what is the problem?


could be a security relean.
•Insure that the battery is fully charged.
•Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the CRANK position attempting to start the vehicle. The vehicle will start and then stall.
•Leave the ignition switch in the ON position while observing the security indicator.
•When the security indicator turns off, which can take up to 10 minutes, turn the ignition switch off. Wait 10 seconds.
The BCM and the PCM will learn the new code on the next start attempt.

I have and oldsmobile 2000 intrigue. i changed the computer and now it wont crank when the key is turned and also the security light is flashing constantly how do i reconcile the new computer to the car?


There is a simple procedure for this.
First of all (and VERY IMPORTANT) is to connect the vehicle to a battery charger. Leave the battery charger on during this entire process.
This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes . Make sure the battery is fully charged before proceeding.
  1. Turn the ignition switch off.
  2. Turn the ignition switch all the way from the off to the start position, then leave it in the on position.
NOTE: The engine will not crank.

  1. The SECURITY will come on and stay on for at least 10 minutes . When it goes out, proceed to step 4.
  2. Turn the ignition switch off for five seconds .
  3. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a second time.
  4. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a third time.
  5. Turn the ignition switch off.
  6. Turn the ignition switch all the way to the start position. The engine should now start.

2001 chevy venture security light on wont start


It may be as simple as trying a different key but the security systems on gm vehicles have had problems with the ignition cylinders going bad and preventing the car from starting.

99 Grand am Security light comes on every time and car wont start


you cant disable the unit.. it is integral with the engines computer.. turn the key to the on position and leave it for 10 minutes.. the security light should stop flashing in 10 minutes or so , when it does , start the vehicle.. if it is a recurring problem , replace the ignition lock cylinder as it is a common problem with these cars.

TRY THIS RESET FOR THE SECURITY SYSTEM.

PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
