Question about Cars & Trucks
YEAR,MAKE & MODEL ??
Posted on May 01, 2015
Could be the key...new car keys are equipped with built-in electronic devices that are set to specifically work only on a specific car....try an alternate key if you have one on hand....or it could be a relay....which is located in your fuse panel, and probably listed under ignition.....you can't tell when a relay is bad by looking at it when it is plugged into it's slot in the fuse tray.....you might have multiple fuse blocks on your car...check your manual for locations and fuse/relay locations/labels.....if you have an identical relay that is used to relay a signal to something like wipers or an other non ignition accessories....use it to check your ignition relay by unplugging it from the non ignition accessory plug and plugging it into your ignition plug to see if the car starts....you may have set your car into defensive mode by accidentally setting off your alarm system....there is a reset code or list of actions you have to do to reset the alarm in your manual or check on-line in forums or your manufacturers web site.....lastly....your ignition switch may be shorted out or a wire may have been cut or dislodged.....now your getting into a problem that will probably require you to tow your vehicle to the nearest or your favored mechanic/dealership. This will fall under a specialized area of auto electrical specialist......if you have a high quality code reading machine....plug it in and see what transpires....it might tell you more than you know about your problem now....can hurt...borrow the neighbors code reader.....have him/her set it up and operate it so you don't end up having to buy a new one because you operated it incorrectly....chin up....never say never....research the problem on line.....
Good luck and I hope I was of some service to your need.

You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

You could have a start that has gone bad and will need to be replace,or your having a Passlock system problem.
Your Passlock may need to relearn the ignition keys, if the ignition lock has gone bad like my in-laws Grand Am Gt, here is what i did so they will not get stranded any more. Buy a Passlock by pass module for around $70.00. You can orderone from GMPASSLOCK.COM in the mean time try resetting the Passlock. Good luck
Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure
1.) Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2.) Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3.) Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4.) Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5.) Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6.) Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password.
7.) With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.
Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

SOURCE: dash dead ,turn key
It there is a problem with the dash, there is probably no power to the anti theft module in your ignition. The car is in anti theft mode due to not being able to read your key transponder. Basically if it cant read the key, it thinks its being stolen. Either fix the dash lights, or fully bypass the security. All the security info you need is on here including how to bypass it.
