go on the internet search for remote start companies you will find one with a wiring diagram, it does not have to be a diagram for a grand am, you just want to know which wire to cut, the use an ohm meter (cost $8) to find the resistance value. go to radio shack get a resistor of that value (or a group of resistors of that value) connect the cut wires with the resistor inbetween and the car should start.you will have to remove the instrument cluster and starter switch to get at the wires, it really isnt that bad.
I WOULD SAY GET A REPAIR MANUAL TO LOOK AT THE STARTER WIRING DIAGRAM TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE TWO RED WIRES BATTERY POSITIVE CABLE + FUSE LINK WIRE GOES TO SOLENOID POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL POST .THAT THE LARGE STUD WITH A BOLT.THE SMALL PURPLE WIRE GOES TO S OR SWITCH TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID.
you can call technical support for Pontiac and they can mail or email you the wiring diagram.. if not then you can get it from PepBoys the Repair Book which shows all diagrams for this particular vehicle
1. The wire you need are not going to be in the columm. They are going to be under the collumm, under the dashboard.
2. Also if you have a microchip in your key, the remote start will not work. Unless you take a spare key with a microchip in it, and tie it with a paperclip to amplify the chip, inside the steering columm or close to it. (because the microchip key doesn't necessarily need to be inside the ignition) so when you use the wireless starter, the computer will think the microchip key is being used.
