Security light 1993 camaro wont start


The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterperates this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.
This link may help you find ways to bypass this or fix it yourself.

The security light wont go off in my oldsmobile cutless


The security light is an issue that has plagued GM since the 80's. The security light indicates a failure in your antitheft system. It all stems from a signal in that little black chip in your key, It gets read by the ignition lock cylinder, and then sent to the Theft Deterrent Module. (TDM) The TDM is the computer part of the system that receives all the proper signals and then allows the starter to start. Any one of these three parts could be the culprit in your car. The hard part its determining which one. It is possible to bypass this system if so desired. I'm sure the demand for stolen cars from the 90's has subsided a little by now. This link should help you understand the problem and also help if you decide to bypass it.

Car wont start, the security light is blinking and the car wont start


Your VATS security system is failing. Quick fix, turn key forward 2 clicks till right before it starts. Leave it for 10 minutes. (no less) turn back key and then start again. should be fine. Getting these fixed is about 800 bucks. They sell a bypass for 200 online. I did the "10 minute trick" for over a year, till finally the Computer went. I ended up doing the 200 dollar bypass. Works great, no worries.
Wont crank, wont start, everything else seems fine???? Black chip on key? Read up on this link

you need to get a new ign. lock cylinder and chip key. Or you can get a lock cylinder and copy your old key with a regular key no chip. Take new cylinder, put old chip key in it. Plug into harness at the bottom of steering column just behind the dash, fine orange wire from existing one in the column. Hide lock cylinder under dash and start car with copy of old key.

The security system is the problem. Sounds like the contacts are bad in the lock cylinder. You need to replace it or bypass the security system. I can tell you how to do that if you want. let me know.
