Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
Is probably the Pass key security system. On your main key you may have a little black raised dot. This is a resistor for the Pass system. make sure you can see a little copper line on each side of the black dot. Sometimes this gets worn or dirty and if the vehicle does not recognize the proper key, it will go into security mode and not start. I think you have to wait like 1/2 hour to try again. Had this happen to a customer of mine who had a key made at Home Depot (without the black dot). Good luck.
