it could be anything from a clogged fuel filter to a blocked fuel pump, or losing spark in the distributor cap. if your Pontiac has the PASSLOCK security system in it. turn ignition to on position... but do not start... for (10) ten full min. then turn key OFF for (10) ten more FULL mins. then try to start your car. if this works... REPLACE BATTERY IN KEYFOB (keyless entry keychain device) It may sound crazy but it will work.
i have a 2001 pontiac sunfire antitheft problem will not start anttheft light flashs on dash i can turn motor over buy jump starter but will not start
when it is worm you got to keep the throttle down to start
it could have a bad air filter or the fuel is clogged some where. or the batt could be going bad.
Perhaps a badly clogged fuel filter?
I have the same problem with my 2004 Sunfire. Leave the ignition on for 10 minutes. Just let it sit for 10 minutes. No shorter than that time. And Should start.
The starter solenoid, or ignition switch is bad, and either one needs to be replaced.
I HAD THIS PROBLEM NOT TO LONG AGO. I HAD THE BATTERY REPLACED. NO PROBLEMS SINCE.
You could have a fuel pressure problem, lack of spark, malfunctioning computer, or internal engine damage.
We are having the same problem with my daughters 1999 sunfire, it turns over runs 2 seconds , it appears to be anti theft device ,if you wait ten minutes and try it again it will start,but not sure on how to disable the device , no help as yet,but after 10 minutes it re-sets itself and will start, if that is your problem .
There is no fuel reset button on this car. Describe the problem your having. I assume it cranks, but doesn't start? BClear.
replace your starter assembly
My car won't. Start no power to the fuel pump because of the antitheft
