There is no security light on. Turn the key off and then start the engine. Have replaced fuse panel under hood, pcm, checked all fusses, and lights. Battery keeps draining out also!! Any idea what might be casuing this? They said it was good. Also, check the owners manual if you have one.
. The PassLock security feature in these cars becomes unstable over time. Took battery out to have tested and the battery was good just low. If the battery and alternator have been tested and, if necessary, replaced , the most likely cause of the problem is a bad starter. I have a 1995 Grand Prix, and it was doing that same thing. Could hear pump run but get no gas.
Just to add, for those who try to use these instructions, the connectors for the starter have 3 nuts to remove connections. This is what I've learned over the last 26 hours. One of the 13mm nuts is a grounding connection for the starter's motor. The motor stalled and now it will not start. Not sure what else to check. The theft deterrent is disabling the starting of the vehicle because you have a problem with it.
Apr 12, 2010 Make sure your battery is fully charged and all terminals and connections are clean, first. Any advise is much appreciated. Let the car sit for a few minutes. It may be a good idea to pickup a Haynes manual for your specific car at an auto parts dealer who sells them for usually about 20 dollars. This process takes 15 to 30 minutes.
The light will start to blink off an on. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. Need to drop the tank, so let someone who has done it before do it, it's worth it. Earl Hi; The Pontiac dealership dosen't know either as they cannot get it to do it while they have it. If key doesn't have a pellet, it could be Passlock. There is one that can blow and will give you this symptom.
I suspect a problem with ignition. I had the battery checked at the auto parts store and I also put in a battery from another car and it still does the same thing. I changed the fuel pump and all the fuses and relays and it still wont start. When checking the voltage on the battery, it reads 12. I have an anit-theft radio, When I bought this vehicle I got a new cd player installed and I was on my way to work the next day and the car died like I ran out of gas. Right before I had this problem i found a misfire code on cyl.
If it cranks in N, but doesn't start, then you do the usual. The blown fuel pump fuse is actually pointing to the pump or circuit being bad. I took a 20amp fused jumper and jumped the cooling fan 1 relay from pin 87 to pin 30 and i get a click that comes from under my air box. Is there a way to test and see if it is a bad crank or cam sensor? I had already replaced the low coolant sensor years before. These are general ideas you could check. Checking the voltage at the starter reveals the same values as before. Sounds like very bad compression, timing belt, or fuel problem.
There is a inside the ignition cylinder that has an electronic password. I have put a socket wrench onthe main pulley aligns with the crankshaft I believe and can turn it in a counterclockwise direction. This would reset the passkey system to the key. I have a 2000 Grand Prix with a 3. Have 12 volts at battery and fuse box under hood. Pull a plug and see what it looks like.
For the 2000 year Pontiac Grand Prix I recall the relay names changed. You can see the fan belt move, while doing this, but it is difficult to turn. Remove the spark plugs and see if the plugs are dry and or very wet, one can clean the plugs, gap them and put a square edge on the end terminal if there or at least note the condition and colors, deposits etc, A bad cam sensor will not stop the car from starting but a bad crank sensor will!. Year, make, model, engine size. There are temporary fixes, like doing a re-learn of the theft deterrent, but the problem will come back.
