You didnt say what year the car was but i know on some of the G M cars the chip in the key loses communication with the antitheft system in the car. What you can try is turn the ignition on so the dash lights come on and leave it on for 10 minutes after the 10 minutes the will start to flash. then turn it off and try to start the car

Theft system light on in a 2004 pontiac sunfire car wont turn on


did you use a key without a chip in it as this will set the theft system,if so use a key that has the chip in it.if you used the right key then you can try turning the key to the on position and leave it for i think 3 minutes then turn it off for 5 seconds then on for 3 minutes again then off then back on for 3 minutes then off then the next time when you turn it on try to start it.

I need a pictorial diagram for starter replacement on a 1999 pontiac sunfire w/ 2.2 liter engine


Common misdiagnosis on GM vehicles is to think the starter is broken when acually the antitheft system has turned it off. Check for a light on the dash that says SECURITY when the car wont start. If you see it, then this is your problem, not the starter. Here is a link on the subject, and possible solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

How do you reset the theft system (for the car, not the radio) on a 1996 pontiac sunfire se. the battery went dead and the car has been sitting for a month now. the car will not start with the key. it will...


Your vehicle is equipped with the Passlock theft-deterrent system.
Passlock is a passive theft-deterrent systemT. he system is armed once the keyi s removed from the ignition. Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinderi s turned with a valid key. If a correct key is not used, fuel is disabled.

During normal operation, the THEFT SYSTEM light will go off after the engine is started. Ln the unlikely event that the engine stalls and the THEFT SYSTEM light flashes, wait until the light stopsf lashing before trying to restart the engine. Remember to release thkee y from the START position as soon as the engine starts. If after several tries the vehicle still does not start, the vehicle may need service. At this time, you may also want to check the fuses. See your Pontiac dealer for service.

If the THEFT SYSTEM light comes on while the engine is running, a problem has been detected and the system may need service. See your dealer for service. In an emergency, call the Pontiac Roadside Assistance Program at 1 -800-ROADSIDE or 1-800-762-3743.

This ans other details can find it in this link for 1996 Pontiac Sunfire - Owners Manual.

I hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

MM theft system has been activated on my 98 Pontiac Sunfire and now my car won't start. I've checked my trunk for a button and I've removed the alarm fuse and still my car won't start.


I have a 97 Malibu and when the theft system light kept coming on and would only start after letting the car sit for 10 minutes we ended up replacing the complete ignition where the key goes in. Then it was fine. It wasn't cheap either. Sorry, good luck.
