If you can't afford to take the car to a mechanic. Your could explain the situation at the local Chevy dealer parts department. They would probably be able to tell you what's wrong. If it's not something easy to fix, you might try calling a local technical school in your area and see if they let students repair the problem under teacher supervision for free or a very low rate.

The battery in the key is dead and the chip is not connecting to your computer take the key to a parts store or dealer and have the battery replaced
