Customer Question
2000 pontiac grand prix...

2000 pontiac grand prix just changed ignition switch reset security and car runs but security light is still on flashing what must i do

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

Yes, the system was reset 4 different times and the security light still flashing, but the car starts.

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

Yes I am repairing it myself. Checked all the codes and erased the existing codes, pulled the fuse for the computer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I thought about bypassing it because the only reason I changed the ignition switch was because it would not go into the lock position.

What codes are you getting?

It didn't give a code
Pontiac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 months ago

If light is flashing that means a code is stored, you just may not have a scantool capable of reading codes. If vehicle runs then doing relearn isn't going to help anything. You will need to have codes checked with a capable scantool and let me know what they are.
