The Security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars 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). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterperates this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.

SOURCE: my security light is on

leave the key in the ignition, turned to 'run' (just before the crank position) and leave it there for about 15 minutes-the security light will then stop flashing-do NOT turn it off, turn it to crank and start the car. You have a security module that is not seeing the same resistance in the ignition switch as it expects, meaning you will have to either replace the ignition switch (expensive) or bypass the module (easy and inexpensive)-I have done lots of these, requires about 15 cents worth of parts and can be done in 1/2 hour.

My blazer will start but wont stay running long and the security light is on too and this after i put a new motor and trans in it it has been sitting over a year so i was needing help


By switching out the motor, you have most likely interrupted the antitheft system. The security light proves this. The engine starts, looks for the proper key code, doesn't see it, shuts down the injectors. There is a way to bypass this. Read thru this web page. Should find everything you need to know.

I have a 2000 chevy vernture warner bros edition i just hooked up a new cd player in my van and now it wont start and the security light is flashing can someone help me plz


was the factory's stereo what you removed? if so it has set a security code. you can try resetting the security system. STEP ONE: turn key to start position and let it come back to run position. STEP TWO: let the key stay on in the run position until the security light stops flashing.STEP THREE: once the light quits flashing turn key off then repeat steps one and two again. note: it may take up to 30 minutes to complete the reset process, after third time the van should start if not you may have to take it to the dealer to have the BCM reprogrammed.

My chevy blazer wont start after having the security light on for a few days


If you left the security light on it probably killed your battery. You will need to jump start your vehicle or charge your battery as well as turn off your security light.

2000 Chevy Blazer Won't Start


You can check the manual that came with the Remote starter.
If you do not have one try look it up on line.
You can try call the people that install that kind of remote starter.
Some started do a lot more than start your car and the only way to know is to look at the manual.
You are trying to find out if it is has a ignition kill command.
