Car will not start


You probably can't.
If the anti-theft module is in the cluster, you would need the correct key chip for the car the cluster came out of.
You might be able to bypass the passkey system by running a wire to the fuel pump relay and other components.
You may need a shop manual to find the circuits.

I suggtes check the THEFT SYSTEM disarm procedure section in your Owners Manual; if you dont have this document, could download from this link: Pontiac/Grand-Am/1997/a/Owners-Manual

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this free answer).

I HAVE A 97 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX AND EVERYTHING IS LOCKED ON THE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM HOW DO I RESET


go on the internet search for remote start companies you will find one with a wiring diagram, it does not have to be a diagram for a grand am, you just want to know which wire to cut, the use an ohm meter (cost $8) to find the resistance value. go to radio shack get a resistor of that value (or a group of resistors of that value) connect the cut wires with the resistor inbetween and the car should start.you will have to remove the instrument cluster and starter switch to get at the wires, it really isnt that bad.

The anti-theft system, cutting off the fuel system cause it did not recognize my key, started coming on more commonly. Now it just does not turn the engine over. It just makes a click sound when it goes...


Good Evening, your anti-theft is in the ignition. If you go to start the car, then leave the key in the run position when it does not start for about 11- 15mins. Once the security light goes off then turn it off and try starting it. If it does not work you might have to do it a couple more times. What happens is the system relearns your key. Hope that helps,
Thanks,
Joey

1997 Chevy Cavalier Starts and then dies after a few seconds.


Find a good auto wrecker, and try replacing the mass air flow sensor.

Trouble starting once in awhile


it does sound like the anti-theft system. There are only 2 ways to bypass your problem. 1) disconnect the anti-theft system which runs into your ignition, cut the wires to the system and join them back together without hooking it back up to the anti-theft. 2) Bring it back to the dealer so that they can replace your anti-theft sensor. The part is rather cheap but the labor is the killer.

1997 pontiac won't stay on


i had the same prob. w my 97 grand am. i bought a new ignition switch and installed it...after installing you have to reset the theft system. all you have to do to reset is turn the key far enough for it to bump the motor over then leave the key in the run position for about ten to twenty minutes...might hook bat. to charger cause if it dies in process you have to start all over...the theft light will either blink then stay on or go out completly....

Hey mine did the same let it sit with the doors closed and key out for 15 minutes or so and the light of anti-theft should turn off on its own or if that dont work try unhooking your battery no problem
