The part where you insert the key needs to be replaced. Disabling the air bag and obtaining the special tools to get the steering wheel off can get expensive for a one time use. Go to the dealer to get it fixed. It may be covered on a recall too, so check that too.

    GM key cylinders have a spring that lets go inside which jams the key and prevents it turning. It needs to be replaced.

Will crank but will not start


You need to turn the key on as if you are starting it, letting the engine turn over, let go of the key, and allow it to remain in the ON position for ten minutes. Then turn the key to the off position and try to start the car. This should fix the problem. If it does not work first time repeat procedure.

Turn your key to the "on" position. Your security light will be flashing. Leave it in the on position and wait for 10 minutes. The security light will stop flashing, and it will reset itself. Turn the key back to the off position before trying to start it again.

2002 grand am 2.2 turns over wont start. fuel pressure 55psi, has spark


discovered the hard way- ($85.00 later) Step 1: turn key to "on" position. step 2: open driver door. (security light should be flashing on and off) step 3: wait ten minutes with key in "on position and driver door open. step 4: when 10 minutes is up-(youll know-because security light will have stoped flashing after 10 minutes) close driver door ,turn key to "off" position, then turn key "on" to start. drives me crazy!! I have to do it to mine sometimes 2-5 times a day! GM2.gif doesnt have a fuel reset button etc. like fords do.

2004 pontiac grand am car will not start


the security light will flash and disable the fuel injectors preventing the car from starting, if it thinks that it is being stolen. its easy to fix. set the parking brake to turn off the automatic headlights. next turn the key to the on position and wait ten minutes. the security light should stop flashing. then turn the key off and this will reset the security system. it should start immediatly afterwards.

Security light comes on and car wont start


I've owned 3 GA's, and have run into this problem once before. There's a problem in the security system. You DONT have to get it fixed right away, you will just have to give yourself an extra 30 minutes each time you want to take your car somewhere.
STEP 1- Insert your key into the ignition.
STEP 2- Turn the key to the "RUN" position (not all the way to the start position!)
STEP 3- Go have a smoke. Wait 10 minutes with the key in the "RUN" position.
STEP 4- Turn the key to the "OFF" position for 10 minutes.
STEP 5- Turn the key to the "RUN" position again for another 10 minutes.
STEP 6- Turn the key to the "OFF" position again, the immediately try to start the engine. It has never failed me.
I know it's a pain in your ***, but it will save you a costly repair when money's tight. Any questions about this, you can call a mecanic at the Pontiac GM dealer and he will probably tell you what I just tried to explain.
