If the key won't turn it may be worn. Try a spare if you have it. Is the steering wheel turned hard and locked? Sometimes you can gently "rock" the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. You can also shoot some wd-40 using a straw into the ignition cylinder to possibly free up any wafers in the cylinder assembly that may be sticking

SOURCE: How can I bypass a anti auto theft system on my 1990 cadillac seville?

I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer

The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

2000 pontiac montana security system locked and it won't start. The information center on the van shows as follows; Low battery light, Then Security light, Then Low fuel light. Its full of gas. Help?


Does the security light come on when you turn the key to run ,Does it go off in a few min. The proper way to reset the anti-theft system would be to turn the key to the on position for 10 min. if the light goes out in that time ,turn the key off for a few seconds . Then try an start the vehicle . If light comes back on an won't start there is a hard fault . You mite at that point wan't to do a theft system by- pass . Also have your battery checked and or charging system . A low battery , a malfuctioning charging system may cause these type problems .

2001 chry. Sebring how do I by pass anti theft...so I could use screwdriver to turn ign. Sw. Nd start car.........,.


You cant. It uses a keyfob. you need the chip in the key to work or the ignition wil stay locked out. There is no bypass. Otherwise the anti-theft feature wouldnt work very well. No other option aside from a new key and having a mechanic or dealership program new keys

2008 Pontiac Montana S6 Won't Start.


Sounds like the anti-theft/alarm system was triggered.
Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver door with the key to disable the alarm ?
And you need at least 12 volts to crank the engine so the battery may need to be charged up first.

The anti-theft system, cutting off the fuel system cause it did not recognize my key, started coming on more commonly. Now it just does not turn the engine over. It just makes a click sound when it goes...


Good Evening, your anti-theft is in the ignition. If you go to start the car, then leave the key in the run position when it does not start for about 11- 15mins. Once the security light goes off then turn it off and try starting it. If it does not work you might have to do it a couple more times. What happens is the system relearns your key. Hope that helps,
Thanks,
Joey

I have a pontiac montana 2003 and lost original ignition key but found a spare I had made at walmart, the van wont start. I can turn the key but it does not crank or even turn over and I tryed to jump it...


Did your factory key have a little black thing on the blade with a wire on each side? I believe you have the PassLock II factory anti-theft system, as this was standard on all models. You cannot use a WALMART key to start the car. You need a factory key with the right resistor in it. Your dealer can look up the resistance you need from the VIN on the car. Some locksmiths may also be able to do this. Get a blank key with the right resistor and have them cut it to match your WALMART key.

My 2001 pontiac ssei says to service theft system


I would take it to a dealer and have the ignition switch looked at, That is either pass key (pk stamped in key) or pass key 3 (pk3) and the ignition switch is probably having trouble reading to key to disengage the anti theft system, eventually it wont let the car start, and it never happens when your home!
