SECURITY LIGHT IN DASH CAUSES CAR TO

1999 Oldsmobile Alero

Electrical problem
1999 Oldsmobile Alero 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100k miles

hey I was wondering if you could help me out. My alero has a security light that comes on and wont allow the car to start. However if I leave the key on for 10 - 15 mins it will start then. Is there anyway I can unhook this security light problem or fix it. If so how. Thanks

GM PASS LOCK RELEARN- Ignition to " run" position, try to start and let key return to " run" position
Approx ten minutes security light will go off
turn key " off" and wait 5 seconds
repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 relearns. Turn key off, then start car

Not that Im aware of. You might be having a problem with the piece in the column that reads the keys, that is why it has to relearn them so often. Sometimes there gets to be a buildup of shavings from the key/tumbler that can cause interference
