Question about 1995 Buick LeSabre

1995 Buick LeSabre won't start when security light comes on.

I've had a 1995 Buick LeSabre for about a year. The car was doing fine up until recently when everytime I go to get in it in the morning it won't start and the security light comes on. I can't start it until it goes off. Now it won't start at all and the security light just stays on. Please help! I need my car to get to work.

When my 1994 LaSabre had a problem recognizing the chip in the key (due to the contacts in the lock not working), I managed to bypass the system by locating the two wires (clear tube with two smaller wires in it exiting the steerin column, unlike any other wiring), cutting the cable, and soldering a resistor across the two wires that go to the hidden module thet in turn controlls the starter and sends a signal to the engine computer. Use a resistor of the same resistamce value as in one of the keys for the car (measure resistors with a digital meter). There are a dozen or so values used. You loose the extra protection of the chip, but the fix is low cost.

This is related to GM's VATS security system. It treats sudden loss of power as an attempt to steal the car. To reset the system, do the following: courtesy of ***** Master ASE Technician

  • Use your key fob (if equipped) or key to unlock the doors.
  • Turn the key to the start position and release it
  • Leave key in the ON position for 10 minutes.(the security light should go out at this time
  • Turn the key to the OFF position for 10 seconds
Repeat this process 2 more times. At the conclusion, your security light should be out and you should be able to start the car.

1995 Buick Lesabre: security blinks and car will not start


If the starter is turning the engine, try re-setting the security system (leave key on till light stops blinking.) If the starter does not turn, you may have some success in re-setting system, if not you need to check battery voltage and voltages in starter system till you find the problem...can be something as simple as a bad connection at the battery. If you need help with further testing, just ask.
