HI,Ok, this sounds like a security/immobilizer issue. If the theft system disabled or anti theft/security light is staying on, then we need to do the learn procedure, and I will need to know if yours is ignition key or push button start. If the light is blinking, there is a hard fault and the shop needs a Tech2 scan tool to diagnose the fault

It's a push button start.
Expert:  Eric replied 6 months ago.
Hi,Ok, this is the learn procedure that needs to be done: 1. Press the START button.2. Observe the Security indicator. After approximately 10 minutes the indicator will turn off.3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes. Important: The vehicle learns the password ***** the transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.5. Start the vehicle. The module being programmed has now learned the RCDLR password. If it still doesnt start, then there is a failure in the immobilizer circuit - faulty antitheft control module, antenna ring or push button start switch and a Tech2 scan tool is needed to diagnose which has failed Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit.
