Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Security light flashing, does not turn over, do i replace ignition or ecm or both? Do i need new key if i replace ignition? I went to work car started fine. Then went to start the car and go homeand the car would not crank over and the security light comes on, the radio starts but the engine does not start. A friend said it is the transponder in the key and to get the dealer to check the code and cut a new one. Should that not work is there another logical explanation? Thank you

Your key has been deactivated, try placing the key in the ignition turn the key to on and leave it there for a minimum of ten minutes. then turn the key off and try restarting the car. this should recode the key to the car and it should start. If this dont work you will have to get the key recoded for your car.

Changed ignition switch now security light stays on and truck starts and kills


You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.

Key Does Not Work


It could be that chip inside key just went bad. Do u have a 3rd key? That works? If so take the 2 good keys and turn the igntion to run postion for 3 secs each then do the same for the 3rd key and this will reprogram it if the chip is ok. If you do not have 2 good keys then u will have to have a scan tool that will link up with PATS system and perform security access to reprogram it.

Security light flashing, does not turn over, do i replace ignition or ecm or both? Do i need new key if i replace ignition?


Chances are the wire going to ignition broke allowing the security to start flashing.this will keep the
car from cranking.On my 93 bonneville I went to Radioshack and got a 680 ohm resister,cut the 2 small
yellow wires on lower steering column under dash,soldered resister to the 2 yellow wires coming from harness.Cost of repair..$1. you can read the resistance on the key by using ohm meter on each
side of chip in key
