    If the ignition is by-passed electrically, the steering wheel will still be at a lock position

Truck wont start


You can try inserting the key into the ignition, turning it to the run position (without trying to start it), and switch the valet switch on. Turn the ignition off and try to start the SUV. If that doesn't work the remote will need to be fixed. Either replace the battery or have the remote replaced. If the problem is within the alarm control module. you may need to have it removed or replaced. The system can not be bypassed. If you have other questions, please feel free to write back. Good luck.

I'm working on a 97 geo prizm and need to find the ignition relay,I rplaced the ignition switch and have no power getting to the switch,there is power at the harness and I can bypass the switch an


If you can jump it at the switch and get it to start, then the ignition relay must be working. It is hard to tell from your post but I think you are using power from another source to do this? I am thinking you have a blown fuse on the wire the furnishes power to you ignition switch.

I have a 2001 Olds Intrigue that won't start every once in a while. When it won't start the security light flashes so GM told me it was the passcode and I would have to change the ignition switch...


you can not bypass the security in that car, it is built into the main computer, they have problems with the ignition switch screwing up and the only way to start it while the light flashes is to turn the key to ON but don't crank engine, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes until light goes out then start car.

I have a 1997 sunfire I recently replaced the ignition and starter box but this morning went 2 start it and it wouldnt start it will crank but its not getting any spark the fuel pumps not kicking in or...


GM vehicles are equipped with an anti theft system. There are several parts that must communicate properly for their system to work. When they don't communicate, it will either shut off the starter or injectors. You may have had this problem and mis diagnosed it as ignition or starter. Also after changing the ignition this may have interrupted the system also. Look for a light on the dash that says "security". if you see this light, then this is the problem. I've had great luck in just bypassing this system entirely. Read about it on this page.plus some "do it yourself" fixes. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Car was rinning perfect. One day it would not start. there was nothing, no clicking ,bell and guages were working. Jump start was nothing. Installed a new battery there was nothing. Went bact back 2 hours...


It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

Replaced the starter, the ignition switch, and the relay on the starter and know my 1999 Pontaic Sunfire will not start. I have a theft system but it don't work do I need to reset that?


Changing the ignition has caused a break in the communication of the anti theft security system. Here is a link that will explain how this system works and offer some ways to fix it yourself. I've been dealing with these systems for a long time, i've had great luck with just bypassing the entire system. there is a link for that also on this page.

Ignition switch will cause you to loose your head lights and turn signals. You will still be able to start the car and hold the switch for your brights but normal function is gone. Check it out it usually only runs about $20-$30 for replacement part but you need a special puller to get to it.
