Hi....
Is common to see this problem with the theft system on chevys.
On your case I can figure out that the Computer is lossing the Pass code.
But this is due to a Bad pass lock sensor . The pass lock sensor is integrated in the Ignition lock cylinder.
The car will start After about 15 minutes. with the key In On position.
Because is about the time that the computer take to learn the Pass lock code. Exactly 11 min.

I recomend get the ignition lock cylinder checked for any inconssistence on the hardware.
The key some times bent. Or the small wires around the Lock cylinder damaged.
If everything is OK.. You will need to replace the Ignition lock cylinder , Before any control module...


Ok.. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...

1997 Buick Skylark sometimes wont start


Your car's alarm might have bad wiring or connectors. You could try cleaning & reconnecting them. Or use a multimeter to see if you can find connectivity issues.

If the alarm itself might be the culprit, having a garage remove/disconnecting it is the cheapest solution (less than a $100), having it replaced could be really expensive ...

I have a 1997 buick skylark custom problems


I too have a 97 buick skylark custom, that hasn't been cranking. Heres what I have figured out so far, so you may have the same problem. Heres the first question - Is the theft system light flashing when you try to crank the car? Cause if it is, it means the car isn't wanting to recognize your key as the correct key which is causing the car to go into tamper mode which disables fuel to the engine, in which case you have to turn the key back to the start position and wait for the light to stop flashing then try to crank it again.

P.S. i'm not sure why this other thing would be a problem but i lost my gas cap right before this started happening and someone told my that might trigger the sensor, do you have yours?

I doubt if that button somehow bypasses or resets the alarm, that would be kind of self-defeating.

I have had the key cylinder changed twice on my 96 Buick Skylark Grand Sport and still having the same trouble. The car will start, it runs for about 3 seconds and shuts off with the theft system light on. I have reset the computer time and again and the car WILL run great for a day or two and then it gets back into the same routine. Is there a way to bypass the theft system? If so... PLEASE help me out before I take a hammer to it.

Buick Skylark won't start. intermittant problem


Had similar problem Does the 'theft system' light come on or blink? If so, get it checked out by a good electronic troubleshooter. If it doesn't start, try locking and unlocking driver door twice, and it should reset and start.
