    I have a 2000 Grand Am SE and the security light is coming on while I
    am driving, when I stop the car (for gas or what ever) the security
    light blinks and my car will not turn over. I have to wait about 10
    min for the security light to stop blinking and then my car starts
    right up. Does anyone know what would be causing this or how I can
    fix it? I don’t ever set the alarm system so could I turn it off or
    will this cause more problems?

    1. Turn ON the igniton, with the engine OFF.

    2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not

    3. Observe the SECURITY telltale, it will be flashing. After approximately
    10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF.

    4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.

    5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30
    minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the PASSlock Sensor Data Code
    and/or passwords, on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.

    IMPORTANT: The vehicle learns the PASSlock Sensor Data Code and/or password
    on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You MUST turn the
    ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

    6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the PASSlock Sensor Data
    Code and/or password.

    7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will clear
    themselves after 100 ignition cycles.
