I had the same message come up on my 2011 Chevy 1500. The issue was we were using a key without the security chip in it to try to start the van. It was just a key to unlock the doors. When you use the wrong key initially in the ignition, it locks out the proper(Ignition)key as well. You have to wait about 20 mins before it resets & then use the proper key(ignition key) with the chip & you should be good to go. If you need an additional ignition key(With Chip) you have to get it from the Chevy dealer. It cost around $30.00.... Good luck. By the way, I couldn't tell the difference between the two keys by looking at them, they look the same. I took the keys to Home Depot & they were able to tell me which key had the security chip in it, but they can not make a copy, you have to go through the dealer.

Disconnect your battery for a few minutes. This should reset the engine computer and let you get going again.

Why is a oil can and wrench momentarily popping up on the dash of my 05 chevy express


I don't use synthetic oil unless the owners manual requires it. Just my opinion, not trying to argue. I've been changing my own oil and filter ever since my first car, now I'm 70.
Check for proper oil pressure and oil fill level.

2008 chevy express dome lights won't come on when doors are open but will come on with the switch on the dash


Dome light issues with Chevrolet Express van. Easy Fix
To the right of the headlight switch/knob, there is a square plastic base for the "dimmer" It has a post-like button in the center .. above the post is a switch - it doesn't look like one (it reads "Dome Off"). Press it in, and the interrior lights will come on when the doors open, etc. I just had my van serviced, and had to do this myself.

Chevy 350 express van 2000 runs great idles rough


If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?
