How do I reset the passlock code for a 98
not sure if this is what you mean but I have 2 ways.... Make sure the key fob you purchase looks like the one you originally had, and is a GM key fob. Once you have it, open the fob, pop out the rubber insert, pull out the chip, and carefully slide the battery completely out. (If the batteries dead replace it now) Now reassemble the same way you just took it apart, walk out to your car, and hold both the lock and un-lock at the same time for 'bout 7 seconds. Your car should now be accessable with the key... That will only work if the remote was already "married" to the car using the GM ODBD2 scan tool or (for your car).... OR the following procedure:
ALL TRANSMITTERS MUST BE PRESENT WHEN PROGRAMMING NEW REMOTES!
1) Turn OFF ignition switch
2) Use a 3 amp fused jumper wire and connecte the terminal 8 (blk/wt) and terminal 4 (blk) wires at the data link connector. The data link connector is located on the drivers side bottom of dash panel
3) Close all the doors
4) Turn ON the ignition switch. The locks will cycle to LOCK
5) Press and hold LOCK and UNLOCK on one of the transmitters for 30 seconds.
6) After a 30 second delay the doors will LOCK and UNLOCK.
DO NOT TURN OFF THE IGNITION!
7) Repeat step 5 for each additional transmitter
8) Disconnect jumper wire from data link connector. Then turn ignition off and verify functions.
eBay is a good source for a replacement transmitter, but understand that they are NOT interchangeable. You must use the ONE that is meant for your car.

Security light let want let my 98 bonneville start
The security light picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.
