    so i switched my key ignition switch and tried to rest the anti theft system and it would start and as soon at the needle on the mph gauge did its normal thing it got to about 120 on the mph before shutting off and saying the anti theft alarm is active do i need to re-program my key or get a new one?

    My son replaced his battery in his 99 Pontiac Grand Am, and the security light came on and the car would not start. I called the one of the dealership and they told me I had to spend 65.00 to get the car re-calibrated to get the security light to go off and the car to start. Then I found this how-to. Here is what it said, “They called the 1-800- from the owners manual. It’s a flaw in the system and you can bypass costly repairs and towing by letting the car reread the key. Turn the key to the first stop. NOT ACCESSORIES! The light will start to blink off an on. The computer is reading the key. This process takes 15 to 30 minutes. When the light goes out or stay on it is done reading the key. Turn the key off and then start the engine.”
