What year model?

Was something done to cause this?

Do you get the same results from both keys?

Do you have access to a scan tool?

I could say try this or that and there is a good chance it will work, making all of it look and seem positive and hopeful. However, that would just give you false hope and get you nowhere. The honest answer is, there is not a lot you can do in this situation. You need a scan tool to see what codes are stored to see if the concern is the key or a part on the car like the transceiver. You can check the battery voltage because low voltage much below 12.6 volts can cause this. The best option is to tow it to a shop that has key programming capability or call a locksmith that may be able to come to you and do programming on site.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

We have already called to tow it to a shop. My family and I were stranded around 10pm last night at 23°. I've never used Just Answer.com but I was desperate for help and paid the money through PayPal thinking we would receive help last night when we really needed assistance. Sorry no disrespect but giving me some suggestions after 12pm the next day does not help me. Thank God for a Good Samaritin who took my family n I to a Motel last night.
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 month ago

I did respond last night less than an hour after your post was opened, then again today 12 minutes after you replied.Sorry, you were not pleased with my help. I was just responding because you did so 12 hours after I originally responded to you original post.
