You can purchase new Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitters from the dealer or you can order them online at the web sites listed below or several others. Your vehicle provides for programming the RKE transmitters without the use of a scan tool. Follow the instructions below.

2000 PONTIAC GRAND AM RKE TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

WITHOUT A SCAN TOOL

1. Close all vehicle doors. Remove key from ignition lock cylinder

NOTE: STEPS 2 AND 3 MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN 25 SECONDS OF PRESSING THE DOOR UNLOCK SWITCH
2. Press and hold door UNLOCK switch. While holding UNLOCK switch, insert and remove the key in the ignition lock cylinder twice. Do not rotate the lock cylinder.
3. Insert the key a third time, leaving the key in the lock cylinder. Keep the lock cylinder in the LOCK position for the remainder of the procedure. Release the door UNLOCK switch. The chime will sound 3 times to signal that the programming/diagnostic mode is active.
4. Press and hold LOCK and UNLOCK at the same time on the RKE transmitter for approximately 4 seconds. The chime will sound 2 times signaling that the transmitter has been programmed.
5. Repeat step 4 for each transmitter being programmed. (You can program up to 4 transmitters.)

6. To exit program mode, turn the key to the RUN position then back to the LOCK position and remove the key. Your transmitters should now work to lock and unlock your doors.

Where is the ignition switch located on a 2000 pontiac grand am gt.


you put your ignition key into the lock cylinder. if you put the right key in, it fits and turns the ignition switch. so your ignition switch is more or less directly behind and in line with your key when it is in the lock cylinder. inside the steering column. it is not easy to get at, and you will find that special anti-theft tools are needed to replace it.

Key ignition switch needs replaced lock cylinder how do i change key broke off inside damaged needs replaced wires broke off behind key switch


disconnect the battery and pull the air bag fuse out to diable the air bag. Remove the steering coulmb trim covers and expose the lock cylinder. If the lock cylinder can be turned and is functional then push in the bottom tab and turn the lock cylinder then pull the whole cylinder out. If the keys broke inside and the lock cylinder is not functional the bottom tab will need to be drilled out.

I have 1999 lexus ls470 -- same problem -- ignition switch


Its usually NOT the lock cylinder on the 470s, its usually the housing. The cylinder is on the dash and points towards the engine. Behind the plastic dash panel (once removed) you will see it in fact sticks in an aluminum tube that goes down 2 or 3 inches, then makes 2 turns, left to attatch to the steering column, and right to attatch to the actual ignition switch. The gear and rod assembly that the cylinder attatches to that allows it to rotate the switch usually shatters in the middle and the key starts freewheeling because there is no longer any attatchment to any of the gears or springs or click points that youd usually feel as the rotational resistance. UNFORTUNATELY this is not a 5 minute job (If it was, cars would be a breeze to steal!). Youll need at least a lock cylinder housing (dealer stock em, they break all the tyme), and IF your cylinder is undamaged, change the housing (it bolts to the steering column and extends from column towards center console area where the ignition SWITCH is actually located). If your cylinder is damaged or the housing is so shredded you cant remove the lock cylinder by normal means...then youll also need the cylinder...and it will have to be recoded to the vehicle so the anti theft will allow the new keys/cylinder to start the car. If your old cylinder and keys are intact, then transfer them to the new housing and car wont even know it happened and should start up and work as normal. Some can be removed intact, some cant...depends on how yours broke.

Ignition Switch GM Century/Lumina/Grand Prix/Intrigue 1997-2000 The vehicles covered by this guide use one of two types of ignition switches:
  • A mechanical key and lock cylinder built into the steering column, that works a pull rod to actuate the separate electrical portion of the ignition switch mounted further down the steering column. For more information and replacement procedures on this type of switch, please see .
  • An instrument panel-mounted ignition switch is also used on some W-Body vehicles. To service this switch, the radio, heater & A/C control panel and the instrument cluster must be removed. All of these procedures are found elsewhere in this section.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Instrument Panel-Mounted Ignition Switch
WARNING You must perform the Body Control Module (BCM) theft deterrent relearn procedure after replacement of the ignition lock cylinder. Failure to perform this relearn procedure means the BCM will not function properly. This means the vehicle will not be theft protected by the Passlock system and the engine may not crank or start. GM recommends that this procedure be performed with their Tech 2® or equivalent scan tool. An alternate relearn procedure is given at the end of this procedure.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the radio assembly following the procedures found in this section.
  3. Remove the heater & A/C control head assembly following the procedures found in this section.
  4. Remove the instrument cluster assembly following the procedures found in this section.
  5. Detach the electrical connectors from the ignition switch.
  6. Insert the key and turn the ignition switch lock cylinder to the ACC position.
  7. Depress the transaxle park/lock cable retainer to release, then pull to remove the cable from the ignition switch.
NOTE You must perform the Body Control Module theft deterrent relearn procedure after replacement of the ignition lock cylinder.
  1. If it is necessary to remove the ignition lock cylinder from the ignition switch (theft damage, etc.), use the following procedure:
    1. Insert the key and turn the ignition switch lock cylinder to the ON position.
    2. Using a small flat-bladed tool, depress and hold the lock cylinder retaining tab.
    3. Using the key as an aid, pull to remove the ignition switch lock cylinder from the switch.
    4. Remove the key from the lock cylinder.
    5. Carefully pull to release the ignition switch bezel from the ignition switch lock cylinder.
  2. Remove the ignition switch bracket bolts and remove the ignition switch through the instrument panel cluster opening.
  3. Remove the bolts retaining the ignition switch to the bracket and remove the bracket.

    2. Align the ignition switch bezel to the tabs on the ignition switch lock cylinder and carefully press to secure in place.
    3. Insert the key and turn the ignition switch lock cylinder to the ON position.

This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. Make sure the battery is fully charged before proceeding.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. Turn the ignition switch all the way from the OFF to the START position, then leave it in the ON position. The engine will not crank.
  3. The SECURITY light should come on and stay on for at lease ten minutes.
  4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position for five seconds.
  5. Repeat Steps 2, 3 and 4 again for a second time.
  6. Repeat Steps 2, 3 and 4 again for a third time.
  7. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  8. Turn the ignition switch all the way to the START position. The engine should now start.

Change ignition cylinder? (lock?)


Grandammit...Hey...replacing a lock cylinger requires recoded ignition keys, and a new lock cylinder requires dissassembly of the steering column. Not an easy fix, and I wonder if you are really the thief..you don't sound like a 9 month pregnant girl. Sorry......if I am wrong I am wrong. Drive it with a scredriver until you give birth then fix it.
