Crank but wont start after i had drove it around and parked


It sounds like your coolant temp sensor, you have two in your car, one goes to your dash and will tell you what temp your car is and the other runs to the ecm and adjusts the air fuel mixture according to the engine temp. Basically the choke, think of it like trying to start a lawn mower keeping the fuel lever on low.

Car starts most of the time but sometimes you have to wait 10 minutes before you try again, gauges always going crazy, car died going 50 mph, battery always tests at 12-13 amps alternator testing always...


your altenator has a built in voltage regulator in the back of it. suggest you replace the altenator to make the problem go away.the car will do all kinds of crazy stuff if it's not getting 12volts all the time, it won;;t get 12volts all the time because the regulator isn't operarating properly.you're running off the charge in battery most of the time because the regulators kicking in @ out after it heats up. hope this helps!!

1996 Oldsmobile Achieva: Security light flashes upon startup


Here is what you do, but only when the SECURITY light flashes - if it is always ON or OFF it's no use.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes ( SECURITY light will flash for 10 minutes and then stay on SOLID)
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the ignition OFF.

Start the car normally.
It has relearnt the keycode and you're good to go.
NOTICE - it takes 30 minutes to relearn, that's THREE cycles of ON - 10 minutes - OFF.

Good luck.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.
