lets try this first if you have not already

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )

2- Hold cables Together for 20 secs ,then let go, u can use an extension wire if they dont reach

3- Wait 10 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You

it is still the same alram "starting disable remove the key"
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

the alarm is triggered on , that is why it is not starting , most likely it lost syn with the key, or the key chip went bad ,

but there is other sensors and parts could be involved ,so scanning the theft module is a must ,you will need a gm scanner or equivalent , the auto zone scanner want do since it can only read engine fault code and here we need body modules codes and the one they have can not communicate with these modules

at this time we need the anti theft module scanned and retrieved fault codes , can you do that and post the m back here

Please let me know

Thank You
