Security light... did you put the wrong key in the ignition or something? Or have you installed a new PCM recently (like just before this problem occured?)

Call the stealership... It's probably the passlock.

If you had the PCM unhooked you'll probably have to do the security relearn before it'll start again. I don't have the instructions for it in front of me, but it's fairly easy to do.

i know its been a while since i posted but last i talked to the dealership they said that when that light is on i need to take it to the dealership so they can unlock it and it is going to cost anywhere to 100 - 300 bucks....

I would call a few more and verify that answer...sometimes service writers don't know that much, really depends...

For the security relearn I think you try and start it, let it stay in the "on or run" position for 10 minutes, and repeat this 3 times and on the 4th time trying to start it it will start.....dunno if thats the problem your having but when I replaced my ECM thats what I had to do.

if youre passlock isnt working i thought it would roll over but no fuel would enter the system. if youre key doesnt match the program you might try putting the key in the ignition for i think 30 minutes(with bat charger) with key position on. good luck.
