Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Does it start and run? If so i would check the yellow wire going to the passlock in the ignition switch, If it doesn't then you may have a faulty pass lock system. you may need to take it to a repair shop and have it checked out.

The problem might be your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running, or start for 5 seconds and then die. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my regal for more than a year.
Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective.
Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did to fix the problem. For a list of cars effected by this problem. See the NEWROCKIES link on the right side of their page.........
----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites
