This is my very first post on here as a new member. The past few days have been heck and I am desperately seeking help. I'm a backyard mechanic and usually do my own work, which occurs only on pre-90's trucks.
My fiance and I have a 2000 Chevy Camaro, v6, 3.8 Series. Was running pretty good until Friday. For all who have become familiar with this, GM and a few other makes decided it'd be genius to install this type of Anti-Theft Deterrent crap in the vehicles with a PassKey and everything. As of this past Friday, drove the car around on our daily stuff, cashing check and getting something to eat, then went to get gas to go home. Went to start car and...nothing. Security light started flashing. We waited a few mintues because it had done this previously maybe once or twice and would start back up. This time, it didnt. Over the past few days, I have literally tried EVERYTHING, meaning every single reset test that others have put on the internet who suffered through this same thing. Things I've tried with NO LUCK!
1. Tried getting a straight jump.
2. Letting it sit for awhile.
3. Turning the key forward right before it starts, letting it sit for 10 minutes once, another time 20-30 minutes yatta yatta yatta, nothing.
4. Even tried jumping it off from the starter.
So as of right now, I have been locked out of my own car for about 3 days. The starter, battery and all that are practically new in her. What it does is when you go to start the car, all the lights and panel work properly, but doesn't even crank. The security light just keeps flashing. Even today, the locks on the doors kept engaging and disengaging when it's never done that before. It would cost me $45 just to get another key, but heck, I don't even know if that's the actual problem because I've read about the resistor chip being "worn down". If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate any help!
