My 2001 silverado's Security Light is staying on. I don't have an owners manual but I was told my security system is not working. Is there a fuse for a simple fix or must I take it to the dealer?

You probably need a new key switch. If your keys are really worn, they may need to be replaced also. The security system checks the key to see if it is correct. If not correct, power is not turned on to fuel pump.

I changed the battery in my 2001 grand am ....now it won't start


mine does the same thing, but my security light flashes. I was told that it is the security system on the car not recognizing the key. The key I am using is the original key for the car though. I was told that a quick (but not so quick) fix is to open the door, put the key in, turn it on but don't start it.... set for roughly 10 minutes so the car will reset itself. It works everytime but is a pain in the ****. Was told the only way to completely fix the problem would be to put a new motor in it.

The security light came on my 2001 Chevrolet Express 3500 and stays on while driving. I don't even have a security system installed. Could this mean something else?


Yes you do have a security system. Its called passlock, and is more of an antitheft system than a security system. Actually you won't ever know you have it until someone tries to steal your vehicle or until it fails. Sounds like yours is failing. This link will help you understand the system and give you options to fix this yourself. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Anti theft system came on dash. shut the car down will not start. 2002 cadillac. i was told 30 differ sensor showed wrong. which sensor to start with.


The SECURITY light is located on the instrument panel cluster.

If the ignition is off and any door is open, the SECURITY light will flash, reminding you to arm the system. To arm the system, do the following:
1. Open the door.
2. Lock the door using the power door lock switch with the door open or the remote keyless entry transmitter. The SECURITY light should come on and stay on.
3. Close all the doors. The SECURITY light should go off within approximately 30 seconds. If a door or a trunk is opened without a key or a remote keyless entry transmitter, the horn will sound and the lamps will flash for about 30 seconds.

Also can check this and other details in the 2002 Cadillac Owners Manual (page 85 and next).

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

2001 chevy silverado 1500 headlights wont shut off


You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.

Security system not working as it used to


i read this on the subaru tech bulletin page
i had the same problem - apparently i had inadvertently put the system into "valet" mode
to get back to normal, unlock with remote - open drivers door - hold down the unlock button on your remote for 2-3 sec - the flashing light will go out and your system should be back to normal
it's too bad the manual doesn't supply information about activating and deactivating "valet" mode
good luck

Your keyless/security system may have been damaged by the spikes. But, assuming you've already checked all the fuses, I would start by having the alternator tested. I would also check the alternator wire connection to the power distribution center (pdc). It can loosen and cause different problems.

Good Luck!

that has something to do with the reprograming of your ingition key if you are having not starting problems i will recomend you to leave it alon but if you wnat to be in the safe side then call one of the mobile locksmiths guy or take it to them to see if the key has to be reprogamed, and try using only one single key for the ignition,
some time systems take a little be to reconigse a copi made key
