My car will not crank/turn over. I tried my second key thinking maybe the resistor went bad, but it still wouldn't crank. I jumped the starter with the key in the "ON" position and it started but would only run for about 3 seconds.

HELP!

GM PASS LOCK RELEARN- Ignition to "run" position, try to start and let key return to "run" position
Approx ten minutes security light will go off
Turn key "off" and wait 5 seconds
Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 relearns.
Turn key off, then start it

I did what you suggested but the security light would not go out. Even after 35 minutes.

It was flashing and the service manual said that there was a problem with the system.

What can we do now.

P.S. I am more than willing to pay you on the 18th to help get my car back on the road.

Checked all fuses? Even under the hood? Check connectors to security module and PCM GM's are notorious for bad connections. Try a different key. Then it's a trip to the dealer for testing, and reprogramming.

I don't know where the security module is to check the connections.
