Abstract. We complete the analysis of the symmetry algebra $\mathcal{L}$ for
systems of $n$ secondorder linear ODEs with constant real
coefficients, by studying the case of coefficient matrices having
a nondiagonal Jordan canonical form. We also classify the Levi
factor (maximal semisimple subalgebra) of $\mathcal{L}$, showing
that it is completely determined by the Jordan form. A universal
formula for the dimension of the symmetry algebra of such systems
is given. As application, the case $n=5$ is analyzed.
