I have a Technical Service Bulletin. I'll even hand copy it from my program.

TECHNICAL

Engine stalls, Security Lamp illuminated, DTCs (Replace Theft Deterrent Control Module)

Models:
2000-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix built prior to Vin Breakpoint 3F115058

Condition

Some customers may comment that the vehicle starts then stalls and the security lamp is illuminated. These symptoms may be intermittent and after several attempts, the vehicle may stay running.

Cause

The condition may be caused by either a chafed wire in the theft deterrent module wiring harness or an electrical interference within the theft deterrent module not allowing the fuel enable signal to be detected.

Correction

Replace the theft deterrent module with Part No. 10335045 and reroute the module wiring harness to a new location using the procedure listed below.

1 Reroute the module harness on the outside of the steering column channel and tie strap the lower portion to the larger ignition bundle.

2. Replace the tie strap removed from the tilt head during disassembly. Secure the new strap in the hole in the tilt mechanism and around the module wire and ignition SIR wires, but below the tie strap located on the sir wires.

I have a 1999 chevy silverado and the security light comes on and stays on. After awhile, the light begins to flassh and the truck will not start till I reset the security system. how do I fix this?


you need to turn ignition on and leave key in on position for ten minutes then turn key off then back on again for another ten minutes then one more time for a total of three times or 30 minutes and the system should relearn the key. System is called passlock. I can email you the procedure form alldata if you want.

Won't start, radio locked, security light flashing and check engine. Disconnected positive battery and connected started. While driving radio locked up again amp dropped out and air quit stopped shut off...


If your vehicle has the GM Passkey system, it is possible the security lockout has been engaged. The way to reset the Passkey system is as follows.
1.Turn the key to the ignition "on" position (but do not start the engine) and leave it in the on position for 10 minutes. After the ten minutes has passed, turn the key to the off position.
2. repeat the above step 2 more times. This will take about 30 minutes.
3.Do not attempt to start the vehicle or use any accessories while performing this reset procedure.

I hope this helps.

It may be as simple as trying a different key but the security systems on gm vehicles have had problems with the ignition cylinders going bad and preventing the car from starting.

Help! I have 98 Saturn SL2 that was live one minute dead the next


Sounds exactly like my 1999 SL2 which had "burning and arching" in the fuse box. Car one day be fine the next I'd take it to the store, come back in 10 minutes and wouldn't start, no radio, no power windows, no keyless entry remote, no rear defrost and even locking doors from inside power buttons it sounded odd. This fixed the problem by replacing the fuse box.

2002 Monte Carlo Security system has shut car down completely unable to start car


the process takes about thirty minutes. in three ten minute key cycles. here is how you do it . make sure that the battery is fully charged. step on parking brake pedal and leave it down this will keep the head lights off. turn the key and try to start it then leave it in the on position. you have to leave the key in the on position for ten minutes. you will see the security light on. after the ten minutes the light will go off then turn the key to the start position. turn the key all the way back to the off position and count to three. then try to start it and leave the key in the on position for another ten minutes till the security light goes out. you have to do this same process three times to reset the security system. sometimes you get lucky and it will start after the first ten minute cycle.

Secruity light stays on the truck won't start


Did the batery die??? Did you have to boost??? could be one of two things the pcm or your key needs to be reprogrammed, for the key connect the batery to a batery charger with it still connected to the truck, leave the ignition on for about 10-15 minutes or until the security light goes out, when it does go out turn off the ignition and turn it back on for another 10-15 minutes repeat this another time and it should be ok, if not take it to GM to have them check the pcm or replace...

goodluck...

Car will now work or start


It looks like you have a problem with the alarm system. Try disconnecting the battery cable for ten minutes or so.
Before unplugging battery, ensure you have your car radio security code, should be in car documentation, you may be asked for the code on restart, if you lost it the stereo won't work.

If you still have the problem go back to car dealer and have alarm system checked.

If alarm system is ok or not present, what iremains is a possible wiring contact, that is quite unusuallly related to door lock.
