How do I reset the security system on my 2002 grand am gt. I tried changing the factory radio and now my security system doesn't work

You can try this re-learn procedure, if that doesn't work you will need to bypass the security system. I hope you bought the wire harness adapter for that vehicle. They need it.

Perform the re-learning procedure

  1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not start).
  3. Observe the SECURITY light, after approximately 10 minutes the light will turn OFF.
  4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 10 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes
  6. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
  7. Start the engine (the vehicle has now learned the Sensor Data Code and/or password).

THIS IS EXACTLY THE REASON..... Man i hate Grand Ams. This problem happens in EVERY GM vehicle. But for some reason Grand Ams from 2001-2005 have this problem the MOST. This can be very costly to fix, but is also reasonably easy to bypass. Anyway, here is a link that explains EVERYTHING and gives you some ways to bypass this system so it wont do it again. Some advise, dont take this to a dealer. Ive heard horror storys about passlock security bills being upwards of 1500 bucks. Bypass this yourself and be rid of it forever.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am -- Security light/Passlock -- Engine turns over but won't start & the security light flashes. This has happened twice in the last 3 months. Do anyone know if this type of problem...

there is a way to bypass the system we do it often but you will need to buy a data bypass unit to install in order to bypass the passlock sensor in the dash. Once the unit is installed, it is turned on by inserting the key into ignition, then the unit will send the proper code to the BCM allowing it to unlock the ECM and then car will start.

The Horn started going off constantly without warning and would not turn off until I pulled the Fuse. What would cause this? (2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT)

Thought it might be stuck. Was gonna tell you to hit the horn on the steering wheel to see if it was stuck. LOL You could still try that LOL take the cover off and check the wiring there.

Electrical problem

If you have the passkey system you might want to take it to the dealer to have it tested, and if that is ok then there is a way to bypass the security system which I had to do in my Bonneville.
