    Have been experiencing problems with lights flashing on and off and security system indicator activating while the car is parked and turned off. It has become so bad that the lights will not go off at all now and I have had to disconnect the battery. This Aurora has only 29,000 miles and is in otherwise perfect condition.

Why do my parking lights continuously flash. Slower than emergency lights. I can't turn off flashing, even when engine turned off and key removed.


There are separate flashers for directional and emergency lights so they might not flash at the same rate.

The security light is supposed to flash, it indicates the system is armed, the system is functional in my opinion, why do you think it isn't? It is not the cause of the drain unless the car sits for months. Check for vanity lites in the visor left on or other interior lights.

My 2007 silverado was fine when i parked it last nite..now it wont start..plenty of battery and lights..but no ignition..and the steering wheel is not locked when in park..it will not start in park, or...


The steering wheel will not "lock" until you turn it about 45 degrees from center...this is normal. If your security light is flashing, there is a problem with your security system that is keeping you from starting the engine. Try this: Set the parking brake. Turn the ignition to the "RUN" position and wait about 10 minutes for the security light to stop flashing. When the light stops flashing, crank the engine without turning the key to the off position. If it starts, take the vehicle to get the security system checked. If it doesn't start, tow it. You probably need a new PassKey sensor.

What does it mean when your check enine light is on and the security light is flashing and your car wont start?


If the security light is flashing than the security system is active. It has shut down the fuel injectors and will not let you car start. What you need to do is turn the key to the run position, do not turn all the way to the start position, and leave it there until the theft light stops flashing (10-20 minutes). Once it stops flashing turn the key to the crank position and see if it starts.

You may want to have a battery charger on the battery or at least turn off all the accessories so you don't drain the battery.

My 2001 oldsmobile alero will not start, I put gas and it would not crank over. Then the security light started flashing so I turned the key to the on poistion and was waiting 10 minutes and during that...


im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.
