Question about 2000 Buick Century
My key wouldnt work. It wouldnt turn or anything. In order to replace the lock cylinder you have to be able to turn key. Instead of drilling out ignition lock cylinder I got the bright idea to replace the steering column that came with different keys. Well all that is done and I cant start the vehicle due to passkey system. What are my options??
The BCM (body control module) is seeing the wrong passkey code. You will have to find out what passkey code is being used in the new steering column you installed them see if the BCM can be reprogrammed for it Some can not be reset.

Hello! Disconnect the battery before beginning...Guru....saailer
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The switch is located inside the channel section of the brake pedal support and is completely inaccessible without first lowering the steering column. The switch is actuated by a rod and rack assembly. A gear on the end of the lock cylinder engages the toothed upper end of the rod.
Lower the steering column, be sure to properly support it.
Put the switch in the OFF, unlocked position. With the cylinder removed, the rod is in the lock position when it is in the next to the uppermost detent. The OFF, unlocked position is two detents from the top.Remove the two switch screws and remove the switch assembly
Before installing, place the new switch in the OFF, unlocked position and make sure the lock cylinder and actuating rod
are in the OFF, unlocked (third detent from the top) position.
Install the activating rod into the switch, then assemble the switch onto the column. Tighten the mounting screws. Use only the specified screws since over length screws could impair the ability of the steering column to collapse. Reinstall the steering column.

Make sure all the fuses are good. Check the fuse panel inside the car and the fuse box under the hood. Find the starter relay and swap it with another one and see if the starter works. If that didn't make any difference, try this:Make sure the transmission is in park, emergency brake on. Turn the ignition key on. Find where the positive battery cable is attached to the starter. Attach one end of a jumper cable to the connection. Take the other end of the jumper cable and ground it against the starter solenoid where the wires are connected. This should start the car, or at least make the starter work.If the car starts but won't stay running, then it is probably the security system at fault. If you went to a dealership for the new switch and keys, you probably paid quite a bit for it.There is a cheaper way to fix it, and it will last forever. It's a bypass system from a company called New Rockies. I think you should check out this website: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass.
