    Security light has been on since replacing the ignition switch which caused the vehicle to turn off while driving it. After an oil change, the technician attempted to reset the oil change indicator and the security system disabled the vehicle.

Battery on car went dead, bought a new one, every time I hook up positive post car alarm goes off??????

May want to try connecting the negative cable last. Also, try locking and unlocking the door with the key or disarming the security system. The security system may have caused the old battery to go bad if it has a malfunction.

2006 GMC Envoy car alarm goes off when I open doors or start engine. This happened after installing new battery. It had the same problem when I bought it in 2008. I forget how it was solved.

U need to reset security system (pass lock II). Turn key to on right b4 cranking but don't start and let security light flash for about 10-12 mins until it stops and then turn key back off, repeat procedure two more times don't actually turn key far enough to start during first two 10-12 min cycles, third cycle though after flashing stops turn the rest of the way forward for it to start. This should then reset security and solve problem sometimes only takes two cycles to reset. Good luck, hope this is helpful & solves problem.

The whole system clicks off and on very quickly. This happens more often when the headlites are on. It seems to occur more often the longer drive time I have. It happens often when I turn off the Key...

start engine and then disconnect neg on the battery ,then get in and run engine at 2000rpm and turn every thing electrical on and see if it keeps running ,if it doesnt then alternator output is suspect ?

2001 monty carlo changed battery securty light flashing car wont start. car ran great before any trick or code i dont know to get it to start

Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops blinking. This should take 10 minutes. Then turn the key off, wait 5 seconds and try to start it. The security light should be blinking again. Leave the key on again for 10 minutes. Repeat this 3 times. After the third time on the the next start it should start and run fine. This will reprogram your theft system.

I was checking the fuses on my Venture and now it wont start up.

You may have removed the fuse for theecurity system. When you turn the key to start, does the security light start to flash? If it does the security system will need to be reset. Most GM's reset is to leave the key in the run position after you try to start it. It usually takes 30 min in this position to reset. Some times you need to try to start it and leave the key in the run position for 10 min, off and back to the run position for a total of 3 times and on the last time its off go straight to start it position. I have found it by googling resetting security system venture van. Good luck.

AAA advised me to open and close door with key

Yes. Because the security system was "set". You need the code to unlock the security system for the radio. It is like that for theft pruposes. Best bet is to go to the dealership to have them reset it or figure out how to get the code for your radio.

Security System on 2002 Oldsmobile Alero

the most common cause of this is the key, to check this use another working key, if the problem persists the ignition lock cylinder sensor is defective and the lock cylinder must be replaced, the dealer will need to do this as the security system must be re-programed to accept the new key code.
