What could keep my coil from firing ? I have the Ignition control signal and 12v. while cranking over engine at the top primary wiring of coil. Can you help me get spark?

Sounds like the security system is causing your problem. Is the "security" light flashing? If it is, turn the key on, leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing. Now, turn OFF the key, turn it back to ON, and then crank it. It should start. If the security light starts flashing again, go through the process again until it starts. This is resetting the security system after the battery has died, battery has been changed, radio was changed, instrument cluster was removed and replaced, etc. Hope this works for you.

When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?

At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

How can I get the security light to turn off

To bypass the factory security would be difficult or car thieves would have a field day!

your best bet would be to get a replacement alarm key fob and disarm the vehicle that way!

Security System Failure After battery and fuel pump replaced

Reset the system, turn the key on then off then on and let it set for 10 minutes with the key on repeat and after 3 tries you will need the dealer to reset it or find out what is wrong. In the future whenever a battery is replaced alwayas have a back voltage source avail to keep the computers memories alive.

I try to start the car, and all lights on dashboard light, but the car won't start. I had a new battery installed.Recently when driving the car, a yellow security light came on. - My friend tried bypassing...

Exact same problem I had and this is was the only thing that worked: I tried the typical resistor tricks but that did not work and just wasted my time. This one will get rid of the entire security system.

1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue security light on/power only sometimes

first thing you need to do is unhook any wiring installation you did. It sounds as if you have running your power straight to ground. Somewhere you made a wrong connection.

You have also discharged your battery as part of connecting your power lead to ground.

Disconnect what wires you hooked up for the light system and then recharge the battery. Bill
