I was just reading the feedback for the 2004 Grand Prix - is it the same on a 2006? The key was lost and we had to get a new one. The car will turn on but not start.

Your Pontiac has a Transponder Key which has to be Programmed

It is best to have Dealer or Shop connect a Scan Tool & Program, but you can Program the New Key ONLY if you have a working Key that will start the vehicle
IF NOT, GM Dealer or Shop with proper Scan Tool will need to Program
Some Mobile Locksmiths can Program also

30-Minute Relearn Procedure

With a master PASS-Key III key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
This procedure is not available on vehicles equipped with option code (Z49).
Observe the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT message on the driver information center (DIC), after approximately 10 minutes the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT message on the DIC will turn off.
Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds .
Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes .
With a master PASS-Key III key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
IMPORTANT: The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
