It starts with the security light and then gets worse till the car won't start anymore. The security system (VATS/Passkey) installed on these GM cars is anti-owner more than an anti-theft. There are 3 parts involved: 1) The chip-key 2) The lock cylinder 3) The TDM (aka the brain of the system) if any of these parts fails or is even slightly malfunctioning, the car stays stuck where you are and you only get a dealer asking you about 1,000$ to fix it. And all the 3 parts have a quite short lifespan. Way too many people got in this situation (including myself). I don't recommend any partial solution or any used parts as it would happen again way too soon to be acceptable and if it happens 100 miles from home (like it happened to me....) it's a big burden. I finally made it to save my beloved 94 Park Avenue (with the same system that is installed in your car) with a solution that I found on the internet and that bypasses the entire factory security system, all 3 pieces altogether and you can even remove the TDM at the end and use 99c keys without chip. The product I used is at http://newrockies.com and is still working perfectly after 5 years. Don't go to the dealer!

My check engine light keeps coming on and everytime we check the computer it keeps saying the same thing: random misfire. is there a reason why this keeps happening?


Possibly there is a vacuum leak into the intake manifold downstream of the throttle body. This is unmetered or unsensed air that the computer doesn't know about. This air is leaning out the fuel mixture to several cylinders but at random due to the swirling nature of the air inside the manifold. The computer can't compensate for it. The EGR valve sometimes has a leaky diaphragm and this can be a possible source of the leak.

A fuel pump that is growing weak will not send the proper pressure to the injectors and they will at random not squirt enough fuel when called for. Again this will lead to lean fuel mixtures and cause missing. As a possibility, check the fuel pump pressure output. A faulty fuel pressure regulator that is stuck on the idle pressure setting (lower than cruise setting) will also cause this.

The security light is on and the truck will not start. I changed the fuel pump and filter. Now the battery is dead. The sercurity light keeps flashing and will not turn off.


you need to find out what fault code is causing the security light to come on
that's why the vehicle will not start
repair that and the vehicle should start
hope this helps

Hey have you recently changed your head unit. I have a 2000 s10 2.2 and i recently hardwired my pioneer 4000ub head unit and the security light came on upon not starting. every time you try to start the car while the security light is on it will add 10 minutes onto your time. For the security light not to come on you need to check your wiring. just remember dont keep trying becuase it wont work!!! find the problem and fix it.
