CAR WON'T START! I have an '05 grand prix, that I just put $1,800 into. I have tried everything to be found via internet unless I am missing something, only thing I have not tried is cutting yellow wire and doing the bypass thing.
1 week ago I got stranded 45 miles away from home. Put the key in and got the message "service theft system" started reading online some possibilities disconnecting the battery for 16 hrs made that go away. Did the 30-45 min turn key thing also. Now I turn the key does nothing. If I put the key and turn to on leave it for 15 mins and the off then to on again the fuel pump will kick on but then when I go start it clicks 1 time thats it. What do I do?

I have brand new battery and cables, hence part of the $1800 I spent 4 weeks ago. Then the problem was car would just die while driving. Took it to GM. They replaced ECM, accelerator pedal and that cost me $1200, before that not knowing what was wrong I put over $600 in it trying the process of illumination. I can't afford dealership or a shop this time. Sorry for the dragged out blah blah blah. I am just at a loss
Thank you so much for any help or inexpensive suggestions u may have

Yes it did, double triple check connections and wires before you swipe that card to buy parts. So so glad I did.
Again thank you
