THIS HOW YOU DO IT . 1ST PUT KEY IN SWITCH 2ND TURN TO ACC LET IT STAY ON OF 11 MINS. TURN IT OFF AND BACK ON TO ACC FOR 11 MINS. TURN IT OFF AND BACK ON TO ACC FOR 11 MINS. IT TAKES ABOUT 33 MINS TO COMPLETE P.S. DO NOT TURN THE CAR ON ALL THE WAY JUST TO THE ACC WHEN TRYING TO RESET . AFTER THE 33 MINS IT'S OK TO START. YOU JUST RESET THE SECURITY SYSTEM...........

This process works...just did it on an 02 sunfire...same car different skin. The only difference on my try was I put the key on "on" instead of acc. ...but it worked
