I don't have anything to go by in regards to your vehicles history. The main items to check are Fuse and relay (are they in good working condition?), the Battery (load test, 12.6volts before the test and won't drop below 10.5 during the test), the Battery cables (tight and free from corrosion and frayed strands), the Motor (free from corrosion between it and the ground cable and the starter), the starter (bench test), and the ignition switch (worn or loose connections). Besides the mew lock and cylinder, what have you tested and replaced? What is the repair and maintenance history? Please write back with more information and I will do my best to help, good luck.

How to reset anti-theft on a 2000 alero


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

When i put the key in the ignition it won't turn


If nothing is holding it like the steering wheel or shifter, you may need a new lock cylinder. Did you try a spare key ?

2003 alero steering won't lock and nothing happens when you turn the key in the ignition


If the security light keeps flashing,you might as well do a reset.
Be sure to turn off all the accesories including the radio before you start the process.
Insert the key to the ignition switch and turn the key to ON position without starting the car.
leave it ON until the flashing light (security) stops.It will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
As soon the flashing stop,turn the key to OFF
position and start the cart.
Hope this help.

I have a 1999 oldsmobile alero. I bought it from a private owner. The car was working and running fine until one i put key in the ignition and it won't turn. I had another key made, but the same...


it has to be programmed for the immobilisor to be turned off so vehicle can start ,i would call a auto locksmith to sort out this problem for you as i have a funny feeling that you have lost the chip out of the original key

2000 oldsmobile alero ignition key difficult to turn. Must wiggle before it will move to the right. Any clues for a cheap fix?


Cheapest solution is to get a new key cut and try that. A new lock cylinder is not too hard to replace, but costs around $170
