Can anyone diagnose my Pontiac?
I know, I know, this isn't a car fixing website, it is a DEALS website. BUT since it seems so many folks had ideas for @thunderthighs yesterday, I thought you smart people might like another challenge...one that has stumped every mechanic, garage, and dealership in my area.
My 2004 Pontiac Grand Am GT has an issue with the security passkey system. For several years, my "security" dashboard light comes on at completely random times. In itself, this gives me no headache, it simply goes out when I turn the car off. However, about 2 or 3 times a year it does not go out when I turn the car off, and then the car will not start.
It shows no codes when hooked up to the diagnostic machine. One garage did give me a temporary fix to get the car started...turn the key on for 10 minutes until the light goes out, turn the key off, and the car will start.
