Its possible. But I would suspect that you would see the security light flashing on the dash if that were the case. Is this the GT or GTP?

There is also an online Grand Prix community that you can visit that may have more answers for you. Go to, sign up and post up there what you are having trouble with. Its a nice sized community of people that should be able to help out.

My vehicle security indicator light is on? my car wont turn on but everything works it just wont turn on? what can i do? i have a 2011 dodge caliber

You need the security system scanned for faults that will indicate the reason you are locked out. This means either a well equipped shop that has the right scanner for the computer or the dealer, your choice.

2000 cadillac security issue wont start .how do u bypass security system so it starts or what is the problem causing this problem?

Many reasons why a Cadillac security system activates, and the procedure to reset it can get very complicated. You can try disconnecting the battery (negative cable only) for a couple of minutes and then reconnect to see if the problem goes away. If not, you will need to have a GM dealer reset it.

I have a pontiac sunfire out of the blue my theft system light came on and now it wont start. why would this happen and how do i get it to disarm?

The anti theft system can fail for a number of reasons. Sometimes it can be as simple as the chip on the key starting to get worn out, or as large as the TDM (Theft Deterrent Module) computer failing. This can be as simple as a 100 dollar key or a 700 dollar TDM. Or any part in between. The hard part is diagnosing which part is failing. These early year's security systems dont run on the car's scanner, so getting scanned wont help. I have had great luck with just bypassing the system. This link has 2 ways to bypass this system. Ive used these bypasses DOZENS of times and both ways work depending the vehicle and which part is failing. Comment back if you need any more help. I know these old VATS SECURITY systems very well. You can contact the guy on this link too. He knows his stuff.

The 3.8 series 2 engine doesnt turn over with the

sounds like it needs an ignition switch. the reason it dies after a few seconds after jumping the starter is bc the security system from gm thinks you're stealing the car so it kills the fire. the security system goes thru the key so if the switch is bad, it wont run no matter how you try to crank it

Security light on car wont start

Yea the car is in lock down mode. Something triggered the security system, and as a result, the computer engaged the ignition kill. Disconnecting the battery alone wont solve the problem. What I would suggest is call a local Chevy dealer and ask to talk to a technician, they know the procedure and can walk you throuogh it right over the phone.
