The secutrity system has finaly took a crap and has sucessfully kept you out of your vehicle. There isnt an easy way to bypass it. You can try to clean the contacts on the key. If that doesnt work you have to take is to a gm dealership


before i even found out about the 10 min trick, a friend on mine that works on cars said the starter was shot becuz of loose connectors. i replaced the starter and now the car wont do anything but let the dash lights & radio work. since the old starter is gone how should i even try to reset the system if the car doesnt reconize the new starter
