Referring to the car that would not start after my son cleaned the car. Sounded like the security system was somehow preventing the system from starting. Turns out the TCM fuse was blown. =) Just to let all know and thank you again for the wonderful help!

Car will not start

The key under the dash may be bypassing the security system. And that trick may not be working anymore.
You would need to check the starter to see if you have power from the key switch in the start position. The neutral safety switch may have failed, or the security system may be preventing the engine from cranking.

2001 bravada, starting sometimes security prevents my car to start!

Had the same problem with a 1991 Corvette turned out I had to clean the metal chip on the side of the key with a finger nail file to remove build up. do this very gently and be sure not to remove to much. Also when this happens another solution if that is not the problem is toexit the car and use the remote to set the security system (lock the doors) wait five minutes and unlock the doors using the remote and try starting the car again, sometimes security systems are fussy and need to be reset in full security mode again to get the system working properly.

Need owners manual to see how to fix a problem with the security system. The key has a chip and somehow it won't start the car Mechanic thinks it is in the security system related to the chip in the key...

The chip is part of the PASS-II security system. It is designed to prevent engine being started with another key. It is part of the security system. When you insert key and turn the ignition to the on or start position, does the security light in dash panel flash? Unfortunately, there is no way to by-pass or turn it off. Also, the key and chip must be completely dry and clean. Contact your nearest GM dealership or a locksmith who can service the PASS-II system to get a new key. I had a 1995 Buick Regal with the same problem. I had to get a new key from the dealership. Let me know if this works for you or not. Thanks.

Car alarm would not shut off so I disconected the battery and now the car will not start. How can I solve this problem?

most likely make sure you have good connections when you reconnected it and check out your manual for the alarm(maybe in owners manual if alarm is stock) some alarms could disable your car and prevent it from starting and you will need to reset it somehow. maybe if it was disconnected long enough it would reset. But most likely the connections are bad from taking it apart sand them down tighten them up and maybe give them a shot of wd40 for good measure(it is supposed to absorb moisture).

Security light flashing and car won't start now

does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.
