Leave the key in the ignition and in the run position for 20 minutes, this should relearn the antitheft system. If that doesn't work there are bigger problems.

My 2006 Pontiac grand Prix cranks but no start


If it cranks good but won't start, check the basics. Have a helper it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.
I don't know liter size of engine? Sometimes checking spark may be a little more involved if no spark plug wires.
When checking fuel pressure, if no Schrader valve on the fuel rail, then you tie into the supply line to check fuel pressure.
Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

Check if equipped for anti theft system. Usually the anti theft will allow for initial spark and then kill the fuel injectors!
Disconnect the battery and have it recharged and tested, if it fails the test replace it. Use the key and manually lock and unlock the drivers door if the alarm is still set, There is a switch attached to the door lock that disables the anti theft. If the driver's side is defective switch you have to do this from the passenger door.

Hope this helps?

theft deterrent fuel disabled signal received
this is probley the code you wold get.
you can trun the key on your car for 10 to 20 min.s do not try to start it. then trun it off then try to start it and see if that fixes it.
as far as the abs it has to do with the brakes.

Tell the guy to call the dealer and ask them how to override the anti theft system or reset it. when you disconnect the battery and lose power it kicks on the anti theft device and it won't get fire.

Pass Lock sensor is preventing the car from starting. You need to override it. I used a remote start module. Having this installed bypasses the pass lock sensor.
