Usually you can pull the negative battery cable off and keep it off 2 minutes then put it back on and this resets everything. If the light stays on after that you may have something else going on.

Sincerely,

I ust replaced the ignition switch on my 1999 Olds Alero and it still won't start what is with the 1999 Alero i have $500.00 in this car and it still gives nothing but problems


The alero was one of the most troublesome cars GM ever made. That sucks, I know. But the good thing is that the security has been such a problem that people have found ways around it. Go to this link for a ton of info and a good permanent solution to your problem.

I have a 2001 Olds Intrigue that won't start every once in a while. When it won't start the security light flashes so GM told me it was the passcode and I would have to change the ignition switch...


you can not bypass the security in that car, it is built into the main computer, they have problems with the ignition switch screwing up and the only way to start it while the light flashes is to turn the key to ON but don't crank engine, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes until light goes out then start car.

Ignition keeps going into security car starts then stalls and security idiot light flashes


ignition switch problems on these cars are notorious, you can bypass the anti-theft module by placing a resistor inline so that the module 'thinks' the correct key is not an attempt to steal the car. the anti theft is located behind the glovebox and the resistor costs 15 cents at radio shack, not as hard to do as it sounds and it fixes it for good.

YOUR IGNITION KEY IS WORN OR IGNITION SWITCH KEYLOCK CYLINDER AND BCM IS FAULTY.THIS WILL CAUSE CAR TO GO IN SECURITY ANTI THEFT MODE.THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX AND REPROGRAM CAR TO CRANK.
