Someone tried to steal my 2002 monte broke ignition. security light comes on cant start car can i disable it to get the car started

You have two choices, you can purchase a new ignition lock cylinder (costs between 150-200 at most any part store) and take it to a lock smith with your original key to have the pins changed to where your key operates the new lock cylinder. And then have it changed out. Or you can take your car to a mobile audio store that installs aftermarket remote start systems and have them bypass the PassLock anti theft system. Cost should be about the same either way, may be just a but cheaper for the bypass, but then your car will be more vulnerable. If the PassLock had been bypassed when they attempted to steal it, it might be gone right now.

My car starts and the securiy light comes on why?

Usually a broken wire in the column. There are several wires there, depending on whether you have passlock II or passlock III. They just break. Luckily yours broke while the car was running, which sets the security into default mode. Otherwise you wouldn't get the car started. If you decide to fix it or have it fixed, you will have to do a relearn for the security. Takes 30 minutes. Put a charger on the battery, Turn the key on (Don't try to start it) for ten minutes off for 30 seconds, on for ten, off for 30, on for ten off for 30, then start the engine. At any time the voltages drops too low or you accidently hit the starter and it trys to start, you will have to start all over.

2003 Saturn 2.2 ecotec will not start. Drove in, replaced battery and hasn't started since. Tried re learning Passlock and it did not work. Sounds like compression is gone. Pistons are moving, cam

timing belt broke.
take the gray plastic cover off and inspect the belt... I bet it is broke.
You may beable to get away with replacing it since it was not running when it broke... but I doubt it...

Security light is on in my 1999 gmc safari and starts fine sometimes and sometimes won't start. turns over fine, just doesn't run. fuel pressure is fine cap and rotor are new. i do not believe the...

This car is equipped with Passlock antitheft security by GM. You dont have a chip, but there is a transponder in the key head. This system is known to fail. The fact that the security light is on proves the failure of the Passlock and why it wont run. The hard part is finding out which part of the passlock system has failed. Read this link for info and DO IT YOURSELF solutions to the problem.
