Not sure I follow your question. The security module is built into the instrument cluster and is synced to the engine computer.

    Something is missing then. If you have power to the starter and it is new, it should crank the engine. You have power on the big and small terminals when the key switch is in the start position ?

  • Jackie Cooper Jun 27, 2013

    yes i have power on both ends

    If you have battery power on the large terminal, and power on the small terminal from the key switch, and a good ground, it should crank. Have you checked the engine to see if the crank will turn by hand ?

  • Jose Three Aug 21, 2013

    It sounds to me like your battery doesn't have enough power to crank the engine. Just because you can measure voltage at the terminals doesn't mean there will be enough power to start the car. Measure the voltage drop at the terminals when you try to crank the engine. If it dips below 12V your pattery is kaput.

Car won't start Auto Theft Reset


Disconnect the battery and leave it for 30 minutes. This dissipates any power in the system and resets the immobiliser and the ECM.

How to reset anti-theft on a 2000 alero


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.
