The pcm (powertrain control module ) is telling you it has a set code in the memory. Take the car to a parts place like (auto zone ) and have them to run a scam on the pcm for a trouble code. Once you have done that then you will be able to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

How do I reset the security system on a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

If the security light is on you can try the 10 min. relearn procedure . Turn the key to run ( not start ) an leave the key on for ten min. If the light goes off in ten . min. turn the key off . Then start the vehicle . If the security light doesn't go off there is a hard fault an you will need to have it diagnosed by a repair shop that knows how .

My 2001 Buick lesabre custom shut down and won't turn over the battery is charged and related fuses are correct .how do I find out if the factory security feature is the problem ?

When you turn the key to on position, does the security light go out after a couple seconds? If so, it is not security. If it stays on, do a reset. Turn it on for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. It resets the security. A relearn is three times this, start after the third time. Have a charger on the battery. If the battery gets to low on voltage, you have to start all over.

What is causing my Oldsmobile Alero to shut off after starting?

As for the lights being on many GM products do that right after the key is off but if you open the driver's door they should go off. Not sure if that model is part of the ignition switch recall or not. Due to numerous ignition switch problems I would have the ignition switch replaced. The key cylinder IS NOT the switch. The key lock cylinder operates a rod that in turn moved the ignition switch to various positions. Battery must be disconnected and care taken not to deploy the airbag while the switch is replaced. I think I would go with a after market brand such as Delphi rather than another AC Delco factory switch.

The engine shutting off after starting may also be the ignition switch not moving to the RUN position properly. Before doing anything else I'd replace the ignition switch then go from there if the two problems are not cleared up.

Car still wont start tried everything what else could i try any sugggestions?

Hi, Check the solenoid that is attached to the starter motor. That is the most likely cause. Check connections and/or replace solenoid.
There are lights that do come on but shut off after a few seconds when the care is running. There is no reset button that I know of. Have your mechanic check the starter motor as well. Good luck.

How do i reset the security system on my 2003 chevy impala

Are you reffering to the alarm or the pass lock system that put the theft light on.....If its the alarm the put the key in the door and unlock it. If its the pass lock system put the key in the ignition and turn it on and try to start the vehicle. After it shuts itself off leave the key on for ten min until the theft light stops flashing the turn key off and try to start it again. This may take a few times....
