I went to start the car this morning and nothing. Hit the key, all dash lights came on like normal and when I turned the key further to start, I got nothing, not even a click. One thing I did notice and I’m not sure if it normally says it, but my message center display read check Stabil Trak.

Here’s the things I’ve checked:
Ignition fuse, relay and battery connections.
I threw a jump box on just for grins and no change. After messing around for an hour or so I did manage to get the car to start twice but it shut itself off almost immediately.

Do you
have the same problem?

When you crank the engine over does the security light flash? If so, you need to reset the system, please follow this guide and the instructions below.

10-Minute Immobilizer Relearn

This 10-minute relearn procedure will relearn the prerelease password and the challenge/response data between the theft deterrent module (TDM) and the engine control module (ECM).

1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle in the pass-thru arrangement.
2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
3. Ensure that all power consuming devices are turned OFF on the vehicle.
4. On the Techline Terminal, select Service Programming System and follow the Techline Terminal on-screen instructions, using the Pass-Thru method. Ensure the correct programming selection is chosen based on component being replaced or programmed. For this procedure, go to the V.T.D. Vehicle Theft Deterrent Learn menu and choose the Vehicle Theft Deterrent Learn, ECM, or PK3 Replaced selection.
5. At this point the scan tool must remain connected for the duration of the 10-minute relearn procedure.
