Car wont crank


My 2003 Oldsmobile alero does this on occasion. Turn the key over just to the on position, not the acc (all the way) position. You will see the security light blinking during this time. After ten minutes, the light will stop flashing and you can now turn the key OFF and then crank the car. It's annoying but so simple.

When you try to start my 99 Alero the security light starts blinking and it will not start. The light blinks for about ten to twelve minutes before going off.


The Problem is your VATS security system. I just fixed this in my 96 regal 3 days ago. You can go the cheap way, and bypass the key. (link #1) or spend 200 bucks and rip that whole garbage system out of your car. (link 2) I bypassed my key, worked for about a year till the computer part started failing. then i just did a full rip out.

I am having the same issue with my anti-theft device in my 2003 Alero. Last year it stopped running and would not turn-over. $400 later, Brakemax said they just had to reset the anti-theft device. oK,...


the shop that told you they ripped it out only ripped you off unless they removed some aftermarket alarm system i,m a gm mechanic and if you remove the factory anti-theft on a 2003 olds alero it will not run ever again until re-installed make sure your battery is charged good turn igntion switch to run position but do not try to start security light should be flashing let car sit with switch on and light flashing for ten minutes light should stop flashing now start your car this is how to reset anti-theft was that worth $400.00 and again why let a bussiness named brakemax look at a no start condition keep on and you will be BROKE to the max HOPE THIS HELPS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM YOUR FRIEND @ HELPMAX

Programing ignition key for 2000 grand am security light comes on and the car will not start for 10 to 15 minutes.


Turn the key on and wait for the security light to stop blinking (may take about ten minutes). Then turn the key off and wait for at least one minute. Then try to start. That should program the key chip.

My 2003 ols Alero turns over and wont start. Sometimes it does. Crank trigger has been changed as well as fuel modulator. Back at the shop without a clue.


Is the security light blinking when this happens? (right hand side of the dash?) If so, it may be your passlock fuel shut off is going wacko? In the manual it tells how to reset the system. It involves leaving the key on for ten minutes until the security light stops blinking, shutting the key off, and then starting the vehicle. Check your manual. I had the 'no start' problem. I had it towed to the mechanic (with the key in the on position) and by the time I got there, it started.

2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start


With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.
