2005 GTO Ignition/security problem

Asked by Sep 29, 2010 at 04:22 PM about the 2005 Pontiac GTO Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey folks. I have a 2005 GTO. Lately what has been happening is two things:
1) Turn the key & 'CLICK'.....does not turnover. All lights are on, etc. Just put a new Optima battery. Starter? maybe. But it only does this infrequently & when it does act up, if you keep turning the key, eventually it turns over & starts.
2) While driving the security light will come on (the light that has a pic of the car & pad lock intertwined). Car keeps running & if you hit a bump, it will either flicker or just go out.

Could both problems be related? And does anyone have any ideas what could be happening or what I should do?

Thanks for any help....I really appreciate it!

key fob possibly has something wrong with it?

The second problem leads me to think it's a problem with your key, like the bump could be causing a connection inside your key to break and then reconnect. The first problem would then fit because sometimes while you're turning your key it's hitting the connection and sometimes not.

it could be your ignition switch there is a new ignition switch old #92172018 new #92234035 like 38.00

I had a similar problem. Was a,wire behind the glove box rubbing due to vibrations. An electrical shop found and fixed for 108.00. :)
