Only reprogram if you know it needs programming otherwise you are wasting your money. Take the key to a main dealer and ask them if the programming is still working as you are having trouble starting your car.

They should be able to tell you if it needs programming or not.

Changed ignition switch now security light stays on and truck starts and kills

You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.

The old key may have an induction chip in to deactivate the anti theft system. Does it have a red insert (chip) in the key handle? Get the old key and place it as close to the ignition barrel as possible. Seen this done on a number of occasions to save paying for a key reprogram.

I have an '87 Olds Toronado and my problem is the battery goes dead over night while parked and shut off. I have had the GENERATOR light come on and also ELECTRICAL light come on. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the battery is not holding a full charge...or not being fully charged by the alternator...(may be a corroded connection) Both of these are free tests at your local parts store...if both test fine...(unlikely) the starter has to be shorting out to drain the battery overnight...Hope this helps.

No crank security on

security on means your passlock sensor is probably at fault.. you will need the who key barrel and sensor to be changed and reprogrammed. can be done yourself but not easy.

first remove old system and replace new assembly. might be easier to replace the whole column switch and all. once you have changed the parts you now have to reprogram cylinder into computer.
now you might want to hookup a battery charger for this next step
now turning key to crank then leave key on to ignition security light will flash
after 10 minutes the light will stop flashing and then stay on.
now turn key off wait 5 secs.
then turn key to start again then again leave key in ignition.for 10 minutes

you will repeat these steps three times. the fourth time the engine shold turn over and start.

cylinder sensor is now programmed

Wont start

i have a 91, this happens to me but it says STARTER DISABLED on the display. If the 90 is the same, it is an anti theft feature. On the ignition key there is a black square thing after the teeth of the key. The system needs to recognize the black square to start the car, so if it is warn down you will have this problem. Get a spare made with that special key only some key copier places have it. But on mine if you wait 3 minutes after the message shows up, you can then start it successfully.

Good luck!
