Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you tell me what the car does not when you try starting it?

absolutely nothing!
Pontiac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Mater Technician replied 3 years ago
Thank you. Will the key still turn in the ignition?

Had to get car towed.The key turns physically, but nothing happens. No sound. No attempting to start. Seems the whole system was shutdown.
Pontiac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Mater Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks for getting back with me. I am sorry that you had to have it towed. It sounds like you have a failed ignition switch. It may be a battery also, but the ignition switch is very common on this car. If you have questions about what the shop tells you please let me know.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Not the battery, and not the ignition switch. It has to do with the theft deterrant system. Still can't get it to start. Thanks anyway.
Pontiac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Mater Technician replied 3 years ago
The theft deterrent system on this car only shuts down the fuel system so if that was the issue the engine would still crank. The only way that the theft deterrent would cause this would be if the body control module that controls this system has failed. You can try resetting the security system but most of the time that will not solve it if it will not start at all. Do anyof the other dash lights turn on too?
