This car is equipped with a P.A.T. (passive anti theft) system. There is no way for you to create another key that will work. The keys all have a small transponder chip in them.

The P.A.T. module must be accessed with the dealer scan tool to pair a new key with the car. It takes them about a 1/2 to do one. Might be a good idea to have them pair two keys at the same time as a backup.

Chevy Avalanche alarm wont stop

Factory or after market? If it is after market, Tear it out and repair the wires. Good ones seem to last 5 to 7 years. If factory. Have the codes read. Could be the key chip, receiver, bcm, ecm, or a bad wire.

The ECU is not reading the chip in the key. Replacing the ECU will not solve the problem. It is an input issue(signal to ECU) not an output issue ( signal from ECU). Perform an OBDII scan of stored fault history. Probably an ignition switch problem.

Ignition Key Replacement

disconnect the battery and connect it all up and leave battery off overnight. Put the key in the ignition but not turned on. Connect the battery in one bang, wait 15 minutes for the transponder chips in key and ignition lock to be paired by the ECM.

The shut down problem for 2002 cavaliers address a chipped key re-learn. however my keys are not chipped, any other solution? my cav has all the symptoms of the anit theft shut down

When the car was new it did have a chipped key. I don't know why they start sometimes without them, Faulty security? Anyway you will have to get a chipped key from the dealer or a hardware store. then do the relearn procedure. The procedure is , turn the ignition on for ten minutes, turn it off for five seconds, do this three times and after the third time the car should start. Make sure to keep the battery charged up because this will drain the battery. If it drains below 5 volts , you will have to start over.

It could be a chip computer problem. The new key is cut right, but the chip is not coded into the computer. Must go to dealer to have this procedure done.
