    I did take it to the dealer and he said that he was afraid that they might have changed the locks because the key that I have only fits the driver door and the ignition.

Hi im wes
only thing you can do is take the vin number to gm and they can make you a key usualy about 50 bucks. if you had the right key i could walk you through bypassing the key reader but you would need to know the ohms of resistance of the chip hope this helps wes
ps please rate me

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Buick

A coworker of mine said he had the same problem with a GM product the same year. I tried it and it worked, so simple. All you have to do is pull the headlight switch on and then start the car, let it run for a few minutes and now it works normal.

SOURCE: 1999 Buick regal Security light on. Won't start.

A remote starter could be the problem. Have you recently gotten a new ignition key? If you have gotten a new key does it have a chip on it? If so is it the right chip? If no chip on key then that is for sure the problem. As long as that light is on after turning ignition to the on position (not start position) the car will not start when turned to the start position. If this doesn't help you out then submit more information and i'll try to help again.

SOURCE: transmission plugs different

Not if one is a 4t60e and the other is a 4t65e, they are not interchangable. The 1995 should be a 4t60e, It has a round plug toward the radiator and also has a vac modulator. The 2000 should be a 4t65e, It has a bigger round plug coming through the top of the side cover, toward drivers fender, and no vac modulator.

Why wont my 99 Buick regal ls stay running it starts then immediately stalls out


Is your SECURITY light flashing? If so, you have a V.A.T.S. problem. VATS stands for Vehicle Anti Theft System. Try getting a new ignition key made because the resistance value has probably changed in the one you have. If that doesn't do it you'll need to get a VATS bypass.

I have a 2000 buick Regal LS. My battery died, I gave it a jump. The Car cranks , but wont stay on unless the gas pedal is press down. If you let the gas pedal go , the car shuts off. what is the solution...


Check out the TPS on the throttle body. It has three wires to it, The black is the ground and the other two are for high and low resistor readings. If an open occurs the car will die out and very well start again. The tps should have a 1.5 volt setting to operate correctly when new

How do I replace the ignition (keys's lost) in the steering?


did u get a key that was the proper code? these keys have a little piece of resistive wire embedded in the key, does the key u had made have that? if not it will not work, u can't just get a key cut, they have numbers to select the proper resistance value for the key to work with your security system.
