Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
I have a 1999 grand am and the security light keeps coming on. when i try to start it, it wont start. why is this happening and what can i do to keep it from happening?
I believe that vehicle has a 'PATS' antitheft system. There's a special 'chip' in the key that tells the car it's the original key and not a copy.
There is a way to 'hack' the antitheft but, to maintain the security of everyone that has a system like this in thier vehicle I won't post it.
Like for most factory codes for radio's or other antitheft system problems if you bring your vin# and/or registration (vin is on there too) and maybe state licence to prove you own the car, you can walk into a dealer and get the help you need without bringing the car in.
Decent dealerships will know everything from a vin#.
If they wan't you to bring it in, it's because they wan't to make money for it because they need to get a number off of a module or other service that you may not be able to do. Try a different place.
Also a car audio place can help if the installer's are talented and familiar with remote starts.
