Security lamp will not turn off.
so the other week I was going out to lunch while at work and my SECURITY light came on, usually that means my key is not the full way in the ignition, I went to push it in and it already was... weird. since then that light has not gone off.
It is not the goofy dongle in the trunk, as I disabled that a long time ago.
and to make things stranger I cut a small piece of electrical tape and put it over the chip on my key, and the car still started just fine.
Then I used my brand new key for a day, no change
now that I have the car back I'd like to get this resolved before it decides to leave me somewhere.
my initial guess is something in the ignition cylinder is broken. I may read out the resistance of the key and do the resistor mod to see if that fixes things. Am I on the right track or is there something else I am missing?
