Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora
sounds like there is a short somewhere. you need to start checking things with a multi meter, could be a bad switch. I would recommend picking up a factory service manual for your vehicle off of ebay. If you need any further assistance let me know.

There is most likely a problem with the tiny sensor in the ignition lock cylinder, it is not reading the key chip and locks u out, the problem is u can't just replace the lock cylinder u need a dealer only re-programm of the pass key system since the control module will not recognize the new lock code, catch 22 if u ask me. Do u have more than one key for the car? do both do this?

that's probably just bad spares. try going to a different store to have them cut (hardware stores are a good place to go) or you could go to a gm dealer too.

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.

That means it is passkey. There are 15 different resistance values that could be used to run your car. Do you have the original key that started your car with the old lock cylinder. If so take that key to a lock and key shop and the new key, the locksmith can measure the resistance of your old key, get the right key blank, then cut that key the same as the one that fits your new lock. Then you should be good to go. If you don't have the original key, it is alot harder. Let me know. I can tell you how to fix that too.

never heard of this happening before ,sounds more like the code reader behind the steering lock is playing up.If it is then its dealer only,have a funny feeling this could be an expensive repair.Sorry i couldnt be much more help but this fancy electronic stuff is designed to stop general mechanics like myself from doing repairs.
