Good Evening, your anti-theft is in the ignition. If you go to start the car, then leave the key in the run position when it does not start for about 11- 15mins. Once the security light goes off then turn it off and try starting it. If it does not work you might have to do it a couple more times. What happens is the system relearns your key. Hope that helps, Thanks, Joey
The anti-theft feature prevents the car from being started when one of
several anti-theft devices is faulty are have otherwise been activated.
The problem you descibe might be the ignition swith, which is known to
wear out quickly on those models. The system can be completly disabled
only when the car is running (meaning the teft deterent system is
inactive after the Passlock II system detects the proper key in the
ingition). A wire can be cut that would perminantly disable Passlock II,
meaning any key that opens the door (or a screwdriver) could start the
car. If the ignition swtich goes out or this wire is cut while the
engine is off (theft deterent system is active) then the car will have
to be towed back to the dealer to have the ignition system replaced and
I have called Chevy and asked how to fix this problem.
If you turn the key to the on position, right before it cranks when the
lights and radio turn on. Leave it there for ten minutes until the anti
theft light turns off. Then turn the key to the off position and then
try starting the car.
Rumour has it that it is a yellow wire to be
cut. Do more research, but D O N ' T cut it with the engine off. See
first paragraph above.
Hope this help (remember rated and comment this). Good luck.
On line there are instructions for cutting the anti-theft wire. Very easy to do, but you have to leave car run while you do it. You have to pop radio out and it is a yellow wire behind it. I cut 3 different yellow wires and re-taped them until I found it. Anti-theft light will always stay and never shut off. I did this 4 months ago, and so happy that I did. Very easy fix.
the ignition switch in dash may have in theft mode. after turning on key not to start does security light flash or stay on? if so hook battery charger on car, then turn key on for roughly 30 min till security light goes out. that resets theft mode.
Hey mine did the same let it sit with the doors closed and key out for 15 minutes or so and the light of anti-theft should turn off on its own or if that dont work try unhooking your battery no problem
