Means there is a problem with the chip in the key or the security system on the car. The sensor in the lock reads the chip in the key.

SOURCE: 98 chevy lumina. Code 113, 102, 171. runs then

the code 113 is intake air temp cicuit, high input.
the code 102 is mass air flow volume air flow circuit, low input.
the code 171 is system too lean (bank 1)
I sure hope this helps you out. Dont sound like anything too major though

98 chevy lumina wont start replaced starter and VATS relay only get click no crank what next?


Hey Todd how's it going ? How's the battery ? battery connections ? Are there any lights lit on the dash , security , check engine ? Because your getting a clicking there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! Take a volt meter on the 20 volt scale an put negative lead at the negative battery post , then take your positive lead an put it on s terminal small wire on the starter solenoid an have someone turn the key to start position , you should see battery voltage . If you see battery voltage there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! or the crank circuit. You need to do a voltage drop test on the starting system ! I'm thinking possible battery cable ! Starter Voltage Drop . you do know that you replaced a starter for no good reason !

99 chevy lumina wont start and the secruity light flashes


This is a pretty common occurence in GMs. Go to this link, try the 10 minute quick fix. If that doesn't work, you'll be looking at taking it to the dealer, or bypassing the security system. You can bypass it yourself. Go to this link for info and "do it yourself" options. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Hi, you may want to bypass your steering column for the passkey system. There is a good procedure posted online that I have used successfully in the past. Please read this and let me know if you have questions.

I need to know how to reset the security light on a 1998 chevy lumina and will this keep it from starting if its been activated?


Looks like the TDM in the security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it can get worse till the car wont start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

99 chevy lumina wont crank!


you probably have a broken wire in the ignition that reads the resistance in the chip in the key. there are two wires that attach the ignition switch to the security system.I had the same problem and it can be easily fixed by putting a resister in place of the chip in the key.any garage that puts alarm systems in cars will be able to do this very easily and very economically.
