Hello. I have the stated truck. The "Security" message came on while driving the other day. When I turned off the truck and started it, the message went off. This happens periodically, but not all the time. It can go days without coming on. Any ideas? Thanks.

it is possible that the security light is coming on because the security system is detecting something unexpected in your ignition key cylinder ....

that may sound wild to you, but I had this issue with my '02 Impala ... and someone convinced me that the issue would be worse if my key ring was big and heavy with a ton of other keys swinging away as you drive... this causes the issue in the key cylinder

if you normally use a big heavy key ring, then try driving with a light key ring ... only 1 or 2 keys on it... and see if that makes any difference ... it did for me..

if the damage in the key cylinder is already done ... the lighter key ring may help, but maybe not totally eliminate the security light issue

Good Luck

Try blowing out the lock cylinder with some of that computer (bottled air) cleaner too...

Just bought the truck last month. I lightened my key ring. Hasn't come on yet. Got my fingers crossed. Thanks for your help.
