To get the remote start going again, I remembered a time when my Explorer phob would not open the doors automatically, I was told to insert the key and toggle it from off to "run" (not starting it, but having the radio and lights come on) position about 4 - 5 times to reset it. I tried that with the car, and it worked!!

Thanks,
Jane

How do I relearn the theft system on a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix?


Reset is . Turn the key on for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. Start the car. Relearn is three times this. Start the car after the third time. Have a battery charger on it. The battery gets to low, you have to start over.

2006 jeep liberty wrong key was inserted now won't start but turns over any ideas on how to reprogram key for my car?


NOOOOOO! Very easy to solve!!!!!
1.) Lock the car with the original key + remote control.
2.) open the car with the original remote control.
3.) Sit into the car, close ALL doors and windows.
4. Put in the ORIGINAL keys into the ignition and turn it right, until the dasboard lights go on.
5. Wait 10-15 seconds.
6. Take out the keys.
7. Leave the car and lock it with the original remote control.
8. Wait a minute or so.
9. open the car w. the original remote control.
10. Start your car and viola! Will start like a charm.
At least it happened to me with my 2006 cherokee.

IF NOT there is another method, one of these 2 will work!

Try Inserting the correct key in the ignition at least 3 times. Don't turn the key, just insert it-let it sit for 5 seconds and then remove-do this 3-5 times, then insert the key and attempt to start again

Hope it helps, BTW, the anti-theft immobilizer was working.

Below a schematic drawing how the anti-theft immobilizer works, just to give more insight.

2005 grand prix wont start,saying service theft system.


The problem is either gonna be in the key itself or the theft deterent module which is what the key cylinder is in thats what reads the key. Yes you can do all of that reset if you want but eventually it not gonna work and who wants to do that all the time. Remember its either the key or the theft deterent module J byrd Automotive

My car was running fine. I turned it off and now it won't start and my keyless remote or trunk opener or nothing works. The horn won't even honk. Is this something to do with the anti theft...


Might possibly be. Pontiacs were really tied into that anti theft security system. They were notorious for breaking. Here is a link to a site about these SECURITY systems. And possible DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
