1999 s-10 no warning buzzers ,headlights dont come on with key dome light dont work off door switch only manual and its stuck in safty mode .. can the ecm cause this ive but fuel pumps and ignition...


Safety mode ??
The headlights should work without the key switch being on.
If the security system is not reading the chip in the key, the engine should not start.
Have you checked the fuses and fuseable links ?

Turn key to start truck but nothing happens, security light is on. lights and everything works


does the starter motor turn? the security light is an indicator of tamper mode. in tamper mode you will not able to start the vehicle until you reset the Passlock system by leaving the key in the ON position for 10-20 minutes.
tamper mode is a result of an unauthorized engine start attempt (such as a "hotwire") or a malfunction in the ignition cylinder.

My car is stuck in anti theft mode and I cant get my car to start


The problem is your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start.
Cheap fix:

----- Bypassing the key
Never worry again fix:

----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

Sounds like your Passlock security system went into the tamper mode. If your dashboard security light blinks when the ignition is turned on, your Passlock security system is disabling the injector module, preventing the car from start. Try this:
1- turn the ignition on and just touch the starter, without getting the motor to fire, then leave the ignition in the "on" position. The security light will blink for about 10 minutes. When the light stops blinking, turn the ignition off and leave off for 3 minutes.
2-repeat the step #1, 3 or 4 times. You will know that is fixed when you turn the ignition on and the security light does not blink, then the car will start. Make sure to stay inside the car when you're doing this, as opening the doors will trip the security tamper mode on again. Once the tamper mode is off, the car starts and opening the doors will not trip the Passlock tamper mode.
