It's your security system. It's tripping. With the key OUT OF THE IGNITION disconnect the battery for about a half hour. That MAY reset it.


If you have the second key try that first. The chip in the key you are using may have died.

I don't have another key


Oh ok. Then try my ChickenSoup approach. It couldn't hurt. But if that doesn't work contact the local G.M. dealer. I'm almost sure its the chip in the key.
