Did he check the PCM fuse(s). If he didn't bother to disconnect the negative (-) battery cable before unplugging the PCM it's possible that the fuse blew. It's also possible that since he's fooled with the security system that's an issue as well. You may wind up being towed to the local GM dealer for the security system fix! HTH. -Jim

Yes, sounds like a bad electrical connection. Since he knows which harness to move to make it quit, he'll be able to find the bad connection. HTH. -Jim
