In an attempt to put in a new stereo, the battery was disconnected. Now the truck won't turn over at all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Not leaking and complete recharge.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

The anti-theft system hasn't worked properly since we purchased and now it is going off every time we touch it.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Chevy?

1999

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

My husband is. He took off both terminals. He tried recharging battery. He tested fuses.

No, I did the 30 minute relearn and it won't start.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 2 months ago

What all have you done at this point?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
My husband took the battery out completely and put it on the charger. He replaced it and it wouldn't turn over. I did the steps on the 30 minute relearn that were sent to me through this site. I did it several times and nothing.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 month ago

What did the security light on the instrument cluster do when you did the relearn?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I did not pay attention to it, but I'm not familiar with which light it is.

I'm here. . Alarm is going off. It does as soon as you open the door.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
It was when he put it back in.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 month ago

Then there has to be an after market alarm on the truck. Do you have a remote for the alarm?

My signal out here is awful!
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No. It does have the security light. It was flashing when the alarm was going off,
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 month ago

Can you send me a pic of the light that is blinking?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Now it's flashing the battery. Before it was the word security.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 month ago

Please tell me in detail what you have done. It has been 1.5 hours and I have not heard from you so I do not know what you have done.

I can't get it to attach. I'm gonna call it quits for tonight. I'll go back out and take the picture in the comment. That worked last time.

Can you look under the dash for me and see if there is an after market alarm system on this truck? If there is it will be a small black box.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 month ago

The alarm box will usually be mounted close to the ignition switch.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I will, but it will have to be this afternoon. My 18yr old is playing basketball this morning.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 month ago

That will be fine. Also look and see if there is a siren/horn mounted under the hood separate from the factor horn.
