Oldsmobile Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry for the long wait
are you sure the theft system is causing this issue ?
the engine will not physically crank over ?
what you need to do is cut those 2 wires then with a multi meter measure the resistance of the chip in your ignition key side to side then pick up a resistor that reads the same resistance of your chip in the key then connect one of those cut wires going to the steering column to one end of the resistor then the other cut wire going to the column to the other end of the resistor so it kind of is in a loop so to say that should bypass the ignition lock cylinder which is most common for the wiring being bad at the back of the ignition lock cylinder causing this issue
but usually bypassing the ignition lock like i said will do the trick
which 2 wires did you add the resistor on ?
the harness side cut 2 wires or the ignition lock / steering column side of the 2 cut wires ?
you need to be sure you connected the resistor to the two cut wires going to the column not the 2 cut doming down from the column
