When driving on the roadway, the car will just quit. The automatic doorlocks will click and the engine will shut down. I pull over put it in park, then start it again and go. This happens intermittently...


2000-2002 Grand ams are notorious for having the most faulty passlock systems ever installed. You are experiencing a passlock failure. When the cars stalls on you, check to see if the "security" light illuminates on the dash board some where. That would be a 100% indicator that its the passlock

Look at this link i found when i had my problems. Read up on symptoms and fixes. 1 of those fixes eliminates all parts of that passlock system and you will never have to worry about it again.

I just wrote a repair for a guy to replace the passlock sensor, but it doesn't sound that extreme. Your key has a chip in it for the passlock security system, there are 13 different resistences for these chips. Make apsolutely sure the key you had cut, has the same coded resistence (eg. code 2 will turn the cylinder of a code 3 ignition, but will shut down in a few seconds.) If you have a code 2 key make sure you order a code 3 key before you have it cut. All 13 different keys can be cut to be able to turn in the ignition but only the right code will stay running.

Hi, does the security light flash? Maybe a problem with your Passlock system. See the Passlock section of this post: http://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/repair-topics/gm-anti-theft-systems

Does 1993 chevy trucks have passlock systems?


No it shouldn't have passlock. Sounds like it might be an ignition module.

Saturn vue 2006 honda v6 only runs for 2 seconds starts right up and runs 2 seconds still wont run in street for 2 days now padlock shows when motor shuts off


It sounds like the GM Passlock system is activating and shutting the fuel pump off. Are you using the original key or a copy? A copy will likely not start this car, because it lacks the GM Passlock chip.
If you're using an original, try another key if you have one. Otherwise you'll need a tow to the dealership as the Passlock module probably has a fault.
