When I was driving my 2000 Pontiac grand am all my lights was flicking then went dead and car shut off. It won’t start.

Check for a dead battery. If it is, jump start it or charge the battery. When you get it running, check for proper alternator voltage output. If battery is good, you might have a bad ignition switch.

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.”
