Alright that why your car won't start your security system is keeping it from starting.When the security system is activated it shuts down your fuel injectors no no gas get's into your engine.Does your key less entry work with the remote's?Here's the problem though your going to have code's in your body control module and to get those code's you need a expensive scanner to read them.The cheaper more common scanner's only read your engine and transmission code's not your body control module code's.Let's do this follow that passlock relearn procedure i posted and see if it start's if it does then you can at least get it to a shop so they can read those code's.Let me know what you find.Also what model alero do you have?

Glad to hear your car started But I would like you to have your body control module scanned for code's and the ecm scanned for code's as well. You can't just go to a auto part's store there scan tool's aren't advanced enough to read body control module code's. There''s a good chance that this could happen again and next time your car might not start again at least you can drive your car some where now to have the code's read. Let me know what the code number's are. Better to be safe then sorry.
