Hi you will need the key re-coded to the ignition on your vehicle, if i recall on the actual ignition where you put the key, behind the steering cowling there should have been a round thing that looks like a coiled wire, this should be the pick up for the security system just see if you have put that back in where it should be and then you should be good to go, i will just say that some models may have a different system but as you have not put the year on i can only suggest this, also just a note, these things are very delicate and needs to be handled with care as the wires are very thin and brake easy...hope this helps

2009 pontiac g6 car will start but immediately shut off


if you have lost your programed key and trying to start your vehicle with another key that is not programmed, then that could be your issue, it sounds like a security concern, key has to be programmed to the vehicle

Changes 97 grand prix ignition switch, starts but shuts off, no security light. no power to windows,radio


I believe you need a Coded Key for your vehicle.. If your original key had a chip underneath the black cover of the key. You may need to get the ignition switch an the key from the Dealer, an once it is installed they will have to Code it.. Goodluck..

A 1994 Oldsmobile Royal 88 has a problem on the security system


ok first off let me warn you i have had this problem before but let me verify something before i finish warning you . the lights are on all the time or are you saying they have to be on to start the car?

Ok now for the warning you may not like me very good when i tell you the info that took care of my problem like that the reason being is because it is VERY expensive and may not correct your problem it helps on some of the cars with the problem and some it dont
My car has that pass key cap with the chip made into the key that starts the car itself and has a security feauture that will stop the car from starting if that key is wet, dirty or blown up( exposed to static thus blowing the chip) therre is one big differance though i have noticed on mine it done exactly what yours is but when driving or if i try to start mine in neutral the security light came on .

ok i know you are saying omg what price am i looking at and I honestly dont know since olds went out of business but before they went out it was going to cost me 800 for the chip 100 for key and 50 service fee
Now there is an alternative however to check this out and see if it is your key or not
if you have a second key try using it to start it and see if it does the same thing; if it does then its not the key but the security mechanisim inside the sterring column which means a new sterring column and possibly a new airbag system ( usually a shop Job) this security feature is nice however its alot of pain because after 3 minutes it shuts the car down completely ( the car thinks its stolen )
