Hello, There can be many causes for the security lock. It can be caused by having the system reset and not re-enabled (i.e. by a place like Jiffy Lube). Here is a good explanation of how the system works: http://www.thirdgen.org/vats_passkey_system You may need to contact the dealer to get the correct codes to restart the car, but hopefully, the link above should help. Best of luck CarGrrl

My 97 z28 has that problem. I measured the resistor in the key and no made a new resistor. I had to be put it in a connector under the steering wheel. It fires right up but the car will not start without it. Haven't had a problem since.
