Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer
is the Theft light staying on?
there are a few common problems. have you checked for codes?
you may have a problem in your paslock sensor which is part of the mechanical ignition switch
try cranking the engine for one second then leave the key on for 12 minutes and come back
the security light should go out. now try starting if it does not start turn the key off and try cranking again.
you may need to try this process up to 3 times.
if this does not work your problem is most likely with the paslock sensor and you need a special scan tool to get codes from this system
let me know what you find and if you need more help
there is are also problems with the ignition switch electrical side
remove the steering column cover and check to see that the pink wire is getting power to it
