The problem is in the ignition cylinder lock.
The body control module (BCM) is what controls the theft deterrent system on the 2000 Pontiac Sunfire.
It can be reprogrammed, but is complex to do.

Here are some pictures for you.

SOURCE: Resseting alarm lockout in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire

turning left and stalling sounds like your power steering pressure switch is bad.as for other problem try unlocking drivers door using the key this should reset the factory alarm. also make sure you didn't miss a wire when reconnecting bat. look for 12gauge red wire near bat. this goes to computer if not connected car will crank but not start.

If you use the drivers outside door lock to unlock the vehicle it should disarm the vehicle. emmissionwiz is correct, you can't simply shut the factory alarm off.

SOURCE: 1996 Explorer anti-theft system won't disable

Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

First check your fuses and bulbs. If they check out OK, there is probably a faulty relay. If the car starts and runs normally, the alarm module is probably OK. A broken wire is possible, but not likely, unless an aftermarket radio or alarm has been installed. One other possibility is a faulty or stuck door jamb switch. If there is a burnt fuse, you will need to find the short that caused it to burn out. Look for corrosion in all of the non-working light bulb sockets.

Faulty alarm


your driver side door alarm switch may be stuck. use your key to lock and unlock the passenger door. this should turn the alarm and kill switch off. the red light on the dash should go off.
