STARTING DISABLED REMOVE KEY
Refer to Theft Systems Description and Operation in Theft Deterrent
STARTING DISABLED REMOVE KEY
The radio illuminates the STARTING DISABLED REMOVE KEY message when the VTD system has disabled the starting system. The radio receives a message from the theft deterrent control module via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.
Your best bet have it towed to a qualified repair shop .
The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent control module. When an ignition key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and the ignition is switched ON, the transponder embedded in the head of the key is energized by the exciter coils surrounding the ignition lock cylinder. The energized transponder transmits a signal that contains its unique value, which is received by the theft deterrent control module. The theft deterrent control module then compares this value to a value stored in memory, learned key code. If the value is correct the theft deterrent control module sends a random generated number to the transponder, this is called a challenge. Both the transponder and the theft deterrent control module perform a calculation on the challenge, if the calculations match the theft deterrent control module sends the fuel continue password via the serial data circuit to the Engine control module (ECM). If either the transponders unique value or the calculation to the challenge is incorrect the theft deterrent control module will send the fuel disable password to the ECM via the serial data circuit. The components of the VTD system are as follows:
• Theft deterrent control module
• Engine control module (ECM)
• Ignition key (Transponder)
• Ignition lock cylinder
• Security indicator
Will do you no good. Even if you turn it off, you cannot start the car without an original key. You need to get hold of your spare key or get one made to start it. These keys has RFID immobilizer chip that has to programmed on the car to make the on board immobilizer recognize it.
Turn the key to the start position, but dont start. Wait for lights to stop blinking and push the brake pedal down a few times, light should flash again, turn ignition to off and remove key, exit car and lock doors, use key to open door and then try to start it. Good luck.
Hello:Try this procedure: turn key on, turn to start, let key come back to on wait ten minutes, turn key off wait 10 seconds turn key back on wait 10 minutes. turn key off wait 10 seconds turn key back on wait 10 minutes turn key off wait 10 seconds NOW try and start. In addition you might try tapping on switch assembly while trying to start. There is not any way to disable passlock. You might try having the engine control system codes read
6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.
7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.
8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second
9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle
confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and
9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.
You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works
Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent system. The system is armed once the key is removed from the ignition. Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is turned with a valid key. If a correct key is not used, fuel is disabled. You may also want to check the fuse or circuit breaker, and see your Oldsmobile retailer for serviceif you get it started. You can disable the security! if you like. take off the cover to the steering column. look on the passengers side of the column and you will see 3 small 20 gauge wires, yellow, white, and black. cut the yellow wire. problem solved! security is now disabled. your security light on the dash will stay on all the time now when running but isnt that better than paying hunderds of dollars for maybe nothing? I know this works cause i had to do it on my 97 achieva. Good luck
