Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
It's common for the anti-theft system to disable the starting on these. Try leaving the, ignition key on for 10 minutes until the lamp on the dash goes out, than try starting the enigne...this is a form of the "relearn" for the anti-theft, if it works the engine will fire over, if not you will need to have the car towed to the dealer for diagnosis and programing.
Hi, welcome back...has the problem continued after the 10 minute relearn?
PS. can you press ACCEPT if the above information back in April was helpful? Thanks,
It may...these anti-theft systems are poorly designed and had various problems like this...the good news is that when it does occur, leaving the ignition key on for 10 minutes seems to do the trick. Often it doesn't occur again for a very long time... I wouldn't bother taking it to the dealer until it's to the point where you have to relearn it constantly, otherwise there diagnostic equipment will not pick up the failure. Your welcome to post back here if you have any questions about this when (or if) the problem occurs again.
