Try removing the negetive terminal from the battery for about 30 minutes to allow the system to reset, this should correct the problem.,,, if you have a aftermarket alarm you might need to get someone to remove it. these have a tendency to get a little crazy sometimes

The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

Car won't turn on; clicking sound


It does sound like a starter problem but the easiest way to rule that out is by trying to jump start the car with a push , if your starting motor has packed in it will still start with a jump start

I can't start my 1995 hyundai elantra after forgetting to turn off the lights when going for class. I try to jump start it but the car won't start and all the lights keep on flashing and flick


After connecting battery, try using key in drivers door to lock, and /or unlock. Try passenger if that doesn't work, as well as valet key if it came with one.

Our 2002 alero won't turn over /start with key but starts by jumping. Test shows battery and fuses OK


Look for a light that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT on the dash. This light could cause this problem. Explained on this link.

Turn the car off went into the store came back out tried to the start car and it was a no go. Car has spark and fuel pumping to the system i am thinking it jumped time but if there is any other...


The security light is 100% the problem. Let me say that again, one hundred percent. GM's are equipped with an anti theft security system. These systems are notorious for failure, and when they do, you get exactly what you have. A car that won't start with a security light on. The problem is figuring out why the system is failing. Could be anything from a bad key, to the actual anti theft computer called a TDM. (theft deterrent module) ive had great luck with just bypassing the whole system. Saves money and time. Prevents future problems. And you can do it yourself. This link will explain everything you need to know and give you ways to fix this yourself for hundreds less than a mechanic. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

My 1999 Buick Park Ave started hesitating and the CEL would flash. I would back off the accelerator and it would smooth out and the light would go off. About a month ago the car died while I was driving it...


Have you tried the reset method? Turn key to the ON position and leave it there for 10 minutes, or until the security light goes off. Then turn key to off, and back to on and start-see if it starts after letting it sit for a few minutes like that with the key in the on position.

Van won't start. I just bought this van (1997 caravan) used and it stared with no problem. The last 2 days it has refused to start. When I try to start it will struggle and almost turn over then it...


When the van refuses to start, have you tried to jump start it? If not, I would suggest you do, because it would allow you to rule out the battery and alternator (or at least be relatively confident that they are good) if the van DOES NOT start when you try to jump start it, then it would be either the starter/solenoid or in the engine.
