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). 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 misinterprets 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.

Nope...follow the path of the screws. Remove that screw you see and you should be able to remove the assembly and see the bulb.

Flashing check engine means shut off the car immediately, engine or catalytic convertor damage if you keep the car runnning . Never disconnect the battery from a running car it can fry the alternator. Sounds like a spark plug or ignition coil or ignition wire problem.

Take the line to a brake shop and have a new one made to the shape .Steel lines have an double flare and it this is not performed properly the line will again break at the fitting. This is a legal requirement from the transport authority.

There is no generator, only the alternator. You may be confusing a generator with a voltage regulator? In modern cars, the regulator is inside the alternator. It's all one piece. Be sure and take the negative battery terminal off before removing the alternator.

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the car's computer. The service engine light comes on when the computer has detected a fault in one of the car's systems. Most parts stores will perform the scan at no charge. Getting the codes will help identify what the problem/potential problem might be. Hope this helped and best wishes.
