Resistor or contacts on your key may be wearing out, or possibly the contacts inside the locks. Try using another factory key, if you have one. Google passlock II for more details.

I have a 2001 impala and these cars have pretty much the same system, and when my car did that, I needed a new body module. If you just had some things fixed and it doesn't seem like they are fixed or you are still experiencing the security light, I would take it to your dealer and have them test your computer to see if that is the problem.

Security light remains on

This happens when the ignition can't read the key. If it is not starting when it does this. to fix this leave the key in the on position not running for 10 min or till the security key flashes and turn it off wait 5 seconds and then start it. If the light stays on and it is running just drive it like that put some electrical tape over the light. ours has bin on for 84,000 km and this no start thing has happened a few times this is a common gm problem. hope this helps you.

The security light stay on all the time

The security light indicates a failure in the anti theft system. This can cause the truck to "not start" or stall while running. The cost to have this fixed can run up to 1000 bucks, but there are ways to bypass this system yourself. I've done dozens of these personally and they work very well. Another great thing about bypassing is that you will never have to worry about this happening again. Go to this link for info, pictures, and ways to fix this yourself.

My 2003 Malibu sounds like it wants to start, but it does cranks over. I tried the sparks, there is a new battery, we put gas in the fuel filter, we even tried the security disabling method, and even tried...

it could be a couple of thing depending on what engine you have in your car if its the ecotec 4 cylinder it could have jumped time which would be the timing gears, or it could possibly be the fuel pump, also check all your fuses and make sure that none of them are blown. hope this helps.

What that means is you might have something wrong with your power steering. Could mean low power steering fluid if you haven't check it lately. Bad sensor like what happen to my car or things wrong with your power steering pump,control arms,....just two many things...

Not something you can fix unless you know how to pull a steering column out and have a scan tool to reset the light once the sensor is replaced. The sensor itself is expensive ( over $200 ) The only thing that happens with a bad sensor is that you have full time power...

Light flashes 8 times when I turn the key ,this is before trying to start it. it is skipping at lower rpms.

Have your catalytic converter checked out. Make sure you are not confusing flashing a bunch of times with dash trouble codes which will be low numbers like 1-5 with pauses. If CEL flashes over and over a bunch of times that usually means serious emissions control problem which could include total failure of cat and not a cheap thing to replace.

My 1995 golf gl (2l) automatic won't start when I turn the key. The dash lights and all the electrical goes on but when I turn the key in the ignition, nothing happens. I ended up just pulling and tugging...

Check and clean, if necessary, your battery terminals - and then make sure they're tight and secure. I had this happen once with an old Subaru: everything electrical worked (although the lights were very dim, wipers were sluggish, etc.), but the problem turned out to be loose and dirty battery terminals. Started right up after that. . .

Same thing happened to me.
You will have to take it to the shop and have a dealer fix it.
It is what they call the "cluster" up by the firewall behind the engine that controls all the functions of the car.

Hello Ron,
There are a few things you can try, first of all take a look under the drivers side brake lights you will see a bunch of wiring there going into a block sometimes the wires will just fall out after a few years of getting hot,cold ect. Now make sure that all the wires are plugged in and tight. Now if thats all ok the next thing you can try is to take off the negative post on your battery and leave off for about 10 minutes should be enough to reset computer. Now after you do that you may have to reset the security system, Now what you want to do is make sure battery is hooked back up, and now you want to make sure your window is down drivers side in case doors lock, Unless you have another set of keys, Now use the key with the little sensor on it put it in ignition and turn key to the on position and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes remember not running the engine just in the On position, After that time go ahead and try everything out, Everything should be set back to the factory setting on your computer and security center. Alright Ron Thats about it for now. Give me a hoot if you need to ask me anything else. OK And Thanks for Using Fix Ya Bear001
