SOURCE: SL2 ? 2000 starting problem

I had the same problem at one time and what the problem was is a short or an exposed wire connected to the starter which causes the voltage to fluctuate which in turn activates a security feature that stops the flow of fuel to the injectors. The car actually senses the possibility of a spark which could possibly ignite the fuel and be a fire hazard. If you turn the ignition on and off repeatedly after a certain amount of time the car will start and run fine. It is a very intermittent problem.

SOURCE: Security light blinking and car won't start

you've run afoul of the "passlock" anti-theft, or "passive anti-lock system" (aka PATS). I'm pretty sure you're in for some attention from a GM dealer who appear to be the only ones with the hardware to "flash" the brain-box (PCM). Here's a sequence that I've seen noised around on some of these forums: Turn your ignition to "on" (don't try to start) and leave it for 10 minutes, Take the key out for ten minutes. The system has thus "learned" the new key metallurgy, and you can go ahead and start the car. It didn't work in my case but it's worth a shot. Also if you have a code scanner see if you have any trouble codes. Stay in touch with us on this as I'm still going around the pole on mine, ... cheers

How do you unlock the security system on a 2004 grand am?


Put the key ignition to the ON switch for 15 minutes, when the light start blinking (or a beep sound goes on), turn the key to OFF, remove the key (you have to remove it) then start the car again. If it doesn't work, do the whole process for 30 minutes wait instead of 15 minutes. Good luck, there are video also for bypassing the passlock security in youtube.

My car wont stay started. I have an '03 buick regal, everytime I try to start it starts but every light on the dashboard starts blinking and the car eventually dies out. Can anyone help me?


Seems like the immobilizer, the best option is to get diagnostic check up and you will know for sure, it could be something simple like loose wire connection, you could try to detach negative terminal on the battery, leave for 15 minutes, than switch your parking light on and reconnect the terminal, this may reset the fault in the ECU but its only a guess. If this does not help than diagnostics only.

Security light blinks when key is turned to on and will not start, also is the key supposed to be coded? 2003 saturn vue 2.2


Ok to learn the key you have to do what is call 10 minute learn , turn the key to start in attempt to start the car without turning the key off after you do this leave the key on for 10 minute until light goes out, After the security light goes out turn key off for a second or two and then try to start. If you have a new key you have to do a 30 minute learn you have to do the same thing as you did for the 10 minute learn but 3 time try and start without turning key off wait 10 minutes until security goes out then try and start again and leave key on, after you do this 3 time (30 minutes) the 3rd time is where you turn the key of for a second or two before starting.

Saturn L200 Passlock Problem


I have a very untechnical solution to this problem and I can't for the life of me remember where I heard it but it sure does work. Turn the igniton to ON so that the dash lights up. Eventually the others lights go out and the flashing "Securty" light stays. Keep the driver side door slightly ajar and sit and wait for that Security light to stop blink, usually 5-10 minutes. Once it stops blinking you can start your car. I can't promise that you won't have the starting problem again, but it will happen with decreasing frequency. Ultimately you need to have the passlock issue handled at a dealership. I say DEALERSHIP because it's a manufacturer flaw and they should be made aware of this issue everytime. They're also best equipped to handle it.

94 cadillac deville...car will not start or turn over because the security light blinks on and off. had a new key made at the dealer and performed the relearn procedure..I put the key in the RUN position...


As the prescribed method isn't working it would seem likely the antitheft system is broken and should be checked by a professional.

Electronics aren't bulletproof and at over 20 years old the ones fitted to your car are 20 years less robust and 20 years less sophisticated and easily damaged by such things as welding, battery charging, jump starting or even nearby lightning strikes. Such instances often do not cause obvious damage immediately but rather have a weakening effect so the final breakdown happens later, maybe years later.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.
