"didn't start" means the starter worked but the engine didn't ignite? Could be a vacuum lock problem. Check your fuel return and vapor recovery circuits.

How to reprogram key


1. Perform a security system relearn.

2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.

3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.

4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.

5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.

most likely your key got erased from memory make sure you are using a chip key, in a 3 times 30 minutes put your key on (without starting the engine) and live it on for 10 minutes,shut it of and back on the same way for another 10 minutes,do it again 10 minutes more at the end shut it off wait 30 seconds and start the car,if it is not a brand new key it may take 1 or 2 times this sequence to get it to start. let me know

I have a 2001 Pontiac grad Am and my security


turn the key to the run position. do not go to crank. leave the key on for 10 minutes and the system should reset.
Here's the "fix" I just did for my 99 tahoe. Took the cover off the steering column, unplugged the sensor from the cylinder *while* the car was running. it's a 3 wire plug red w/ white, orange w/black and yellow. From then on, the car will always start and ignore the sensor. The only negative is the security light stays on. But, I plan to just remove the bulb. Replacing the BCM only postpones it from happening again. Check out the following links. As an electrical engineer, I also believe there is an inherent design flaw because there are too many issues reported. Good luck.

2001 pontiac grand will not start all of a sudden. ran fine this


The problem may be the security issue. Do you see a security light? Dust gets into the ignition tumbler and causes a bad contact with the sensor prompting a false security issue.

I had the same problem and thought it was a fuel pump issue, but after a $500 replacement ordeal, I later encountered the same issue again.

To resolve:
Insert the key and turn on ignition tumbler to ACC on (Position prior to engaging the starter)
Wait around ~15-20 minutes (The security light will change... I believe it will flash when the security reset...it's been a long time...sorry)
Afterward, turn the ignition tumbler and off
Your card should start there after

Tumbler maintain: Blow some compress air to prevent this incident from happening.

Hopefully this will resolve your issue without the need of spending any further $$$!
