Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Security system-passlock 98 Oldsmobile Intrigue has about 150000 miles on it. Has always started fine but was towed a couple of weeks ago without the keys or my knowledge. When I went to pick the car up it was dead, it was assumed to be a dead battery so a new one was bought. The car sat for a couple more days and upon trying to start again the brand new battery was dead. Something is draining the battery. I think the security system was activated with towing, how do you disconnect that or over ride or something like that

How do you reset the passlock


1. Attempt to start the car, let it stall, but DO NOT turn the key off! Leave it in RUN.
2. Wait 10 minutes or until the Theft Sys light glows steady instead of blinking.
3. Do not turn the key off, but start it immediately.
4. This should reset your Passlock system.

If this doesn't reset the system then there is a "hard fault" and u will need to have the dealer scan the security system for faults.

Pontiac Grand Am passlock security A year ago my car wouldn't start and the security light was on. We had it towed to the dealer 120 miles away. It cost me $700 to replace the ignition, on October 4, 2008....


are you ever using a copied key? if you are, all hell can break loose with these systems. i dont know why, but some of these were more sensitive then others. only use your gm key. also, try having your car scanned for body control module codes, as the passlock system is built into it and there may be some underlying problems causing this.

150000 miles. loud poppng noise in passenger compartment


You may have an exhaust system that when it heats up or all the time is collapsing internally. It would be more apparent when warm. An easy way to check is to warm car up then have someone in the car and be at the back and hold your hand near the tailpipe. You will feel exhaust coming out at idle, now have the other person rev the engine and hold the idle up does the exhaust increase. If not you have a clog and it needs to be addressed for safety. I don't think you have a cooling system problem.

Yes, it could be the VAT security module is going bad or even the key itself. Try getting a new key and see if it stops. This may take a while to actually confirm, but a key is the cheapest thing to replace. I hope this helps.

Security light flashing and car won't start now


does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue with unique starting problems


A common cause for this, asuming no check engine light, is a leaking fuel ressure regulator. When they fail, they leak fuel into the vacuum line causing a very rich condition- basically flooded.
