How to disable the vats security system on my 2001 oldsmobile alero?


you cant disable it, its a pass key system not a vats system (vats reads a resistance value in the key). The ignition cylinder has a sensor in it that measures a rotating resistance (then translates into a voltage reading) that the bcm reads to let the car know to start. Usually you can try and start the car, then the security light will start flashing - leave the key in the on position for ten minutes until the security light goes out. Then turn the key off, wait, then try and restart - they usually relearn the code after the first 10 minute try. Sometimes it takes three 10 minute cycles.

I 'v been this roblems over 3 years and spent so much money to fix it. My 1999 Oldsmobile Alero wont start with security theft light flashing. I have to wait for 10 minutes and then if i lucky it may...


SOUND LIKE THE THEFT SECURITY PROBLEMS. MOST OF THE TIME.THE IGNITION KEYS OR IGNITION SWITCH KEY LOCK CYLINDER WORN WHERE THE BCM AND PCM DONT RECOGNIZE KEY OR SWITCH SIGNAL.SO THE BCM AND PCM WILL GO IN THEFT SECURITY MODE.THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO FIX.BECAUSE IF THE KEYS , IGNITION SWITCH AND LOCK CYLINDER AND BCM HAS TO REPLACED.THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPROGRAM USING DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT. NOT A HOME FIX.YOU WILL NEED TO GET FIX SOON AS POSSIBLE.BECAUSE FAULTY SECURITY THEFT CODE WILL SHUT DOWN VECHICLE FUEL SYSTEM WHILE DRIVING OR IT WILL GET TO A POINT WHERE CAR WONT START NO MORE.THIS FIX WILL COST ABOUT $600.00.

Sercurity no start


If your security lite is blinking on the dash board with the key on then your security fuel line is locked.
quick fix leave the key in the ignition for 10 minutes IN THE ON POSITION <===very important to leave key in for ten minutes on the on position! security lite should stop blinking and fuel will get into the lines you may need to spray some quick start in the intake
remove the air filter hose and spray in the intake and start her up.
you may have the same problem I ran into and have to turn your key on don't start the car ye wait about ten seconds with key on on position the 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

Car doesn't start randomly. "security" light comes on and off. Have to leave key in "on" position for 10 min. to reprogram. Is there a fix?


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.
