    did some one try and steal your vehicle some antitheft systems will shut off your fuel pump and since your security light is on that is what i thought of other then that i do not know i dont know alot about pontiacs did you check your fuses also some computers have a back up power supply so you might have to disconnect the black box and since you do have gm that would probably under the hood mounted on one of the fender wells

Try to start then don't turn key off until light goes out approx. 10 min. If it starts then it need an ignition lock cylinder.

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

2003 grand am wont start


Check obvious problems first. Do you have any indicator dash lights on when trying to crank the engine? A security light means your Passlock system is malfunctioning. If you can turn the engine, then the battery is most likely ok but you can disconnect it for about 5 minutes then reconnect it which will reset the computer. I had an issue with a 99 grand am dieing after starting. Pushing the key in kept it running. Turns out my ignition switch in the dash went bad.There are three coil packs in the v-6 and two in the 4 cylinder. A loose wire would more likely be the cause. Check the fuses under the hood in the convenience center. A bad computer, module near the coil packs, or a bad hall effect cam sensor could cause the fuel injectors to not fire and cut off the fuel supply. Check the fuel pump to see if its working by turning the key to on but not cranking it. If you hear a 2 second sound of the pump then a click then the fuel pump is most likely working.

Car cranks fine, was running great, cold morning wont start, sprayed start fluid motor runs until either gone. fuel filter?


this could be a few things fuel pump getting weak or your alarm could of activated itself and it disables the fuel to the engine, I would try reseting the built in alarm system. first put the key in the ignition and turn on till all the lights come on and let it sit 10 minutes with the key on, then after the 10 minutes is over turn the key to the off position and wait 3 seconds and then try to start. if it starts which is possible because grand ams and olds aleros are bad for the security system locking up by them self. Hope this helps.

2000 grand am overheats when the car is idle when


If you have A/C, turn it on. The fan(s) should come on immediately. If nothing happens, check that the fan(s) turn freely by hand and don't make any noise (from a bad bearing). Also check the fan relay and fuse. If the computer has a problem, it should show that it has one when a scanner is hooked up to it. The temperature sensor sends a signal to the computer and the computer tells the relay to turn on the fan(s).

TRY THIS RESET FOR THE SECURITY SYSTEM.

PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
