    "security" Light On?!!!

    my security light came on while i was trying to leave a restaraunt. the shifter will not shift at all and when i put the key in the ignition, i can spin the ignition freely with no resistance. my radio will come on and my windows roll down. nothing on my instrument panel works except the "security" light. help, i cant drive my car. i was told a number of things. the chip in my key may be messed up. the igntion switch may be bad. or someone tried to break in my car and only a dealership can reset the computer. what is the deal with the gm passlock???

    do a search for "vats". There's a lot of info on it. It could be the key pellet but more than likely it's in the ignition tumbler. You can try either your spare set of keys or I tried cleaning my key pellet with an eraser but it didn't help. I just bypassed mine. Really easy and cheap to do.

    This is a pretty good article on the PassKey II system thats in your car. Hopefully, it'll help you as much as its helped the other folks I've shown it to...

    A replacement cylinder and key @ Autozone should be in the $60-70 range, then all you need to do is install it! (which is no easy task btw)

    Until you get it solved you can still drive the car just wait for the light to go out [about 3 mins] and the car should start.
