Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

Highlander Security system question

Just wondering if anyone has a 'prevent' for the problem we experienced where the car key refused to turn and the security light continued blinking as if car had not disabled it yet for starting. First recommended fix was: get out and lock & unlock using remote. No effect. Second fix: depress accelerator and then turn key while jockeying steering wheel. This worked. Tho I don't yet know why. And is there a way to prevent the security from becoming TOO powerful ...? I have a 1997 chevy blazer with a car alarm with a very similar problem., when I turn off the car the key will not turn off all the way and will not come out. I have tried everything that has been suggested and nothing is working so far, every once in awhile the key desides to turn of all the way and come out. Does anyone have a solution for this problem? I sure would appreciate it.

Why won't my highlander start.Nothing happens when key turned to start. Starter not turning.


If you went straight to starter with jumper cables and you got nothing then , then pull and have starter bench tested. Also make sure you haven't trigger some kind of security on your system that would lock you out from starting. you should see a security light flashing if you did.

99 pontiac firebird. the security light is constant on. turn key and nothing happens.


Nothing you can do here try the spare key and if this is the same then its a dealer only job or a auto locksmith to re-programme it for you ,if you only have one key then the chip may have dropped out of the key fob ,if you have a remote start alarm thing then this could be faulty as they often go wrong.Either way their is no way you can start the vehicle as the immobilisor is to prevent anyone from stealing the car by hot wiring it which some deliquents still think they can do and this is down to watching too many TV programmes it just doesnt happen on newer cars over the last 20 yrs

I just purchased a 2008 Toyota Highlander with the smart key ignition system. How can I prevent being stranded if the smart system won't start the car?


If the smart key battery gets low to where it won't start the car you can hold the smart key with the logo facing the start button close to the button then push it to start the engine.

Our security dumbie light came on. It is not driving any differently


The passkey module has malfunctioned, or your ignition key resistor is missing, or the key reader is not functioning.

With a functional passkey system and this condition the car would only run for a short while before turning off, or refuse to start.

This car still works since the security system in the 1997 Buicks were defective and will not actually prevent the vehicle from starting if it does not detect a coded ignition key.

This problem is safe to ignore but you could bring it to the dealer (or a shop that can flash the PCM) and disable the security module to eliminate the light.

Keys & fob locked inside toyota highlander. help?!


I just put a small wood wedge in the top of the door, slid a wire hanger in and popped the lock. the alarm did go off but I was able to pull the door handle as I popped the lock and open the door. Stuck the keys in the ignition and turned it over and the alarm was deactivated...easy to do with minimal tools.
