How do I reset the security system on my 2002 grand am gt. I tried changing the factory radio and now my security system doesn't work

You can try this re-learn procedure, if that doesn't work you will need to bypass the security system. I hope you bought the wire harness adapter for that vehicle. They need it.

Perform the re-learning procedure

  1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not start).
  3. Observe the SECURITY light, after approximately 10 minutes the light will turn OFF.
  4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 10 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes
  6. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
  7. Start the engine (the vehicle has now learned the Sensor Data Code and/or password).
Here is a link you can follow to learn more on the security system Do It Yourself GM Security bypass

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT. Security light stays on. Hve to turn ut to ACC, wait 10 min and hope and pray it will turn over and start. This is becoming a nuisance! Is there any way possible to...

I found this web site and it works great to disarm the securuty system and only cost you about .75 cents and some time and paitients. The dealership will charge you hundreds of doliars and the problem will come back. We did this to our daughters car and she hasn't had any futher problems with the car not starting because to the security system. Hope this helps !

Security light contionously comes on and will not let car start any way to bypass?

Try turning the ignition to on and leave for about 10 minutes. This works in a lot of cars. When the security light goes off the car will start. Unfortunately this will happen again.

What's the deal with security light with the 2000 Pont Grand AM? What is it for and how can Im get RID of it?

Hello.... The Security Light is there because the vehicle has a manufactured built-in security system that is part of the ignition system. The sad part is that it cannot be removed. If you did remove the components that make up the system the vehicle would not start and if it did start it would stop running after about 10 mins.

Hope this helps...

2000 Pontiac Grand Am -- Security light/Passlock -- Engine turns over but won't start & the security light flashes. This has happened twice in the last 3 months. Do anyone know if this type of problem...

there is a way to bypass the system we do it often but you will need to buy a data bypass unit to install in order to bypass the passlock sensor in the dash. Once the unit is installed, it is turned on by inserting the key into ignition, then the unit will send the proper code to the BCM allowing it to unlock the ECM and then car will start.

Need to bypass triad security system - car wont start

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
