Customer Question

The security light in the dash comes on and stays on.. when it does the car will not start until the light goes off,Sometimes it will do it 4 or 5 times before the car will start.Takes about 3 minutes every time before the security light goes off before yu can try to start it again.What could be causing this.Is there a way i can just un hook the built in security feature to fix this problem?

When it comes up on the dash board,it just has the word security lit up in red.I timed how long it stays on before it will go off and let me try to start it again and it takes exactly 3 minutes before it goes off each time.It is really frustrating because i have to do it 4 or 5 times before it will finally start up.It has made me late for my job and it is really embarrasing.Especially when it does it at a gas pump and i have someone waiting behind me to get gas.PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS CAUSING THIS AND IF I CAN SOMEHOW UN HOOK A WIRE OR SOMETHING TO GET RID OF THIS SECURITY FEATURE SO MY CAR WILL START EVERY TIME WITHOUT THIS PROBLEM ANYMORE.THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Copy and paste that link. If you are good with electronics then this should make sense. If not then take it to a best buy or alarm shop. They will know what you are talking about. It is very common.
