Okay, so I would bet that this has been asked already, but I have been looking through and reading threads for over 2 hours now and am looking for a solution.

I just installed a remote start/keyless entry on the ol' 99 GAGT. I installed a passlock bypass with it, but I'm not sure if it is working right. When I start the car normally, there is no problem. When I use the remote start, the security light comes on when I put the key in the ignition and press the brake pedal. That only happens after it has been remote started. Then, after I start driving, the "service engine soon" light comes on as well.

I haven't had any difficulties with starting or anything, but I don't want problems in the future. If this has been asked before, please refer me to the thread. thanx.

The security light comes on for me after remote start also. There is a reason for that and it is supposed to. As for the SES that may be a different problem, hopefully someone else maybe able to shed some light on that one.

So the SES thing might just be coincidental(sp?) that it happened after the system was put in?
