My security light came on also, but my van started with no problem....do you have the pass time feature in your van (where you have to turn the key & wait for the beep before you can start it)?

I called the dealership & talked to the mechanic & he said when the light comes on it means the pass time stuff needs to be serviced. I didn't have to end up taking mine in since the light went back off, but if it comes on again it's going in.

I had a similar problem. Check your battery, it is probably on the verge of dying. My problem went away when the battery was replaced.

My gas gauge does not work on my 2000 olds silhoutee, it jumps up and down. What does this mean?


Your problem is in the fuel pressure sending unit. It senses the level of the gas with floats on the fuel pump and the sensor on the sending unit (on the ring @ the top of the fuel tank) sends a signal to the computer in the van telling you how much gas you have by showing it on the gauge. Unfortunately you will have to change the whole sending unit.

My 2000 Olds Silhouette with 150k also had its low oil pressure light come on and is dinging. Any ideas of extent of problem and solutions.


Quite a few of these vans had issues with the instrument panel cluster causing this problem. There is an updated program to recalibrate the cluster to not set the low oil pressure light on. Go to a GM dealer and have them reprogram the IPC.

Can't find negative connection on remote terminal battery


Just attach the negative cable to any metal ground. This will protect the battery in the Olds and still enable you to jump start your car. Best of luck.

Air bag light on


On my 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette, the air bag light occasionally comes on. What I found is that under the drivers seat, there are some electrical connections. Make sure all of those are tight. Make sure you have nothing under the drivers seat pushing on the cables.

Silhouette will not start, but battery put out 12+ volts


You better have the alterntor checked, you said the battery was putting out 12v. was that with the car running or off? If it was running, it should have pushing between 14 and 15 volts, if it wasn't with it running, replace alternator.
