3.turn ON 10min.
4.turn OFF 10sec.
5.turn ON 10min.
turn OFF ON and start

Car starts up for a seacond and shuts off and the security light flashes


Sound like a SECURITY SYSTEM is armed; I suggest check in the Owners Manual to disarm...

zjlimited_1402.jpg
When the PASS-Key III system senses that someone is using the wrong key, it shuts down the vehicle's starter and fuel systems. The starter will not work and fuel will stop being delivered to the engine. Anyone using a trial-and-error method to start the vehicle will be discouraged because of the high number of electrical key codes.

When trying to start the vehicle if the engine does not start and the SECURITY light comes on, the key may have a damaged transponder. Turn the ignition off and try again.

If the engine still does not start, and the key appears to be undamaged, try another ignition key. At this time, you may also want to check the fuse. If the engine still does not start with the other key, your vehicle needs service. If your vehicle does start, the first key may be faulty.

Hope this helps.

2002 Pontiac Grand prix wont start; unable to remove key


On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

Grand prix no start


Try locating and reading the fuse box to discover which fuse is for the security system. Pull the fuse for the security system. Good luck.

Need to bypass triad security system - car wont start


There are several configurations of the same security system. But one sure fire way to correct this issue is to get a bypass kit. Any shop that installs remote startups has the ability to bypass this system. Since the sytem measures the resitance of the key/lock and asociated wiring any shorting of those wires will make it very difficult to defaet without some expertise.

Sometimes the remote atart kit also includes the bypass, so you can get two for one here.

Good luck

Security system wont let car start


It sounds like the security system has been activated so you need to roll down the drivers side window and close the door. Reach in and turn on the key to the Run position and leave in on for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes is up, turn off the key and then try to start the car. The car should start. If it doesn't start do the process over again. This usually fixes the problem. There is no way to turn off the security system unless you have a key fob. If you have the key fob, just unlock the car and that will disable the security system. I hope this has been helpful.

My 2002 pontaic grand amm wont start


I had this problem with my 2002 grand am. I had a problem with the security system. I had to turn the key forward for 10 minutes until the system reset. When it was reset...the security light would stop blinking on the dash. Then you can turn the key back and try to start it. Hope this helps. I had to take my car to the shop and have something replaced ( can't remember exactly what it was..maybe ignition switch).
