The security system shuts the whole car down so that it cant be stolen.

Sometimes you can reset the security light on a Monte Carlo. Open all the doors and then lock them and close them. Next, use the key to unlock the front driver's side door. If this doesn't work, the car should be taken to a mechanic who can diagnose the problem. When the security light goes on, it can mean something in the security system is failing.

The light may turn on due to uncleanliness of the start key. For this reason, it must be cleaned.

you're breaking and entering!....... its suppose to but it goes off after a while.

Changing the brake light switch in your Chevrolet Monte Carlo is quite simple. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.

To replace fog light bulb of Monte Carlo you must remove the entire assembly. Replace the bulb that has been hindered and replace the assembly.

It could be you're alarm if you have one. Or it might also be that the sensor for the alti-theft isn't working. I have a remote starter in my 1996 Monte Carlo and they had to by-pass the alti-theft and that is why mine is on.

No it does not, atleast not the 97 SS

kind of had same problem but turned out to be something else but a guy who had a Monte Carlo pulled up to us and told us if our problem was the security light to turn on the ignition to the on position do not start car and leave for 10 minutes and then turn off and then try starting car and that should reset the security light he said it happened to him and that is what Chevy told him to do and it worked for him.

Any time a warning light on the dash board comes on, it is an indication of something being wrong. It's a very simple concept. The lights are there to let the driver know that there is a problem.

It should be in the fusebox with the rest of the fuses.

get the computer scanned to find out what the problem is.

More than likely it has a bad magnet in the ignition switch you need to replace the switch and then relearn the security system

The security system prevents unauthorized operation of the car, your system has been tripped, and the car disabled. You will need to reset the security system to start it. If you have the original key you should be able to do it.

The GEN light is supposed to light up when the car is started as an indication that the light is functional. If it remains on after the car is started, however, your generator (alternator) is either malfunctioning or not working.

Very possible a door switch is defective.

the wiring is probally defected or the light is burned out

The tool required to pinpoint diagnose the ABS issues in the 1995 Monte Carlo Z34 is a $4000 diagnostic tool. The garage will charge you $100 for the scan.

The problem with the Monte Carlo is in the Security system itself I own a 2001 SS and it use to do the same thing. The security system does not recognize the key, when you use the key pad to enter the car. The only way I got it to work correctly was to Stop using my key FOB (remote). If you have the problem where your vehicle will not start, Get out, put the key in the door with it closed and turn the key to unlock for 10 seconds. It tells the car that the key was used to open the door not the key FOB. Monte Lover.

have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

instrument cluster is shorted out or corroded
