No, your system is PASSLOCK which doesn't use the chip key like VATS did. If you are having issues, check out this link,

Switched ignition switches out of 1998 Sunfire into my 2000 Sunfire... How long does it take to do the Theft System reset?

You can only reset two ways

Take the car to a dealership to pair the chip in the key, to the chip in the ignition lock.


Disconnect the battery for an hour. When you reconnect, the ECM will pair and recognise the two chips.

Starter wires on a 1997 sunfire

Sunfire keys are not chipped therefore there is no learning process that needs to be done. The 3 10 thing is a waste of time. The ONLY theft deterrent in this car is the starter cutout through the passlock sensor circuit. It may also cut out the fuel pump, I can't remember. Also you were probably damaging your starter by holding the ignition to start giving it power too long and overheating and damaging the starter internally. To learn a new key to a cars computer with a "chipped" key (not the Sunfire) you just turn the ignition to "on" then "off" not hold it in start for the recommend amount of time.

Theft system light on in a 2004 pontiac sunfire car wont turn on

did you use a key without a chip in it as this will set the theft system,if so use a key that has the chip in it.if you used the right key then you can try turning the key to the on position and leave it for i think 3 minutes then turn it off for 5 seconds then on for 3 minutes again then off then back on for 3 minutes then off then the next time when you turn it on try to start it.

Hi there i went to start the car i have a 1998 sunfire and i turned the key the car wond over but didnt start ,then itried the car again but didnt start. i have anti thetf so my question is , is there...

First check with locale Pontiac dealer giving your full vin number of car to determine if it has anti-theit. feature. If so, there is a chip in key to allow it to start. May require a new chip key cut from vin if chip went bad if that is at all possible. Never heard of a chip going bad but anything is possible.

2004 Pontiac Sunfire Does crank position sensor control fuel pump?

no, when you turn key on you should hear pump run for 2-3 seconds, if not check fuses, then if fuses are good have someone tapped fuel tank with rubber hammer as key is turned on, if fuel pump runs after tapping tank, replace fuel pump
