I have a 04 gmc envoy xuv unknown driver message no security light will not start battery was bad got new one tryed passlock reset stills say unknown driver no start

It's a short in the instrument cluster.
I had the same problem with my 2004 XUV.
It started in early December of 2007.
Intermittent manifestations, than more persistent.
Took it to the GMC Dealer --
Of course, the Truck wouldn't do it's tricks for the Tech.
They replaced the ignition switch and sent me home.
It got progressively worse.
I waited until I was sure it would do it for the tech.
Took it back in to GMC Dealer--
It's a short in the instrument cluster.
They needed to replace the entire cluster.
I bought an extended warranty when I bought the truck.
The warranty is still in effect --
So I only had to pay the $100 deductible.
No Idea what it might cost otherwise.

My 2002 envoy want start it says unknown driver what do i do

Do you have a keyless remote on your ignition key? Or have you just replaced a key? If you haven't replaced a key, does your remote still work on your key? If not the battery in it is dead. If it's like mine, it's a CR2032 battery; they're about the size of a quarter. It says "unknown driver" because it has a factory alarm and your key is the on/off switch (either the little chip or in the remote).

Unknown driver

You have a failed key sensor or anti personality module. You will need the dealer to scan the system to see exactly what is causing this error message.

Unknown Driver on my 2004 chevy Tahoe

When your vehicle says : unknown driver, instead of Driver 1 or driver 2, you have had your battery totally dead. so dead that all the programming was lost, the part about not staying started, or not going into gear is a bit baffling, unless your alternator is the real problem, and the battery has just enough charge to barely start your truck, and may need to be fully charged first and stay running . You will need to do remote and seat reprogramming, when you get this figured out

Unknown indicator light on my dash

If it looks like this:
