All fuses were checked when we replaced battery someone said that there is a security lock on the batteries and the car could have locked out...how do we reset the security?

Try this: With a master vehicle key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. Observe the security indicator. After approximately 10 minutes, the telltale will turn OFF. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes. Important: The vehicle learns the key transponder information on the ignition switch transition from OFF to RUN. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. Hope this works, otherwise you will have to go to a GM dealer and have the system reset with their equipment.

Whats a master key? We only have the key it came with..and there's an acc spot and then a line spot I had it on the acc bcoz I didnt wanna use the line and it drain the battery...and we were told that also but we'd have to have it towed since it won't start what do they usually charge to have it hooked up to their computers to be reset? Trying to weigh out options since alrdy spent close to $300 on new battery and starter! Ugghh sware this is the worst car ever

The master will have either a Pontiac or a G6 Logo on the key, you have to turn the key to on for the system to read it's programming, if you battery is new then you shouldn't have any problem completing the reset. The dealer in my area charges a 100 bucks for a reset, some are higher some are lower.
