Question about 1997 Buick Skylark
Hi, I have a 97 Buick Skylark and i am having problems with the key ignition which lock on me and wouldn't turn. So i got somebody to fix it that person told me that they know what they were doing. But really didn't know and now i need a new steering column ( I guess) because he messed it up. And i have to start the car with a screwdriver but the car will not stay running.I'm not sure what to do i was told that i would need a new steering wheel and the key that goes with that are they might can program my key.
You were told almost right. Sounds as though you will need another steering column and a new key to use. The reason why your car will not stay running is because of the chip. Most likely your car has a vehicle anti-theft device installed from the factory. (VAT) Module. Or if it starts with a screwdriver if wouldn't have that. Check with a dealer or mechanic that you can trust to find out more. Being that the car is 11 years old, a dealer may not be the best solution and best by a mechanic to get one from a salvage yard. You can have a mechanic check your VIN # or look in your owner's manual to see if a anti-theft device is on your car first.
