There is a huge problem with these cars and there security system, most likely the problem is routed back to the passlock unit. Its the part that is around the ignition switch that picks up the security signal sent out by your coded key. They go bad all the time. I would reccomend replacing that, and when you do that the keys need to be programmed to the new unit. Its not something i would reccomend doing yourself unless you have the knowledge of the system.

Reset code for a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT radio


unfortunately you would only have the code if you bought it new, each code is radio specific and can only be obtained by the dealer, if you have the owners manual it might have been written down by the original owner if that is not you

SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON OUR 2001 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX GT TWICE IT WAS JUST FIXED TODAY AND IT CAME BACK ON AGAIN. HOW SHOULD THIS BE FIXED, THEY SAID IT WAS A HEAD GASKET, IT'S A USED CAR WE JUST BOUGHT...


Hello! The SERVICE LIGHT which is also called the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT is the Pontiac's computer telling you there is a problem.

A testing device called a SCAN TOOL is needed to read from a list of trouble codes that are stored in the computer.

If you drive to an auto parts store, such as AUTO ZONE, they will scan your vehicle. This is done for free. The CODE that defines what the trouble is will be given to you.

Without that code I can not fix your vehicle. When you acquire the CODE, send a comment and I'll get to work on your car's problem...


I am here!............SAAILER

How to reset the "service engine soon" light on a 2001 pontiac grand prix gt


you can go to advance auto and use there scanner for free to clear the code its called an obd2 connection or when you disconnect your battery you can touch your black negative cable to your red positive cable that connects to the battery and it will completley drain everything and reset but warning you if your trying to get the car through emissions your gonna have to drive the car 50 or 100 miles after you disconnect the battery each time..
