    Either the computer chip in your key is corrupted and isn't recognized by the ignition switch, and therefore your anti-theft system is preventing the engine from starting. OR Your ignition switch is in need of replacement. Either way, the anti-theft system thinks you're trying to steal your own car.

does the car have an auto start, if so this could be the problem, like a possible malfunction. And yes it would be a security problem. With auto starts there is a small switch installed so you can turn it off, or reset it. Maybe try and find the switch and turn it off. If the problem stops and you can drive it i would look at replacing or repairing the auto start

SOURCE: chevy astro van turns over but wont start when

Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump

What you have to do is check and see if you have fuel pressure.You have to remove the engine cover to check it.If you don`t have a pressure tester then remove the air cleaner hose to the engine and spray it with carb.cleaner or brake cleaner.If it starts for a few seconds then it is more than likely a fuel pump.If it does not start then you have to check for spark at the spark plugs.Make sure you check more than one plug.If no spark then you have to check the distributor cap and rotor.Make sure the rotor is good and cap also.Things that can cause no spark are the ignition module,coil,and cap and rotor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

you either have bad brake pads or the bolts are loose that hold the front steering suspension on.

Thinking 99 Chevy Astro van security light on solid band starts with cuts down is there anyway to bypass security without spending a lot of money


If the light is on there are code stored ! Not in the PCM/ECM engine computer . In the BCM , do you know what that is ? body control module ! Need a factory scan tool or equivalent to check !

Why does everyone want to chop up things , by pass etc... The right fix could be cheaper then ruining your vehicle . Chopping up wiring harnesses . Their are by pass module , don't know how much they are . It may or may not fix the problem . Pulling the code and doing the diagnostics is still the best solution .

Changed steering column security light flashing and will not stay running key with used column


I'm not completely sure how all the chips work, but if the chip is not activated, the engine will run for 3 seconds, then shut down. It will only do this 4 or 5 times, then it will not start at all. If this is happening, then you need to have the key chipped to match the ignition/van.

Yes it sounds like a security system problem. Does the new column have pass key? You are leaving the key on until the security light stops flashing? The light is flashing for 10 minutes?
