SOURCE: car starts run's 3 seconds shuts down

Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.

PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

SOURCE: i have a 2000 grand am and right now it wont

well it has passlock two and this is common with these cars. never seen the other issue to accompany it but if you do a relearn of the key and it starts then it could be two different issue's but if it don't work then they are related.

a relearn of the key is done with the ebrake up to keep the day time running lights off ( not an issue for you) but do it anyway. put key in the ignition and turn it to the on postion right before crank for 10 sec. turn it off for 10 sec. then turn it back on for 10 mins. repeat two more times back off for 10 sec. and then back on for 10 mins. it is cruishle you try to keep with in the times or very close. 10 seconds and 10 minuites three times and that will relearn the key and if it starts then you may have two issue's but hard to tell with out testing. but i think this is the best thing you can do for now.

i have a customer that can't afford the passlock module and labor so i taught her this and she is better then me now at it. lol... but like i said very common issue. let me know if you have any more question. good luck

SOURCE: 2002 grand prix: when starting car, it wil catch and run for 1-2

simplest solution is to clean the throttle body intake with intake cleaneer. they are noted for this issue.
this is especially annoing when it sits for a few minutes when warm.

if it does this when cold you have a fuel pressure issue. try changing the gas filter first. if this doesn't cure it you may have a fuel pump issue. your mechanic can determine this for about 100 bucks by doing a "fuel pressure" test.

failing this the next step would be electrical and even though there may not be warning lights therre should be a stored code to identify the issue.

Try starting it with the shifter in neutral. You might have a bad

SOURCE: my car motor was seized

Feel free to ask more questions on this thread, so next time you will not have to pay again. I will assist you until you are happy with your final answer. This problem may also be a crank sensor, the crank sensor will not allow the car to start if it is bad, and these are known to go out in these motors. When this sensor is bad it will cause a misfire, it will also cause the car to run and die suddenly. I'm pretty sure by the way you are explaining things that your security system has a major role in this. In GM cars the security system will not let the fuel pump prime if the security module is activated. I would take the negative battery cable off the battery over night and charge the battery. This will also reset your ECM. Does your key have a little "pill" on the thicker end of the key that goes into the ignition. If this is gone/broken/not working this will also cause the car to not start. Feel free to ask more questions and we will all try to assist you until you are satisfied.

I dont remember if that year had a theft lock system or not, but I am looking into it. disconnect the negative battery cable for ten minutes and that should get you back to where you can enter the unlock code again and use the radio.

My 02 eclipse shut off while driving and wont start now. I turn the key and it tries to start but wont. My friend said it might be the fuel pump or the relay but we couldnt find the fuel pump relay.


- to check fuel pump/relay- with drivers door open - radio off - insert key and turn from OFF to RUN-not start- should hear a hum from under car back towards tank- relay is under hood in second fuse/relay panel
? did you hit a bump just before car shut off? - if so look in manual for location of EMERGENY FUEL CUTOFF- usually in trunk area- large red push button- can trip sometimes with a hard enough jolt

Replaced starter and wont start. Im wondering if it is the shut off switch in the trunk? does the switch have to be up or down?


the starter cranks the engine, the switch in the trunk has a button that you depress to reset the fuel pump. if the fuel pump doesnt operate then the switch may tripped, the button is DOWN. So does the engine crank? does it not crank? cranks but wont run? if it cranks but wont run, then check the switch in the trunk. Power goes to that switch and then to the pump, so if that switch has power going through it, and the pump doesnt work, the pump is bad. when turning the key on you should hear the pump go on for 2 seconds.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.

1998 cad alarm no start


Your GM product has a safety alarm, it shuts down the radio , or locks it.
I send ours to a GM dealer to get it unlocked. They don't give those codes out.
