Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
Very often it could also be a problem in the TDM that is the core of the security system.The resistor trick would only bypass the key and the lock, but leaves the TDM and wiring harness in the loop. There is a great write-up on how to completely bypass the security system on http://newrockies.ca - it was the only way I was able to save my Park Avenue after weeks that it was stuck.

never heard of this happening before ,sounds more like the code reader behind the steering lock is playing up.If it is then its dealer only,have a funny feeling this could be an expensive repair.Sorry i couldnt be much more help but this fancy electronic stuff is designed to stop general mechanics like myself from doing repairs.

SOURCE: 99 olds aurora pass key problem
There is most likely a problem with the tiny sensor in the ignition lock cylinder, it is not reading the key chip and locks u out, the problem is u can't just replace the lock cylinder u need a dealer only re-programm of the pass key system since the control module will not recognize the new lock code, catch 22 if u ask me. Do u have more than one key for the car? do both do this?
