General Motors PASSLOCK® anti-deterrent features in a 99 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4L
So, once again GM has done it. They invented something that failed and yet again they don't have a solution. This feature should not be added to any car, even if someone steals the car, the odds of this system to stop working are zero to none. Once WE THE OWNERS need to replace an ignition cylinder or an ECM, then the system fails for us. And the Dealership has NO CLUE how to fix it other than the helpful tip to crack the ECM open and replace the "memory chip". We all know that the memory chip is integrated and soldered on these years models. There is a reason why I love FORD!

GM passlock problem
2001 Impala Base 114,xxx miles.
Runs & drives perfect, except....
GM replaced BCM computer 9-09. Accomplished nothing.
I replaced ignition switch w/NAPA part 10-09-09. Worked great for 2 weeks.
Then started having the same ole trouble.
I replaced ignition key tumbler switch w/passlock sensor w/NAPA part 10-25-09.
No problems until this week 1-13-10.
Still doing the same exact thing it was doing before I replaced anything.
Hasn't started any day this week. 10 minute wait, etc. will not work. Starts when it wants to.
Anyone have any ideas on how to properly repair this chronic problem?
----NOTE----the problem is fixed.
Cleaned the contacts on the BCM computer fuse.
That's all it took. If your car is exhibiting symptoms exactly like mine did, I'd try that 1st.

Robo Tech's Cousin GM Passlock Bypass
Robo Tech's Cousin GM Passlock Bypass
Amazon Printed Books
Amazon Kindle Edition
Automotive Robo Tech was called to a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am, with a 3.8 liter engine. The tech said that as he was driving, the "SECURITY" light came on. There did not seem to be any effect on driving. After the road test, he re-started the car without any problems, and the security light was not on. Later on, he started the car again, it ran for a couple of seconds, and then stopped, with the SECURITY light flashing. The car then would not re-start anymore, and the SECURITY light remained on.
The information database said regarding the security Passlock, after attempting to re-start the engine, if the SECURITY light flashes or stays on, wait ten minutes with the key in ON until the light goes off. Then, turn the ignition to the OFF position before attempting to start the engine again.
This information worked, and the vehicle started. Unfortunately, a few weeks later, the tech said he had to go through the same procedure to get the customer's car started. At this time, the customer said he wanted the Passlock bypassed, and not repaired.
Well, I am Robo Tech and don't really get involved with Jerry rigging automobiles. It is beneath my intellect! So, I decided to call in my cousin, Roby Martin, an expert at nothing, axcept cutting wires.

Pontiac Grand Am turn signal fix / repair
Replacement of faulty flasher switch corrected my turn signal problems. Turn signal would work correctly at times, and incorrectly at other times. This drove me crazy and was extremely hazardous when driving, no one could help me correct the problem. I recommend purchasing a new flasher at a reputable auto parts store. In the demonstration I used one from a salvage yard.
