2001 Pontiac Montana 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 149, 00 miles
Hi everyone, well I am having more trouble with this Montana again. Started out yesterday when my passenger side window wouldn't go up. So my brother was going to bypass the switch and put it up to at least keep the rain out. Well that didn't work and after he did it now the car won't start at all. When you try to start it the security light comes on. All accesories, etc. Work fine. I have tried the 10 minute reset of the theft system but it didn't work. The battery is fully charged. The dealer said I would have to bring it in to have it reset, but I am not even sure if this is it. We live a long way from the dealer and will have to pay $259 dollars in just towing charges. I just cant afford it. Does anyone have any ideas for me? I checked all the fuses and they are fine. I even pulled the fuse for the theft protection system and tried to start it that way but it didn't work. Any info you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Another thing I noticed is that the fuel ghauge reads empty and the low fuel light is on leading me to think this may be the security thing.
