I had a simular problem. It has to do with the Passloc security system. I get going again, turn the key to the on position. The security light will stay lit, leave in the on position for a FULL ten minutes. After ten minutes the security light will flash, and you should be able to start the car. Turn off then start car.

This has worked for me many times, but because I was worried that I maybe far from home when it would decide not to work, I had the ingintion switch replaced ($850), It's been ok ever since.

Security light 1999 Olds alero


My 1999 alero was doing the same thing a few years back. I took it to the shop and they told me it had something to do with my ignition (it was several years ago so I can't remember exactly what they said). It was sort of an expensive fix. It hasn't done it since. I hope that helps a little.
