2001 cherolet light/feature

We have a 2001 chevy s10 bought it used roughly a little over a year ago
since then we've spent $1000 on the same problem
the security light comes on and the truck won't start
we've had different parts replaced, which seems to help for a short time
and then it starts recently as this morning
we'd like to remove this security feature or by pass it..but we've been told it's installed from the factory and can not be done
anyone have any solutions????

Please someone post the answer, my truck is the same way. It used to just need to sit for about 15 min. and would start. Now it won't start at all.

How to replace 2001 s10 pickup fuel pump

This is not a full answer, but a tip on an easier get to the pump. Instead of removing the gas tank. Just pull the bed off the truck! I guarantee that it will be easier. I did this on a 2001 S10 and it took less that an hour to remove the bed.
Remove the spare tire, and the tube that the tool to lower the tire goes through. You will need to unplug your tail lights under the back or the bed on both sides. There is also a grounding screw for the tail lights on each side that needs to be removed. Remove the screws that hold the gas tank filler hose to the side of the bed - right by the filler cap. Remove the tailgate (to make the bed lighter). Follow the frame down the length of the bed and you will find the bolts holding the bed on. There should be 6 or 8 bolts. My S10 had 8 bolts and my son's full size Chevy PU had 6 bolts (go figure?). Then just lift the bed off the truck. We did my S10 with 3 people and it had a camper shell and rack on it. My son's full size truck was lifted off with only 2 people. I would suggest 4 people however - one on each corner to make it easier to lift and control.
Replace the pump as described above and then you can start the engine to make sure everything works before setting the bed back on. NOTE: The fuel pump grounds back with the tail light ground. If the engine doesn't start right away, try grounding the wire back by the tail lights. It works like a charm. This is an especially nice way to do it if the gas tank is full! I spent 18 years as a professional mechanic and this is one of the slickest, least known tricks I have come across. I wish I'd known about it when I was wrenching for a living! Cheers!

Car will not start security blinking can not get it to trun off is there a way to bypass or trun it off

turn your key to the on position and leave it until the security light stops blinking, im pretty sure it's about 10 minutes. Once it has stopped blinking, turn the key back to the off position and then try and start. but keep in mind that this will only work that time. Chances are this will come back. If you don't mind having your security light on all the time, then try this. It's a cheap fix compared to the 500 a dealership will charge you.
