Security light flashes


Antitheft or Security system failure is a common problem on GM vehicles. Every time you put your key in the ignition, the vehicle's security system reads the signal from your key to make sure it is OK to run. When it recieves the "correct key" signal, the security system allows the starter to turn over, and/or the fuel injectors to function and your car works like it normally does every day. If you were to use a different key, or try to hotwire it, the system would shut down these parts of your car, thus making the vehicle completely immobile. This is GM's way of preventing vehicle theft. The problem is that the system is known to fail quite commonly. It has been failing consistantly for around 30 years. When it fails, two things can happen. First, you turn the key and nothing happens at all. Lights work, radio works, windows work... just not the starter that you need to start the vehicle. This is a "starter immobilizor". Second, you turn the key and the vehicles starts just fine, but then stalls in 2-5 seconds. This is a "fuel immobilizor". It literally cuts off the fuel injectors and stalls the vehicle to immobilize it. These are normally, but not always followed by a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. These lights are to inform you of the system's failure to collect the information it needs from your key to the computer. If your security/antitheft light is on, odds are you will be stranded soon, if not already. Remember that the security system controls the security light. If the system is failing, the light may never warn you of the failure. There is a lot of info on this site that you can read up on. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I had a fuel pump replaced and after the job was done my battery was dead so It was taken out and charged up now my anti-theft light and the car won't start,days' later I came out turned the key it...


is the security light still on? a quick test is to remove the negative terminal on the battery for 10 minutes. reconnect and see if car starts without the security light on.
if the light remains on turn the key to ON without starting engine and leave it for 10-15 min until light goes out and then start the car, it should then stay running when you open the door.
the late 90's into 2000's GMs have issues with their security systems acting up, unfortunately your car is one of the ones it affects.there is no way to disable the system because it is part of the ECM
always unlock driver door first when using the key, there is actually a sensor that the computer reads, if the door is unlocked without a key such as using a slim jim or coat hanger the system will trigger a no start and the light will be on.

Insert key and turn ignition to on position. Wait untill the "security" light goes out (about ten minutes). Turn key off. do not remove. repeat this step two more times. After third time remove key.

Programming 2nd key, 2007 escalade


The correct procedure is to put in the original key to the On posistion.
Remove and insert the second within 10 seconds. Turn to the On. Wait like 7 seconds. Then remove the key, reinsert to test.
The key (no pun intended) here is to wait for the security light to go out.

Put in your original key or the one the car already knows. Wait for the light to go out (the little car with the padlock) and then turn the key off, swap in the key you wish to program, then wait again for the security light to go out. You are done.

Turn your key to the "on" position. Your security light will be flashing. Leave it in the on position and wait for 10 minutes. The security light will stop flashing, and it will reset itself. Turn the key back to the off position before trying to start it again.

1995 Buick Riviera SC: traction and the security light


traction switch is located next to drivers left knee on bottom of dash....you should be able to turn off the traction light there by just turning on the traction control.....the security light is telling you that there is a problem with your security system....could just need a new key with a new computer chip....make sure the key is clean and dry when using so it can read the chip....the security light comes on whenever your start the car and stays on for approximatley 2 minutes and then should go out....it is just a reminder....try this and see if it works....lock the door using the power switch on door.....close door and see if the security light comes on....watch and it should go out after about 2 minutes...if it does then your alarm is activated and working....to disarm you need to unlock the driver door with the key...anything else will set the alarm off and the lights will start flashing and the horn honking...after you set the alarm off you will always have to use the key to unlock the drivers door to turn off the alarm and reset the security system.

4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming
the key into the vehicle.

The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.

more minutes.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.
