security light came on now want start... please help


Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 05:15 PM about the Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: General


3 Answers


I hope that you have 2 keys because you will need a good key to program a new one. Does it start and cut off after a couple seconds or does it just crank without starting? If you are feeling lucky and you want to do a "Hail Mary" pass (as in football) ... disconnect the + terminal from the battery for about 30 seconds ... then reconnect it and try again. I don't know if that unit has a small battery in it ... the cover should come off the key but I suspect even if it does ... once most Cmos battery's die ,,, the program goes with it

The lights come on but it will not start.


Im going to try the hail marry. hopefully I want be walking for goodf
