|What Does the B3935 Pontiac Code Mean?

When an ignition key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and the ignition is switched ON, the transponder embedded in the key is energized by the exciter coil surrounding the ignition lock cylinder. The transponder transmits a signal to the immobilizer control module. The immobilizer control module translates this signal to a serial data message which is sent to the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM then compares this value to a value stored in memory. If the value is correct, the BCM will send the prerelease password via the serial data circuit to the Engine Control Module (ECM) If the learned key code does not match or a transponder value is not received, the BCM will send the start disable password to the ECM.
