You may have the same problem I ran into and have to turn your key on don't start the car yet wait about ten seconds with key on on position then turn it over should stop the security lite from coming on all the time and locking the fuel lines. let me know if this worked
A mechanic told me maybe if I replace the ignition that may be it setting off the security sensors? I don;t know I just wait ten seconds with the key on before I start it and as long as I do that it seems to work every time.

My 1998 buick century 3.1 will not start. I changed starter , I changed the ignition switch , I even jumped the battery to starter with a push button , It now will turn or crank , but ,, it still will not...


THERE IS A CHIP IN THE KEY I BELIEVE. THERE IS A RELEARN PROCEDURE YOU CAN TRY IF WHEN YOU TRY AND START IT THE SECURITY LIGHT FLASHES. HOOK UP A BATTERY CHARGER. TURN THE KEY ON AND TRY AND START THE CAR AND RELEASE . DO NOT TURN KEY OFF LEAVE IT IN THE RUN POSITION. AFTER 10 MINS THE LIGHT WILL STOP FLASHING. TURN KEY OFF. TRY AND RESTART CAR AND AGAIN DO NOT TURN KEY OFF LEAVE IN THE RUN POSITION. LET SET 10 MINS AGAIN. LIGHT WILL STOP FLASHING AFTER THAT 10 MINS. DO IT AGAIN FOR THE 3RD TIME. SHUT KEY OFF LET SET 5 SECONDS AND START THE VEHICLE. HOPE THIS HELPS

Security light cons on


try a different key, the light will come on and stay on if the tumbler is not reading the resistor in the ignition key.
if that doesn't work try to start car, then don't turn key off leave it in on position for about 10 until the security light goes out, turn key off then try to start again.

The antitheft will need reprogrammed when you are done. But it is fairly easy to do. Just leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing. (10 min).

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.
