Hi, I'm Cam. May I ask your first name? I am working to get you a fast accurate answer. About your vehicle, When it will not start, does the security light flash?

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

no it doesnt want to start

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

no lights are flashing

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

What do you think of the theft system? Can that cause my car not to start?

GM Tech (Cam) :

Yes, the theft will stop it from flashing. Try this to relearn it.

GM Tech (Cam) :

The relearn for this theft system is easy to follow and takes about 15 mins. Start by turning your radio and heater off. Next try to start the car. It may not start or even turn over, but that is fine. Release the key from the crank position back to the run position and wait 12 mins for the security light to turn off. Then turn the car off for 1 min. After this time, try to start the car.

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

ok, will this keep happening?

GM Tech (Cam) :

Yes, but this will give us an idea if this is it or not.

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

ok, I wrote all of this down. my car is not with me

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

I just took it to two shops and they say nothin is wrong

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

everything is checkin out fine

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :

but that theft system light has been coming on latley

GM Tech (Cam) :

Ok, try this and see. If it works for than once then we can work on the solution, either replace the passlock sensor whcih is the ignition cylinder or bypass it.

GM Tech (Cam) :

You can reply at any time for follow up information regarding this issue, even after you accept my answer and I will reply.

JACUSTOMER-s4h1o4e6- :
