you need to get rid of passlock or spend a lot of money in the new cylinder and key that only a dealer would make. There is a detailed write-up for bypassing passlock here: . The guy is great, and this was the only way I was able to save my Park Avenue.

Is the ignition out of a 1998 Pontiac sunfire compatible with a 2000 Pontiac sunfire

No, the 98 is a VATS system. The 2000 is a passlock system. If the ignition still physically works, you CAN bypass the security feature.

97 sunfire tried turning key on 10 min than so on and ..... etc. this does not reset anti theft light flashes ,we do not have a key with a chip in it so what do you think ?? kelly

This 10 minute re-learn process only works if there is a small Hiccup or Glitch in the system. If that 10 minute trick did not work, it means that some part of that antitheft system is legitimately failing and would need to be fixed or bypassed. This link offers 2 different ways to bypass the system. Ive done both of these bypasses dozens of times, they both work and will not hurt the performance of your vehicle

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.

1997 pontiac sunfire has an engine immoboliser system - the security light is not blinking - the car will not start

If the security light stays on for more than 5 seconds on initial start up. Check out this link. if no security light present, it's probably something else.
