Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

No start condition. Light on dash indicates a security issue

Won't start condition. Light on dash shows a key with a line through it. A local dealership said there is a problem with the security system. Can a corroded battery terminal cause this or what else should I look at.

Reset security alarm


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

98 cherokee turns over but won't start no power to wiring at fuel pump an on the dash ther is a orange key with a line throw it what does it mean


This indicator light is related to the vehicle security system, which checks that the key you are using is authentic. If it is flashing, you have a key with no chip in it, a bad ring antenna, or other fault in the security system.
Instructions
    • 1Turn the ignition switch off.
    • 2Insert the key into the driver's side door.
    • 3Turn the key clockwise to lock it.
    • 4Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock it. The alarm system recognizes an authorized key was used and the system resets.
      As a side note if that doesnt work try it in the rear hatch. good luck hope this helped.

2003 ford expedition won't start and theft light blinking


Hi

This typically indicates an issue with your VSM (Vehicle Security Module) which is located HIGH UP in the PASSENGER KICK PANEL... Or your key not being recognized by the VSM.

Try your spare key. Otherwise it's going to need a trip/tow to the dealer, as there is not a bypass that will allow the vehicle to start.

Thanks

Friday while driving the dashboard gauges stopped working except the speedometer and RPMs. No air, no power locks or truck release. Also all the indicator lights you see when the key is on the on position...


It sounds like the anti-theft security system is engaged, this is keeping your vehicle from starting. I would recommend calling a local dealer where you are and ask them to help you. Hope this helps.

How do I program my key for my 2006 Chevy Impala?


Add Duplicate Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)
1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within fifteen seconds, insert the new key
and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming
the key into the vehicle.
Originate New Master Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)

1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position.
The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.
2. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back to the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
3. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back on the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
4. After the security light has gone off the third time, the key has been programmed
into the vehicle’s computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the
previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the
vehicle’s computer.
