The BCM will send a message to the driver information center (DIC) to display Starting Disabled Due To Theft System when the BCM has either received no key transponder value or the incorrect key transponder value.Typically this is caused from a Key that has lost Programming or low BatteryTry:Be sure Battery is fully chargedClose Hood, Trunk & all doorsLock vehicle with RemoteLeave vehicle "undisturbed" for apprx 15 minutesUnlock vehicle with another Factory RemoteTry startingIF the vehicle still does not respond or you do not have another Remote, then use of Dealer Scan Tool is needed to Scan Vehicle for Trouble Codes & Reprogram
apprx 1 hour labor
sorry...........IF no Remote, then use of Dealer Scan Tool will be needed, as your vehicle has a "Transponder" & also Alarm System that disables the engine & Fuel Pump.Either the Transponder is not being "rcognized" by the Body Control Module (BCM) or there is a issue with the seperate Alarm>You can try the above with Door Key, but this will NOT prove out the Transponder.There is no other customer way other than what I posted
Only if it has the ability to access the BCM & Security System to ProgramGM Scan Tool Candy Module is typically needed to Program on this yearTry the Key Lock & Unlock firstIF the Security Light flashes when you go to start after trying the above, it likely will be the Transponder
