Best bet would be bad battery/alternator. Start with the battery take a multimeter or preferably a battery tester to it see if your getting proper voltage and amperage.

Starts butwillnotstayruning

If the theft security system is activated because of the stupid cold then you have to turn the key to the "on" position for 11 minutes then shut it off for 3-4 seconds then on for 11 min. then off for 3-4 sec then on one more time for 11 min. then off for 3-4 sec then start it. that's what our son's grand prix or am does. right now it's running in reverse, stuck in the snow and doors locked. husband had to take son 25 miles to new job and come home and try to unlock car before all the gas is used up yipee hope prior advice helps

1998 cutlass....... Theft System light blinking and car suddenly wont start

I have this same problem. It has been happening for about 3 years now. More so when it is cold but it really doesn't matter. The theft system light flashes and you have to wait 10 mins for it to reset and hope that it starts that time. I have sat for 3 1/2 hours before waiting every 10 mins to try again. I have no idea what is wrong with the stupid thing =(

Its starts fine when cold but when it is warm after 10 min or so the car would then start acting up, and will not start but somtimes when cold engine rums rough and dies and wont start

The first thing is to replace the coolant temp sensor. This one provide the feedback signal to the ECM to turn on when to turn on the cold start valve or not. This sensor changes its own resistance depending on surrounding temperature. When it is bad it is giving a reading out of the look up table so ECM doesn't know what to do, hence your engine experienced this symptom.

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!

have local auto parts store check the battery, it may have a couple bad cells, which would reduce cranking amps... would still have enough to run lights etc., but just not enough juice to start the car...
