I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So the 2000 Tahoe doesn't have a security system per say. It has a sensor in the ignition lock cylinder to sense if it has a key in it as you try to start, so it can't be hot wired. But other than that it doesn't have a real security system. But if the light is coming on then the sensor may be going bad.
But it cant be disabled tho.Sorry I wish it could.Let me know if you have any questionsThanks

Can the sensor be replaced
Expert:  Master Auto Tech. replied 1 year ago.
it can. The sensor is a dealer only thing. But it can be replaced. Are you wanting to replace it yourself or have someone do it?Let me know and I'll continue to help.Thanks
