1997 pontiac grand am starts then stalls replaced the fuel pump no anti theft light


With that pump you did the fuel filter also right.. I know you did,

or should have.. BUT what about that gas you pulled out of the tank? was it good gas, Did you put the old gas back in? Maybe watered down gas??

Just a few ideas.. Sorry.. BCB..

1999 PONTIAC GRAND PRE WON'T START!


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things including the anti-theft system.

We turn key all lights on dash come on but will not start Anti-Theft system light stays on


I suggtes check the THEFT SYSTEM disarm procedure section in your Owners Manual; if you dont have this document, could download from this link: Pontiac/Grand-Am/1997/a/Owners-Manual

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this free answer).

I have a 97 Grand Am Which the theft system is keeping the car from starting. I have had the computer reset several times and it worked a couple of times but it no longer will let me start the car. Please...


Very Very Common GM Problem.
It is called a PassLock 2 system.

You can reset the computer yourself very easily.

Turn key to ON position (do NOT start). Leave in ON position for EXACTLY 10 MINUTES. As SOON as the anti-theft light quits flashing, and turns off, then IMMEDIATELY start the car.

That''s it!

You can do this everytime and it will work.

They do sell a passlock 2 bypass kit very affordable online that you can install but you won't have anti-theft but you won't have the problem either.

My grand am starts fr about 10 seconds perfectly then shuts off can't find the problem any input on this?


Is your anti theft light staying on when you turn your key into the on postion, if so you need to reset it. Just leave your key in the on position for abut 20 min and the light should go off then it should start.
