Security Start- 2000 Intrigue

I have a 2000 intrigue and I have the exact same problem!
That 10 minutes is never when you have that extra time to kill... ugh!

Is this a starter problem? Is it a re call?

The security system on my Olds Intrigue has gone haywire. Sometimes car starts, sometimes I have to wait about 15 minutes to start. No one will steal it. How do I bypass security?

This is a common problem on GM vehicles. The antitheft system is a failed system from the start. Go to this link. It's full of info and offers some solutions to fix this yourself.

Driving down the road the car will shut off 1998 Olds Intrigue. Sometimes it will start right back up. Other times it has to set for awhile like to cool down or something. Other times it will not start...

Next time this happens, check to see if the SECURITY light shows up on the dash. The security that comes on that vehicle can actually kill the motor if its not comminicating properly.

If there is a light, check out this link

I have and oldsmobile 2000 intrigue. i changed the computer and now it wont crank when the key is turned and also the security light is flashing constantly how do i reconcile the new computer to the car?

There is a simple procedure for this.
First of all (and VERY IMPORTANT) is to connect the vehicle to a battery charger. Leave the battery charger on during this entire process.
This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes . Make sure the battery is fully charged before proceeding.
  1. Turn the ignition switch off.
  2. Turn the ignition switch all the way from the off to the start position, then leave it in the on position.
NOTE: The engine will not crank.

  1. The SECURITY will come on and stay on for at least 10 minutes . When it goes out, proceed to step 4.
  2. Turn the ignition switch off for five seconds .
  3. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a second time.
  4. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a third time.
  5. Turn the ignition switch off.
  6. Turn the ignition switch all the way to the start position. The engine should now start.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue

Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

Occasionally having starting problem 98 olds intrigue

Yes, it could be the VAT security module is going bad or even the key itself. Try getting a new key and see if it stops. This may take a while to actually confirm, but a key is the cheapest thing to replace. I hope this helps.

A common cause for this, asuming no check engine light, is a leaking fuel ressure regulator. When they fail, they leak fuel into the vacuum line causing a very rich condition- basically flooded.
