SOURCE: 2004 Pontiac grand prix. The display board reads

take to a dealership as will need scanning by the manufacturers diagnostic equipment as any thing else could make the situation worse as the vehicle might think some one's trying to steal it , i know its metal and stuff but the computer onboard does try to think!

I drilled a hole in the middle of my key on my 2004 Pontiac grand prix. Now my car won't start and is displaying starting disabled due to theft system. What do i do? Cant I disarm the theft system?

It is quite the prosses to dissarm the security system.I have tried before to no avail.I sugest you replace the lock cylender and have the dealer reprogram for the new key.This is your best bet to getting your car back.

2004 Pontiac grand prix gtp won't start- fully

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.

My 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix runs good for about 5 min. Then the tack goes wild and the car starts to try to quit. No check engin lite and no codes.

It could be the crankshaft position sensor. I have a 2001 Grand Prix, and when the crankshaft position sensor went out, the tach would drop to zero, and the car would act like it wanted to stall for about a second.
