First check with locale Pontiac dealer giving your full vin number of car to determine if it has anti-theit. feature. If so, there is a chip in key to allow it to start. May require a new chip key cut from vin if chip went bad if that is at all possible. Never heard of a chip going bad but anything is possible.

How do you unlock a igniiton on a 1998 pontiact sunfire


its possible that you need to try and turn the steering wheel left and right (IT WILL TAKE SOME EFFORT) while trying to turn the key. and you dont need to put pressure on the key , turn it same as you would when starting it normally. you dont want to break the key off.also try and put the gear shift lever up into park at the same time( thats asuming its a automatic with shift lever on the steering colum) somtimes you can get the car to close to a curb or somthing and having pressure on the tires in a less than straight position will get you locked in on the sterring wheel,shift lever and key lock possition . so with one hand pull the steering wheel left with as much pressure as you can and at same time trying to turn key with your right hand.

1998 sunfire want start


is the security light lit? try a different key to start.
if no start do the following.
try to start car then let go of key do not turn it off.
wait 15 min for security light to go out.
turn key off wait 5 seconds then try to start again.

the passkey system is not the best design, a little wear on the key and it won't start, if the tumbler wears out it won't start.

How to remove or bypass the factory installed anti theft vehicle immobilizer.


in the 1996 sunfire GM uses an anti theft lock system. It can be triggered by all sorts of things. In order to relinquish this you must have a key to turn the ignition. These are not coded just plain cut keys. Once you attain this you put the key in and turn the ignition to the ACC position and wait ten minutes (theft lock light will turn off), turn off and take key out. You MUST do this 3 times and then the theft lock will be disarmed.
