There are 2 factory alarms on your car...VATS is the one with the resistor pellet in the key. 1) make sure the key you are using is clean at the pellet, any dirt will incease the resistor value. 2) if you have an after market alarm, make sure its door lock output is the same as the vettes (+ ground, - ground, or relay) 3) if your cars is all factory stuff, your VATS module may be bad [the least likely). Suggest a bypass kit...search 'VATS values' and match the resistance with the value of your key 1-15. If your key has a super warn pellet, you can match the resistance value on your key to a guy on ebay 1-15, buy the key on ebay for $15 and have anyone cut it..or go to a dealer and drop $50. BTW --your starter kill delay should only be 5-8 minutes.

The factory alarm is not to be tampered with as you can reset it but not disconnect it as it's part of the main fuel injection system. Do you have the right key? Just because it turns and cranks doesn't mean it has the right code. the security light off with the key on ut not cranking? If it stays on you do have a security problem. The system can be reset ( if the battery is good, and hot. Trun the key to crank and letgo the security light will but on or blinking . Leave the key on till the light goes out (around 15 minutes. Once it's out turn the key off then back on and the security light will be back on again. again wait till it goes out turn off then on again till the light goes out. Now turn the key off wait a few seconds trun it on and crank the engine. If it starts then it's reset. Sometimes I've had to do this more than three times to get it to reconize the key as the right one. rember a store cut key won't ever work as it doesnt have the (brain in it the the factory key does. Lets say your wrong, about the security system. The fuel pumps go bad like crazy and its thier season to fail. They fail quicker if you $5 the car alot. (runing on empty) Was the check engine light on as it ran the last time it was running? If so the codes need to be retieved and repaired. A scanner will find the security enabled on too.
