This is a common problem on GM vehicles since the mid 80's. The antitheft security system is notorious for failing. This then locks out either the starter or fuel injectors. (injectors in your case) The hard part is finding out why and what part is failing. The SECURITY light flashing is a "tell tale" sign of this problem and can ONLY be the security system. That is all that light is for. The cost to fix this system can be anywhere from 200 to 800 depending on the parts needed, plus mechanic trial and error along with hourly rate. You can fix this yourself with a simple bypass. Go to this link for info and DO IT YOURSELF solutions to this problem/

I brought a used 2002 Saturn Vue, the security light is on on my dash which makes my headlights and interior lights blink on and off rapidly. Can anyone tell me how to make it stop?

Are you sure this vehicles security system wasn't breached before you bought it? Some GM vehicles and saturn is a gm vehicle. Flashes lights and gives a security light on the dash when a car was attempted to be started without the proper key or improperly jumped which sometimes burns out fuses. I hate these cars too many electronic issues.

My Saturn vue 2002 does not want to work because it just starts but, than it stops like working than I just wait 10 min and it starts to work but I don't know whats going on?

It's the security system. You'll notice when you try and start it, if the problem is happening, the security light on the dash will be blinking. The remote won't reset the security system. You have to wait the full ten minutes and it can be very annoying. I think it has something to do with the driver's seatbelt switch. There is a double wire under the seat that goes to the seat belt buckle. Mine was cut and taped back together. I think the switch in the buckle gets dirty. Try squirting some WD-40 in the buckle. Also try to not be in too much of a hurry when you jump in and start it because that's when it happens, then you're gonna be ten minutes late anyway. I just get in mine, sit down, and wait a second before I try to start it. Haven't had the problem for some time now.

I have a 03 saturn vue and the security light comes on and off the dash lights do the same what could this be? and driving home tonight it died on me.

This is a common problem on GM vehicles. This security light indicates a failure in the antitheft system that comes standard on your vehicle. It miscommunicates with itself and then shuts down the vehicle as a protective measure. There is no recal on this. The dealer wont help you. Go to this link for info and possible ways to beat this problem.

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.

I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
