    try turning the key on and leaving it that way for fifteen/twenty minutes. that should re-set security system. otherwise there's a "glitch" in there somewhere that needs further diagnosis.

These cars had a tendency to "lose" the password for the theft deterrent system. Your body control module doesnt understand your key, therefore tells your pcm to discountinue fuel supply. To reprogram the system, start the engine and let it stall. Leave the key in the run position. The theft light should flash for 10 minutes. When the light stops flashing, Turn the ignition off for 10 seconds. Turn the ignition back to the run position. This procedure tells the BCM that on the next ignition cycle, to accept the new password. Now, it should start. If not, it may require the clearing of the code, and possibly the reprogramming of the PCM, which needs to be done with a dealer scan tool or equivilant.

2000 gmc classic sierra 2500 starts then dies had code read has a u1626 code security fuel code


That sounds to me very much like your theft deterrant system has disabled your fuel pump.
On a GM vehicle that is usually brought on by putting anything into the ignition switch other than the correct key. If you are actually using the correct key, then it means that at some other time then something else other than your key was inserted into the switch.

Try disconnecting the battery for a minimum of 30 minutes.

2004 pontiac grand am car will not start


the security light will flash and disable the fuel injectors preventing the car from starting, if it thinks that it is being stolen. its easy to fix. set the parking brake to turn off the automatic headlights. next turn the key to the on position and wait ten minutes. the security light should stop flashing. then turn the key off and this will reset the security system. it should start immediatly afterwards.

I have a 97 pontiac grand prix with a 3800 v6 non cupercharged engine. Service engine light came on so i changed spark plugs and wires with oem parts. Now it is hesitating and running rough with service...


You need to read the codes. Get an OBD2 code scanner from your local auto parts store,, then read the code stored. Then you will have a better idea what is going on.

Need help with a Grand Prix


The new key must be programmed, did the key you have made have a little silver wire embedded in it? if not it will not work, you are right about the fuel pump, the anti-theft is being triggered by the new key. As far as the coolant light goes I would change the sensor, they are prone to failure and then the light stays on, the level sensor is in the coolant tank or at the top of the radiator tank, small and round with wire going to it.
