Sounds as though the computer chip that is in your key is no longer being read by your cars security system. these chips are a basic resistor and have been known to go out from time to time. one thing we do at the lockshop to fix this issue is to hard wire in a resistor to the ignition itself ( of the proper value ). this basically by passes the key security part of the system and you will never have to worry about this problem again. a mechanic or a locksmith can do this bypass for you and it will save you the cost of a new ignition switch which is very expensive. ( the resistor costs about 5 bucks -- and the labor to install is about 75 dollars -- depending on what part of the country you live in ). this will also allow you to just get regular keys made for for spares at the cost of $2.75 instead of $29.95 for chipped keys ).

Put in a new fuel pump car still won't start has a security light on what do we do to get it started


If the Security Light is on but is not flashing, the security system is fine. If the security light is flashing then turn the ignition key to the run position (do not start). Wait over ten minutes and then try to start the engine. After the ten minutes you should notice that the light stopped flashing. If the engine starts then you do have a problem with the Passlock Security System.

Car lights and everything goes on, but the car will not start


turn key from off to the on postiton. does the security light blink?
if so leave in on postition until light stops blinking (10min) then try to start car. may have to repeat process up to three times.
if the security re-learn process works, you will need a new ignition cylinder with security sensor. if not local gm dealer can tell you for sure.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.
