    this is a dealer repair, if u do it u will be unable to start the car and will end up taking it to the dealer for re-programing of the module to accept the new key.

You need to get rid of passlock or spend a lot of money in the new cylinder and key that only a dealer would make. There is a detailed write-up for bypassing passlock here: http://newrockies.ca . The guy is great, and this was the only way I was able to save my Park Avenue.

I installed a new steering column in my 2004 Pontiac sunfire and now it will not start. It tries then I beta back fire.


Anti-theft system isn't allowing it too .
The Passlock™ System is provided in order to prevent vehicle theft if the ignition lock cylinder is forced to rotate or the ignition switch is operated while separated from the ignition lock cylinder case. If starting is attempted without authorization from the Passlock™ System, the powertrain control module (PCM) will disable engine starting. Start disable may be in the form of fuel disable or starter disable, depending on engine application.
The components of the Passlock™ System are as follows:
• The ignition lock cylinder and key
• The ignition lock cylinder case, including the Passlock™ sensor
• The ignition switch
• The body control module (BCM)
• The security indicator on the instrument cluster
• The powertrain control module (PCM)

Is the ignition out of a 1998 Pontiac sunfire compatible with a 2000 Pontiac sunfire


No, the 98 is a VATS system. The 2000 is a passlock system. If the ignition still physically works, you CAN bypass the security feature.
