Hi, this code (p0690) has to do with your security system and ignition switch. The security system is saying the key is in the off position and the ignition switch is in the start/run position(Computer is confused). Since your lights and radio are running all the time, i would say your ignition switch is bad. Replace ignition switch. Let me know if you need any other help. Good Luck.

Replacing the ignition can cause problems in itself. After you change it, the car most likely wont start. Here is a link on that

Security light stays on when car is locked with key flob or power door lock button kills battery but if you lock it manually light goes out,


The light is supposed to stay on, when the key is used the system is not armed, it should not kill the battery if the battery is in good shape. I suggest you take it and have the battery load tested.

you have to do that cycle 3 times,battery needs to fully charged.
Hood to stay closed,doors also(roll down the drivers window)
Kill the DRL headlights if possible(try putting the E-brake on)
Crank and leave key on,10 min or till light goes out,then key off,,no need to wait 5 min here,crank again.leave key on,,,,,3 times.
By the way,disconnecting the battery in that vehicle will not do anything like clear codes or memory,may need the radio code in the owners manual also.

How do i bypass security lock lite on dash to start 2007 chevy cobalt with normal key


You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery or dead battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzz kill I know. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio, which will also bring your whole car back to life. Please tell everyone you know about this. Put in on your blog. Post it at work....

If your battery is officially dead, start by replacing it. Some vehicles will not jump start if the battery is completely gone, as with a dead short internally. You may still have to get Dealer assistance to clear the Theft system code.
