SOURCE: Security light in 99 Oldsmobile Alero

There isnt a fuse for the theft system. You need to take the coloum cover off. Should be 3 screws and you will see all the wires in there. The ones you need are three togather. White Black and Yellow. Get the car started and cut the yellow wire. The theft light will come on and stay on but will bypass the theft system. If it is a 2 wire system you will see two little metal strips on the upper side of the key. You have to use a ohm meter and measure the resistance of the strip in there. Its a resistor used to tell the theft computer the key is in there. Anyway find out what the resistance is and buy a resistor from radio shack and look under the steering wheel for the 2 very small guage wires in a yellow cover....NOTE not the air bag wires. Simply cut those wires ( the 2 white ones) and on the set going away from the steering wheel strip the wires and put the resistor one one wire and the other end of it to the other wire....That will disable that system. If its the 2 wire and you have issues getting it simply take the car to a car audio place that does remote starts and for a nominal fee they will do it for you. My records show that it has the 3 wire system.

SOURCE: 2004 Alero. Car turns over,

Hey jonce17....I had the same problem, and my Alero sat in my driveway for 2 days. I looked online for the solution, and I found out how to bypass the security. After it won't start and the security light is blinking, turn the ignition to the on position. Leave it there till the security light stops blinking and stays on (usually takes 9 to 10 minutes). Then turn ignition to off position and start it like normal. This happens to me about once every couple of months. Hope this helps....

SOURCE: how to bypass a 2001 oldsmobile alero security so it will start

As indicated above, it's not a recommended solution since it eliminates the security feature all together. There is a procedure in your Owner's Manual how to reset the security module by allowing the car to sit idle for ten (10) minutes with the ignition key turned to the RUN position. The security image in the dash will simply go out after the 10 minutes, and you should be able to start your car. Only problem here is that the security lock may come back on again in several days to two weeks (and you will need to repeat the process again, and again.). There is also a YouTube video which shows a person altering the wiring harness that controls the security module by cutting a wire, stripping the insulation off a second wire and connecting the two (2) wires by inserting a resistor (certain size specified in the video that can be obtained from Radio Shack). You will need to use a small soldering iron and it takes about 15-20 minutes once you remove the radio to access the three (3) wire harness. Looks simple if you know what your doing, and is suppose to bypass the security feature permanently. Costs less than $5 for the needed parts (resistor, solder, electrical tape, etc.).

I tried to reset the ignition on my alero 2004, it still will not start, now the security light does not even go on


The security, antitheft, or passlock light 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 misinterperates 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.

What wire do I cut to bypass the passlock on my 2004 alero


You Cannot cut any wires to bypass on this system. The passlock security needs to see a valid key in order to have the PCM enable the fuel and Ignition. This system is complex and cannot be bypassed with the cutting of a wire.
