Need *way* more information... I would call the manufacturer and ask for help. You generally can pull the fuse or power cable and it should start. I have a Clifford system in my suburban and can just unhook the power line and it will start like it does not exist. I would also call the manufacturer you may have a bad remote or "black box".
good luck, mark

I'm not sure if it is the same problem, but recently when I installed mine in my Alero I had to cut passlock wire. Security code was then set. Remedy was to leave the key in ON position for approx 10 min, then turn off, then it would start. This resets the security code in that particular car. . Actually found that in the owners manual. Disconnecting battery cables didn't help. Try it, It's worth a shot.
good luck

Just as a reference as I do not know your system but check this link. Look at pages 18 and 20-23. I am not sure what security system GM used that year, I know in my wife's 92 Pontiac it has the Passlock system, and the vehicle would start but it set off the alarm when it was armed. I had to connect another wire from the unit to disarm while starting. Good Luck

I'm thinking this is a large reason why pro shops should be doing installs on newer vehicles :) if you're not familiar with the security system its pitfalls and the potential vehicle damage that can occur when testing/probing wires in a computer controlled vehicle, spend the few bucks it costs to have it professionally installed and you'll have a lifetime of good use out of it....
new vehicles have SOOOO many tricks and pitfalls with remote starts now, you'd be amazed...second and third ignitions, immobilizers, factory alarms, body control modules, multiplex circuits, etc...I know I'd be worried if I wasn't an installer!!

Rick,
Your remote starter is "hotwiring" your truck, and the BCM (body control module) is preventing someone from stealing your truck. On the newer trucks you need to reprogram the BCM to allow for these little things to work.

rick.
sounds like you didn't know there is passlockII in this vehicle, and it has gone into lockup mode. put the key in the run position, and leave it alone for 30 mins...then pull the battery cable for 30 mins.
before connecting the battery back up, make sure you've not made any errors in trying to bypass the security system improperly....I'm guessing you didn't even know it had passlockII.
all should be well again....just DONT REMOTE START IT until you properly bypass the passlock system, or you'll be right back in the same boat. if you want specific instructions and part numbers to do it, email me...
