I found this web site and it works great to disarm the securuty system and only cost you about .75 cents and some time and paitients. The dealership will charge you hundreds of doliars and the problem will come back. We did this to our daughters car and she hasn't had any futher problems with the car not starting because to the security system. Hope this helps !

I have only 1 car and remote lock< I gave the remote lock to my wife so I could l lock the key in the car when I was done with it. She left town for the weekend and when I went to start the car I got...

Is your security light flashing? If so, your onboard security system has disabled the starter. The security system can be reset (providing you are using the ORIGINAL key for the car) you may have to hook up a battery charger to accomplish this. First hook up the battery charger then when you get in the car, set the parking brake before turning the ignition on. This will keep the daytime running lights from coming on. Then turn the key to the RUN position and wait for the security light to stop flashing. (This takes about 10 minutes.) Then, without turning the key off, turn the key to the START position. The engine should start.

If this doen't work, you will probably have to wait until your wife gets home so you can reset the security system by using the remote to lock the unlock the doors.

I would also recommend investing in a second remote and key so you don't have this problem in the future. The second key and remote is pretty easy to progrm on your vehicle. This can be done either by the dealer or most aftermarket repair shops. You MAY even want to try to do it yourself. Instructions for programming additional keys and remotes are located in your Owner's Manual.

I had to replace the whole ignition in my 2000 grand am now it wont start i think i need to reset the security but dont know wat it is

The security system in the new lock cylinder has to be programed to the ecm. To do this you just have to leave the key in the run position for 10 minutes until the security light stops flashing. Hook a battery charger to it when you are doing it because if the voltage goes low during the 10 mins, you will have to start over.

What's the deal with security light with the 2000 Pont Grand AM? What is it for and how can Im get RID of it?

Hello.... The Security Light is there because the vehicle has a manufactured built-in security system that is part of the ignition system. The sad part is that it cannot be removed. If you did remove the components that make up the system the vehicle would not start and if it did start it would stop running after about 10 mins.

Hope this helps...

Programing ignition key for 2000 grand am security light comes on and the car will not start for 10 to 15 minutes.

Turn the key on and wait for the security light to stop blinking (may take about ten minutes). Then turn the key off and wait for at least one minute. Then try to start. That should program the key chip.

Turn your key to the "on" position. Your security light will be flashing. Leave it in the on position and wait for 10 minutes. The security light will stop flashing, and it will reset itself. Turn the key back to the off position before trying to start it again.
