Check all your fuses..The one for your ignition, which is designated for your starter maybe blown.. But if your fuses or good, you can check an see if you have power to the starter...( test light ) or Probe light.. An when the key is turned and the light lights up, an the car does not start, then you need a starter..

04 olds stopped running while i was driving


The security, antitheft, or passlock light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterperates this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.
This link may help you find ways to bypass this or fix it yourself.

Ignition lock cylinders are pretty notorious for this. You may get the thing to turn by wiggling the key up and down while turning at the same time. I have also had luck in tapping on the cylinder with a screwdriver handle while turning the key. To completely fix the problem, you will have to replace the lock cylinder. GM (AC Delco) lock cylinder kits come with an assortment of tumblers so the new cylinder can be set-up to work with your existing keys.

I put my key in the ignition and it wouldn't turn the ignition at all. The key looked fine just like it always does. I made sure the car was in park and all the other standard stuff.


Hello. Move the shifter to neutral and then put it into park with more force. Try the key. Forcefully turn the steering wheel left and right. Then Repeat each step with even more force if necessary. Joe
