SOURCE: How do you stop the security light from blanking

For the radio Im pretty sure you just need to call your dealer or go see them, they will take your VIN and give you a code to keep your after market stereo from kicking the theft lock.

The security light unfortunatly is a very common, and as it is just annoying right now, potentially big problem. The model Pass Key system in th 01 Olds Aurora tends to be defective in most of these cars. If the Security light, or DIC is flashing Theft fault system, you need to see your dealer. Chances are your secureity system is about to have some "Lock out" Malfunctions. These are no fun. Its when the Pass Key system detects a suspicious or uncorrect key trying to start car or someone is trying to enter car abnormally. Its actaully a very good feature when opperating properly. It usally lock the system for 3-10 minutes and the system resets and with the correct key you can start the car. The problem is that the little chips in the keys go bad causing the "lock out" to happen even when usuing the correct key. Anouther, less used key can work better, and if you start expieriencing lock outs, waiting to the system to reset usally works, but eventually those mthods will fail to and you will have to have it repaired. This system can also cause the "lock out" to occur while driving down the road.

Id get it checked and fixed before the neusance light become a real problem.

You can also consider a Bypass system that with completly go around the smart key system. They are inexpensive and effective and preventing issues with the Pass Lock. However you will not have the security settings from the Immobalizer (lock out) so it would be a easier target for joy riders. You will still have the theft deterant ability, that alarms if someone tried gaining entry to the car with out keys or proper entry methods.

Bypass systems are not full proof either and do wear out over time. I think they have far less issues than the securtity feature in the car and if the bypass fails and Lock Out occurs, simply get a new Bypass. Hope I helped a bit take care :-)

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora I turn the key and it makes no noise and all the lights come on could it be the key or could it have something to do with the security light is blinking


The security light blinking is the problem, you must get control module scanned for fault codes to diagnose the issue or you can bypass the system if you understand basic electrical systems . Just google bypass passkey system.

Need the wiring schematics for a 2001 oldsmobile aurora


There are several computer modules involved in your antitheft and security system.
There is the Driver's door module, the right front door module, the right rear door module, the left rear door module, the dash integration unit, the rear integration unit, the instrument panel cluster, the theft deterrent module, the theft deterrent exciter module, the body control module and the powertrain control module. These are all networked together to form the perimeter security and anti-theft system.

Any problems you may be having with this system should be properly diagnosed. Diagnosis of this system must BEGIN with a complete scan of the onboard computer network so that fault codes can be retrieved. and the computer data checked and verified. This is the only way to correctly determine which part of the system is malfunctioning.

Wiring schematics are not designed to give you the location of these components. They only show the wiring connections that are made between them.

What exactly are you trying to fix?

We bought the car today from a private seller. We test drove the car and shut it off several times in our 30 min test drive. We shut it off at the store and now it will not start. We tried jumping the...


It could be corrosion on the battery terminals. Otherwise, you sometimes can't get a car with a dead cell in the batty to jump start at all. I would call the seller and politely ask their advice.
Treat them with respect, and they will probably be very helpful. Don't start accusing them of things. That just never ever helps.

Its part of Gm's theft lock security system and will more than likely have to be reprogramed at your gm dealer,for a small fee.
