1998 leSabre security will not let the car start, what can I do?

Posted on Apr 02, 2009


Try rubbing a q-tip soaked in alcohol inside the ignition. you are attempting to clean the contacts inside. also clean the chip on the key. this solved my problem. keeping a key chain without a bunch of weight on it (other keys or many key chains) may also help correct this problem

I have a new battery and alltinator but my car still wont start

Have the starter tested! Check the cables to see if they are in good condition. Check the cable that goes to the starter. They all need tight connections.Don`t know the year,make and model. but older cars have a solenoid switch that is not on the starter.

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.

Cart will not start untill security light goes. I don't have any means to activate/deactivate security system

Depending on the year, make, and model, this link should help you out. The security light only comes on if you are using the wrong key, trying to hotwire the car, or the system is failing. Most likely the system is failing..... There is no reset button or deactivation of these systems, the problem must fixed or bypassed. I've had great luck with just bypassing the system entirely. These systems are known to fail and cost up to 1000 bucks to fix. Trust me on this. Bypass it. You can fix this yourself. Read about it on this link

I changed engines from a 1996 chevy cavalier to a 1997 cavalier,i don't get any gas or fire won't start

These cars were made with an anti theft security system. If you swapped motors, you may have interupted that system causing the the security to turn off the ijector fuel. Just a thought.

1996 grand am starts but then kills

GM's are notorious for having problems with the antitheft security system. Especially Grand Ams, I don't know why. When these start to fail, you get problems like you're experiencing now. You start the car, and then the car stalls in 1-5 seconds. If you see a light on your dash that says "security" when you try to start the car, then this is 100% your problem. Here is a link on the subject. Tons of info and some "do it yourself" solutions.

Why when my windows don't go down my car wont start

This might be antitheft related. The security system can shut down many parts of the car. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY when this happens? If so, check out this link
