I have a 2004 Alero Oldsmobile if I buy the chipped ignition does it reprogram itself for the anti-theft device


Chipped ignition ? Key's on your car do not have transponder chip . Replacing Keys
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.

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.

Water leaked through my front window and the fuse box got wet now my car turns over starts then dies,what should i do i have a 1999 alero


Might have to do with the anti theft security system that GM installs. When it "dies", look on the dash for a light that says SECURITY, if you see this, then the anti theft is shutting you down and you need to read this link for answers. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I am having the same issue with my anti-theft device in my 2003 Alero. Last year it stopped running and would not turn-over. $400 later, Brakemax said they just had to reset the anti-theft device. oK,...


the shop that told you they ripped it out only ripped you off unless they removed some aftermarket alarm system i,m a gm mechanic and if you remove the factory anti-theft on a 2003 olds alero it will not run ever again until re-installed make sure your battery is charged good turn igntion switch to run position but do not try to start security light should be flashing let car sit with switch on and light flashing for ten minutes light should stop flashing now start your car this is how to reset anti-theft was that worth $400.00 and again why let a bussiness named brakemax look at a no start condition keep on and you will be BROKE to the max HOPE THIS HELPS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM YOUR FRIEND @ HELPMAX

I HAVE A 2000 ALERO THAT THE ABS LIGHT WON'T GO OFF CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO RESET IT


You have to fix the problem with the ABS first. If you have done this, you can reset the light by leaving the battery cable (negative cable) unhooked for 15 minutes. If you have a factory radio with OEM anti-theft, be sure you know the code before you unhook the battery.

Car keep cuting off when i start it in the moning


Sounds like your anti theft system. You can manually reset it. Turn the key on, and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Try to start after this. If this doesn't work, may be time for a trip to the GM dealer.
