Question about 2000 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Theft System in my 2000 Pontiac Sunfire. I bought the car used in 2002. I am not sure if the theft system is after market or not but we are having problems starting the car and think it might be the theft system. But we dont know anything about it. To turn the car on you have to pull the turn signal in and turn the key. I dont know the name of it but if you have any idea please let me know.

The theft system came standard on your vehicle. And YES it is a terrible system that will keep you from starting your vehicle when it begins to fail. BAD NEWS, this system is hard to diagnose and can cost you alot of money to fix. The parts are all very expensive. GOOD NEWS, It is fairly inexpensive to bypass the system and eliminate it entirely. Forever. Here is a link that explains what is going on and how to fix it yourself. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Where is anti theft fuse


Technically, there is no fuse for that system. The anti-theft or security system is part of the body computer.

Alarm not chirping dash not working


The problem is in the ignition cylinder lock.
The body control module (BCM) is what controls the theft deterrent system on the 2000 Pontiac Sunfire.
It can be reprogrammed, but is complex to do.

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).

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.

How to remove or bypass the factory installed anti theft vehicle immobilizer.


in the 1996 sunfire GM uses an anti theft lock system. It can be triggered by all sorts of things. In order to relinquish this you must have a key to turn the ignition. These are not coded just plain cut keys. Once you attain this you put the key in and turn the ignition to the ACC position and wait ten minutes (theft lock light will turn off), turn off and take key out. You MUST do this 3 times and then the theft lock will be disarmed.
