Possibly key is worn out. Key has a resistor with contacts on both sides, right? Do you have an extra key that works better? Or, have a new key made at the dealer.

I have a 99 chevrolet camaro and the security light is on and wont go off or start and i tried retraining the brain but it still comes right back on when i turn the key off and back on


I had a similar problem with a 1991 Chrysler. There was a short in the security system so either it would drain the battery or the security light would start flashing and the car wouldn't start. My mechanic used wiring schematics to trace where the computer chip to the security system was located and simply removed it.
If it was me I would just have the same thing done to the Camaro instead of wasting time and money while trying to figure out exactly where the problem is.

Why wont my 2000 buick lesabre start when the security light comes on?


The light is on to indicate you have been locked out and the engine disabled. You must now have the dealer scan the system and determine the cause of the malfunction in the security system, it is likely the ignition lock cylinder key code reader that is defective.

The red security light comes on in my buick century 2000 and sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't! it may take 5 minutes to start or sometimes an hour!1! please can i disconnect a fuse or


If it is an aftermarket system you should be able to disconnect it.
You may have to look for extra wires attached to the fuse box to find the source of power.
Factory systems usually have the word security in the cluster.

Most GM vehicles from the mid 80's to around the mid 2000's have this problem. The problem is the "antitheft" systems that GM has been using. The number one symptom of this problem is seeing a light on the dash that says SECURITY. Read this link for info on these systems and some DO IT YOURSELF ways to fix it forever.

In my 2000 chevy camaro my security light is on and my car wont start what process do i need to do to get it running?


Your vehicle is equipped with the PASS-Key II (Personalized Automotive Security System) theft-deterrent system.
PASS-Key II is a passive theft-deterrent system. It works when you insert or remove the key from the ignition.
PASS-Key II uses a resistor pellet in the ignition key that matches a decoder in your vehicle. When the PASS-Key II system senses that someone is using the wrong key, it shuts down the vehicle's starter and fuel systems. For about three minutes, the starter won't
work and fuel won't go to the engine. If someone tries to start your vehicle again or uses another key during this time, the vehicle will not start. This discourages someone from randomly trying different keys with different resistor pellets in an attempt to make a match.

The ignition key must be clean and dry before it's inserted in the ignition or the engine may not start. If the engine does not start and the SECURITY light stays on when you try to start the vehicle, the key may be dirty or wet. Turn the ignition off.

Clean and dry the key. Wait about three minutes and try again. The SECURITY light may remain on during this time. If the starter still won't work, and the key appears to be clean and dry, wait about three minutes and try another ignition key. At this time, you may also want to check the fuses (see "Fuses and Circuit Breakers" in the Index). If the starter won't work with the other key, your vehicle needs service. If your vehicle does start, the first ignition key may be faulty. See your dealer or a locksmith who can service the PASS-Key II.

If you accidentally use a key that has a damaged or missing resistor pellet, the starter won't work. The SECURITY light will flash. But you don't have to wait three minutes before trying another ignition key.

See your dealer or a locksmith who can service the PASS-Key II to have a new key made.

If you're ever driving and the SECURITY light comes on and stays on, you will be able to restart your engine if you turn it off. Your PASS-Key II system, however, is not working properly and must be serviced by your dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by the PASS-Key II system. If you lose or damage a PASS-Key II ignition key, see your dealer or a locksmith who can service PASS-Key II to have a new key made. In an emergency, call the Chevrolet Roadside Assistance Center at 1-800-CHEV-USA or 1-800-243-8872 (In Canada call 1-800-268-6800).

I found this web site and it works great to disarm the securuty system and only cost you about .75 cents and some time and paitients. The dealership will charge you hundreds of doliars and the problem will come back. We did this to our daughters car and she hasn't had any futher problems with the car not starting because to the security system. Hope this helps !
