    Cudos to PRINCE_OF_DA. I had the same exact problem and his solution worked with a minor modification...I used contact cleaner instead of WD40. WD is more of a lubricant. Contact cleaner evaporates almost immediately.



    Thanks again!

To follow up on my previous comments Coss 71's solution only lasted for 1 day. The final solution was that I had to have the ignition switch replaced. The contacts in the ignition were no longer able to read the key.

Sounds like the passive security system on the key. I've had this happen on a Chevy before. The fix I did was to clean the key with WD40, and to spray WD40 into the ignition switch. Put the key in, turn it a few times, spray WD40 in again. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times.
It cleans the contact points with the key contacts it.

Starting: car will not start; dash reads "starting


Hello, RW Betton,

Here is a few things to try then please read toward the bottom. Please read my whole page here of ideas for you.

Question? when it does disable it usually will say " starting disabled due to theft system remove key from ignition and wait 3 minutes'. Are you able to start car after the 3 minutes? or it wont period? My car does this a lot to but I think its cause you have to unlock the car, get in it, shut the doors and then start the car because mine does it when i open the doors.

Also some times if you have a chip in your key will do this as they ware out, and would have to try you back up key (if you have one) and if turns out to be your key, that has bad chip, dealer would have to replace that.

Finally, this is your other choice as well below, and you can click on that site and it should help you. Most the times this whole issue is triggered from the key itself into the ignition, that cause this.

If you have the GM pass lock system in that car, this is a site that will show you how to disable it:

tml


However, if it were my car I would see what the dealer will charge to fix it first. It may just be a simple reprogramming is needed or a inched wire in the steering column. I would want the car to have an anti theft system working as it should.

I hope my free advice has helped you, and if you could please rate my help accordingly and some kind words too. I appreciate it, and keep me informed on progress. Here is also my direct link for all my services I offer to help you.

That is my personal page of all my areas of ads of my expertize. Mike

How can I bypass a anti auto theft system on my 1990 cadillac seville?


I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer

Starter disabled due to theft system


the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out
