Asked by Jul 04, 2009 at 12:25 PM about the 1997 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Car Customization

Is there a way to over ride the secutity system on the car ?
Needed to have fixed once before and am tired of having late night triple A
calls and the huge cost of repair.

There is a way to override the PASS KEY SYSTEM> I took mine to a local starter rebuilder. He read the resistor on the key and installed a resistor somewhere in the steering column of the same value and my problem was solved for $35.00! Of course the theft deterrent WILL BE DISABLED, But your car will start. Hope this helps you out, Good luck, Lee
