Question about 1994 Oldsmobile 88
It appears you've reset the VATS.
The car does not recognise the chip in the ignition
key when that happens. You can try to put the key
in the ignition, turn to the on position & wait at
least 10 mins like that when it happens. But
after awhile, it will stop working at all.
Your ignition switch assembly may be to blame.
In some cases, the VATS (GM'S VEHICLE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM)
will re learn the code this way, and will then
allow the restart all the time. But if this does not work,
then go to any GM vehicle dealer
to have the service department evaluate the issue,
re code it.
Lastly, to do a permanant bypass on the VATS
system, see the PLJX BYPASS 1 & 2 module
Good luck with it.
