Customer Question
How do I reset...

How do I reset the security setting

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?

2000 Bonneville SSEI

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Bonneville yourself? What have you tried so far?

In the past I read an article in the "Bonneville owners club" but I can't remember exactly what I did . I think I turned the key on

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

The car isn't locked or anything. The security light comes on more frequently when I start my car It goes off if I turn the ignition off and start it again. It is coming on at startup more frequently. If I don't turn it off (by restarting) it will eventually start driving strangely. i.e. back brakes coming on.

I attached all the information you need to reset the security system. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron
