Hours of surfing and I found out it's one of my batteries or posts. Cleaned the posts and it started. Even though no battery light came on, that's what it was. Thanks for e-mailing me back.

SOURCE: Dash and interior lights flash and truck will not

your battery is bad. Happened to me a month ago. I checked the alternator, it was fine. I put a new battery in ,and has been trouble free. I had no warning, other than it was the factory battery and it was5 years old.

SOURCE: The electronic throttle control light is flashing in my 2004 1500 5.7 Hemi truck, won't accelerate but does turn on, where should i start?

The 1st thing that MUST be done is to have the electronic engine control system computer (called the "PCM") scanned for fault codes, this gives you the starting point for diagnosis od why the warning/fault light is on. You can get the scan for fault codes done for free at any Autozone or similar discount auto parts store in your area. Aamco Transmission does the scan for free as well.

SOURCE: 1997 Oldsmobile Regency won't start;security light, Happens occasinonally

This is an all too common problem on GM vehicles. The problem is in the antitheft system. When the system loses communication (like when a part breaks or fails) the system locks out the starter because it thinks it is getting stolen. The SECURITY light that is lit up proves this problem. That is the only function of the security light. Go to this link, there is a ton of info on this problem along with some tricks to maybe get you going, along with a very good permanent solution to an ongoing problem with these security antitheft systems.

I have a 2003 chevy malibu that won;t start. When you turn the key to on the Theft System light comes on steady ( no flashing). I t used o go into this mode periodically where the Theft System light...


I have had the same problem. This has happened to me three times in the past nine months or so. Per the owner's manual, you turn the key to the on position and wait about ten minutes. This resets the system and when the "Theft System" light goes out, it starts right up. I did this each time and it started right up.

2002 malibu 3100 v-6 won't start, getting fuel and fire to all cylinders


if the security light is flashing than the anti theft is active. The anti theft shuts down the injectors and will not let the vehicle start.

You'll need a battery charger to do this. Hook up the battery charger to the battery.

Place the key in the igniton and attempt to start. Let the key return to the run postion and leave it there untill the light stops flashing. Turn the key off

Turn the key on (do not try to start) and wait for the light to stop flashing again.

turn the key off and then try to start the vehicle.

You can google search "resetting gm security" and find this info as well.

2003 alero steering won't lock and nothing happens when you turn the key in the ignition


If the security light keeps flashing,you might as well do a reset.
Be sure to turn off all the accesories including the radio before you start the process.
Insert the key to the ignition switch and turn the key to ON position without starting the car.
leave it ON until the flashing light (security) stops.It will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
As soon the flashing stop,turn the key to OFF
position and start the cart.
Hope this help.

Why wont my car start even after i tried the security reset. i turned key to on position for 10 minutes turned it off then tried to start it 3 times. security light still flashes


turn the key on and wait till the security light stops flashing ( this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn the key off then back on but do not try to start the engine and wait till the security light stops flashing ( again this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn key off then turn key on and start engine.

1997 sable cranks won' t start theft light flashing


Some cars can be reset by turning the ignition to on and waiting a while to reset. Could be as much as 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing when it is reset. Others have a different process. If you have the owners manual it may tell how to do this.

This may work also and a lot faster.
insert the key in
the drivers door, turn left, then right
to disarm and reset it.
