Your vehicle is equipped with the Passlock theft-deterrent system.

Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent system. Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder has not been tampered with.

During normal operation, the SECURITY light will go off approximately five seconds after the ignition key is turned to ON and the engine is started.

If the SECURITY light flashes with the key to ON, wait 10 minutes until the light goes off. Then turn the ignition to OFF before attempting to start the engine.

In an emergency, call the Oldsmobile Roadside Assistance Center at 1-800-442-OLDS or 1-800-442-6537. (In Canada, call 1-800-268-6800)

Hope helps.

Yes. This car has a security system. The key has a chip in it that tells the computer that it is the right key starting the car. There is a computer in the steering column that receives the signal from the key. Sometimes the computer doesn't receive the right signal because the key is failing, the wrong key, or possibly the computer is malfunctioning. But with it working sometimes then I would say that the problem is in the key itself.

    Right. The one that starts the car has a chip built in the black part of the key. This is what I was talking about that sends the signal to the computer.

My 2004 impala dashboard lights come on while driving it doesn't cut of but after I cut the car off headlights flash an clickin noise start what wrong with my car please help Loretta


Impala's are famous for ignition issues, are the interior lights of your dash coming on when you want them, or just by themselves? The clicking after you turn off, I would check the security system, i.e., remote clickers, cars computer, key chip, ect. Sound like your alarm is attempting to engage

sounds like maybe the immobilizer is activating. try using the key to lock and then unlock the driver's door, resetting the alarm system. the lights should be flashing when this happens but you never know. its a shot in the dark.

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

Jeep alarm will not turn off


The ignition security on/off is located at the trunk lock. unlock and lock rear gate and the alarm will turn off. My jeep sat in my drive for a month before a jeep tech told me this. It still triggers the security sometimes when I unlock the passenger door with the key and I go straight to the rear gate lock and it shuts off instantly.
