Having problems with your 1996 Pontiac Grand Am ?
1996 Pontiac Grand AM V6 Anti-Theft Activated
\015 I have a 1996 Pontiac Grand AM V6 and the Anti-Theft turned on when i switched out my IPC because the original one was broken (not useable). Now my car will start and run for 5 seconds then shut off and the Anti-Theft Telltale blinks. I do not have the Transponder Key for the car either. Is there a Module or another way to bypass this completely? Can I switch out the IPC, Lock Cylinder, Ignition Switch & Computer from another 96 Grand AM?\015
This is easy fix i had same thing happen when you start your car and it dies don't touch your key for no less than 11 min then turn it to off for no less than 30 sec the book says you might have to repeat this 4 times it worked the first time for me
Had similar problem that is a seemingly impossible to bypass (tried 1500 ohm resistor and still could not match the electrical current in the anti-thefy system) so standard pice wont work. But if u swich the whole lock cylinder from another grand am it should work becuase it has the same electrical current is flowing wich needs to be active at all times for the car not to shut off right away (there is no chip in the key at all)
