The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars/years. When the TDM starts failing, it will do it gradually and the car will begin to randomly don't start and then get worse with time up to a point that it won't start anymore. It's been a nightmare for us. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my 94 Park Avenue that has the same security system.

If you have a remote key fob for your locks etc it very much sounds like the battery is dead which will cause the car to"lockdown" so-replace battery. Good luck!

My 2001 oldsmobile alero will not start, I put gas and it would not crank over. Then the security light started flashing so I turned the key to the on poistion and was waiting 10 minutes and during that...


im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.

The security light is flashing, keeping the car from starting, you may have a key or anti theft problem. A shop that has a Tech2 scanner will need to ck it out.
