There isnt a fuse for the theft system. You need to take the coloum cover off. Should be 3 screws and you will see all the wires in there. The ones you need are three togather. White Black and Yellow. Get the car started and cut the yellow wire. The theft light will come on and stay on but will bypass the theft system. If it is a 2 wire system you will see two little metal strips on the upper side of the key. You have to use a ohm meter and measure the resistance of the strip in there. Its a resistor used to tell the theft computer the key is in there. Anyway find out what the resistance is and buy a resistor from radio shack and look under the steering wheel for the 2 very small guage wires in a yellow cover....NOTE not the air bag wires. Simply cut those wires ( the 2 white ones) and on the set going away from the steering wheel strip the wires and put the resistor one one wire and the other end of it to the other wire....That will disable that system. If its the 2 wire and you have issues getting it simply take the car to a car audio place that does remote starts and for a nominal fee they will do it for you. My records show that it has the 3 wire system.

some cars have a plastic cover over the headlight area, all you do is pull it off. it's velcro. you don't need much room because all you need to do is twist the bulb and pull it out.

I do not know if you have either the 3.8L or 3.8L Super Charger, or what Engine Options (AC/No AC, etc.) you have. The Link has several Diagrams to match your specific vehicle engine.

How do I clear the codes for my1991 Oldsmobile 88 royal. I had to change the etc 41 sensor & the mass air sensor. Now I need to clear them and don't know how


disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes should do it on pre OBD cars that came about in '96. I've learned odd tricks such as turning the key three times or othters involving the trippometer to pull codes from various late model or post '96 OBD cars but know of no procedure for your '91

1997 oldsmobile 88 won't start the security light


Im guessing you tried to bypass the key in the ignition/steering column. This is ok unless the actual problem was in the TDM (theft deterrent module) In this case, the 2 wire bypass does nothing. There is another way to bypass this. Check out this link for tons of info and some DO IT YOURSELF options. Ive done several key bypasses and tons of full bypasses. They both work well, it just depends on what part is failing. I think you need the full bypass to eliminate that TDM.

96 Olds 88 with 92,000 miles runs fine but security light on dash won't go off. No problem in starting. Should I do anything?


If you brought it to our GM shop, we would bypass your Pass-Key sensor to eliminate any future problems.

Yes, the key,ignition, or Theft Deterrent Module is not funtioning properly. You can start changing these out 1 by 1, or bypass the whole system for about the cost of a new key. This link explains and will help you.
