Take the car to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes, they will scan the vehicle at no charge to you. Write the codes down and respond back to this post and we can begin problem solving.
The codes will help to narrow the system down that is causing the problem.
You might want to make sure the battery cables are clean and tight. If one of the cables has an intermittant connection problem, it will cause the car to shut down.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

In most cases, either the sensor in the lock cylinder is faulty, or the chip in the key.
Have you tried a different key ?

I have done alot of them and they are exspensive.

Car want start but turns over


I had the same thing happen to my 2001 Grand Am. Do this.......just key the key, but don't turn it over. Your Security Light should be blinking. Let it blink for about 10 to 15 minutes, it should stay on after that. When it stays on, turn the key and it should start. I still have to do this once every 3 the 4 months, some sort of security problem that cost to much money to fix.
