Hi there. When the security icon shows up on the dashboard, a few common faults will cause the security light to remain on and the car not to start. The most common is a worn key, faulty key transponder, security module failure, or a wiring harness fault. Due to the fact that multiple issues can cause the anti-theft system to disable the ignition system, it’s a good idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection. This will allow them to determine whether the issue can be repaired by the mechanic or if the dealership will need to be involved.
