How can you reset the security system on a 2005 Buick Terraza? The Van will not even roll over but yet have power.

Do you have a security light/warning on or flashing when you try to start it?

What led up to this and what have you tried or checked?

It sounds like you are causing some of your own problems by pulling fuses out.

You will need a professional scan tool to access the factory side of the system and see what it has for codes.

It's my father inlaws van, I guess the cruise control quit working, which is why he pulled fuses out. He just bought it a few days ago.

You don't test fuses by removing them. You use a test light and test both ends of them while they are in place. You can end up causing modules to lose their memory/programming.

I guess he is going to call the dealership tomorrow and see what he can do. Thanks for your input, hopefully he gets it figured out......

Back to first post. "Security System" - Owner's manual should discuss that but why do you suspect that? I have no exact clue but would think info on it would have come with it new and possibly just stuck the procedure in the glovebox.

As Hammer Time just said - pulling fuses you are likely resetting things and if it wasn't some "security" issue just might be now even if not the original reason it won't crank? "Rollover!" I get the idea but to me that means something like going way too fast on a corner and the vehicle rolls over!

I don't know what or how the "security" system is supposed to work in every vehicle made. I would hope it wouldn't crank at all to save the starter at least and probably flash headlights (maybe horn that got annoying) to attract attention.
