Customer Question
I have a 1990...

I have a 1990 olds dela 88 royale brougham. sometimes it starts and runs fine sometimes i will run and idle for 5-10 mins and die. there are often times it'll drive and suddenly stall. then not start..itll start later. when i turn the ignition key sometimes the security light will come on and it will chime 3 times. it does not have the original key. i bought it used it has an "oem" replacement ignition without any sort of chip we just replaced it..it has one like this one i got it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

I did replace the crankshaft position sensor, the throttle position sensor is new also

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your MINI?

The security light flashes when this happens. no clue how to reset the security system. :( i have no remote it has no passlock key ..but i have no idea if it came with one originally. the girl i got it from replaced the ignitio n switch and claimed it didnt have a chip key.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its a 1990 oldsmobile delta 88

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing i can think of

ive taken the car on 20 min drives and it will be ok.sometimes without stalling. it seems moody. sometimes when it stalls during a drive the security light will flash and will do so when i try and start it again. then later it will start with no flashing light and run briefly. engine does crank, starter engages. it is a colomn shift automatic. has the 3800 engine.

Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

The first step to do is check injection pulse, fuel pressure and ignition spark when it does not want to start anymore.
