Help with Possible Passlock System problem

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Help with Possible Passlock System problem

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue, I believe that my passlock system was engaged and now my car will not kick over.. You can start it for a few secs by jumping the starter, but it shut off quickly. I tried to put the key into the ignition for 10 mins and that did not work. I checked all the fuses and fusible links. I even unconnect the battery to see if it resets itself. None of this seem to work, Is there a way to reset the passlock system or disengage it all together if the car is not running at all??? Please help me out here... Thanks

You are correct: Passlock is not supposed to fail while the car is running. That is the secret behind bridging the system - with the car running, one cuts the wire and installs the toggle.

You probably need to report this problem to a dealership and, if there is no satisfaction there for a reasonable price or for free as a recall, contact the NTSB Battery . Losing all power while you're on an interstate definitely is a safety problem.

Good Luck!!
