The fuses are located in the covered fuse box under the hood. A diagram of the fuses is fixed to the underside of the cover.

when's the last time you did a full tune up? (air and fuel filter,plugs,wires, cap, rotor) or could be a number of things. i would look at the temp sensor. i believe when they fail, they peg out all the way cold or all the way hot. so your car thinks it is still cold, when you have reached operating temps, causeing your misfire. good-day !

It is located in the fuel tank.

Since your car says SECURITY, It can only be one thing. You have a failing antitheft system.

This is how it works.

Your key has a little black chip in the shaft. It is actually an ohms resistor.
It has a certain resistence. 1 of 15 different possibilities designated by GM

Your ignition lock cylinder not only works with the key, but also reads the resistence of that chip.

It then sends this reading to the TDM (theft deterrent module). If the ohms are right, and the ignition reads it right, and the TDM does its job, the car will start like normal. But if any of these things fail to do their job, the car goes into antitheft mode and you get the SECURITY light.

So you have a few options, try to find the failing parts, take it to the dealer to get fixed, or bypass the system.

this isn't a good idea to do this for safety reasons as the vehicle can be started in gear it is better to replace it if it is faulty, I'm not familiar with the rules & regulations where you are but here in Australia if I done that & caused an accident I would be in more trouble than a pregnant nun......hope this helps......cheers.

check your wiring harness that plugs into the coil pack and see if the wires are melted or showing. i have a 92 and the wires melted together and it was doing the same thing and it also could be your coilpack or your ignition control module (icm)

1992 Oldsmobile... | Answered on Sep 09, 2011

if the coil pack has a sticky substance oozing out it or take it apart to see if it smells burnt

I don't think a fuse diagram is what you need.
If you get under the dash and look up at the parking brake pedal assembly you might see a switch with one wire. Its a simple piece of metal that is a ground and it gets pushed off its contact by a nub on the brake mechanism. That switch may have come loose and is cust a constant ground or a plastic pin on the back of the switch which keeps it from turning could have broke off and it moved out of posistion.
