Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva
97 olds achieva sl - it will start but then it shuts off like there is getting no fuel. Is there a reset button or a collisio switch. Her boyfriend installed a remote starter and doesn't always work could that cause the problem
You just want to know what to do, not complicated **** about what might be causing it or expensive repairs that won't solve it or won't last. If "security" blinks on the dash it's the screwed up passlock security system causing it not to start or start but quickly die.
When the car won't start or quits because of passlock security system glitches "security" blinks on the dash. Don't try again until it stops blinking (about 10 seconds). You get 3 tries in succession before it locks up (thinks a theft is in progress). If that happens, you'll have to wait about ten minutes for it to stop blinking. After the long wait you'll get another 3 tries only waiting 10 seconds for "security" to stop blinking after the first two tries. Don't ever try to start with "security" blinking.

Make sure those 3 wires on the passlock sensor are good.That sensor is on the lock cylinder on the right side of the steering column. You may want to check the wires on the ignition switch also.(green,black).But I would look at the sensor 1st since that is where they hook up those remote starters as far as I know.
