Question about 1994 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

My 1994 pontiac grand prix is not starting intermitently. My security light is on my dash and won't go off. It normally will start after a few minutes, but it is happening more and more. I got a new key with a new ohm resistor and that helped for a while but it is starting to do it again. Is there a way I can override the security system to where it doensn't need an ohm reading to start. I'll take the risk of someone stealinga 94 grand prix in 2011

There is no way to override the security system that I know of.You probably have a bad ignition cylinder.This is the part that the key goes into.Unless you know the resistance of that key and then you need to get a resistor of that resistance and put it in the wiring from the ignition cylinder on the wire that goes to the pcm.This will enable the pcm to allow fuel to the engine.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have a 1994 pontiac grand prix 3.4 and the car starts up and runs fine but my security light is on all the time how do I get it to go off

Something has happened to the security, you don't have it anymore. The computer went to default mode and lets the car run. You can either fix the problem(you have to take it somewhere to have it scanned) or remove the instrument panel and take out the light, Or you can live with it..I would just live with it.

2002 pontiac grand prix starts but shuts off right away

Try scanning the computer. If the computer scans very quickly, like in less than 1 second, the computer is bad. The theory is that the computer has 2 modes of operation: cold operation and normal operation. When the normal operation side of the computer goes bad, the car does what yours is doing.

1993 pontiac grand prix wont start has battery but starter wont turn

First thing i would check is the security system. If the battery is good, and it feels like everything is normall except it just wont crank. It could be the security or the starter. Put your key in and try to start it, when it doesnt start, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY this is a dead give away and you could find all the answers you may need on this link

1994 gp 3100 ,wont start, turn key getting all the dash lites but starter not engaging, security lite is flashing, the car was drove to my hse i know it runs any ideas, battery is new, key is a #7.with key...

You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!
