Locked ignition in 2000 Oldsmobile Silhoutter

When we insert I key into the ignition, the van beeps like it is going to start but the key will not turn. I have tired turning the wheel and the key at the same time and it did not work. Someone said a new key might work but it is a PK3 is only available at the dealer but I am thinking this is not going to make a difference.

Start key locked up


If the ignition hasn't been changed before. You can go to a dealer with the VIN# and have a key made. This doesn't guaranty anything as the tumblers wear down, like the key does. Next step would be a locksmith.

Constant beeping when opening door to exit van


Good news. After letting the van sit for a few hours, when I went to get in it again, I opened the van with the key (ie. not the remote fob) and there was no beeping. I don't know if checking all the fuses (I fulled and checked each one), or disconnecting the battery, using the key, or just letting it sit did the trick, but it is now fixed.

My olds silhouette security light came on and would'nt start


I had a similar problem. Check your battery, it is probably on the verge of dying. My problem went away when the battery was replaced.
