Unlocking Doors with REmote or Turning Key to ON, will DisArm, unless the Theft Light stays ON or is blinking.
Turn OFF Key
Close ALL Doors & Hood
Leave Vehicle Undisturbed for at least 15 minutes
Unlock Vehicle
Turn Key to ON & try starting
IF Vehicle does NOT start & Security Light still is ON or is blinking, then you need to try to Program the Key, which use of GM Dealer Scan Tool is needed
