95 Monte Carlo's are equipped with GM Passkey II. A wire runs from the computer up to the ignition switch and back to the computer (The 2 wires run into the steering column inside an orange shroud. The wire measures resistance from a resistor in the key. If you have a loose connector or if the resistor on the key is worn down... the computer cannot read the correct resistance and thinks the car is being stolen. If the computer cannot read the resistance at startup, it will disable the starter and fuel injectors for three minutes. The easiest fix (although it disables this security feature) is to measure the resistance in your key (the little chip on the part of the key that goes into the ignition) using a multi-meter, then buy a resistor from radio shack of the same reistance; then hook the resistor to the two small wires in the orange shroud underneath the dash going into the steering column (leaving the wires coming out of the steering column dead). This way, the computer always reads the correct resistance. If you're worried about losing your security feature, you can also place a toggle switch on the wire to disconnect the resistor when needed. mine goes off for everything. when my alarm was triped, when my ABS is messed up, when there is anything wrong with my car other then oil, gas or the brake light. for me its the catch 22 light. if you recently got in a fender bender it can be a pinched or severed wire were you were hit. That is why my ABS was inop, after i fixed it the light finally stoped bugging me. hope that helps give you an idea were to look, my owner manual actually had some good info in it for once! Frank
i have a 2004 chevy monte carlo and the service engine soon light is on what does it mean?
This is the light for your security system. Shows that it is working.
How do you take a rheostat out of a 2003 monte carlo
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.
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.
in the trunk
No it does not, atleast not the 97 SS
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.
chech the fuses......
check your break fluid.
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.
