After completing the 45 minute relearn procedure for a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix message center Now says system not programmed

Relearn for what ? Anti theft system PK3 ? The relearn procedure is three 10 min. procedures for a total of 30 min.
30-Minute Relearn Procedure
Use this procedure after replacing the following components:
The passkey III (PK3) keys


The PCM, see important above

Important: This procedure is not available on vehicles equipped with option code (Z49).
If replacing a BCM with an GM SPO Replacement Part, perform the procedure to setup a new BCM prior to the 30-minute relearn procedure.

  1. With a master passkey III key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Observe the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT message on the drivers information center (DIC), after approximately 10 minutes the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT message on the DIC will turn off.
  3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.
  5. Important: The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
  6. With a master passkey III key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
  7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs.

How do you change imrc on 2007 jeep compass

it all there, every day ,all the time. no need to wonder.

or join jeep forum.?

it unscrews,

and screws back on.

but the real question is, is it needing calibration. during or after.

replacing it is childs play, youtube that, bingo?

did you do all 25 test in the FSM, yet, on iRMC

even making sure the flapper is not jammed??????

if yes, and the actuator is really bad,

read this in the last page .

If the Manifold Flow Valve is replaced, a non volatile memory reset must be performed to learn the new port flap adaptive values.

now more lil\'horrors.. see what happens if you jerk the battery


Vehicles equipped with engine and transmission computers may require a relearn procedure after the vehicle battery has been disconnected. Most vehicle computers memorize and store vehicle operational patterns. When the battery is disconnected, the information may be cleared. If the information is cleared, the computer will go into default mode in order to operate the vehicle. The vehicle computer will relearn operational patterns each time the vehicle is restarted. The relearning process may take up to 40 or more key cycles.

When a specific engine component is replaced, a relearn procedure may be required. If the relearn procedure is not performed, the vehicle may exhibit the following:

  • Harsh or poor shift quality

  • Poor fuel mileage

  • Hesitation or stumble

  • Unstable idle or stalling

  • Lean or rich running conditions

If an accessory component was replaced, a relearn procedure may also be required. The following systems and components may not work properly without a relearn procedure:

  • Anti-theft system

  • Steering system

  • Power window system

  • Power sunroof system

It is important to reset any Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC\'s) before performing the relearn procedure. Most relearn procedures can be performed with the use of an OBD-2 scan tool.


This reconnection procedure is to be performed anytime the battery has been disconnected.

  1. Connect the battery negative cable to the battery post and tighten the clamp nut to 45 inch lbs. (5 Nm).

  2. If the vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Program (ESP), once the battery is reconnected, the Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) in the clockspring needs to be calibrated.


    The SAS requires calibration anytime the battery or an ABS (ESP) component has been disconnected for any length of time. If the SAS is not calibrated following battery reconnection, the ESP/SAS indicator lamp is illuminated following 5 ignition cycles indicating the need for calibration.

  3. To calibrate, perform the following:

  4. Start the engine.

  5. Center the steering wheel.

  6. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left until the internal stop in the steering gear is met.

  7. Turn the wheel all the way to the right until the opposite internal stop in the steering gear is met.

  8. Center the steering wheel.

  9. Turn off the engine.

What does codes p0700 and p0605 means on a 2001 pt cruiser

Both diagnostic troubhle codes (DTC's) mean the same thing. There are really no testing procedures listed but look at your connectors and wires. Now for the bad news...P0605 & P0700 means there is internal problem with your transmission control module and in 99 percent of the cases it means replacement of the TCM. They do need to be programed afted installation. 2 procedures need to be performed. One is called a pinion factor and the other is called a relearn or quick relearn procedure and they do require the proper diagnostic computer equipment. The TCM is located behind the splash guard on the front left (drivers side wheel. Once you remove the tire and splash guard it is mount to the frame rail and has a 60 pin connector plugged into it. Wish it was better news but hope this helps clearify what the codes mean....
