2006 gxp wont start due to anti theft system what to do?


You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery or dead battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzz kill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio, which will also bring your whole car back to life.

I have a 2004 Grand Prix. My daughter has it at school 60 miles away from me. She said that the service theft system light has come on and she would like to know what she can do to clear problem. Is it...


You can disconnect either battery terminal for 15 minutes...then reconnect...this will reset all of the systems...Also, is the Grand Prix in an extremely cold climate? If so, the door jams could have some ice or dirt causing them to send a wrong signal...did the G/P go through a car wash recently? This wash could have supplied the extra ice or debris causing the theft security systems warning light...Great Cars...you should be able to fix this...:)

I want to extract my radio code before i remove the old battery and replace it on my 2004 Grand Prix.


The "Theftlock" theft deterrent system is a feature on all base and uplevel radios. There is no need to
program a security code into the radio as in past model years. The theft deterrent system now utilizes
class 2 serial data to determine if the radio is in the appropriate vehicle. Each time the radio receives
the "run" power mode message, it compares the VIN information it has stored to the VIN information
received from a module on the class 2 serial data circuit responsible for transmitting that information.
If a mis-match occurs, the radio display will indicate to the user the radio is locked. Once this takes
place, a DTC will set, the radio will not respond to any button presses and become inoperative. The
two scenarios able to cause this condition are:

  • A radio is installed from another vehicle.
  • A module which communicates on the class 2 serial data circuit which supplies VIN information to the radio is replaced and not properly setup with the correct VIN information for that vehicle.

Security light comes on intermintently then car will not start for ten minutes it will do this quite often for awhile then will quit for a long time any ideas that don't cost more than the car is worth?


I have a Technical Service Bulletin. I'll even hand copy it from my program.

TECHNICAL

Engine stalls, Security Lamp illuminated, DTCs (Replace Theft Deterrent Control Module)

Models:
2000-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix built prior to Vin Breakpoint 3F115058

Condition

Some customers may comment that the vehicle starts then stalls and the security lamp is illuminated. These symptoms may be intermittent and after several attempts, the vehicle may stay running.

Cause

The condition may be caused by either a chafed wire in the theft deterrent module wiring harness or an electrical interference within the theft deterrent module not allowing the fuel enable signal to be detected.

Correction

Replace the theft deterrent module with Part No. 10335045 and reroute the module wiring harness to a new location using the procedure listed below.

1 Reroute the module harness on the outside of the steering column channel and tie strap the lower portion to the larger ignition bundle.

2. Replace the tie strap removed from the tilt head during disassembly. Secure the new strap in the hole in the tilt mechanism and around the module wire and ignition SIR wires, but below the tie strap located on the sir wires.
