Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 1996 Pontiac Grand AM V6 and the Anti-Theft turned on when i switched out my IPC because the original one was broken (not useable). Now my car will start and run for 5 seconds then shut off and the Anti-Theft Telltale blinks. I do not have the Transponder Key for the car either. Is there a Module or another way to bypass this completely? Can I switch out the IPC, Lock Cylinder, Ignition Switch & Computer from another 96 Grand AM?
This is easy fix i had same thing happen when you start your car and it dies don't touch your key for no less than 11 min then turn it to off for no less than 30 sec the book says you might have to repeat this 4 times it worked the first time for me

Had similar problem that is a seemingly impossible to bypass (tried 1500 ohm resistor and still could not match the electrical current in the anti-thefy system) so standard pice wont work. But if u swich the whole lock cylinder from another grand am it should work becuase it has the same electrical current is flowing wich needs to be active at all times for the car not to shut off right away (there is no chip in the key at all)

Try this first, it takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to help
