The antitheft icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

2003 gmc envoy starts up then runs like. then dies key stuck in ignition and have to let it sit for awhile then starts


This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

My 2002 gmc envoy starts with remote but will not crank with keys


The remote start bypasses the ignition portion of the antitheft security system to allow you to remotely start the truck. But the system still needs the signal from the key to allow the vehicle to remain running and drive. I would assume the ignition is bad or needs to be trained to the system if it was replaced.

Car alarm goes off when I use the key to open doors or start engine on my 2006 GMC Envoy. Problem started when I installed new battery.


Not familiar with the envoy, but most all GMC trucks have a alarm reset button under the dash by the steering column to reset after battery problems. Why did you change the battery? It may also be your starter has shorted out which will set off the alarm. Good Luck

Need to know how to reset security fuel shut off


If the security light is on, its due to a failure in the system. The vehicle is going into antitheft mode and turning off the fuel injectors. Unfortunately this can be a more costly fix than desired and almost all GM vehicles are effected by it. This link explains how this system works and offers some hints and cheaper solutions to fix this yourself.
