my security light on my 01 impala stays on.and after awhile when i turn the car off i cant turn it back. i have to wait about 20 minutes for it to turn back on.i need help what can this possibly be?i have no idea.
I've had the same problem too on my old Imp. Take a quick look at the "common problems" sticky at the top of the forum and it should give you some pointers if you ever run into trouble. Pulled this from in there.
"Problem: Security light is on while driving or the car will not start
Likely cause: Something in the passlock system isnít functioning properly
Solution: Replace the ignition cylinder.
There's also some short term fixes if it won't start. Turning the key to the "on" position for about 10 minutes and leaving it there before attempting to start the car generally gets good results. Not always ideal, but it will at least get you to the shop instead of a tow bill. Good luck!!
there is a security pigtail behind the lock cylinder, that is most likely it not the lock cylinder itself. i just changed mine because i was having the same problems. its an easy install and part is on rockauto.com
