Security fuse 1999 pontiac bonneville


Need a little more info . Security fuse ????? Do you mean anti-theft ? The SECURITY light is lit on the instrument cluster ? Content theft or vehicle theft ?
Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) Description
Ignition Key
The ignition key for vehicles which are equipped with the PASS-Key® II system consists of the following components:
• A typical square ignition key blank
• A resistor pellet
The PASS-Key® II ignition key has the same mechanical key cuts as a non-PASS-Key® II ignition key. You can not service the key blank and resistor pellet separately. There are 15 different ignition key assemblies, each with a different key pellet resistance value.
When you service the PASS-Key® II system, obtain all ignition keys. Verify the proper key code values withJ 35628-A Interrogator.
Steering Column (Ignition) Lock Cylinder
The steering column (ignition) lock cylinder that is used with the PASS-Key® II system contains a set of electrical terminals. The terminals are used to contact the resistor in the ignition key.
The wire routing for the contacts inside the steering column is very critical. When you service the lock cylinder, maintain proper wire routing.
When you replace a steering column lock cylinder, make new keys. The new keys must match the following items:
• The PASS-Key® II code of the PASS-Key® II system
• The mechanical cut of the new steering column (ignition) lock cylinder.


Measure the resistance of the pellet on the key , go to radio shack an buy a resistor of same value an solder into wiring harness .

pulling fuse won't work , power's the PCM as well . Plus software in the PCM won't let it start if it doesn't see input signal from the Theft deterrent module .Take an get it fix right .

I changed my steering column but my past key turns everything on but it wont start the car do i need new ignition key


Yes, you need the correct resistor chip in the key for the PASS- key system to allow starting and the injectors to work. The computer will sense the correct resistance from the PASS- key and allow car to start.
PASS means Personal Auto Security System. Visit a locksmith who understands the PASS-key security system. Or the dealer. One of them should help you resolve it.

Security light comes on and car will not run. However when security light goes out car runs well. What is the problem?


you car is equipped with a pass key system, this year is most likely a pass key 2, but there is a small chance it is a pass key one, the pass key one has a pellet in the key ( a little black square in the shank of the key ) the pass key 2 has a resistor in in the ignition tumbler assembly ( that is the the key lock but it is called a key and tumbler assembly ) what is happening is the security system is not recognizing your key all the time in either case you will most likely have to replace the key and tumbler assembly, in order to do this you will need to have the system tested to know what the residence value is so you can get the proper key and tumbler set.

The pass key fault light blinking and my car won't started in my 95 chevy caprise does that mean its something wrong with the key?


did you get a new key made without the chip? The car will not run without the chip in the key. Could be a bad chip in the key itself. Get a replacement where they sell keys with a key chip identifier.
