Ignition broke in my 2000 wh statesman


You will need to purchase and install a new ignition lock cylinder. You can have one keyed to your old key or (cheaper) get one with new keys.

How to reset anti-theft on a 2000 alero


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon 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 misinterprets 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 explains it pretty well.

I have a 2000 as well and I noticed a lot of vehicles in 2000 came out with smartcar chips in them as well as the key. I would check into your car and see if maybe you have the wrong key or if maybe if you do have a smart key if it has some loose wiring in the computer system. That's all I can think of sorry.

2000 oldsmobile alero ignition key difficult to turn. Must wiggle before it will move to the right. Any clues for a cheap fix?


Cheapest solution is to get a new key cut and try that. A new lock cylinder is not too hard to replace, but costs around $170

I just replaced the starter in my 2000 olds alero and now it wont start it keep flashing securty....it thinks it is benig stolen....how can I fix this


Most likely you replaced the starter because it wouldn't crank over. If this is correct and the security light was flashing before replacing the starter, then most likely you have a problem with the pass-lock system. If your ignition cylinder is located in the dashboard, you will need to remove it and replace the passlock housing.

Parked the car a few days later went to start car and ignition won't turn but the steering wheel is not locked either. took cable off the shifter and can't get that to move either.


Get new key and spray type liquid wrench,squirt into cylinder then slide key in and out of cylinder several times before trying to turn,Debri from worn key tends to build up in cylinder.This will sometimes free it up.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.
