On a similar problem i had occured it is the theft lock that GM uses. You have to put the key in the ignition turn to ACC wait ten minutes and turn it off. You MUST do this three times and then the theft lock will turn off. Once that is out of the way it SHOULD start.

Have you checked the fuses and relays ? Is the check engine light on when you turn the key on ?
Are you getting voltage to the coil ?

My pontiac sunfire wont turn on i alredy change the battery and altarnator what can it be


With out knowing more of your symptoms it is hard to say. Turn on your head lights for a second and make sure they are nice and bright, This tells you two things, you have power in you battery and you have a good connection to the car. Next with the headlights turned on try starting the car,have someone watch the headlights to see if they dim when the car tries to crank. If the headlight intensity does not change and you don't hear an audible clicking sound coming from under the hood check to see that the shifter is in park or clutch is fully depressed. If that is ok you are likely looking at a ignition switch problem or the starter itself is bad. Can you tell me if the dash lights up or if you hear the car go click when you try to start it?

Looking for emergency shut off switch for 02 sunfire


This could very possibly be the antitheft system failing. Gm has had issues with this system since the 80's. When the system fails, the car will crank but not start. Might run for a second or more and then die. If these symptoms sound similar to yours, the antitheft might be the issue. Also look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. This is a telltale sign of an antitheft failure. This link explains the problem and solutions to fix this yourself.

I just put a new fuel pump in my 2001 sunfire. it still wont start what else could be wrong they say it is not the starter thank you


The two most important things are fuel and spark and it could be a number of things within each of those.
You need to find out if you DON'T have one or the other. You replaced the pump so one could assume you have fuel. Now you need to see if you have spark. If you're without one then that helps to narrow things down.

My 2001 pontiac sunfire started going slow in less than a mile it would not go over 7 mph. and now it wont start? What things could it be?


Did it overheat? if not sounds like a fuel pump, need to check fuel pressure and verify that you have ignition(spark)

1997 pontiac sunfire wont start


there should be a fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail. you can push the valve with a small pin while some one turn the key on.
if you don't have fuel come out then the pump may be bad

The car dont want to start


sounds like your security was tripped somehow..

1. turn the key to start the engine then immediatley release it to the on position. Keep it on the on position for 15 min. Watch the security light. The light should go out in 10-15 min. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.

repeat that same process 2 more times. After that your car should start. i had this same problem. Mine is a 03 but im assuming yours has the pass lock security on it also..

Car wont start


if it backfired then there must be spark , (usually) i would suggest checking if there is fuel pressure (listen to hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position) if you dont hear anything then you may have a fuel pump issue..

2001 pontiac sunfire wont start


I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.
