SOURCE: I have a 1991 Olds cutlass ciera 3.3 v6, starts up

Good Evening, you might want to check those injectors, I can not remember for certain but that setup was sequential and when one or two have a problem it would take out the rest. Ohm out the injectors and see what you have there.

SOURCE: sometimes it will start drive

If the antitheft is acting up in your vehicle. You are looking at 1 of 3 things. Either the vehicle won't crank over and start, It cranks but dies in a couple seconds, or your vehicle shuts off while driving scaring the **** out of you. It starts off as a few "no starts" that annoy you. Then it starts to become a problem when you're late or missing work because of it. It will seem random and unexplained. A sure tell sign is if the security light illuminates on your dash when you turn the key forward. You have now experienced GM's worst security system ever created. GM's security, also known as Passlock Passkey or Vats.

There are 3 parts in this system.
1.The CHIPKEY
Normally a black resister chip in key which "communicates" to the lock cylinder. Sometimes is hidden in the plastic part of keys in new models. Same concept, might say PK1 PK2 PK3 PL or something similar to that. The newer ones work on frequency. Same thing tho.
2.The LOCK CYLINDER
Inside there are pins that read the chip in the key or the part that reads the frequency on new models. This then "communicates" to the TDM)
3.The TDM
Theft Deterrant Module-Sometimes called the "computer" or "brain". This is the part that sends the signal (**NOTE**) to your car and allows your car to start or continue running depending on your type of system.
If any of these parts are not communicating properly, your SECURITY light will come on and shut down your vehicle. The idea being, that without the chipped key or FOB key, the vehicle wont start and cant be "hotwired" or stolen. Pretty nice when working, but these systems are flawed and the average life is 6-10 years. Every single aspect of this system is expensive to replace and can only be worked on by "authorized" GM service men with out voiding warrenty. Most garages dont even touch them and if they do,
they will sell you every part they can before "fixing" the problem/
*QUICK FIX TRICKS*
1st trick
Try a spare key that is newer or used less. The pins wear down with use and so do the keys causing the security to fail.

2nd trick
(if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my Buick for more than a year. If its shutting down while running, I'm sorry I have no quick fix...

*PERMINANT FIX*
Well since the lifespan of these systems are so short, and are extremely expensive to fix, and in my opinion far worse of a threat to owners than theives, my only perminant suggestion is to eliminate it completely. After a year of 10 minute tricks and a "key bypass" that lasted 2 months and stranded me out of state, ($375 tow charge) i have only one good suggestion. After surfing the web for hours thru forums and websites i came across http://newrockies.com/passkey to the starter or injectors and so on. Thus eliminating the ENTIRE system completely. I came upon a fork in my road. A TDM for $600 in my $1000 car or the $200 bypass. Or throw my car away. Lets say i now drive a Buick with the chip ripped out of the key and the TDM sitting in my glovebox for show
and tell. If you have any questions or anything else. Comment on this post
and i'll get an E-mail to reply to you. If you do choose to buy the bypass,
i have pictures of what a TDM looks like and will definately help you when
installing the newrockies bypass. Good luck

I have an 1992 ciera cutlass that acts like it wants to stall or stalls while driving, and after it stalls or i turn the car off it wont start back up unless i let it sit for 30-45 min. i've scanned it...


SOUND LIKE FUEL PUMP FAILING OR STOPPED UP FUEL FILTER, CHECK FOR FUEL PRESSURE SEE IF YOU HAVE FUEL PRESSURE, IF YES PROBLEM COULD BE EGR VALVE STUCK OPEN WHICH WILL CAUSE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO FLASH.

My 1991 olds cutlass ciera has been running hot. Had the thermostat replaced, the fan runs fine but I still have a problem of the car running hot while the air conditioner is running. Please help!


It sounds like one or both of two problems. The radiator cores may be clogged and not letting enough coolant through, or the radiator and condenser fins may be clogged and not letting enough air through. The only other thing I've seen with the same symptoms is an A/C unit running too much pressure on the high side which overheats the condenser and in turn the radiator.
