1998 buick skylark security theft light on,car starts and turns of right away?


Your PassKey Security System is malfunctioning. The most likely cause is a bad ignition lock cylinder. Try this to get it started:
1. Set the parking brake. (This will keep your headlamps from coming on and running your battery down)
2. Turn the key to the "START" position and release it to the "RUN" position. (Do not turn the key to the "OFF" position or you will have to start over.)
3. Leave the key in the RUN position for about 10 minutes until the SECURITY light stops flashing.
4. When the light stops flashing, turn the key to the "START" position again.


This should get the engine started so you can drive the vehicle to get it repaired.

Your ignition switch is made up of two parts the switch itself and the cylinder. You stated you replaced the cylinder but it's the switch (housing that cylinder goes into) that needs to be replaced.

If the Passlock switch has been replaced, the computer has to "learn" the new Passlock code. You will need to hook up a battery charger to perform the learning process. (It takes about 30 minutes with the key in the "ON" position and it will run the battery down.)

Step 1:

Turn the key to the "START" position and release to the "RUN" position. The "SECURITY" light will be flashing. After about 10 minutes, the light will stop flashing.
.
Step 2:

Turn the key "OFF" then back to the "RUN" position. (Do NOT try to crank it yet) The light will start flashing again. Wait about 10 minutes for it to stop flashing.
.
Step 3:
.
Turn the key "OFF" and back to "RUN" one last time. The light will be flashing again. This time, when it stops flashing, do not turn the ignition off. Instead, turn the key from the "RUN" position to "START". The engine should start and run. The computer has now learned the new Passlock code.

Starter stays engaged when key is off


mcdevito 75 here, It sounds like the solinoid switch on the stater, take off the positive battery cable if the starter stops then it"s the solinloid, Have your shop change the starter.
