Your problem is being caused by the GM Passlock security system. It basically monitors your ignition keyswitch to determine if it has been turned without the proper key inserted. However, this system can begin to operate erratically as the vehicle ages (and the keylock cylinder has been turned numerous times). The owner's manual recommends calling GM roadside assistance for immediate help, or taking the vehicle to a GM dealer for repair. This system can be (and must be) overriden when installing a "remote start" system on your car. I know folks who have purchased the override module just for the purpose of removing the security feature due to its erratic operation.
read up on the system and check all the basics... everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a SHOP manual available in the reference section--make copies of the right info and read up..you'll be a pro in no time ...good luck:)
it might be the chip in the key. i know it does it in later model cars.
It means the security system is armed.
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 blinking red light in the dashboard is an indicator that your anti-theft security system is armed and working.
Security system deterrent.
To let you know the system is armed.
That is normal operation.
Yes, the blinking securtity light will blink when the car is off.
Possibly a security system activation light.
That light indicates the security system is working properly.
The security light on a 2001 Chevy Astro Van can be reset by disconnecting the battery for 30 seconds. This resets the system and turns out the light until another problem is detected.
blinking red light
This is the light for your security system. Shows that it is working.
It sounds like an anti-theft indicator light. The blinking light means that the security system is active and is functioning properly.
change the blue box maybe.
The security light will blink when either door, hatch, or hood is opened and will continue blinking until it is closed. Check all 4 switches for proper operation. If the bad switch is disconnected it should turn off the light. If the security light is on constantly instead of blinking that is to let you know that the alarm system is activated and should turn off after a few minutes.
That is perfectly normal. It keeps theives away and is a security light.
The security light flashes when a programed key is not installed in the ignition, when you insert a programed immobilizer key in the ignition the security light will go out, the light flashes as a theft deterrent
The red key light is for a security system (if your bike has one installed). When the red key is blinking, the security system should immobilize the starter.
gage of temperature go to hot position but is not hot the engine check gages light come on
Blinking red light signifies alertness or danger.
I heard it was meant to look like a security system.
The vehicle probably has a security system installed. Many security systems have a blinking light to deter thieves from stealing something from the vehicle or stealing the vehicle itself..
brake light on dash blinking
Need to know which light is blinking.
