Tumblers in the ignition switch and/or thew key itself is worn down and not pushing the tumblers into correct position. Only fix is to get a new switch assembley or try a fresh cut key.

    Unfortunately You cant. You would need the key code to be provided to a locksmith or visit a local dealership and hope they will cut you a key or be able to give you the code. Best of luck.

Y olsdmobile lss 98 is on security light flashing and won t star how to fixed


put key in ignition and turn all the way like your'e going to start it but don't start it. the security light is going to be flashing. leave it for ten minutes like that until the security light turns solid(not blinking). Turn the key to off and then start it. The tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder are no good any more and the ignition switch needs to be replaced and reprogrammed.

My 1998 Olds Bravada has the key stuck in the ignition. I paid to have a new ignition key cylinder put in, but the new one does the same thing. The key will start the car etc. but won't come out of...


I know in the newer versions of the Bravada, Trailblazers, Envoys, the ignition switch itself is always the culprit. Not the switch the key goes in, but it's located under the steering wheel column. I know how to replace the newer ones but not yours. That's the first place I'd look.

My 1998 bravada will not start,lights will not work or anything else electric,and i can not get the key out of the ignition


Your ignition switch is probably locked up. I would take the steering wheel assembly apart to try to get the ignition switch out. Mike. Rate 100% and respond back please.

2000 oldsmobile intrique will not start


So the motor is turning over. Check to see if you are getting fuel and spark. Fuel pressure 30psi to start motor. If you are getting spark and not sure about fuel spray starting fluid in throttle body to see if it starts. If it starts change fuel pump and filter.

One other thing would be the anti theft system if equipped.
