OK>>> I have a Chevy Impala in which I was able to permanently disable my factory alarm system. I did some checking and your car has a somewhat similar system called VATS but there are differences which make it harder to disable. What I would recommend is a website called allexperts.com Click on cars (there are several categories) click on cars a second time and then there will be a listing of all kinds of models. Click on Oldsmobile/Buick and then go to view past answers. There is a lot of information there about your problem and some possible solutions. I am just not familiar enough with the VATS system to tell you authoritatively myself any solutions but I always want to try to point others in the right direction. I hope this helps. There was a lot of info there. Thanks...

Will not start but turns over


Check if security light is on, if so, must reset. To reset, put key in ignition and turn to on position. Security light will start flashing on and off. Leave key in on position until security light stops flashing and turns off completely. This will take approximately 10 minutes. Then turn key off and take out of ignition. Put key back in and start car. Should now start

Rule of thumb, when the security light flashes, thee problem will be in the key or ignition. When its solid, its probably the theft deterrent module. TDM. This link might help you understand the problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.

You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.
