The pin on your key is defective.
you will have to call the dealership " any pontiac dealer " give them your vin number and they should be able to rder a key for it
what happens is that there is a resistor inside the key that opens the circuit and makes the car run, if the resistor is faulty or damaged the car won't start " at all " no matter what you do.
you can replace a " huge number of thing " and still won't run.
cheapest thing to do is to go to the dealer and get a new key for it.
100 % sure

Dashboard tire pressure light is on


The tire pressure sensor light being on (after the initial warm-up/self-test when the ignition is turned on) means one of 3 things: a) you have a tire with low pressure (including the spare), b) one of the tire pressure sensors has a bad battery, or c) the system has a malfunction. First, make sure all tires have good pressure and then have your local dealership/auto shop attempt to reset the fault. If this doesn't work, you are in for a difficult time dealing with the other two issues (batteries are not cheap, and neither is diagnosing a bad system)...sorry!

Poor gas milage?


Thinking you are getting poor gas milage,Your engine is running smooth,no misses,Engine runs smooth while accelerating up a hill, Still poor gas milage, Check your tire pressure. I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 4.3 Ltr. Auto, loaded. I have just over 154000 miles on it,I change my fluids every 5000 miles. Summer driving milage got real bad. I drive a Blazer hard. I tow a 16ft trailor usally loaded to the top with wood. Tires get hot in the summer, while in the winter, they stay mostly cool. Always check your air pressure.Most vehicals are equipted with radials now days, So if you think a tire looks low, check it, Usally they low. Usally in the winter months, nobody checks tire pressure. It really does make a difference. I went from 17.2 MPG to 19.5 MPG, while pulling the same trailor loaded with wood. I cut my own wood then stack it in my trailor to sell. I have Good Year Wranglers size: P235/75R/15 I just replace these with new ones. The old ones are going on my trailor. Counted milage on tires are 65000 Miles. Tires were rated at 40000 miles, Under normal use.

We have put winter tires not sensored on our van and before doing do one tire was low in pressure How do we clear this??


Without having sensors in the winter tires you will be unable to clear this. The reason the light is still on is because the bcm can't find your sensors.

Yellow horshoe light with exclamation point in middle


Yeah, it is suppose to look like a low inflated tire. See the treads on the bottom. When you inflate the tires, you might need to drive a little for the light to turn off. The tires have sensors that send a signal, but only when rotating.

This happened to me last winter; and for some reason, it took an abnormally long amount of time for the light to go off. Not sure if it was a coincidence or pure happestance, but my light went off when the ambient temp increased above 20F (even though my tires had been properly inflated for two days and drove 80 miles).

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.

Tire pressure monitor


32 psiis actually low for a 3500. I have a 1500 silverado that runs 44 psi cold. The tire inflation monitor , monitors inflated cirunference. Sooooo, If it isn'nt round enough, it will let you know. Driving warms up both the air and the tire,off course changing everything again. Pressure is up and tire is bigger. Ask me not how it can tell what is going on with the tire sitting still. I'm only on page 9,000, the answer is here somewher. :-) Well good luck. I do know the above is accurate._Ned_
