onley way is to unhook battery have it towed to your chevy dealer & have them reset it,it has to be reprogramed via their computer,not something you can do at home.


To reset your security system i would try. putting the key to on position don't start it. wait 10 min and the light should go out. i had a pontiac with similar problems.let me know if it works
