The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

Had the same issue with our 1999 chevy astro van, would crank but would not start. It had been raining and windshield had a leak, after 2 days of no rain it started. Pulled codes and was the Security system in the ignition switch. Hope this helps.

Why won't my chevy van stay started ?


One thing to check into would be the antitheft system. Not knowing what year or type of vehicle makes it hard to help. But like i said, engine shut down in 5 seconds or less is a symptom of a bad antitheft security system. This link explains.

Anti-thief system cut off power to den gine an won't cut it back on


If you are dealing with the anti theft the anti theft will flash as you are trying to start the vehicle if this is the case then it is the anti theft if not then you are not dealing with a ant theft issue. You can do a 30 minute relearn procedure without a scan tool. here is how Turn ignition on without the engine reunning.attempt to start the vehicle then release the key to ON.(vehicle doest start) Observe the security light.afeter 10 minutes the security light will turn off.Turn off the ignition and wait 5 seconds.do this 3 times for 30 minutes. start the engine with the engine started the vehicle will learn the passlock key.

My security light was flashing last night when i tried to leave the comedy club i was at . could that be the reason that my van won't start & if so how do you re-set it???


yes this is most likely the reason you can try cutting key on for ten minutes and see if light goes out if it does it will crank up. but you are having a problem with the theftlock and it will need to be fixed.

Won't Start...Security Light On


Try this! Turn key all on (but notrunning) for 30mins., turn off then back on for 10mins., turn off and then back on for 10mins. turn off and then try starting engine. sounds like security system burnt up. may have to replace it.
