    Your car has a security key that does not match or the system is not functionong properly. Has anyone done any work on the car recently?

The problem is your passlock. I'm sure this is fixed by now, but if it happens again, just put the key in and turn it to "on". DON'T try to start the car. Leave it in the "on" position for about 10 minutes. Then turn it back to off, remove the key, and insert and start the car as normal.

I had the same problem. You have to turn the key to start and let it sit there for 10 min while the key is sitting on start after 10 min the security light should stop flashing and it should just stay on once that happens you can turn your rkey all the way and it should start

1998 sunfire want start


is the security light lit? try a different key to start.
if no start do the following.
try to start car then let go of key do not turn it off.
wait 15 min for security light to go out.
turn key off wait 5 seconds then try to start again.

the passkey system is not the best design, a little wear on the key and it won't start, if the tumbler wears out it won't start.

Have an Oldsmobile 1997 Achieva security light stays on and won't everyhing but still won't start , would like to know would the Pro VATS Full Bypass work on it.


If the security light is on, then you have a failed antitheft system. This light is only for this. If you bypass the system, your car will work perfectly again.

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.

When I try to start car, it won't start and security light blinks. I'v e had to ignition switches put on before and I had a new key made. Car still won,t start.


If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.
