If the alarm is after market, take it off. These after market alarms, and remote starts play havoc with vehicles. Unless it came from the factory, I would not have one installed. No matter who did the work. You will find that most shops will charge extra if they have to work around after market wiring to fix a electrical problem.

    As an after thought. . . do you have the right keys? Maybe your battery is dead. Start with the simple stuff first.

How to reset my security on my 1997 pontiac grand prix

Unfortunately there is no resetting. You need to either replace your ignition lock cylinder and have the new ones tumbler pins changed to your original key. Or have your VATSS system bypassed. A stereo shop that installs remote start systems will be able to help you with the bypass.

Try using the key-less entry to disarm the security. then I think I would get out the test light and look at the A.S.D. (auto shut down) relay in the fuse box under the hood. Verify it is not ignition switch. This relay gives the injectors, coil,and other things power.

2002 chrysler grand voyager i have a normal key not a programed key how do i start the car

The Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) is not going to let you run your engine without the proper key. The best thing to do is to take the entire vehicle (Tow it) to the dealer and have them program a new key for you. With a plain key, the engine will start and run for about 2 seconds then shut down. If this is repeated more than 6 times, the computer will have to be reset before even the correct key can be used. (More money)

If it's the factory security system that honks the horn and flashes the headlights, you can shut it off by turning the key in the door cylinders or in the rear tailgate key cylinder. If it's an aftermarket alarm, look for a small silver switch under the dash and usually turning the ignition on and flipping that switch will permanently put the alarm into valet mode. Good luck.
