1999 buick regal won't start


This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

My 1996 buick riviera will not turn over for 4 days now secerity light goes on and off


The security light is the reason that the starter is not turning over. The security light indicates a problem in the antitheft system. When this is triggered, the antitheft system turns the starter off to prevent the car from being stolen. The hard part is finding out which part is causing the antitheft to fail. Go to this link for info on how this system works along with some tricks to try, and ways to bypass this system entirely.

The lights in the dash come on but the security light jus flashes and the car want turn over or nothin


You have a failed antitheft security system. The key is most likely the problem. That little chip tends to wear down. It could also be a few other things. Since the light is flashing, it will either be the key or ignition lock cylinder. If it wear solid, then it would be the TDM (Theft Deterrent Module) which is the brain of the security system. Try rplacing the key. if that doesnt work you have 2 choices. Replace the ignition or bypass the security. There are 2 ways to bypass your car. BOTH will work for you. Ive done it. This link will help you understand the system and guide you with pictures and those 2 other links. Any questions, comment back on THIS post. Im good with BUICKS and always willing to help. Thanks for using FixYa

1999 Buick regal starts then dies


It's that infamous "chip" in the key that becomes a nightmare to many. The security light may or may not start flashing. Sometimes it stays on steady. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it will start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners than thieves. Here is how you save your car
QUICK FIX TRICKS
1st trick, Try a spare key that is newer or used less. The pins wear down with use and so do the keys causing the security to fail.
2nd 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. If its shutting down while running, I'm sorry I have no quick fix...
CHEAP FIX: Bypass the chip in your key. This is temporary, but effective until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the dash poops out. Then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/

If you're gonna tear your car apart anyway, just do this next fix and bypass it all together. Its more money, less work, and a PERMANENT fix. Up to you tho.

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. It took longer to find the solution than it did to fix the problem. They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... It can cost anywhere from 600-1000 bucks. If you do buy this, please purchase it thru this link.
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 ----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites.

It works for:
Any GM or Isuzu Vehicle with VATS or PASSKey or PASSLock security systems.
If your car has the chip in the key or in the lock cylinder, then you can save it with this Full Bypass.
