Question about 1995 Buick Roadmaster
I just put in new steering column in 95 buick roadmaster. Everything went great, except I can't get it to start. It has power. The pass key light is on... what does that mean? Will it not start because it's a different chip in the key or what? How can I fix it?
That's exactly why it won't start. You can either switch the ingition lock back to the original one so you can use the right key. Or, you can sync the new key with the computer. To do this you or someone else will have to use a gm tech-2 scanner, snap-on modis or an otc genisys scanner. Your local dealer or good repair shop should be able to fix you up. Now, there is another way. The passkey system works on resistance from the chip. In you steering colum there is a 2-wire plug going to the ignition lock. If you pull it out of the colum and cut the plug off. You can pop the chip out of the original key and solder the wires to it. Just make sure you don't heat the chip up to much. After doing this you can use any $10 standard gm ignition lock instead of the expensive ones that use a chipped key.
