Without the proper testing equipment an knowledge ( factory service info. ) You have no idea what's up . an don't have a chance of fixing this . Checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes is always the first step . Take's a professional type scan tool to read these codes. Serial data info from module incharge to PCM/ECM ,enable or disable fuel and or starter operation . Sends coded messages Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . That white component is the ignition switch .
The design of the passlock™ system is to prevent the vehicle operation if the proper ignition key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The mechanical key, in normal operation, will turn the passlock™ lock cylinder. The passlock™ sensor will relay the passlock™ data to the body control module (BCM). The BCM will determine the validity of the passlock™ data. The BCM will send a code password to the vehicle/powertrain control module (VCM/PCM). When the VCM/PCM receives the correct code the VCM/PCM allows the fuel injectors to operate normally. The passlock™ system requires the VCM/PCM and the BCM to communicate the various functions in order to operate. These functions transmit over the class 2 serial data line CKT 1807. For an explanation of the class 2 serial data operation refer to Data Link Communications Circuit Description in Wiring Systems

SOURCE: how do i bypass security on 98 gmc jimmy 4.3

I experienced this problem, intermittant failure to start. This procedure must be done with the truck RUNNING.

Remove the cover off of your ignition switch. On the top there is a small wire connector that, once the truck is running, should be disconnected. This will turn on the 'SECURITY' light. All will be better, except the security light will be on at all times, much cheaper than replacing the ignition switch, however.

SOURCE: 99 gmc jimmy sle keyless remote and security issue

Hi: From my experience the security issue is easily solved because hitting the factory key FOB lock button is the only way to activate it, hitting door lock button will not activate it. When installing a remote starter no wires are cut usually, just spliced into which means... make sure that where wires were spliced they are taped. If you have the original factory key FOB use a quarter and pop apart, replace the battery, key FOB should have retained its factory setting if your lucky, if doesn't work go to internet search and find programming procedure. Hope this helps... please rate suggestion...ty

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.

Problem with my 2000 GMC Jimmy, securty light is flashing not allowing me to start my truck' how can i disable the security' can i still cut the yellow wire even though I cant start it


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You can disable the alarm but you have to make sure it is the right wire and that you ground it. I would advise you to call the dealership and get the code to reset the alarm. Just make sure you have all your vehicle information with you when you make the call.

Where is the reset swich located


Hi, there are no reset switches, if your jimmy does not start, you need to check for fuel pressure,(55 psi),spark, and make sure there is no security light on. If the security light is on, there may be a computer issue causing a no start.Good luck...

repair that and the vehicle should start
