Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

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?

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

My imoboliser is broken. so how do i start car if imoboliser is broken


General anti-theft devices are connected with the original car ignition switch wiring harness on the firing line first connected to the anti-theft device, drawing a line of fire from the anti-theft device into the ignition switch. You can the combination switch the first guard removed, and then find the ignition switch, disconnect the two lines you will be connected with the anti-theft device, FireWire directly to the original vehicle wiring harness plug connected to the ignition switch on, you can normally start.

If the key was a transponder key, then you will most likely need to take the VIN number to the dealer or a lock smith that makes transponder keys to get a key that will start it. Hopefully you will not have to have it towed to a dealer to have the key made.

My gauges on my dashboard don't work


Replace the instrument cluster because the original one is bad. Put in the new one. Start the car and it will die after one second because the anti-theft light will blink. Leave the key in the "on" position for 15 minutes. The "Theft Sys" light will stay solid. Turn key off, then start the car and it will run with the new cluster in it.
