Hi dclementi
The problem is very likely that the imobilizer either reset or has failed you will need to very likely have that reinitialized by a dealer. If your immobilizer is of the type with a magnetic swipe it could also be that the particular swipe fob you have may have lost its coding (battery could be depleted) some of these work on magnetic basis and it could have lost its magnetic charge. Try one of the spares if you have them and the car should start.
I hope that helps Philipp Tomorrowsdriver.com

WillNot start batt., good starter, good all fuzzes good


If the engine is not cranking over, it could be the clutch safety switch
(standard trans), Neutral safety switch (automatic) or ignition switch.

If the engine is cranking but not starting, it is not the starter, battery
or alternator. Check fuel supply, ignition and compression.

I have a 2001 Olds Intrigue that won't start every once in a while. When it won't start the security light flashes so GM told me it was the passcode and I would have to change the ignition switch...


you can not bypass the security in that car, it is built into the main computer, they have problems with the ignition switch screwing up and the only way to start it while the light flashes is to turn the key to ON but don't crank engine, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes until light goes out then start car.

1998 oldsmobile intrigue and security light keeps coming on flashing and the car won't start. but now its not flashing and the car still wont start what do i do or what could be wrong?


The problem is in the key or ignition. Aside from the key working like a normal key, it also has a chip or transponder in it that is part of the security antitheft system. The key is then read by the ignition and must communicate the correct signal. If there are any break in communication, the system goes into anti theft and locks out the starter. Might be a key issue or an ignition issue. The fact that the light is flashing, indicates key or ignition. If it were solid, then the problem would be the Theft Deterrent Module (TDM) that is the main computer of the security system. You can either fix the problem part, take it to a dealer who is authorized to fix it, or bypass it entirely. This link explains the system and how you can fix it yourself. 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/

Car wont crank


I have a 2000 Olds Intrigue that has the starting problem that some people have spoke about. You turn the key and all lights come on but the car will not start nothing. I 1st replaced the ignition switch which did not correct the problem. To get around the problem I have connected a wire to my starter and ran the wire up to the battery and when the car acts up I take the wire touch the positive pole on the battery post and the starter will turn over. I then get in my car and use the key and start the car. I have not been stranded by the car since. I try the key a few times if nothing happens I'll wait a few minutes and if that does not do it I jump the starter with my wire. This has been working for the last 2 years. It's not a correction but it is a work around.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.
