Oil light wont reset

I believe on those you have to turn the key to the on postion and press the gas pedel three times within 5 sec. then turn the key off. just do it a bunch of times cause it takes a little while to get it just right

I'm having trouble with my ignition on my 01 bravada when you turn the switch all the lights gauges and radio work as they should but car will not start any ideas.

Yes, this is most likely the anti theft security system. This system is KNOWN to FAIL on just about all GM cars from the late 80's to mid 2000's. Check out this link for info on the subject and possible DO IT YOURSELF solutions.

I have a 2001 saturn sc1 that is having intermittent starting problems. At times after its been driven ill go out to leave again and it won't start. No clicking when I try and start it either. Wait for...

I am having the same problem. did you figure out what was wrong with yours. I have tested all of the wires in the harness under the dash, they r fine. I pulled off the starter and had it tested; O'rilies said it was fine. It is a 5 speed, and I can push start the car just fine any time. Like yours, some days my car starts, some days it doesn't. The days it starts, it runs fine with no problems starting or running. the problem is the days that it wont start.

My grand am starts fr about 10 seconds perfectly then shuts off can't find the problem any input on this?

Is your anti theft light staying on when you turn your key into the on postion, if so you need to reset it. Just leave your key in the on position for abut 20 min and the light should go off then it should start.
