Temporary solution is to turn key to 'on' position and leave it for 10 minutes, this will reset the computer and the security light should go off...be ready for it to happen again at some random time in the future, though.

According to Alldata.com, which I looked up myselft (20 years repairing cars) is cycle the key on and off 7 times. It should clear the code and store it in history. The code can also be cleared by a mechanic with a professional quality scan totoll.

    I've had this same problem with my 04 Pontiac grand prix. Can you tell me how you fixed it? Is it a sensor or fuse? How can I actually fix it? Not looking for a temp fix. Thanks

Theft mode light


Has anyone changed the part of the ignition switch that reads the key value and sends it to the anti-theft module, it this part malfunctions it will lock you out, and you will be unable to start the car, they are a known fault for all GM lines with factory anti-theft systems, it is part of the ignition switch, but I believe that it alone can be replaced, call your local dealer and ask about the sensor for the VATS key in the ignition, they should know what the part is formally called.

Absolutely! If the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) "thinks" you are trying to steal the car, it is SUPPOSED to keep it from starting. The problem is that the PATS thinks you are a car theif when you are not.
Below is a table straight out of the service manual for your vehicle. Please note that the FIRST action that must be taken for any PATS system malfunction is to scan the computer system for fault codes.

2001 saturn sc2 will die after starting


The key is to locate the Bosch type relay.

It's a simply SPST 12V relay.

The alarm install like to hid it so it will prevent a car theft to by pass the relay.

Most likely it's on a female socket. The relay may be sitting off center,

THE KEY IS to find this black square relay.

2000 pontiac GranPrix has no spark, cranks all day long


If the after market alarm system isn't completely removed from the vehicle and the car restored back to where it was prior to the alarm, the alarm system will think someone is trying to steel the car and has shut down the signal from the PCM.
The alarm needs to completely removed.
Once the alarm has been removed, I would use a GM ignition key, you may need to tow the car to your local GM dealer to make a new ignition key and program the key to match the PCM, it's possible the vehicle ant-theft system has shut down the electrical because of the incorrect ignition key.
