The wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out

My car does this alot to but I think its cause you have to unlock the car, get in it, shut the doors and then start the car because mine does it when i open the doors.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix pk3 relearn procedure does the starter to disable due to theft system to turn to turn off before going to step 2off before going to the second 15 minutes with Ken secL


Your doing it wrong !
30-Minute Relearn Procedure
Use this procedure after replacing the following components:
?€¢
The passkey III (PK3) keys


?€¢
The BCM


?€¢
The PCM, see important above

Important: This procedure is not available on vehicles equipped with option code (Z49).
If replacing a BCM with an GM SPO Replacement Part, perform the procedure to setup a new BCM prior to the 30-minute relearn procedure.

  1. With a master passkey III key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Observe the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT message on the drivers information center (DIC), after approximately 10 minutes the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT message on the DIC will turn off.
  3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.
  5. Important: The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
  6. With a master passkey III key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
  7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs.

I changed the starter with new as old one was not turning. After replacing new starter my truck does not crank and start, Please help me to start my Truck. Anti theft light is blinking all the time.


You solved your own problem.
The anti-theft system is probably keeping it from starting.
Get the system checked out and you may find the problem is the chip in the key.

Starting: car will not start; dash reads "starting


Hello, RW Betton,

Here is a few things to try then please read toward the bottom. Please read my whole page here of ideas for you.

Question? when it does disable it usually will say " starting disabled due to theft system remove key from ignition and wait 3 minutes'. Are you able to start car after the 3 minutes? or it wont period? My car does this a lot to but I think its cause you have to unlock the car, get in it, shut the doors and then start the car because mine does it when i open the doors.

Also some times if you have a chip in your key will do this as they ware out, and would have to try you back up key (if you have one) and if turns out to be your key, that has bad chip, dealer would have to replace that.

Finally, this is your other choice as well below, and you can click on that site and it should help you. Most the times this whole issue is triggered from the key itself into the ignition, that cause this.

If you have the GM pass lock system in that car, this is a site that will show you how to disable it:

ermanently-disable-gm-passlock-system.h
tml


However, if it were my car I would see what the dealer will charge to fix it first. It may just be a simple reprogramming is needed or a inched wire in the steering column. I would want the car to have an anti theft system working as it should.

I hope my free advice has helped you, and if you could please rate my help accordingly and some kind words too. I appreciate it, and keep me informed on progress. Here is also my direct link for all my services I offer to help you.

That is my personal page of all my areas of ads of my expertize. Mike

94 cadillac deville...car will not start or turn over because the security light blinks on and off. had a new key made at the dealer and performed the relearn procedure..I put the key in the RUN position...


As the prescribed method isn't working it would seem likely the antitheft system is broken and should be checked by a professional.

Electronics aren't bulletproof and at over 20 years old the ones fitted to your car are 20 years less robust and 20 years less sophisticated and easily damaged by such things as welding, battery charging, jump starting or even nearby lightning strikes. Such instances often do not cause obvious damage immediately but rather have a weakening effect so the final breakdown happens later, maybe years later.
