Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have tried everything that we could find
on the internet to alleviate the issue. New
feul pump and filter and wire harness. New
feul pump contactor/fuse. And new
ignition. Now don't have security light
on,still won't start. Now the service engine
soon light on. And low feul light on,but has
plenty of gas. Getting frustrated!!!

Is there any way you can get the CEL code diagnosed? That code or codes may give you the answer.

Is the CEL codes anything that could be diagnosed by oriellys or autozone? Or would I need to take it to a mechanic?

Yes. They can scan and can tell you what the code means. I hope it's an easy fix.

AutoZone, O`Reillys, Advanced Auto. Any one of them.

I hope that would be an easy fix to. And thanks for your help. Been banging my head against the wall. Getting the codes diagnosed will be my next step. Will update on progress.

Right away i can tell you that you will need to change the passlock sensor. i have worked on many pontiac's with these issues and everytime its the passlock sensor malfunctioning. they do not cost very much. only problem is you need to take it in to a garage to have it installed and will run you 45.00 only takes 20 minutes

The new ignition came with a new sensor on it. Is there something i have to do to get it to recognize the new sensor on the ignition?

I've had the body control module fail and cause issues as well. Test both.
