Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora
There is a way that you can bypass that all that you have to do is put a resister on the security wires that are white make sure that you have the right resister the way you do that is get a multi meter set it to ohms and match up your meter with the resister mind you that when you bypass the anti theft any one that has a key that fits your ignition will be able to start you car i have a remote start alarm on my car so when i arm my car you cannot start my car at all just something to think about

Cut thoes white wires and solder them to the resistor in the key secure them with shrink tube... you have saved a 600.00 repair bill!

It starts with the security light and then gets worse till the car won't start anymore. The security system (VATS/Passkey) installed on these GM cars is anti-owner more than an anti-theft. There are 3 parts involved: 1) The chip-key 2) The lock cylinder 3) The TDM (aka the brain of the system) if any of these parts fails or is even slightly malfunctioning, the car stays stuck where you are and you only get a dealer asking you about 1,000$ to fix it. And all the 3 parts have a quite short lifespan. Way too many people got in this situation (including myself). I don't recommend any partial solution or any used parts as it would happen again way too soon to be acceptable and if it happens 100 miles from home (like it happened to me....) it's a big burden. I finally made it to save my beloved 94 Park Avenue (with the same system that is installed in your car) with a solution that I found on the internet and that bypasses the entire factory security system, all 3 pieces altogether and you can even remove the TDM at the end and use 99c keys without chip. The product I used is at http://newrockies.com and is still working perfectly after 5 years. Don't go to the dealer!

SOURCE: when I try to 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.
