  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

This will take awhile, so you need to be patient. This will take around 45 minutes (sometimes if you are lucky 15 minutes).

1. Turn key on

2. Attempt to crank for 2 seconds

3. Let key go and leave the key in the run position till the anti-theft light goes out, approx 10 mins (hence the need to be patient) 

4. Once the light is off, turn key off

5. Repeat steps 1-4 two (2) more times for a total of 3 times

6. After turning the key off for the 3rd time it should start


Some people have reported that it may take more than three tries, so don't give up. However, three seems to be normal for most folks.
