Chevrolet Trailblazer LS: My nephew is stuck at tthe beach

Customer Question

My nephew is stuck at tthe beach trying to get home . he lost his key and went to a dealer and had another made . it would not work . some idiot told him to knock out ignition and start it with a screw driver ! so they did . he says it will crank and run but only for a minute and dies . is there any way he can bypass securrity to get home and i can replace ignitio and reset security system so the dealer dont charge him and arm and leg to fix it ?

Hello,
The reason it hasnt been answered yet is because the way the security system is wired in, there is NO way to bypass it. I'm very sorry for the delay but a lot of guys dont like to give bad news because they fear a negative rating, but i hate to see you waiting like this. I'm a Veteran so i wanted to help my fellow Veteran even though its not good news. I really hope you understand.
