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 !
DTC B0688 Security System Indicator Circuit High
DTC B2947 Security System Sensor Power CKT Low
DTC B2948 Security System Sensor Power CKT High
DTC B2957 Security System Sensor Data Circuit Low
DTC B2958 Security System Sensor Data Circuit High
DTC B2960 Sec Sys Sensor Data Incorrect but Valid
DTC B3031 Security System Controller in Learn Mode
DTC B3033 Security System Indicates Tamper
DTC C0559 EEPROM Checksum Error
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 .

I have a Saturn 2001 4door s series the security light is on and won't start what can I do


Passlock
The passlock system is a vehicle theft deterrent system which deters drive-away vehicle theft by disabling engine operation if the ignition lock cylinder is not rotated with the proper mechanically cut key.
The passlock system is made up of an ignition switch assembly, passlock sensor, body control module (BCM), instrument panel cluster (IPC), and a powertrain control module (PCM).
The ignition switch contains a magnet mounted on the lock cylinder and a passlock sensor assembly which consists of security hall effect sensor, tamper hall effect sensor, and output resistors. A drill proof metal shield is also staked over the sensor housing.
The passlock sensor mounted to the ignition switch assembly is located inside the upper right side of the steering column. The passlock sensor contains two hall effect sensors: a tamper hall effect sensor and a security hall effect sensor. The tamper hall effect sensor is mounted on top of the security hall effect sensor. Should someone attempt to defeat the system by use of magnetic experimentation, the tamper hall effect sensor will activate first.
The BCM has the passlock controller integrated into it which controls the majority of the security systems logic. The BCM reads the data from the passlock sensor continuously. If the data is correct and has been received by the BCM within a specified time, the BCM will send a coded password to the PCM. The PCM will then allow the fuel injectors to operate.
The coded password for the security system is sent from the body control module to the PCM via the class 2 data link. If the password is correct and received within the specified time, the PCM will allow the fuel injectors to operate.
The IPC contains the security telltale. The security telltale has three modes of operation, OFF, FLASHING, and ON.
SECURITY TELLTALE will be off if:
?€¢
Ignition is in the OFF position


?€¢
Ignition is in the RUN, START, or ACC position and security system diagnostics have all PASSED

SECURITY TELLTALE will be on if:
?€¢
The BCM is performing a bulb check at vehicle start


?€¢
Security system diagnostics have not yet completed at vehicle start


?€¢
A security system diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is set in the BCM or PCM

SECURITY TELLTALE will be flashing if:
?€¢
The tamper hall effect sensor has been triggered


?€¢
Incorrect passlock sensor data to BCM for more than 5 seconds during vehicle start


?€¢
No passlock sensor data to the BCM for more than 5 seconds during vehicle start


?€¢
Incorrect password from the BCM to the PCM after 5 seconds during vehicle start

Give some tips on buying accessories for Car alarm Security systems


To gauge present and future needs, the consumer should carefully examine all of the options and include features that they might not necessarily need now but could later. For instance, the glass breaking sensor may not make sense for someone who parks and drives their car in a low crime area, but they may take their car on vacation sometime where the risk of breaking glass is higher. People with factory installed security systems can also upgrade their alarms with additional features like added sensors and engine shutdown if the alarm goes off. While buying a car alarm from retailers or online may take a bit of searching and comparing options, it is time well spent to protect one's investment and family. Additionally, the alarm will pay for itself over time in savings from insurance. Finding a car alarm is easy on eBay as it makes it easy to search and choose reliable sellers.

What are the different types of home alarm systems?


There are two types of home alarm systems, the wireless home alarm system and the hard wired home alarm system. Wireless home alarm systems are the most common these days with many of them having a simple do it yourself installation. Hard wired home alarm systems are still around and still used, however. Wireless home alarm systems are much simpler to install and much easier to maintain. (www.prweb.com)

Is it worth it to get a home alarm system or can I just install one of those DIY ones?


I think its worth the money. DIY systems are not so reliable and you always have false alarms-stressful. If you don't want to spend money, buy a fake alarm system box online. Then it just looks like you have an alarm system which should scare off any burglars.

How is a wireless system different from a hardwire security system?


Wireless systems are much easier to install. It really depends on the place you want to secure. Two-story homes are ideal for wireless due to installation ease. On the other hand, one-story homes and business may be more suitable to hardwire systems. There is no difference in the operation.

Non stop trouble beeping every 30 on my simon 3 security system


Two separate problems: Sensor failure and phone communication failure. Most likely, you've not been hooked up to a phone for a while but the system didn't know until it tried to transmit to the monitoring center that you removed a cover on a sensor.

I can tell you how to turn off the panel beeps, "beeps" not only includes the trouble beeps that are driving you crazy, but also the beeps letting you know it's counting down, either when you've just armed it or when you come home right before the alarm sounds.

Open the cover and enter your code using the red numbered buttons inside there. It doesn't beep when you press buttons, so press them well. When you've done it right, it will tell you to choose from the Start Menu. Choose "DELETE". Then, from the Main Menu, choose "OPTION #". Then press DONE. You have now turned off beeps. You haven't fixed anything and that sensor still isn't working but it's not beeping to get your attention now. Press SYSTEM STATUS two times to hear it tell you what's going on.

To turn beeps on again, open cover, enter code and choose ADD > OPTION # > DONE.

GE Simon 3 Add or Change a Sensor to my system?


You need to use an installer code to add/remove sensors. Depending on what number of digits your alarm code is set for will determine the number for the intaller code. Look in the installer manual for the code. Then follow these steps:

Open the panel.
Key in installer coe
Select Add
Select Sensor/Remote
Activate the sensor you want to add. Some sensors have a button, some have to opened to activate.
Choose sensor name and group. Groups are listed in the manual. Basically, if you want the sensor to arm when the doors arm (such as for a window sensor or door sensor) put it in group 10 or 13. If it's a smoke sensor, group 26; motion detector, group 17 and keyfob, group 01.
Press done when finished and run the test to make sure the system is reading the sensor.
