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.

Sounds like anti-theft system problem ! There is a little red light center top of dash pad , When you try to start the vehicle does the light flash fast ? If the vehicle thinks it's being stolen it won't let truck crank over an it turns off the fuel injectors !

I turn the key on my 2000 alero 2.4l and nothing. the battery is new this past January. I am thinking that maybe the starter is bad? How do I est for his?


Hello: If the security lamp is NOT flashing then have some one hold the key in the start position and tap/hit the starter with a hammer it may start. If the starter does not respond to hitting it then take a test light and when the key is in the start position see if the test light comes on when you touch the small wire (purple) at the starter solenoid, remember to have someone hold the key in the start position when you do the test light test. If you have no voltage at the starter solenoid and the security light is flashing the you probably have a pass-lock security problem and you really need a scanner to interrogate the system to determine what component is giving the problem.

Does the starter for 98 buick regal custom have a in line fuse and how do i locate it my car wont start it wont even turn over the battery has a full charge and i had the starter tested it passed so the...


There is no inline fuse but there are a couple of things you can check.

One check for power on the large cable at the starter. There should be 12 volts all the time.

Check for power on the small purple wire at the starter. There should be power any time the key is in the crank position.

Let me know which is missing and I'll be happy to help you further figure it out.

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.
