Sounds like it is getting a faulty lock/unlock command from a defective door locking solenoid. Normally its the drivers side locking motor. Hope this helped.

    Same issue with our 2002 Aztek - will try to get more info as I have no experience with this. Locam GM dealer made it sound like a "mystery" problem that would be 2 to 5 hour fix.

My 2000 passat is in anti theft mode and won't start

Make sure that the battery is in a fully charged condition and reconnect, Positive post first and then the negative (This helps to avoid accidental short circuiting) Close all doors, bonnet/hood boot windows etc. Lock the vehicle with the key. Leave vehicle for at least 10 minutes without disturbing it. Unlock vehicle and start the engine. I have had to use this method on various makes of vehicle. It allows the system to reset. PLEASE NOTE the battery must be fully charged.

I replaced a battery in my 2001 pontiac montana n the lights started blinking as if the alarm was going off.i hit the unlock n lock button n the blinking stopped. i have power,lights n radio but van wont...

It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.

There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

No turnover

There may be problem with the VTD module reading the proper code. You will want to make sure that the little diode in the key is clean, (that's the thing with the little metal on it) if not then there is a problem with the vehicle thieft deterent system.Most times, a lock smith can come to the vehicle and check the VTD system for about $65. That is a lot less than the dealers get. It might just need an ignition lock cylinder. Sorry for the bad news, there are three wires that wear out in the cylinder and the pcm can not read the key's. If you have a second key try that and if that works it's your first key that went bad and you can get a new key's cut. If your key's has a number and letter stamped on it then you have a VTD system. Good luck

Wont start

May have tripped the alarm. Dont use the key fob. Use the actual key in the door lock. Try on passenger side of car as well.

Pontiac Aztek GT

Ours did the exact same thing. It eventually did the 'disco effect' where the head lights were flashing constantly and horn honking. It would only stop if we took the fuse for the Body Control Module out for 30 seconds.
Only that was a temporary fix. It finally got so bad that the car locked itself down and we had to take it in. The BCM had to be replaced (cost us $350) and it seems to do a lot better, but the radio is still locked but it might just have to be reset. Hope it helps!
