SOURCE: 2001 pontiac sunfire wont start
I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

If the theft light is on try to start then leave key on until light goes approx 10min. If this works it needs an ignition lock cylinder.

well short of a faulty body control module which only the dealer can replace for you i do have 1 idea. your right you do have the pass lock3 system, do you have remote starter? the module used to bypass the system tricks the bcm into thinking the keys in the ign 24/7. it synthesizes the rf signal that bounces back off your key and allows the car to fire. when these aftermarket systems are installed they usually cause a 2-3 second delay but not this long... if this is your situation and you have a remote start i'd take it to the installer it may be goin. the kit comonly used is called a "by pass kit" thats the brand name, you can try to reprogram yourself but very tricky and if you do it wrong youll need a tow to the dealer. if this is way out in left feild, please tell me and ill look into it more. look up that module for programing instruction

Hi, it sounds like the starter solenoid was not wired properly. You have 2 wires at the starter, right? The bigger wire goes to the big top post on the solenoid, right? The smaller wire is called the start wire and it goes to the smaller terminal labeled "S." Is that how you wired it? You also have to be careful when tightening the nuts on the terminals that the start wire terminal does not touch the other terminals and vice versa. Do you have the starter in the car now? Can you take a picture to send me?
