If the lights won't come on, I'd assume it has something to do with the battery. Either dead or it isn't 100% connected in the wiring. I'd suggest getting a jump. If that doesn't work, a new battery may be in order. Not being able to turn the key is not something I can much help with, however.

Odds are your security system is having intermittent problems reading the key. Do you have another key to try? Is the security light on when this happens?

Everything is fine, but then without warning, i turn ignition key and everything blacks out


Sounds like a loose connection. Check all battery and starter connections for clean and tight connections.

Car security light flashing, wont start


The problem might be your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running, or start for 5 seconds and then die. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my regal for more than a year.

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective.

Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did to fix the problem. For a list of cars effected by this problem. See the NEWROCKIES link on the right side of their page.........

I have a 2000 monte carlo ss 3800 series. Sometimes the security light comes on and car will not start. When security light is not on, car always starts.Any ideas?


The passlock is having issues try this procedure and see if it helps. If it does not the passlock and ignition tumbler may need replaced.

PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

I tried to start car but it nothing happens???


If you got absolutely nothing, you could have a dead battery. Do the dome lights come on when you open the door? Does the motor 'click' when you turn the key but not turn over? Could lead to starter celenoid. Could be the starter itself. What more specifically is the car doing when you turn the key? If the motor turns over but doesn't start, that could be a whole different world of problems.
