SOURCE: replaced ignition and steering wheel now car wont start -security light on

Hi......
On your Buick 94.
The problem is the ANTI THEFT SYSTEM..
If you have replaced the ignition switch.
If you are using a NEW KEY, the car won't start.
Because in the OLD KEY, is there a Resistence with a number of ohm's
The computer need the resistence to activate the the signals to operate the vehicle.
OK.. with the New Key and Old Key you can go to any Aloha Smith and they will remove the Chip from the Old Key to the New Key.
And the car must start and running.

But if you are using the Same Key that you have before the repair made.
I recomend to check the 2 Orange wires from the Ignition lock Cylinder to the steering column lower connectors.

Ok I hope this work for your problem.
Any moree info, I will glad to help you.
I'm a Mechanic and have all the repair information for all the cars.

Thank you for use fixya...

SOURCE: my ignition switch doesn't shut off. I can turn my

you will just need to replace the ignition switch itself.
should take you about 45 minutes to a hour to replace.
you will need a steering wheel puller and a compression tool to depress the compression plate to get to where the ignition screw is.
make sure you weight the cost of getting these tools and the cost of a new ignition switch - to - just having a automotive locksmith come out and replace the switch in about 20 minutes and a cost of about 85 dollars ( depending on where you live -- call around and ask for the price ).

SOURCE: when I try to start

If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.

2001gmc jimmy starts and stalls security light stays on


The security light has one job, it warns you that there is a "break" or "miscommunication" in your antitheft system. This is why the Jimmy keeps stalling. The antitheft system cuts the power to the injectors (It's thinking it is protecting itself from theft) and the vehicles stalls in 5 seconds or less after starting. They are also known to stall while driving. Followed by the security light. The SECURITY light will either flash or stay on solid. A solid light normally indicates a bad Theft Deterrent Module, this is the brain of the whole system. Go to this link, it has alot of info stuff that should help you out.

1998 FORD CONTOUR,ROUGH GETTING IT TO START, BUT DOES, SOUNDS SEMI-NORMAL ONCE IT IS GOING, DRIVES IN REVERSE NORMAL, BUT AS SOON AS IT IS PUT INTO A FORWARD GEAR (D,1,2) CAR DIES INSTANTLY, LIKE SOMEONE...


this sounds like a brake issue and usually the emergency brake..lift rear of car to see if the wheels will turn if one does turn .remove tire and loosen brake bleeder screw to see if you can release brake pressure.after that tighten bleeder screw and remove brake drum.if the wheel has disc brakes you will need to remove emergency brake cable if it is too tight to remove you need a new one anyway so take a hack saw and cut the cable at the brake unit

Security light on dash lit


i have this same problem. it has to do with the passlock security system that is factory installed. my system is cold weather sensitive. you go to start it and it will die. the security system then goes into stupid mode and its a 10 minute wait so the computer wont think your stealing your van ,then it will restart. sometimes it goes into another ten minutes if you try starting it to soon. security light flashing equals no start. solid security light equals ok to start. the system cuts power to the fuel pump. i live with it. it is managable but frusterating.
