Looks like the anti-thef in the key barel arms itself, it immobilize the vehicule for 5 to 10 minutes has you are saying.

If you have a remote starter, disconnect the immobilizer bypass just in case its defective if not they could have putted a resistance to bypass it permanently if its the case verify that it is well connected.

If not you probably have a problem with the key barrel. Since it is probably sending the signal to the anti-theft intermittently.

THERE IS A CHIP IN THE KEY I BELIEVE. THERE IS A RELEARN PROCEDURE YOU CAN TRY IF WHEN YOU TRY AND START IT THE SECURITY LIGHT FLASHES. HOOK UP A BATTERY CHARGER. TURN THE KEY ON AND TRY AND START THE CAR AND RELEASE . DO NOT TURN KEY OFF LEAVE IT IN THE RUN POSITION. AFTER 10 MINS THE LIGHT WILL STOP FLASHING. TURN KEY OFF. TRY AND RESTART CAR AND AGAIN DO NOT TURN KEY OFF LEAVE IN THE RUN POSITION. LET SET 10 MINS AGAIN. LIGHT WILL STOP FLASHING AFTER THAT 10 MINS. DO IT AGAIN FOR THE 3RD TIME. SHUT KEY OFF LET SET 5 SECONDS AND START THE VEHICLE. HOPE THIS HELPS

I have a 1999 Oldsmobile allero and I am having trouble with the theft lock, randomly my car will not start and then my security light will start flashing and I have to wait for about 15 min for the light...


You are experiencing GM passlock security system. Yours is starting to fail. When the system gets old it fails to communicate with all the parts of the system that need it. When the communication is broken, the car goes into anti theft mode and and turns off the starter and/or the injectors. After ten minutes it trys to connect the communication again, this is why it will work after a while. Go to this link, it has a ton of info and some ways to bypass this system so it will never happen again.

You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.

Security light flashing


Take the Original Ignition key out to the car. Get in it and turn the key on. Every light should light up like your going to start it. The factory security light will flash. Leave the ignition on until it stops flashing. Should take about 10-15 min to do it. once it does, shut the key off and then turn it over to start the car.
