I just had this to happen to me - here's what you do - when it will not crank - turn your key over to ACC and let it stay on here for 15 minutes, the THEFT SYSTEM light will stop flashing. Turn your key back to OFF then turn it over as normal when starting and it will start right back up! Found it out from an auto store! One lady paid over $700 and then found this out!!!

Eliminating the system is harder than it sounds. The Passlock reciever located in the ignition lock cylinder are famous for giving this very problem.

If it's a factory alarm then you need to get it disabled by the dealer. if it's an installed alarm you need to unplug the brain/ module and your car should run

Your vehicle has whats called pass-lock II, it is an anti-theft setup. There is a procedure that you can do to reset the pass-lock system. Try these steps and see if it helps. Please let me know if it does or does not work and I will help you to further diagnose and repair the problem.

Step 1 - Attempt to start the vehicle. It will crank, but not run. The security light will be flashing on and off. Leave the key in the 'run' position for exactly 10 minutes, then the security light will stay solid or go off.
Step 2 - Turn the key to the 'off' position for 10 seconds. Attempt to start the vehicle. Some vehicles will run at this point, although many will require you repeat repeat Step 1 two more times. Make sure turn the key to the 'off' position for 10 seconds before each 10 minute cycle.
Step 3 - The vehicle is now ready to relearn the proper code. Turn the key 'off' for 10 seconds and then 'crank' the vehicle. It should be running now. The security light might stay on solid for several minutes afterwards, depending on your system.

Reset security code 2003 Chevy impaula


Instructions
    • 1 Attempt to start the car. If it does not start, or dies very quickly after it started, then leave the key in the ignition in the "ON" position and wait 10 minutes. Make sure the security light is flashing. After 10 minutes the security light will stop flashing and either turn off or stay on steadily. When it does, then turn the ignition off, wait 20 seconds and attempt to restart the car.
    • 2 Repeat this procedure three times in quick succession without removing the key from the ignition.
    • 3 Start the car following the third 10-minute waiting period. The car should start and stay on. If it stays running, then the codes have been relearned and the problem is solved. If the car still does not start then you may need to have all or part of the passlock system replaced

Pass lock system


There is a resistor either in your key, or your ignition switch on the steering column. A resistance value is sent to your BCM (body control module) - which is programmed to accept a certain value. If this resistance changes; because of corroded wires, a degraded or changed resistor, or changing your key lock cylinder - you've got to do the relearn procedure.
Step 1 - Attempt to start the vehicle. It will crank, but not run. The security light will be flashing on and off. Leave the key in the 'run' position for exactly 10 minutes, then the security light will stay solid or go off.
Step 2 - Turn the key to the 'off' position for 10 seconds. Attempt to start the vehicle. Some vehicles will run at this point, although many will require you repeat repeat Step 1 two more times. Make sure turn the key to the 'off' position for 10 seconds before each 10 minute cycle.
Step 3 - The vehicle is now ready to relearn the proper code. Turn the key 'off' for 10 seconds and then 'crank' the vehicle. It should be running now. The security light might stay on solid for several minutes afterwards, depending on your system.
Depending on the problem you are having this may help.

Reset security system


To review - the factory VATS security system will not let the engine crank or start if the wrong key is used or there is a problem with the system.
So if the engine was cranking the security system was not at fault.
You may have to get a used shop manual to get the testing procedures for a no start-stall problem.
