The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it gets worse till the car won't start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue with the same system.

Camaro runs great sometimes and sometimes nothing


Hi, this can be caused by an issue with passkey. Do you have a resistor pellet in your ignition key? Does the security light stay on when the engine fails to start? If yes, I recommend you bypsss passkey by cutting the wires and installing a resistor of the key's value at the bcm to fake it into believing the correct key is in the ignition.

1999 alero security light is on but the car start and runs fine. How do I turn it off?


This is normally 1 of 2 things. First, sometimes people bypass these systems in a cheap way. I've heard of people cutting wires and the security light stays on. This is not really a problem until you try to sell your car. Nobody wise will buy a car with a security light on. 2nd, the system might just be beginning to fail. The security light is controled by the antitheft system. So by it turning on, might indicate future problems. Here is a link that explains the system.

Gmc jimmy 2000 will crank but will not start what could be the promblem


does the word security stays flashing after you crank the engine? if it does vehicle has a problem with the passlock 2 system which is a factory installed anti-theft system. when faulty which is too common on those year GM models, vehicle will start and run for 2 or 3 seconds and die out. follow this procedure: 1) locate yellow 20ga. wire running out of steering column which will run along with heavier gauge wires. correct wire will be thin compared to the main ignition wires. 2) cut wire and connect an in line toggle switch and leave in on position. 3) put key in ignition and move forward and leave it that way for approximate 15 min. or until security light goes out. 4) as soon as light goes out vehicle should start. if it does not crank engine again until it starts. 5). when engine starts flip toggle switch to the off position then security light will come on. done. passlock system is bypassed. security light will stay on constant but vehicle will no longer leave you stranded.

Sometimes my security light will stay on intermittently and my 98 s-10 wont start. after sitting for awhile it will start right up and light goes out. is there a way to disable the security feature?


Hi there,

It is most likely a problem with a sensor in the steering column near the ignition switch. Remove the column cover find the yellow wire and a orange/black wire and cut them. On the body side (not the sensor side) of the cut wires connect the Yellow and orange/black wire with a 2200 ohm resistor between them. This disables the anti-theft system but allows the vehicle to start and run with out it.

Hope this helps!

2006 pontiac torrent shut down car will just crank, not start


The factory alarm is not to be tampered with as you can reset it but not disconnect it as it's part of the main fuel injection system. Do you have the right key? Just because it turns and cranks doesn't mean it has the right code. the security light off with the key on ut not cranking? If it stays on you do have a security problem. The system can be reset ( if the battery is good, and hot. Trun the key to crank and letgo the security light will but on or blinking . Leave the key on till the light goes out (around 15 minutes. Once it's out turn the key off then back on and the security light will be back on again. again wait till it goes out turn off then on again till the light goes out. Now turn the key off wait a few seconds trun it on and crank the engine. If it starts then it's reset. Sometimes I've had to do this more than three times to get it to reconize the key as the right one. rember a store cut key won't ever work as it doesnt have the (brain in it the the factory key does. Lets say your wrong, about the security system. The fuel pumps go bad like crazy and its thier season to fail. They fail quicker if you $5 the car alot. (runing on empty) Was the check engine light on as it ran the last time it was running? If so the codes need to be retieved and repaired. A scanner will find the security enabled on too.

My 2002 Grand am is have a passlock problem. The


I discovered the hard way- ($85.00 later) Step 1: turn key to "on" position. step 2: open driver door. (security light should be flashing on and off) step 3: wait ten minutes with key in "on position and driver door open. step 4: when 10 minutes is up-(youll know-because security light will have stoped flashing after 10 minutes) close driver door ,turn key to "off" position, then turn key "on" to start. drives me crazy!! I have to do it to mine sometimes 2-5 times a day! GM doesnt have a fuel reset button etc. like fords do.
