Question about 1997 Saturn SC

Open Question

I need to locate the theft deterrent relay on my 1997 Saturn SC.

As per technical bulletin corp.# 688105. Intermittent no crank during cold ambient temperatures. ( Replace theft deterrent relay) I have looked in all the usual places under hood relay box and fuse box and have not located it so far.Any ideas as to where it may be located. Saturn may call this relay a starter relay. Also I would like to locate the remote keyless entry relay.
Thanks,

SOURCE: cant program key fob and theft deterrent not working

I have not fixed the problem, I did however find the module and it was disconnected. I connected it and the darn thing would not stop honking so I had to disconnect again. Car wouldnt start either so I guess it's in valet mode and I can't do anything without the key fob. The valet switch was not connected to anything looks like it has been cut. Thanks for the non-responses..and the offer that was givin to me to pay to get help. What a rip off ! !

How to reset Theft Deterrent fuel enable signal


have you put obd11 scanner on it to find error code.
DTC P1626 Theft Deterrent Fuel Enable Signal Lost
Circuit Description
The Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) system is incorporated within the body control module (BCM). The powertrain control module(PCM) monitors the state of health serial data message from the Theft Deterrent system to ensure that the PCM to BCM communications is established. If the PCM detects a loss of the state of health message while the engine is running, DTC P1626 will set. DTC P1626 can cause a no-start condition or normal operation depending on when the loss of Theft Deterrent system communication was detected. The engine will continue to start and run if the condition that set DTC P1626 occurred after the PCM received a valid theft deterrent password from the BCM and already allowed fuel during the ignition cycle. The engine will start and immediately stall if the condition that set DTC P1626 occurred before the PCM received a valid theft deterrent password. With this condition present, the PCM will inhibit fuel delivery and disable the starter until a valid theft deterrent password is detected. Refer to Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) Circuit Description .

Conditions for Running the DTC
The Theft Deterrent system has allowed fuel delivery.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
The PCM has detected a loss of the state of health serial data message from the Theft Deterrent system.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets
The PCM stores conditions which were present when the DTC set as Failure Records only. This information will not be stored as Freeze Frame Records.

Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC
The DTC becomes history when the conditions for setting the DTC are no longer present.
The history DTC clears after 40 malfunction free warm-up cycles.
The PCM receives a clear code command from the scan tool.
Diagnostic Aids,
An intermittent may be caused by:

• A poor connection

• Rubbed through wire insulation

• A wire broken inside the insulation

Check for the following conditions:, • Intermittent short circuit on the serial data circuit -- Refer to Data Link Communications Operation in Data Link Communications. Be sure to check all related wiring for an intermittent short to ground or short to voltage.

• Poor connection -- Inspect the wiring harness for damage. Check for an intermittent short or open circuit in the wiring harness related to the BCM, including the ignition, battery feed, ground, and Serial Data circuits.

I have a 94 camero just replaced ignition starter switch but when I turn the key to start position I get nothing no click nothin wat else could it possibly be?


Is that why you changed the ignition switch in the first place ? No crank - no start ? Did you check the park neutral switch ? Is there a theft light lit ? Theft deterrent relay ? You have to know how it works if you want to fix the problem . When you turn the key to start , the B+ power goes through the park neutral switch for automatic transmissions or the clutch start switch for manual transmissions , to the theft deterrent relay , to the theft deterrent module . If there is no anti-theft system problems the theft deterrent module energizes the relay ,closing the contacts inside sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid .

1997 Pontiac Firebird, will not crank. Changed fuel pump and the relay, now the security light is coming on and injectors will not engage...HELP


On my '97 Camaro, the first thing I hear when turning the ignition key is the fuel pump run and the fuel rail pressure up. .
First thought is, manual cars must have clutch depressed and auto cars in Park or Neutral to enable cranking. If these inhibit switches are faulty then that could be your problem. Had an old 5-speed manula Pontiac Fiero with a faulty inhibit switch. I just bypassed the switch with a piece of jumper wire. Just had to remember to ensure car was in neutral when starting!!
Do you have a shop manual with wiring diagrams? The Haynes manual schematic covering both Camaro and Firebird diagram shows a theft deterrent relay between the starter key switch and the main starter solenoid mounted on the starter motor. This relay actuating coil has a volts feed on one side of the coil from the inhibit switches fitted to ensure the car is in Park or Neutral for Automatics or the clutch must be depressed for manual cars. The other side ot this relay coil is grounded via the Theft Deterrent Module.
There is also a further fuse. Number 16, a 3 amp fuse labelled "Crank fuse" that is labelled as going to the Diagnostic Energy Reserve Module. Not sure what that is but with the fuse labelled "crank fuse" it sounds important!! it may be linked to the theft deterrent module but my manual is not clear on that.
If all the fuses are OK then I think the problem lies in the anti theft system.
To bypass the anti-theft and enable cranking you could simply break the yellow/black wire from the theft deterrent relay and ground the relay coil. (cut the wire and connect to ground / chassis, the bit going to the relay not going toward the anti-theft module) Turning the starter key should then apply volts that are coming from the transmission inhibit or clutch inhibt switches to the coil of the theft inhibit relay. This relay then pulls in and applies vots to the main starter solenoid and so enable cranking. The starter solenoid should be heard as a solid thunk as it pulls in. Small relays as a tick.
If this works then wire in a hidden switch in this ground wire to act as a unique anti theft device.
However if the vehicle control electronics are also fried then you will still have problems.
Hope all this is of some help and best of luck.

When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire, or it just won't crank? If it just won't crank, you could be having an issue with the starter relay. The often become intermittent before failure. Many owners do not know there is a starter relay because it was added as a recall item i order to protect the iginition switch from burnout. The starter relay is located in the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

Security light comes on intermintently then car will not start for ten minutes it will do this quite often for awhile then will quit for a long time any ideas that don't cost more than the car is worth?


I have a Technical Service Bulletin. I'll even hand copy it from my program.

TECHNICAL

Engine stalls, Security Lamp illuminated, DTCs (Replace Theft Deterrent Control Module)

Models:
2000-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix built prior to Vin Breakpoint 3F115058

Condition

Some customers may comment that the vehicle starts then stalls and the security lamp is illuminated. These symptoms may be intermittent and after several attempts, the vehicle may stay running.

Cause

The condition may be caused by either a chafed wire in the theft deterrent module wiring harness or an electrical interference within the theft deterrent module not allowing the fuel enable signal to be detected.

Correction

Replace the theft deterrent module with Part No. 10335045 and reroute the module wiring harness to a new location using the procedure listed below.

1 Reroute the module harness on the outside of the steering column channel and tie strap the lower portion to the larger ignition bundle.

2. Replace the tie strap removed from the tilt head during disassembly. Secure the new strap in the hole in the tilt mechanism and around the module wire and ignition SIR wires, but below the tie strap located on the sir wires.
