If you have the passkey system you might want to take the key to the dealer to have it tested, and if that is ok then there is a way to bypass the security system which I had to do in my Bonneville.

'98 Oldsmobie Intrigue how do I permanently disable the security system?


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, or not seen at all. When the communication breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. (like it thinks it's being hot wired) The car shuts down because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. It will either turn off the starter, or the fuel injectors. The vehicle may run for 2-3 seconds before shutting down. This link explains it pretty well.

Changed water pump, car wont start


Starts everytime and shuts right down? Usually an indication of the security system. I had to bypass a 98 Malibu because of this. A lot of those era Chevys had problems. Check the videos on it. I don't know exactly what one your car has. 2005 impala security bypass YouTube

My 98 jimmy had the security light come on 3 times.none of the times it come on at start or stay on for long time.first time it happened, my rpm gauge went crazy and it dogged out a little. What up


This may be the dreaded antitheft security system. Look for a picture on the dash when this happens that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it. This 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.

Air conditioner not working on 1993 bonnevile, compressor not engaging, charge good, power at low pressure switch, switch is closed, need to know what turns a/c relay for compressor clutch on, clutch...


the ECM supplies the ground circuit for the a/c clutch. the high pressure switch also needs to be closed to engage the clutch. when the low pressure switch and the high pressure switch are closed that completes the power circuit to trigger the relay.then the power on the #30 terminal can connect to the #87 terminal to send power to the a/c clutch.

I put a 03 3.8 out of a grand prix into a 98 bonneville, i now have a bad oil leak behind the power steering pump at the front motormount where a stud and nut fasten the mount, oil just pours out


do you still have the engine you took out (hope so)
check very closely and see if there is any differance
the bonnevile's have a way different engine mount then the GP
you have put that stud into an oil gallery
check the old engine and see if that hole is blind
good luck!
hope this helps

Power steering randomly went out 98 pontiac bonnevile


Check serpentine belt. It may be broken.
If all belts are in good shape and tensioned properly have the car looked at by a mechanic for troubleshooting.
