Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
Unfortunately, you cannot bypass or disable this system. It runs through the computer system or BCM and is controlled by that computer. You can check connections on the back of the ignition switch which I believe in this car is located in the steering column. This problem usually ends up being solved by replacing the ignition passkey sensor. This can be quite costly to take to the dealer. If you will not be doing the work yourself, then be sure you trust the shop or mechanic/technician that does this procedure because it can be quite costly without someone trying to squeeze every dollar out of it. Some shops do not have the technology to diagnose this problem. The equipment utilized for that procedure is quite expensive, so your basic run of the mill shop will not be able to diagnose this without replacing several expensive parts. This way they can diagnose the problem through process of elimination at your expense. These steps are not necessary. Hope this helps, good luck!
