Did he use the correct steering column, one with factory anti-theft key? if so then the system has to be relearned for the key on the new column, does the security light flash when you try to start it?

Cadillac seville won't start


I've got an even cheaper and easier solution, instead of buying a new cylinder, find that plug and snip the orange wires going to the old cylinder.Then remove the resistor chip from the key and solder each of the the wires to each side. this will fool the car into thinking the correct resistor chip is in place, allowing you to use the original key or any copies with or without resistor chips. i just did this to my caddy and it roared to life! :)

did you see a wire wound ring around the back of the steering lock ??and the old one as well ?? no doubt the chip has been taken out of the key and taped up this ring .When you changed the column you didnt swop this chip over to new column .See if old column has this tiny thing taped to it just below the barrel of the steering lock .If iam right then tape it to the new column like it was on the old one and remove the chip out of the new key.

The steeing column in my 95 Olds Cutlass


does the key have a computer chip built into it. i think it does . if this is the case that,s your problem. the key has to match the computer in the car it,s programed from the factory like this. you either have to use the original ignition lock and key or get the lock in your new column keyed to your original key by a lock smith. than your car will start. good luck.
