Hello , my name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for choosing Please tell me all the problem as my answers are based on the information you provide.

There is no reset if the lock cylinder does not recognize the keys.

A new lock cylinder with the right resistance value must be installed or the system must be bypassed.

The message on the instrument panel says starter disabled, wait three minutes. Can the system be bypassed? Would someone trying to break in the car cause this? The car didnt recognize the keys after being parked in a grocery store parking lot at 1am.

I had the same question on a Chevy Monte Carlo today. The bypass is the best way to deal with this. CLICK HERE for the bypass info.
