So i hop into my car, go to start it and it kinda started for one sec, then went back to trying to kick over. Whole time the security is blinking. I get out and lock doors, the light still blinks. I get in, try to start it, the light keeps blinking. I switched keys and tried that, no go.


ANy help please?

My guess is it has something to do with the passlock. The engine won't turn over because passlock is engaged. I don't know why.

Put the key in the ignition for 10-20 minutes, or until the security light goes out. Dont try to start it, or do anything else, just put the key in the ignition.

It explains this procedure in your owners manual.

turn the key to access? Or just stick it in with no turning?

I think turn it to acc, but do what the manual says.

Got to leave the key in the ON position.

& while your at it (while waiting) to save your car battery: turn everything off & pull your parking brake (for no DRL or ALC)

Thanks guys, that seemed to work.

Why exactly does it do this?

your car is gonna keep doing that until you get your security system reprogramed. when the security light blinks you have to wait exactly 10 min for the light to turn off. sometimes it will blink again just wait another ten and try again its a pain in the a$$ ive waited at the gas station for 30 min one time cuz it tripped three times. if i were you i would take it to the dealer and get it reprogramed asap oh yea you dont have to leave your keys in the car you just have to wait for the ligh to stop blinking.
