SOURCE: security system shut car down

man these buick dealerships are making a killing nowadays, the keys have a chip in them that helps a sensor in the steering column recognize that those are the right keys for that car, it's an anti-theft device that sometimes backfires, usaully the culprit is a damage chip in the key, because keys get thrown around and mashed up with other keys in peoples pockets, the key it self is not cheap but it is cheaper than replacing steering column. Get a new key and see if that helps, they should have provided you with a new key if they replaced the steering column and the sensor inside of it. I think dealerships aren't making enough money selling cars in this economy and are making frivolous repairs that don't help fix problems and charge a lot of money in the process

SOURCE: car starts and diesimmediately

need more info. but did you check fuel pressure? key on engine off. to you hear the pump, it will come on for about 3 secounds then stop, thats normal. If you hold the pedal down very slight to open trottle will it stay runing? if so min. idle is off, may need to clean trottle bore. cHECK THIS EASY STUFF FIRST. DONT ALWAYS TRY TO FIND THE PROBLEM IN ONE SHOT. ITS BEST TO FIND OUT WHATS NOT WRONG THIS WAY YOU DONT HAVE 10 DIFFERANT PEOPLE TELLING YOU TO TROW PARTS AT IT. remember, your freind may have had a problem like your with his car but dont bet its always the same thing wrong with yours. i worked foe saturn 1992 2006

I have a 2002 chevy pickup, lost the key, put a new steering column,will crank up and run for 10 seconds then die. I spray gas in the throttle body and it stays running as long as I'm spraying gas.


If you lost the key and you have passlock security system, the key is just a mechanical key. It's the key cylinder/tumbler that communicates with the passlock system. No need to replace steering column. Just my opinion.
You could get a locksmith to make you a key that will work or get a key from local dealership. If the key is the problem? The key has no pellet and no transponder.
Is there a security system lamp on the dash that is on or flashing? Any applicable trouble codes?
There is a relearn procedure, 10 minute segments, about three segments for a total of thirty minutes. Did you do the thirty minute procedure? Ok the make is a chevy, I don't know the model, may not matter?

99 mercury cougar I lost my key. I replaced my steering column with another steering column with key. My car wont start so what do I do next.


The problem is with the factory security system; you'll need to reset the security code matching between the security system and the code on your keys that came with the new column.

Rekeying the ignition


Without the key to turn the barrel into the release position you will probably discover you need to replace the complete steering lock assembly. I am not familiar with your model but that is the way things generally go.

In order to change the lock it isn't unusual to have to remove the complete steering column. Most late model vehicles are equipped with a passive immobiliser system in addition to any other security system fitted. This usually requires the use of a key with a coded transponder embedded that matches the code in the vehicle management system memory.

How to resest a security light on buick 2002


security light comes on if the chip in your key isn't reading.. Possible issue are the pickup in the key cylinder is getting old and weak. a resistor that matches the reading of your key can be added to the bottom of the steering column where the orange wiring goes into a two pin connector and it will allow yo o bypass the security so it will start

Security light flashing, does not turn over, do i replace ignition or ecm or both? Do i need new key if i replace ignition?


Chances are the wire going to ignition broke allowing the security to start flashing.this will keep the
car from cranking.On my 93 bonneville I went to Radioshack and got a 680 ohm resister,cut the 2 small
yellow wires on lower steering column under dash,soldered resister to the 2 yellow wires coming from harness.Cost of repair..$1. you can read the resistance on the key by using ohm meter on each
side of chip in key
