Why the anti-thief device is keeping my truck from starting?

I replaced my computer at 53,000 miles and it starts up OK now with an occasional issue with starting like it has crud in the line or something, but the resetting the key after a miss does require the 15 minute wait. Had to do it once since the computer was replaced, but the issue before was the anti-theft system would shut it down after starting every time requiring a tow truck to get it to the shop. $700 for the computer chip replacement.

2007 chevy colorado has problem starting

If the security light is on, the problem is with the Vehicle AntiTheft system. The key with the chip is not being read in the ignition cylinder. Therefore the computer doesn't allow it to be restarted for 10 minutes.

Truck want start sometimes, have to wait for about 10 mins then it will start. took it to the dealer they cant find anything wrong .can you help me? i have a 2006 chevy colorado.

Check to see if there is a light on the dash that says "security" or "antitheft" or a picture of a car with a lock thru it when this happens again. The fact that the truck starts after 10 minutes makes me think its a failing antitheft system disabling either your starter or fuel injectors. This is actually a VERY common GM problem.
