The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM. (Theft Deterrent Module) The TDM is what tells your computer that the correct key is being used and that it is "OK" to allow the vehicle to start and run. These 3 parts must be in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending important signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, (normally due to a failing/broken part) the car goes into antitheft mode. The car misinterperates this and thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is NOT getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. So basically, if that light is on, your system has some sort of failing part. This can start as an intermittent "no start", to your vehicle not running for days at a time, to the vehicle NEVER starting again. The problem is electrical and computer based, so don't count on an easy reset button, or the problem fixing itself. The hard part is isolating which part is the problem. You can spend a thousand dollars through a mechanic very easily. I have had great luck with bypassing the entire system. This way the problem will never return. It actually CAN'T ever return because it is eliminated. This can also be done yourself at a much cheaper cost. Read through this link very carefully. You'll find alot of information and pictures, along with ways to help you fix this.

Hello lysiphlebus2,

((My thoughts: cold START valve IAC at very bottom))

Plenty of places will do FREE diagnostic code reads.

I would rather suggest it be a muffler shop than
AUTOZONE... but either is better than guessing.

AUTOZONE will likely make you buy OXYGEN
sensors... (but that makes about as much sense as
buying a new THERMOMETER every-time you
have a FEVER.

What you are describing sounds (from an old
mechanic's perspective) like a collapsing
catalytic convertor or rotted muffler baffle
(a slightly better blockage will halt operation
completely)...

((again speculation... get your codes read))...

Do not buy OXYGEN SENSORS....

Know your prices before waltzing into any
exhaust shop.

sounds like the shocks are done. Air lifting shouldn't make it more bouncy - bad shocks do that. Also you should check out the bushings that hold the rear wheels on and in place. If the rear shifts side to side when it bounces is may not only be the shocks are done - rear wheels could be going out of 'alignment' from their normal resting place and 'steering' the rear end from side to side.

Buying a lemon is a real risk at auction and lots of professionals get caught so don't feel too bad - as long as the price was right and you learn from your mistake.

The horn circuit probably has a problem. Unless wind-tones are fitted the horn circuit is fairly simple and if it isn't possible to sort it simply then simply rewire it.

There are basically two circuits and it is important not to confuse them. The traditional circuit uses a two terminal horn with a supply to one terminal and the other going to a horn push that simply grounds the circuit to sound the horn. In the case of twin horns there might be a relay involved.

In the other circuit the horn push is a switch that provides a supply to the horn that might have a single terminal and internal grounding or it might have two terminals and a separate ground and again a relay might be involved.

In the case of twin horns there is a high note and a low note tuned so the total noise is greater than double the noise a single horn makes.

Your flywheel may have broke or the crank could have broke. If the crank broke the engine is done. Try to turn the engine over by hand. You can put a socket on the crank pully bolt and try to turn it.make sure the key is off and out of the ignition. Sorry for your loss.

Is there power at the compressor? If not, check the level switch located at the rear of the vehicle (connects the rear axle to the body via a small arm that moves with body up/down motion)

Replace air filter if you have trouble using car, Check your owners manual and see if your vehicle has this fuse (ETCS) Electronic Throttle Control System fuse. Replace if blown, if no book the dealer should tell you what u want but ask to speak to part depatment i find them easier to deal with good luck.

Most likely it's threaded on. Pull the selector all the way down, First gear. If there are any screws they will be visible then. If not, twist off
