You have to relearn the key cylinder. look for a theft or security light. i believe you need to crank car let go of key(leave it forward) observe theft or security light if light is on then wait, up to about ten minutes. when light goes off, turn key off, then forward but do not start, let go and observe light. if it goes off immediately, then it has programed. if not then wait the ten minutes or until light goes off. it may take a couple of times. main thing to remember is to only try to start car on first step, or you will have to start over.

Yes timing is everything with motors if the cylinder isn't firing at the right time all u are doing is filling the cylinder with raw fuel and dumping it into exhaust un burned it can eventually ruin you're catalytic converters also, get it professionally timed you're truck will run like a champ, unles u already caused damage.

Its possible the security system has been set off. The security light on the dash will stay on if this is the case. The cause can be the key tumbler if it is the security.

The door sensor needs adjusting. It may be loose.
Loosen the lock nut on the pushbutton sensor in the door frame.
Unscrew the sensor a little and re-tighten the lock nut.

System thelf light on car wont start 1996 chevy


Sounds like your security is staying on.Try locking the car with the remote keys then unlocking If that doesnt work lock car again and unlock it with key in passenger side door..These should solve your problems if not tell me what you got after doing those things..

Put new ignition in 2003 sunfire. engine wont stay running and theft lock symbol on in dash


HI.

Follow this step to keep running your sunfire.
1 - Be sure the battery is full charged.
2 - Is better if you put a battery charged
3 - Turn the key to run position and tray to start the car and leave with the key in run position,
With a watch let pass 10 minutes no less. you gonna see the security light flashing and stop flashing after 10 munites.
4 - After 10 munites turn the key to off position during 30 seconds, with watch on your hand, OK.
6-- After the 30 seconds try to star the car

I hope this solve your problem.
Please letme know.

Thank you for use fixya.
