    Sorry couldnt be more help, but thats your only option. Go to the dealer and tell them to do what you need and nothing else. I work on cadillacs exclusively, and i do what the customer asks, if i see something i alert them, but don't do anything without their ok first.

My 96 caprice classic vats security system has y car shut down. I had a after market ATS security chip also in my car and I removed it thinkingvthat was the problem. It wasnt.


OK. Turn on the key, let the light start flashing. Leave the key in the ON position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. The VATS security is supposed to discourage a thief from stealing your car. It will flash for 10 minutes and then it will stop flashing. Now,,,,,, DO NOT turn off the key. DO NOT turn it off. Simply take ahold of the key and crank the car up. It will start and should never happen again, unless someone removes the instrument cluster, the battery, or other vital items like the ECM PCU. Good luck.

1998 GMC Sonoma won't start click sound. lights come on but not starting.


Is the security light on somewhere on the dash when this happens? This sounds like a classic case of the security system shutting down the starter and going into antitheft mode. Read up on the link for some symptoms and do it yourself solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Driving down the road the car will shut off 1998 Olds Intrigue. Sometimes it will start right back up. Other times it has to set for awhile like to cool down or something. Other times it will not start...


Next time this happens, check to see if the SECURITY light shows up on the dash. The security that comes on that vehicle can actually kill the motor if its not comminicating properly.

If there is a light, check out this link http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

1998 STS won't start


If none of the gauges are or "idiot" lights are working then I'd start looking for a voltage problem. Like an ignition switch. If the lights are coming on and the scurity light is on steady or flashing then you would have a security problem.

1998 cad alarm no start


Your GM product has a safety alarm, it shuts down the radio , or locks it.
I send ours to a GM dealer to get it unlocked. They don't give those codes out.
