Question about 1997 Buick Skylark
I go to start my car in the morning its very could out side its then when the theft system will not let me start it . it will blink 3times and go out ; after 3 tries i have to wait15mins.
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...
