Did you leave a battery charger on it because it takes a hr sometimes with the key on or with a scanner to reprogram sometimes put the origimnal key in first turn it on off then next key on off it might work but if not put in memory as well check for burnt fuses i had one and it didnt work as well a bad relay in the fuse box as well so try main key first and does it start the car

SOURCE: How do I reprogram the 2004 Pontiac Vibe key fob?

To begin programming, follow the procedure.

  1. Set the following conditions: • Ignition off and ignition key out of cylinder. • All doors closed except drivers door. • Drivers door is unlocked.
  2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch twice within 5 seconds.
  3. After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and remove it.
  4. After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
  5. Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back to LOCK at approximately 1 second interval 1to5 times to select desired mode. • 1 time for add mode • 2 times for rewrite mode • 3 times for confirmation mode • 5 times for prohibition mode
  6. Remove the ignition key from the key cylinder.
  7. After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door LOCK to UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode. • In the confirmation mode, when the operation is performed twice, it directs that 2 types of recognition codes have been registered. • In the confirmation mode, if the number of the registration code is 0 the LOCK to UNLOCK operation is automatically performed 5 times. • If the prohibition mode or confirmation mode is selected, registration procedure is completed. • If the add or rewrite mode has been selected, the doors will lock-unlock once or twice at 1 second intervals, once for add mode or twice for rewrite mode. • If the confirmation mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 2 times at 2 second intervals to inform the technician of the number of transmitters programmed. • If the prohibition mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 5 times at 1 second intervals.
  8. Registering new recognition codes for the add mode or rewrite mode. • Within 40 seconds after the add mode or the rewrite mode has been selected, press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1.0 to 1.5 seconds. Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the buttons for more than 1.0 seconds. • Within 3 seconds after the transmitter has been turned off, the LOCK and UNLOCK operation will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is completed correctly. In case the LOCK and UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of recognition code has failed. Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once again.
  9. Press a transmitter button for 2 seconds. The doors will lock-unlock once at a 1 second interval to inform the technician that the signal has been received from the transmitter. • If the doors lock-unlock once, the transmitter programming has been completed. Go to step 8 to continue programming for additional transmitters. • If the doors lock-unlock twice, the transmitter programming is not complete. Go to step 8 to begin the transmitter programming again.
If any of the following conditions occur during programming, the remote control door lock receiver will return to normal operation:

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.
