Sometimes the new battery is not 100% charged. Put it on a charger or jump start the car, the alternator should then charge up the battery.

this is a aftermarket system, remove the fuse, look under the dash for a control box, follow the wires until you see a fused wire remove fuse, or if the bypass button is installed, this is a small push button under dash turn key on and push button 4 times,this sounds like someone already bypassed the starter disable, i would remove the rest of the alarm or just remove fuse.

SOURCE: I changed the battery in
1. Locate the valet switch for your system. It's a small black
push button, connected to a pair of wires that are gray and black.
There's no telling where the installer placed it, or if he even left it
connected. But if it's there and you find it:
2. Put your key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" or "run" position (not to "start").
3. While the key is on, press the valet switch once and release it, then press it again and hold it.
4. Press the "lock" button on the key fob.
5. Release the valet switch and turn the key off.
6. Test the key fob to see if it worked.

try locking your car with the key and unlocking it with the key, leave it for 30 second or so between the locking and unlocking , the car thinks some one has tampered with it

The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM. (Theft Deterrent Module) The TDM is what tells your computer that the correct key is being used and that it is "OK" to allow the vehicle to start and run. These 3 parts must be in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending important signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, (normally due to a failing/broken part) the car goes into antitheft mode. The car misinterperates this and thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is NOT getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. So basically, if that light is on, your system has some sort of failing part. This can start as an intermittent "no start", to your vehicle not running for days at a time, to the vehicle NEVER starting again. The problem is electrical and computer based, so don't count on an easy reset button, or the problem fixing itself. The hard part is isolating which part is the problem. You can spend a thousand dollars through a mechanic very easily. I have had great luck with bypassing the entire system. This way the problem will never return. It actually CAN'T ever return because it is eliminated. This can also be done yourself at a much cheaper cost. Read through this link very carefully. You'll find alot of information and pictures, along with ways to help you fix this.
