Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
You have to take the key out for five -10 seconds after you wait ten mins in the on position. The reset does not take effect until you remove the key.

I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer

i have a 1997 pontiac grand am and it did the same thing when you go to start car and it won't start after 3 trys you have to turn the key to the on postion and let it set for 11 min no more then 11 min then turn it off and count to 30 then it should start. there is no way to go around this wiring .i have asked everybody also if you disconect the battery for a while and hook it back up that might reset the computer and that will work that is what fixed mine for now its been 6 months and hasn't done i sense

My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!
