The best thing to do is drive your vehicle to the local auto parts store and borrow (for free) there OBD II scan tool. This electronic tool attaches underneath the drivers side steering wheel and it will obtain the trouble code from your vehicle computer. After you find out what the code number is you will need to look in the back of a Haynes repair book and match the number you found with the number in the book to pinpoint the component that has failed. This will save you alot of time and from buying the wrong parts

The Security Light came on . It was on about a

Security light has to do with just that, security and nothing else. Has to do with the Factory Anti-Theft System called VATS. If you look at your key on the silver part there is a metal contact surrounded by black plastic, thats a resistor that the veh reads every time you put your key in. Once it reads the resistance then it lets the veh start. Nothing to do with AC or how hot it is out side.

I start my car this morning and engine service soon idication falshed more then one time and continue flashing my question is is it safe for me to dirve the car till monday as i feel the shakes while i am...

If the service engne soon light is flashing, it means you have a hard failure, that is occuring at that time. If the car is shaking, it sounds like some sort of misfire. If you continue to drive it, you risk permanent damage to the engine, and catalytic convertors.

93 grand ltd Stalls after intial start all dummy lights come

greetings: the reason your veh will not run is because the security system has been activated. it will allow you to start it but the security system kills the motor so the veh can not be driven off if in fact it was being stolen. if you have the remote control, lock the veh and then unlock it. this will shut the security system down and return your veh to normal and it should start and run normal. i have a 93 and 94 both worked this way. using the key to lock and unlock to shut the system did not work for me but the remote did the job.also anytime the batt cable is removed, the security system will activate when you put the batt cable back on. then you have to do what i described above on mine to deactivate the security system. the manual says use the key to deactivate the system but that does not work on mine. i hope this helps have a great day wayne
