Stop stealing the car! =D Unfortunately, this is a common problem with late 90s Chevies. Your best bet is to call a dealership. They can get the car and reprogram it. Make sure that you save all receipts from this work, as this can be an ongoing problem and you only want to pay for it once. Best of luck!
