Ok, first off do you have a chiped key? look on the side for a resistor symbl if yes try a spare key if you have one. secondly is the theft light flashing? third option turn the key to the on position wait 15 and try to start the car, if it is your security system this will sometimes deactivate it
i had tjis problem it is a security tking the car simply does not recognize your key thinks someone trying to steal solution turn key all the way to on as if starting let go wait 10 min when security light stops flashing and is steady turn key to off then restart note you have to wait the full 10 min if you dont car will not reset security and you will have to start over
I OWN a 2001 Olds Alero and the same thing happens to mine.. It's an easy fix.. 1. Turn the Key to ACC (keep it in this mode for the entire 10 minutes). 2. The security light on the Dashboard will flash for exactly 10 minutes.. 3. Once the 10 mins are over, the security light will stay solid.. Wait for the red light to disappear off the dashboard... YOU ARE NOW READY TO TURN YOUR CAR OFF AND RESTART YOU CAR....
if you turn the car to run is your security light staying on or flashing continusly.HEY THERE, this is what is called security mode. If you so much as disconnect the battery the system must be relearned. The manule way goes like this;put your key in ignition. putt a battery charger on it,at least 10 amp. charge. know turn the key as if you were trying to start it, as soon as you here the starter click let go of the key. let it sit with the key in the run position for at least 10-20 min. go get a coffee, then turn key off wait 10 sec,s start it. The security light will flash and then go out if you were sucsessful
im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.
Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys
