It will not start and the security light is not on at all…

Customer Question
It will not start...

It will not start and the security light is not on at all and when I set my alarm with my key fob instead of chirping twice it only

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

When I first turn the key on the security light stays on solid until I try to start it then it goes out and stays out and no I have not tried to reset it because I do not know how

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2000 Pontiac Firebird Baseline 3.8 3800 Series 2 V6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Firebird yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am going to try and fix it myself because I'm kind of stranded out at a rest area

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope just to get my car to start so I can get warm
