We had this problem. We had two keys and found that only one of the keys caused this problem. You need to purchase a new key at a Chevrolet dealership. Cost about $30.00.

Key needs programed

Hello, OK if you have a Black working key and you want to program an additional key start the car, shut it off immediately remove key insert new key and start car. new key is now programmed. If you don't have a key then this is what needs to be done: turn on ignition engine off, the security tell tale should be on. Wait 10 minutes, the security should be off. turn key off. Repeat the preceding steps two more times (total of 30 minutes) WAIT AT LEAST 10 SECONDS between each time. On the last step be sure to turn ignition off (10sec) before you start car.

Is there a quick fix to get me home

Move the key in and out of the lock cylinder over and over to clean the contacts. Then wait the three minutes. Don't try to start it before the three min is up or the three min. timer will start over.
