Your theftlock system is in theft mode. Try shutting all doors, and unlock drivers door and get in and start. If this doesn't work, try turning key all the way forward but not starting engine. After 5mins the symbol should go out as the system resets. If this doesn't work your system may need further attention.

Why wont my vehicle start when there is a lock symbol on the dash?


I had this same problem with my 2004 gmc envoy. Mine was a key problem. I had a 2001 impala that had identical keys that contain a chip that is read by the ignition switch. Both of my keys were near each other on the keyring and when the impala key was to close to the ignition the truck would not start and the light came on that looks like a lock. I took the impala key off the keychain and never had another problem.

06 trailblazer trouble with anti theft system, I think, starts right up then other times the anti theft light comes on and it won't start. can try it 2-4 hours later and it starts right up????


The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN -
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..

I have a spanner symbol on my 407. what does this mean??


You need to carry out the periodical car service due (e.g. engine oil & filter, air filter, fuel filter, cabin air filter). The "service" spanner symbol "reset" button is placed on the lower right corner of the dashboard. See picture below:

tdisline_303.jpg
Then you should reset the "service" spanner symbol by pressing on the "reset" button on dashboard, when ignition key is in OFF position. Hold the button pressed and turn ignition key in ON position. Hold the button pressed and see on the dashboard successive numbers will appear: "10", "9", "8", ... , "1", "0". Then release the button and switch OFF the ignition key. The "service" spanner symbol followed by "20000 km" (or "30000 km" depending of the engine type), will appear for few seconds after turning ignition key in ON position, and will dissapear after engine starting. The car service due was reseted.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

How do i clear the change engine oil soon message. It's a 2007 silverado.


The "Change Oil" message displayed on your Chevrolet Silverado's gauge cluster is part of the Oil Life Monitoring System, standard on many GM (General Motors) vehicles. The message appears when it's time for an oil-change; the interval is based on your driving habits (for example, it may appear more frequently if you engage in a lot of stop-and-go traffic). Once you change your Chevy's oil, the message will not disappear; the system must be reset. The process is a bit different between Chevy Silverado models.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
    2007 to 2010 Chevrolet Silverado
  1. Step 1 Insert your key and turn the ignition to position "C" (Run/On) without starting the engine.
  2. Step 2 Press the second button from the top on your information center (next to the steering column, car symbol) until "Oil Life" displays on your odometer cluster.
  3. Step 3 Press and hold the "Reset" button on your information center (check mark symbol) until the "Oil Life" display changes to 100 percent.
  4. Step 4 Turn your ignition to position "A" (Lock/Off).
  5. 2002 to 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
  6. Step 1 Insert your key into the ignition, and turn it to position "A" (Run/On) without cranking the engine.
  7. Step 2 Depress the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The "Change Oil" message will begin to flash.
  8. Step 3 Turn the ignition to position "A" (Lock/Off) once the light stops flashing (about 10 seconds).
