Hi Karen,

Did you have the battery changed recently? I've experienced the same thing for several months. At first it was random but it progressively gotten worse. My husband changed the battery about 10 months ago and the connection was loose. So he changed the terminal connector. It still did not work until we went to the auto parts store and got something that looked like a thimble that covers the battery terminals. This provided a nice tight fit and now I don't have that problem anymore.

Begin by checking the battery to make sure it has 12v. clean both terminals where they contact the battery posts, check for 12v at the large battery cable on the starter. Check the small wire on the starter for 12v with the key turned to the start position. Be sure that engine end of negative cable is also clean and secure. If good voltage is present at both starter connections as tested, likely the starter is bad. If no power to small wire, check neutral safety switch and ignition switch for power going into and out of them.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE security system wont let car start


first most GM OEM systems will need to recognize the key first and foremost ,to do that you will need to roll window down on driver door,turn the key to the run position and with engine NOT running leave the key on for 10 minutes exactly ..then turn ignition off then try to start engine. if original system is working engine should start normally

Won't start, could it be fob or engine?


Try not using the fob at all open the door with the key. And start the jeep if it works without issue then its the fob. If its still not working correctly remove the battery from the fob and try again(since if it was damaged could be sending the signal for the panic button) the next step is the key try your spare security key can become worn and cause issues with the antitheft system. After that it only leaves computer problems and those can get spendy

Won't start. Turn the ignition and nothing. The engine light comes on and the auto theft light comes on for a few moments and goes off. I tried the couple things suggested in the owners' manual...


if nothing happens when you turn the key the problem is most likely the ignition switch and housing(had mine replaced 3 times already. firstr time at 12,000 miles) what you can try is hit key with rubber mallet while trying to turn but this would only be to get it started so you can drive to a chevy dealer(dont waste your time at any old repair shop for this). Hope this helps.
