Security light on car wont start on 1999 pontiac grand am


it will require the computer to be flashed by the dealer.. have car towed to chevy or gmc dealer and they can have it running right away...the key sends a signal to a security computer to allow the car to start. the two are not communicating to each other...

Security light blinks car won't start disconnected the battery used a different key still won't start


need to reprogram the security system. turn the key to start position then to run . let the key stay on until the light stops flashing. repeat these steps 3 times then the car should start if there is not a problem with the pass-lock sensor in the ignition switch or the BCM( body control module).

COULD BE A NUMBERS OF THINGS BUT HAVE IT SCAN BY DEALER FOR CODES FIRST
COULD BE A TIME SAVER AND CHEPER IN THE LONG RUN
COULD JUST NEED REPROGRAM OR NEW KEY

My pontiac grand am won't start and the starter goes like its gunna start but it won't turn over also the secerity lite is flashing, i need help it is the only car i have and i can't afford to buy a new...


Hi. I have a 99 Pontiac Grand Am. I've had that problem before. All I did was...whenever the security light would flash...and the car wouldn't start...I would take the key out...and just sit there and wait for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then the red light would stop flashing....and the car would start. That would happen about 2 times a year. Now I'm having trouble getting it to start. It's trying to...but won't turn over. My mechanic put a new computer....but now he doesn't know what is wrong. Please help. Thanks.

Prblem car won't start


Turn the key to on. The security ight should be flashing at this point. The key should be turned to on for about 10 mins. The security light will be steady now, the turn off then start it. This re-sets.

1994 gp 3100 ,wont start, turn key getting all the dash lites but starter not engaging, security lite is flashing, the car was drove to my hse i know it runs any ideas, battery is new, key is a #7.with key...


You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!

Car wont start


Try this. Roll down the drivers side window. Close the door and turn the key to the On position. Don't try to crank the car right now. Leave the key on for ten minutes. After ten minutes turn the key off then try to start the car. This procedure tells the computer that it is not being stolen and it will reset the security system. This should hopefully let your car start. I hope this is helpful.
