The security light means that the anti theft system is malfunctioning. There is a communication between your key, ignition, and TDM. (theft deterrent module). When this communication is broken, the security light comes on and will eventually shut down your starter or injectors. The whole purpose being that, if the key's signal does not match the signal needed in the TDM, it must be getting stolen and shuts the car down. Read up on this problem thru this link. Alot of info and some possible "do it yourself" solutions. For the record, this problem is quite common, and expensive. Check out these options before running to the dealer or mechanic. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

GMC Sierra or Chevy silverado ? Do you have a SECURITY light lit ?
The SECURITY indicator is on the instrument cluster. If the SECURITY indicator flashes or if the SECURITY indicator lights continuously during the vehicle operation, refer to Diagnostic System Check - Theft Deterrent . If there is a problem the vehicle will start an run for just a second or two . It disables the fuel injectors .

This is from your owners manual, the little wrench means the following:
Electronic throttle control:
Illuminates when the engine has
defaulted to a ’limp-home’ operation.
Report the fault to a dealer at the
earliest opportunity.

U have some kind of serious fault, u need to go to the dealer.

Wrench light


It may be that your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) is bad or dirty. Try cleaning it, and if that doesn't work, then replace it. It goes for about $45, but if you take it to the stealership they'll run you over $200.
I had the same problem and got it fixed. Takes a couple of minutes.
