I had the same thing happen to my 2001 Grand Am. Do this.......just key the key, but don't turn it over. Your Security Light should be blinking. Let it blink for about 10 to 15 minutes, it should stay on after that. When it stays on, turn the key and it should start. I still have to do this once every 3 the 4 months, some sort of security problem that cost to much money to fix.

Well Your solution worked for me. Got a 2001 Grand Am SE. Decided it wasn't going to start. Put key in, let security light blink for 10 min and it stopped. Turn the key and started like nothing was wrong.

Thank You Very Much!

My Ford Superduty 6.0 Liter 2005 will not crank. HELP


You mean it won't start, cranking means the engine turns, you say is cranks fine. This is because you changed the battery and didn't reset the anti-theft imobillizer.

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

Changed the fuel pump on 2002 rendezvous and battery radio is locked and car won't start


Did you check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge before replacing fuel pump ? Did you test for spark ? Is there compression . Is the security light lit on the instrument cluster ? anti-theft system stops injectors from working if a problem is present. You changed the battery ? Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems

Cranks but won't start


No reset switch. Hook up a fuel pressure gauge an check pressure . Check electrical circuit , voltage drop testing . are the fuel injectors firing ? Anti-theft system light lit ? anti-theft system problems on some vehicles will disable fuel injectors .

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

2000 Jeep Grand cherokee Laredo wont start. Engine turn over . No noise from fuel pump with ignition on. Replaced fuel pump and filter.Turn ignition on- pump did not run.Jumped the fuel pump at the pump...


sounds alot the the pcm it controls the fuel pump and ign system but the anti theft would keep it from starting because the key has a transponder in it programmed for that vehicle and that would kill all ign if triggered
