Who ever checked the car is incompetent.

If the car is failing as described it should be throwing fault codes. You need to have a proper fault diagnosis carried out with the correct equipment so you may need to go to a GM dealer. Once the codes are thrown up on the scanner the cause can be diagnosed and the fault rectified.

Without physically checking your car it is impossible for someone here to diagnose the cause because there are multiple issues that could be causing the problem you have.

Also check with GM if your car has been subject to recall for faulty ignition switches. The affected models and years are published on line so you should be able to check yourself.

How can I disable the alarm in a 1999 Pontiac Montana , the alarm goes off every time I start it with a pass key and shuts everything back off?

You cannot disable that system. It is integrated into the entire operating system. The computer will not enable the injectors unless it first receives the correct signal from the PassKey III system.

My 1999 Bonneville will be sitting in a parking lot at work or at home and the alarm will just start going off. No one is around or close by with the keyless remote.\r\nWhat is causing this and can i...

A lot depends on exactly what is happening here. Are we talking about an aftermarket alarm system? If so, I personally would recommend removing the entire system - they are usually more trouble than they are worth! (Just my personal opinion based on 36 years of auto repair experience)

NOTE: The information below applies ONLY to problems with the FACTORY security system.

There is a possibility that the horns going off are not being caused by the alarm system at all. Some GM airbag modules/steering wheel switches have been known to short out intermittently and cause the horns to sound for no apparent reason. If the horn is staying on solid (BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP) then it is most likely NOT the alarm system. If it is beeping on and off at regular intervals (BEEP.....BEEP......BEEP...) and the headlamps are flashing, then the security system is probably at fault.

Low battery voltage or a shorted cell in a battery can "trick" your alarm system into "thinking" that someone is trying to steal your car. A THOROUGH battery and charging system check should be performed to find out if this could be the cause.

Also, your factory alarm is a PassKeyII system. This means that if there is a malfunction in the system, there is most likely one or more fault codes stored in the Body Control Module (BCM) that can lead you to the cause of the problem so you can get it fixed.

Please note that MOST generic code readers CANNOT access these type of codes.

Another way to work around this is to "disarm" the system. To do this, unlock the door using the key. Press the "unlock" button on the door. Then press the "unlock" button on the key fob (keyless remote). The system will disarm. When you leave your car, use the KEY, not the remote to lock the car. (If you use the remote, the system will be armed again.)

What causes the security light to start flashing and disable the starter? have to wait with the key on, and it is becoming a real hassle

Hello! Unfortunately, you are experiencing a common issue with many Grand Am owners. The problem is that you have a defective PassLock sensor. When the sensor doesn't "close" when you turn the ignition, it detects a fault and will not start. If you leave the ignition in the "On" position for 10 minutes, it will reset and allow you to start the vehicle. The ignition cylinder contains the sensor, and this part is roughly $400 and not particularly easy to replace.
There are however, bypass methods available that will disable the PassLock feature entirely. I have included a link to the instructions here.
NOTE: Be aware that some of the bypass options will disable your PassLock anti theft system ENTIRELY. I recommend utilizing one of the options that explicitly states that your system will be fully operational after modification (toggle switch method, for instance)

Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

Pump was loud then not replaced worked for week then same

Lower voltage is just as bad as too much. Check to be sure the entire fuel pump system has proper voltage. I myself would start at the pump that will save you time if it ok.
