>security system. Where\'s the switch or reset button?

If it was that easy why have a security system? GM does it again.

This worked on a 2000 so try it and see if it works on yours.

(1)Turn key to crank & then release. Security light still on. Wait till it goes off (maybe 15 minutes)
(2)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(3)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(4) Turn to off. Wait 20 seconds and start car.


Key must go to full off on each pass. Must have fully charged battery. Good Luck.

Even if this does not work a good testimonial would be appreciated

2000 Tundra security system will not reset has shut down everything and will not crank. Tried the key in the door, key in ignition, searched for a valet button or toggle, nothing. No valet button


this year model did not come from the factory with a security system but many were installed at the dealer, is there a button under the steering column? if so i recommend you delete the alarm, if you ever have issues with the battery this will happen again. follow the wiring from the red light to the alarm control module and unplug the main clear connetor from the unit, also at the ignition switch you would have to unplug the ignition switch connector from the wire lead that goes to the alarm and reconnect the trucks factory connector to the igniton switch to take the ignition out of the alarm circuit

I need help !!!!!!!! I have a 2000 ford focus that was running good and while driving it just turned off and wont restart. I have checked the entire fuel system and everything seems to be in good work


Try to reset the inertia switch. It is usually around the front kickpanel and has a reset button on it. If that does not help, use a little starting fluid to see if it will run a bit. What the starting fluid will tell you is if you have fuel problems. If it runs or fires with starting fluid then the spark side is working and you can concentrate on a injector or fuelpump problem.

Have a 1996 oldsmobile cutlass supreme , the security light has been on, and now it will not let me start. Is there a reset button that I can hit to fix the problem


No reset button .You have to replace the ignition switch and lock cylinder the security system does't reconize your key and is shutting down the fuel injectors.

Changed oil and cleaned battery cables.Started car up. Ran for 2 seconds security alarm went off car shut down.no power to fuel pump.Is there some way to reset the fuel pump


You need to reset the alarm system.That can be done with the remote entry key fob or by locking then unlocking the drivers door with the ignition key with all doors closed.This is for a factory alarm system.Also check the inertia switch,should be in the trunk,on the side with a push button top.Push button.If already down its not tripped.

Need to know about the fuel pump shut off button and the reset button .... how do i go about resetting it



  1. you know were it is right?
  2. Turn the ignition switch OFF .
  3. Ensure that there is no fuel leaking in the engine compartment, along any of the lines or at the tank. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  4. If no leakage and/or odor is apparent, reset the switch by pushing the reset button on the top of the switch.
  5. Cycle the ignition switch from the ON to OFF positions several times, allowing five seconds at each position, to build fuel pressure within the system.
  6. Again, check the fuel system for leaks. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  7. If there is no leakage and/or odor of fuel, it is safe to operate the vehicle. However, it is recommended that the entire system be checked by a professional, especially if the vehicle was in an accident severe enough to trip the inertia switch

How to change the maintenance light in a 2006 GS 300


Chris,

I know you have the solution by now by Im submitting this post anyway.

To reset the oil maintence:

Have the car in a secure location with the engine off

1. Press the ingition button once, do not have your foot on the break pedal
2. Make sure you have the instrument cluster (panel on left hand side below gauges) open
3. The button marked "reset" depress it for 30 seconds and the "oil maintenance," should be reset.

Hope that helps.
