What can you do if your security light sometimes comes on and the car will not start?

You turn the ignition on, leave it in the on position until the security light stops flashing. It flashes 6 times, then the battery light comes on, then the security light flashes 6 more times. You have to make sure it stops flashing and just stays on. Then you can start your car. PS: If the engine does not start, then turn the ignition off to reset and then try to start it immedately. If this does not work try it again. It eventually starts, but patience is the key factor here.

What does the scurity light in 2004 alero mean?

If you see the security light come on and stay on when you are driving, it means your "Passlock" system isn't working right. It happened to me once and then i couldn't start my car. It wouldn't even studder; it just made no noise. What i did was i read the manual and it says this: "During normal operation, the SECURITY light will go off about five seconds after the ignition key is turned to on and the engine is started. After attempting to start the engine, if the SECURITY light flashes or stays on, wait ten minutes with the key in ON until the light goes off. Then turn the ignition to OFF before attempting to start the engine again." So i waited ten minutes and sure enough it worked. I haven't had that problem since, though.
