Hey how are you , I m hoping the anti theft triggered on ,cause battery weak, key remote etc , we use a Gm tech II scaner to reset and read fault codes
But let’s try a master reset for now ,since all was working prior , Make sure car battery has good 12 volts and holding then try below master resetMaster Reset1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter vehicle and Start it .You are very welcome :)
