Answer . \nYour security light does not reset, it comes on when your door is open and your key is not in the igition and it will continue to flash, even when doors are closed. This is GM's cheap way of looking like it has advanced security features.. but it doesn't, don't worry about it, it means nothing it, and it is meant to do that. Now if you want to reset your oil light, turn the ignition to the on position, pump your gas three times, all the way to the floor.

How do yo reset tire pressure monitoring system on 2008 Chevy Impala?

I'm gonna be honest... the best thing might be to take it in to a shop. I don't know about this condition!

What problem do you have when your security light comes on in your 2002 Chevy impala?

The Impala, as well as other GM models, have a passive theft deterrent called 'Passlock' which will prevent your car from starting if there was an attempted theft or other unauthorized entry into the ignition. However, this same system is prone to randomly and sometimes frequently engage itself even when the car is being used properly. Solutions: 1) If the car will not start or "crank", turn you key in the ignition to the 'on' position and leave it there for a minimum 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn the key to the 'off' position for two minutes. Now attempt to start the car. This is a built-in feature of the Passlock system to override the security lock. 2) If this does not work, you may need to have the car taken to a dealer (a regular mechanic will not be able to guarantee a fix). They will check for a diagnostic code, and if one is present which relates to this system, they will advise that you replace the BCM (Body Control Module), ignition cylinder, and the ignition switch. This will be around $800 depending upon your dealer and where you are located. Unfortunately, unless you systematically isolate each component, you may not know which part is actually causing the problem. However, the most likely culprit is a faulty ignition cylinder or a bad BCM. The BCM's are known to be "buggy". GM is well aware of this problem, but they will not issue a recall. Hope this helps a little.
