Take it to a dealer service shop and have the key programmed to the CPU in the car.

SOURCE: need to bypass triad security system - car wont start

There are several configurations of the same security system. But one sure fire way to correct this issue is to get a bypass kit. Any shop that installs remote startups has the ability to bypass this system. Since the sytem measures the resitance of the key/lock and asociated wiring any shorting of those wires will make it very difficult to defaet without some expertise.

Sometimes the remote atart kit also includes the bypass, so you can get two for one here.

Good luck

SOURCE: steering column locked

temporary solution is to put the key in the ignition and tap on the end that attaches to the ring vdery gently with something like a pocket knife. this allows the pin to fall into place and work better. try to keep the key in an unbound... not against either the clockwise limit or counterclockwise limit.... as you are tapping. if this works, lubricate the lock and get it to a locksmith before it quits working all together and the lock needs to be drilled

SOURCE: security system shut car down

man these buick dealerships are making a killing nowadays, the keys have a chip in them that helps a sensor in the steering column recognize that those are the right keys for that car, it's an anti-theft device that sometimes backfires, usaully the culprit is a damage chip in the key, because keys get thrown around and mashed up with other keys in peoples pockets, the key it self is not cheap but it is cheaper than replacing steering column. Get a new key and see if that helps, they should have provided you with a new key if they replaced the steering column and the sensor inside of it. I think dealerships aren't making enough money selling cars in this economy and are making frivolous repairs that don't help fix problems and charge a lot of money in the process

HI, PROBLEM AREA ON A WIDE RANGE OF "GM" CARS WHAT IT IS IS THAT YOUR PASSLOCK SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED WHICH MEANS THAT FUEL IS SHUT OFF TO THE ENGINE THEIR IS ONE WAY TO GET AROUND THIS BUT THE PART NEEDS REPLACED YOU NEED A NEW INGITION LOCK CYLINDER THIS HAS THE SENSOR BUILT INTO IT ANYWAYS GET IN CAR TRY AND START IT IT MAY OR MAY NOT ATTEMPT TO FIRE AT THIS POINT LEAVE THE KEY IN THE RUN POSITION AND YOU MUST!!!!!!!!! LEAVE IT IN THE RUN POS. FOR APPROX. 10 MINUTES WATCH THE DASH THE THEFT OR SERCURITY LITE WILL BE FLASHING WHAT THIS WILL DO IS THE BODY CONTROL MODULE LOST MEMORY OF YOUR KEY AND HAS TO RELEARN IT AFTER AFTER 10 OR SO MINS. THE LITE WILL REMAIN ON STEADY MEANING NOT BLINKING ANYMORE TURN KEY OFF THEN TRY TO START CAR.. THIS IS NOT A FIX YOU MUST REPLACE PASSLOCK SENSOR.....

Did you use the original key and lock cylinder? They are coded for the security system.

99 mercury cougar I lost my key. I replaced my steering column with another steering column with key. My car wont start so what do I do next.


The problem is with the factory security system; you'll need to reset the security code matching between the security system and the code on your keys that came with the new column.

99 mercury cougar wont crank no spark anti theft light flashing


a bad security system would restrict the ignition system from activating so the engine may be perfectly fine but until the security system give it the ok, its gonna sit. have someone take a look at the security system and see if they cant fix the system or deactivate it (what use is a security system if your car wont start right?)

Is there a steering column security system doesn't allow starts on cold mornings?


I posted some information about your security system on the other question that you posted where you mentioned the pellet in the key on your older vehicle.

Let me ask you this: Does the starter not crank the engine when you are experiencing this difficulty? Or is the starter cranking the engine and it just won't start?

The reason I ask is because if the starter cranks and your problem only occurs on cold mornings, the problem is most likely to be caused by a malfunctioning Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.

In any case, you should scan your computer network for possible fault codes to begin any diagnosis of either your engine control system or your security system (Unless you really like wasting your hard-earned cash trying to "GUESS" what is wrong).

Yes it sounds like a security system problem. Does the new column have pass key? You are leaving the key on until the security light stops flashing? The light is flashing for 10 minutes?

Replace the ign. lock cylinder. Put old chip key in new cylinder. Plug it in to the connector at bottom of steering column by the dash after removing the wire from old lock cylinder. With duplicate key to turn old cylinder start car. Be sure to clean the battery cables and replace bolts. Hide the new cylinder under dash with chip key in it.

Most likely there you have a security system VAT (Vehicle Anti-Theft) module. If you try to bypass this the car will not start. Have a mechanic or yourself get to the main wiring harness to the ignition in the steering column under the dash, unplug it and use another ignition with a key in it to learn the security system code first before trying to start it.
