Mine comes on periodically too, and then the engine wont start. If you sit tight for about 5 - 10 minutes until the light stops flashing, the engine will start right up.
Sometimes my sons 2001 Grand Am does that. It has to do with the Security System. Turn the key to ACC the Security light will start blinking and will continue to do so for 10 minutes. At that time the Security Light will stay on. At that point you can start you car. This works for him Good Luck.
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.
94 camaro security light on car will not start
check to see if your security light is on i had the same problem (they all do ) put your key in the "on " postition and leave it for 10 minutes until the security light flashes off and then start your engine.
Your key is going out. It has a safety feature in it.
When your security light comes on and your car will not start, turn you key to the on position and wait 10 minutes. The light will go off and you need to turn the key to the off position, then restart your car.
Disable the security system by unlocking the hatch or driver's side door with the key.
The factory alarm causing the issue would be the security light flashing above the RPM guage. If the security light is flashing and the car will not start, follow the directions listed below. To reset the factory alarm, turn the ignition switch to the "on" position NOT the start position for 15min. You will see the security light go off after 15min.
if the light goes off it's probably the starter...
security light on 1998 s10 start but cut off
If your security light is flashing, then you have had what is referred to as a "bad timing cycle" with your Passlok security system. Turn the key to the ON position, and wait until the security light stops flashing - This takes exactly 10 minutes.If the security light WAS flashing, then the 10-minute trick is only a temporary fix - You will need to have your ignition switch replaced.
The security is keeping it from starting which is what it is supposed to do.
Not enough information regarding why the car won't start but as to he security light; it's always blinking when the engine is off.
The red light indicates a failure in the security system. It will not start with a failure.
security lock out had same problem with our 2004 grand am
On a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am: turn the key to the on position for 30 minutes or until the security light goes out. The car should start.
A bad starter can cause a Mercury Grand Marquis to not start. A bad alternator or a problem with the security system can be the cause for the car not starting.
Sounds like you need to buy yourself a new car, possibly a Vibe :)
security light keep flashing put new starter on still will not crank
there is no code, if you turn the key and try to start the car and the security light comes on do not keep cranking it because you will just waste the charge in the battery. turn the key like your starting the car to the position where the lights on the dash come on and let it sit for 10 minutes or until the security lite stops blinking then turn the key to off position and try to start the car.. it is really common on these piece of junk cars and if you have an after market key good luck because it will happen a lot and at the worst times possible
When the security light is on you can not start the car. It is a security feature that is designed to prevent a car thief to fail at stealing the car. Ensure the ignition key is clean, then make sure the black chip in the key is centered in key, ensure metal contacts on black chip are clean. Try starting car after security light goes out. A failed attempt will cause the security light to stay on for a few minutes, do not attempt to start car until security light goes out.
