    I have had the key cylinder changed twice on my 96 Buick Skylark Grand Sport and still having the same trouble. The car will start, it runs for about 3 seconds and shuts off with the theft system light on. I have reset the computer time and again and the car WILL run great for a day or two and then it gets back into the same routine. Is there a way to bypass the theft system? If so... PLEASE help me out before I take a hammer to it.

1997 Buick Skylark sometimes wont start


Your car's alarm might have bad wiring or connectors. You could try cleaning & reconnecting them. Or use a multimeter to see if you can find connectivity issues.

If the alarm itself might be the culprit, having a garage remove/disconnecting it is the cheapest solution (less than a $100), having it replaced could be really expensive ...

It could be a security problem. These vats systems are known for it. There would be a light illuminated on the dash somewhere that would say SECURITY. Here is a link on the antitheft security system to help you.

My 1996 Buick Skylark keeps cutting out and dying while driving down the road


This may be due to the antitheft system. GM's are notorious for these parts failing. When it dies again, look for a light that says "security" somewhere on the dash. If you see this light, this link should help you. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Buick does not start when theft system comes on


I had the same problem with ours...

It ia a faulty ign switch lock (the sensor) > Expensive part >

Temp fix;

remove the cover underneath the steering column and locate the thin white flat (3) wire (runs from the ignition key lock down to a connector.

After starting the the car , dis-connect the connector under the dash that the Ign lock goes to , after that the car should start everytime.

You will need to replace the lock assy. if you want to fix this correctly ; I have been using ours for (6) months > no problem except the "Theft System " light stays on -

Alarm system goes off by itself


Your system may have a backup battery that has low voltage when the car is turned off. You may have to look under the dash to see if you can find the main computer for the alarm.
