Don't waste your time with the relearn procedure. It won't work in your situation! You need to have the new keys programmed to the car using a scan tool. This can only be done at a GM dealer or a locksmith! The security light should NOT stay on once a new key is successfully programmed to the car. With your security system you MUST have a working key to program additional (new) keys to the car. In you're situation you're going to the dealer or a locksmith. HTH. -Jim

Ok, Up, what's the year, make, and model of your car? GM has used several computerized security systems over the past twenty years. This is a PASSKEY system. You're the one who's mistaken. The mythical "relearn procedure" will only work under very specific circumstances. This situation is not one of them! -Jim

I got a buddy that says he can reprogram the system with his scanner so I'll call him this week

Looks like that gizmo works on the VATS system. Not PASSKEY. It talks about the PASSKEY system and shows the transponder keys associated with the system. Common sense tells us that if you can use the relearn procedure in any situation, the security system would be useless. Anyone could steal a car, buy a lock cylinder with the transponder key and in 30 minutes or less program it to the stolen vehicle. Even with the older VATS system there is a relearn procedure. But again it only works under very specific circumstances! Perhaps the gizmo bypasses the PASSKEY system, I don't know. If it does there are probably measures in place, such as providing proof of ownership, etc. This would make it far too easy for crooks to steal cars. Think about it for a moment. Would you install a security system on your home then put a sign on your door with the pass code? I wouldn't. That'd be pretty silly! HTH. -Jim
