How to reset the alarm on my buick lasabre won't let me start my car


If you have a key with a computer chip inside, you may need to try another key. The ignition lock "reads" the resistance in your key to let the ignition work. If you only have one key you may need to get a new one.

Remove broken key from gm ignition lock


Physically removing a piece of an ignition key from the tumbler is practically impossible. The tumbler is filled with spring loaded tabs which raise and lower against EVERY notch on a key. That resistance will fight your every motion as you try to back the key remnant out. As one tab releases, the next in line raises into the vacancy just created. GM, even with the "fob"/ chip installed in most of their keys, also put greater anti-theft detail into their ignition tumblers. IF this is an ignition lock that has a chip sensor, the practical repair is a complete key/tumbler replacement. This isn't a DIY repair. It will involve removing the steering wheel and column covers, air bag, AND re-coding the vehicle computer to accept and recognize the new key/chip code. The re-coding CAN be done at home. Immediately after the new tumbler is installed, leaving the ignition in the "run" position for 1 hour, will re-code the antitheft in the computer.

How much would it be to by pass the vat system on a 97 buick lasabre ?


A new ign lock cylinder is about $41.00 . Find wire at bottom of steering column just behind lower cover. Unplug wire and plug new lock cylinder wire into it. Place your old key with chip in it into the new cylinder. Now with a copy of old key or extra key start car. Hide new lock cylinder under dash and problem solved.

Car has been running fine. Parked and locked from the inside, not with remote. Few hours later unlocked with remote and car will not start, not even a click. Have checked all connections, wires, fuses...


I just wrote a repair for a guy to replace the passlock sensor, but it doesn't sound that extreme. Your key has a chip in it for the passlock security system, there are 13 different resistences for these chips. Make apsolutely sure the key you had cut, has the same coded resistence (eg. code 2 will turn the cylinder of a code 3 ignition, but will shut down in a few seconds.) If you have a code 2 key make sure you order a code 3 key before you have it cut. All 13 different keys can be cut to be able to turn in the ignition but only the right code will stay running.

1994 buick lasabre intermitten starting problem souds like pass lock not reading key


That would most likely be a key fab problem or your passlock system which is very common on gm vehicles. You can try reprogramming the key or get a spare key and program that one. I can give you instructions if you'd like.
Another thing you can try if the anti-theft system is activated, is put key in ignition, turn to ON position for exactly 10 minutes, as soon as anti-theft light turns off, then immediately start the car.
They also sell passlock bypass systems fairly cheap.

1997 buick lasabre radio locked


You must take it to a dealership and they will unlock it for you. There is a specific dealer code that will unlock any radio and once they do it, you pick one that you will remember. This is part of the anti theft. Hope this helps.
