Thanks for choosing FixYa first of all. It is in the charging system, we know that. You need to have your battery tested. Autozone or Advanced can do this. If the battery is good, you may need to simple clean your terminals and make sure everything is connected good. If that checks out, it may be an alternator going bad. Usually, you will see the lights dimming or windows going slower if this is the case. A bad battery can also cause this, so it will need to be checked. Check the battery first. If it is good, check your connections next.

I might be wrong, but I believe it is in the low pressure line going to the A/C compressor right between the radiator and the engine between the two cooling fans.

I have this same problem. Evidently there is some sort of malfunction in the security system. You have to put your key in the ignition and turn it on "on" for approximately 10 minutes. The security light will stop blinking, then go off. Turn the igition back to off. Now you should be able to crank the car. I have contacted alot of people about this and the only answer I get is they will not do a recall because it is not a life threatening situation.

How do I reset the service engine soon light on 2001 Olds Silhouette


A diagnostic scanner that reads OBD1 (the system by which your vehicle processes trouble codes) will be required, many parts stores do this a s a free service. Check with them to see if they charge. Remember though, when they read the car and turn the light off that in order for the light to stay off, the problem must be fixed. Even if it was a one time fluke of a problem, get the code that their scanner gives them so that you know what the issue is.
