I would call this a solution, I am not sure if the car has a security code or not, you can find this out by a Haynes manual for your specific make and model of car. One will cost you about $20.00 or a little more. But, it is well worth the price, you get all the Tech. info for your vehicle and it is a great source of troubleshooting. However, if you can't afford the price tag, then try asking around at Advance or Auto Zone...they could tell you if the car comes with one or not and may be able to tell you how to fix the problem.

1999 Buick Century Custom Security light blinks and car will not start


someone told me to by getting out of the car and locking the driver door with the key, going to the front passenger door and unlocking, then relocking the door using the key. I have to repeat this step 2-4 times and eventually it will start. ?????????
This has nothing to do with it starting !

This is what's happening , Inside the lock cylinder are contacts that read the resistance of the pellet on the key , the contacts are getting worn out . You have two options , replace the lock cylinder or by-pass it all together .
The PASS-Key II® ignition key (1) contains a unique resistor pellet which is idenified by the Body Control Module (BCM) (2). There are 15 different key (resistor) codes. Only one ignition key resistor pellet code will work with each PASS-Key II® theft deterrent system.
Ignition Key Lock Cylinder
The ignition lock cylinder contains spring loaded contacts which make physical contact with the ignition key when it is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder. This allows the ignition lock cylinder to provide the Body Control Module (BCM) (2) with the resistor code embedded in the ignition key.

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.

When I start the car it starts but then shuts off. Someone told me the reason for that is because the gaspump is out is that true?


no that is not true, if the is the pump is out the car wouldn't start, it may be missing a vaccum line, get a code reader and see if it has a check engine code.

2004 CAVALIER WAS RUNNING FINE ONE DAY AND NOW IT WILL START BUT ONLY RUNS 2-3 SECS AND SHUTS OFF


This sounds like the theft deterrent feature is activated..take a look at the security light when this happens..is it flashing?? if so try a different key or you may have to replace the Ignition cylender and relearn the theft deterrent system...only done at a shop or someone that knows what their doing..

2003 OLds Alero Security Light


it takes 10 minutes for it to go out. it's not so much a problem with your ignition as it is with the Passlock 2 system. go to passlock2.com and should be able to find your solution there.

Security System on 2002 Oldsmobile Alero


the most common cause of this is the key, to check this use another working key, if the problem persists the ignition lock cylinder sensor is defective and the lock cylinder must be replaced, the dealer will need to do this as the security system must be re-programed to accept the new key code.

Troublestarting sometimes


The igniter in the distributor may be going out. The main relay is under the dash and it very well could be an issue as well, but ususally when it goes bad, the car won't start at all.
