Having problems with your 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix ?

Security light flashing, does not turn over, do i replace ignition or ecm or both? Do i need new key if i replace ignition? I went to work car started fine. Then went to start the car and go homeand the car would not crank over and the security light comes on, the radio starts but the engine does not start. A friend said it is the transponder in the key and to get the dealer to check the code and cut a new one. Should that not work is there another logical explanation? Thank you

I have a 95 Lesabre. I was doing errands, stopped car, came out of store and tried to start car. The engine didn't turn over. All lights on dash came on when I turned key on and all went off when I turned key off, except the security light. Even with key off it stayed on. I was trying to call someone for help, when the security light went out. I tried to start again and it turned right over. A friend told me I might need to replace ignition key. What do you think?


Hi,The ignition lock cylinder is most likely the problem. It has the sensor that rears the key inside of it. The cylinder has two wires that come off run down the bottom of the steering column. This is where you are going to splice the re ... 1995 Buick LeSabre

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy sedan. 2 days ago, I blew the fuse for the dash lights. I replaced the fuse, I turned the car, it sparked and blew the fuse. So I replaced the fuse again, it worked fine, with no problems. Yesterday, I went to drive and the dash lights were not working, and neither were the tail lights (brake lights were good). The fuses were all fine. Today I went to start it, and the engine wont turn over. I get the beeping noise of the key inserted and door open, but the engine doe

Our 2001 Jeep Wrangler had a dead battery and a starter issue. The battery was replaced, but now the security system won't operate and the starter can't be replaced until it does since disarming the security system is necessary to turn on the car. After fiddling with the key that disarms the system, the light turned green (it usually turns red when the system is disarmed. The car still won't start, and we are wondering why the light turned green and what to do to get the system working withou

I tried both factory-given remote keyless entry and couldn't get in my locked Hyundai Elantra GT. The lights on the fob blinked rapidly but didn't make the car lights blink and the door open. I opened the door with the key. No alarm. Tried to start the car. No response. No alarm. Went to Radio Shack and replaced the batteries on the keys. Didn't work. Can I override the keyless entry so I can start the car and eventually get it to a dealer? The car's been great. I had some timing belts repla

Vats system I have a 95 firebird. About three weeks ago, I tried starting the car, and the security light was flashing. The car wouldn't start right away. When I tried it the third or fourth time, it worked. On Sunday, another firebird with a Keyless entry remote parked next to us. (we don't have a keyless entry).

Flashing light I recently bought a 2005 saturn ion. When I went to leave work tonight I turned the key and then I saw this flashing light it looked like a picture of a car with a lock threw it. It seemed like it was some kind of anti theft or security problem because the radio came on and all the dash lights came on but the car didn't even attempt to turn over when I turned the key. I left it for about 10 mins came back and it started right up. Do you know why this would happen. I have no owners

We have a Dodge Caliber and when we went to start the car all the dash lights came on but the engine would not crank at all. Tried to jump battery, nothing. The doors would not lock or unlock with the key bob. Checked the fuses and when I removed then replaced the fuses for the IOD Sencor the car started right up, and the key bob worked to lock and unlock the doors. We all so have a problem with the dash lights going on and off while driving if we hit a bumb just right.

This has been an ongoing issue for the last 2-3 years now. First the car would all of a sudden not start. We'd wait 10-15 minutes then try again and it would start. It began happening more frequently. We had a new key made thinking the old one was too worn. The problem went away for about 2 years. Recently the car would not start at all. It would turn over, but not start. The fuel pump has been replaced (it was replaced when these issues first started 3 years ago). The security light fla
