Your ignition key has an embedded chip.
If you have a spare, try that, don't use a simple copy that has no chip. You can use that copy for the doors, etc, but not the ignition.

You might turn key "upside down" if you get the same message again.

If you don't have a spare, a locksmith willhave to program a new key for you ($50) at Ace Hardware or True Value. ... Dealer ($80)

Hope this helps!

Everything you need to know is on this site. I found this site here on Fixya when my car was doing the same "security" thing. Fixed mine for really cheap. Its funny cuz i just keep seeing the same problem come up over and over, so i guess i'll just keep reposting this link. Good luck. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

99 olds aurora pass key problem


There is most likely a problem with the tiny sensor in the ignition lock cylinder, it is not reading the key chip and locks u out, the problem is u can't just replace the lock cylinder u need a dealer only re-programm of the pass key system since the control module will not recognize the new lock code, catch 22 if u ask me. Do u have more than one key for the car? do both do this?

WHEN I TRY TO START MY CAR IT SAYS STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT SYSTEM. THEN TELLS ME TO WAIT 3 MINUTES AND START CAR. AFTER 3 MINS IT DOES THE SAME THING


Sounds like the passive security system on the key. I've had this happen on a Chevy before. The fix I did was to clean the key with WD40, and to spray WD40 into the ignition switch. Put the key in, turn it a few times, spray WD40 in again. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times.
It cleans the contact points with the key contacts it.
