There are several configurations of the same security system. But one sure fire way to correct this issue is to get a bypass kit. Any shop that installs remote startups has the ability to bypass this system. Since the sytem measures the resitance of the key/lock and asociated wiring any shorting of those wires will make it very difficult to defaet without some expertise.

Sometimes the remote atart kit also includes the bypass, so you can get two for one here.

Good luck

Why does my 2000 pontiac grand prix cranks but wont start?

Check if you got fuel coming in. If so, check and make sure you got a spark. More than likely it WILL be your fuel pump,spark plug wires, spark plugs, modules or your ignition control module. Test the fuel railings first. Next check your spark, 99% shure it's one or the other. Trust me!

How to start

the short answer is no. with a wiring diagram and the right tools you may be able to bypass the PATS system but it involves the engine computer. there are aftermarket devices that are supposed to bypass the system for remote start, but you still need a key with the right chip.

1993 pontiac grand prix wont start has battery but starter wont turn

First thing i would check is the security system. If the battery is good, and it feels like everything is normall except it just wont crank. It could be the security or the starter. Put your key in and try to start it, when it doesnt start, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY this is a dead give away and you could find all the answers you may need on this link

Hi guys. my problem is electrical. when i open the car door, there is a constant clicking coming from the steering wheel area. is draining my batterie and not allowing it to start. i have a Triad...

Yes this is your problem, the clicking you hear is a relay that makes the park lights flash, you will need to unhook this system, the starter wires must be reconnected and the rest you can leave but the power needs to be removed from the unit, there are fuses under the dash on the alarm wires remove them. hope this helps.

Grand prix no start

Try locating and reading the fuse box to discover which fuse is for the security system. Pull the fuse for the security system. Good luck.

Grand prix wont idle

There are 3 things that should be checked.
The idle air control valve (some call it a fuel bypass valve)
Throttle position sensor
and a fuel pressure test done. The idle air control is usually mounted on the throttle body, so is the tps which has a black plastic casing. good luck.
