How do I override the security shut down on my car?

First, be sure the car is back into park or neutral. This may also be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when the system fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into.

Where is the voltage regulator located on the 03 monte carlo have a problem with the security system the gauge for the alt dont not show any voltage the battary light flashes with security light and it...

The security system considers low voltage a threat to the security of the vehicle. MAYBE, just maybe the gauge not reading the voltage correctly is causing the security system to shut you down. 2 options: Fix the gauge and hope that allows the secuiry to work properly OR bypass the security system so it CANT shut you down... The security light is an infamous problem on GM vehicles. They tend to NOT be tied into anything other than the ignition, TDM computer (theft deterrent module), starters or injectors. But anything is possible on new cars. I'll tell you what, bypassing that security system is a gauranteed way to get that car running again. Only takes about an hour as i have done alot of these personallly. This site has tons of info and ive done both different bypasses decribed on this site and they both work. Pending on your vehicle's system.

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?

Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

Security system shut down car.ignition was replaced a year ago,light came back on 2 months battery went dead and car wont restart.

The security system will not shut down the car while running, if the car shut off while engine was running you may have another problem. Do you have a "chip" or black pellet in your key, if so the wires going to the key cylinder may be broken at the cylinder or the key may be worn if you are having a security problem

I bypassed the security system the car still want start I placed a hot wire directly on starter and the car turned over but there was no fuel going up what is the problem now

Try hooking the security system up again so that it's functional, then take out the fuse that's located on the fuse box in the trunk that's associated with the security system. It should be labeled "theft" and it's a 10amp fuse. The system will still function as normal only the horn will not sound if the security system is tripped and it will not shut down the fuel pump.
