I have a 2007 chevy Impala. There is a symbol that pops up whenever I try to start the car. Ithe symbol looks likes a car with a lock on it. The car won't start but it does try to start. I read something that says it may be something with the cars security system. I really need to know what that means. I just spent 6000.00 on it yesterday.

Do you
have the same problem?

As I stated, do you have another key? It is a security issue and most common is the key wearing out

There is not another key. I was only given on key and one key fob. What do you suggest I do? What exactly does that symbol mean?

It is a security issue. It does not see the password and will not let it run

There is no keypad to input any passwords. It does on like a keypad use to be there. How would this problem be corrected?

Most likely will need a new ingnition swithc/tumbler assembly and the security system would have to be re set.

I reccomend dealer as they will be the ones you must secure the parts and they are the ones who will unlock the security.
