Security system on 2000 eclispe GT
\015 Mom has a 2000 eclipse gt. She has locked the keys in the car on Thursday. She was able to get into the car it ran fine. Then she started it Friday morning and her lights where flashing and her car would just die every time she slowed down. She tried using the key on the doors, took the battery cables off and her lights stopped flashing. But every time you slow down for a corner or just let off the gas the car dies. This all started after she locked her keys in her car. Please help we cant figure out what's going on. Its a manual v6 with the 3.0 Thank you for your time.\015

Had ignition switch replaced and within 4 mtns,it went out again.The mechanic said the security system sensor was burning out the switch so he un-hooked the wire to the security system and bypassed it and it will start but car runs very rough,idles fast and transmission shifts hard.Could un-hooking the security system,or will un-hooking the security system cause other problems.The vehicle is a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville with a 3.8 engine.Thanks,
The problem might be your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running, or start for 5 seconds and then die. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the pr ... 1994 Pontiac Bonneville

My 96 Mercedes E300 Diesel won't start after 3 days of not being driven. My car mechanic replaced the battery and reset the security system, but it did not fix the problem. Could the fact the rear view mirror assembly (which houses the security system) is loose be the source of the problem? The mirror shifts when I hit potholes or drive on bumpy roads and I'm wondering if it affects the security system. The security sytem is the only thing "on" in the car all the time. Any ideas?

My 1999 Chevy Truck 3500 with 5.7 L engine. It has Passlock II. While driving the Security Light came on and stayed on. Later my starter failed so had to disconnect the battery. Now Security Light stays on steady with ignition.on. It will crank and fire for less than 2 seconds. The Security System will not reset with the 10 minute procedure. What do you think is the problem?

I have a 1996 Saab Turbo. The security system will only activate using the remote, but not with the key in the driver's door. The remote does not seem to work consistently and I'm therefore relying on the key to lock the car. Locking in this manner does not seem to activate the security system. Should the key also arm the system like the remote does? I've not owned the car very long.

'89 Dynasty 3.0 security system? problem. I appropriately reset the security system (locked and then unlocked the driver's door) after recharging the battery, but now the engine won't fire. It acts like it is in "deep lockdown", even though the anti-theft module remained connected the entire time - before, during and after the recharge. It did this once before when I recharged the battery some time after I had properly disabled the system (removed the connector with the engine running), so I re
