Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
GM vehicles equipped with the PASS-KEY or VATS anti-theft system usually require the system be reset whenever the battery is drained or replaced. Follow this procedure.

Step 1 – Attempt to start the vehicle. It will crank, but not run. The security light will be flashing on and off. Leave the key in the run/on position for exactly 10 minutes, then the security light will stay solid or go off.

Step 2 – Turn the key to the ‘off’ position for 10 seconds. Attempt to start the vehicle. Some vehicles will run at this point, although many will require you repeat repeat Step 1 two more times. Make sure turn the key to the ‘off’ position for 10 seconds before each 10 minute cycle.

Step 3 – The vehicle is now ready to relearn the proper code. Turn the key ‘off’ for 10 seconds and then ‘crank’ the vehicle. It should be running now. The security light might stay on solid for several minutes afterwards, depending on your system.

If this procedure does not work, then the vehicle along with all keys, may have to be towed to a Chevy dealership for reprogramming.

When Your Dashboard Lights Flicker and Your Car Won`t Start. If the car won`t start at all and the dashboard lights are flickering, it`s likely that the battery does not have enough charge to crank over the vehicle. In this scenario, you`ll likely need to replace the failed battery.
If the electrical relays malfunction internally, they can cause the hazard lights to act up. The emergency lights are wired through the turn signal and flasher relays. These are usually located in the fuse panel found in the engine bay, in some cases one relay controls both functions.
The lights staying on after the car has been shut off suggests you may have a corrosion issue in one of the sockets or potentially a shorted out turn signal switch assembly, which is known to cause this to happen on many cars.
Hazard lights and turn signals use the same bulb, so it is not the bulb, the lamp, or the cables to them. Turn signals only work when the ignition is on; hazard lights work whether the ignition is on or not. The two systems have separate power supplies, so they have separate fuses. You may have a blown fuse.
If you notice any flickering, be sure to check your battery before you end up stranded. Similar to dimming headlights, these flickering lights are a sure indication of a failing car battery.
Bad bulbs or fuses

If the car battery isn`t the reason for your flickering car lights, it may be a bad light bulb or a bad fuse. Bulbs are an easy and quick fix and present an opportunity to upgrade to new energy-efficient LED bulbs.

Yes! Hazard lights can drain the battery of your car. Any electrical device in your vehicle can become a drain if its left on such as headlights, radios, and even door pins. These things can be problematic if they are left operating when your vehicle`s motor is off.
Problems operating the turn signals

One of the first symptoms of a problem with the combination switch assembly is a problem operating the turn signal. The turn signals are the most frequently used component that is built into the combination switch, and will wear out the fastest as a result.

Check the switch to the hazard lights and see if the switch got stuck. Sometimes the switch tends to stick and make the hazard lights stay on. If the switch is working, then the contacts in the switch have burned and fused together. Remove the fuse and remove the switch and replace it.
Flashing can indicate the intention to overtake or pass another driver, or to signal a driver who has just overtaken that he or she can now return to the original lane. Flashing can request or insist that a leading driver speed up or change lanes to get out of the way of a faster following driver.
If the lights turn on but the starter just clicks, then your battery is either bad or run down. If the lights turn on but nothing happens when the key is turned, then you may have a bad starter solenoid, or a bad connection, or the battery may have a dead cell.
Your hazard lights are the same lights used to signal that you`re turning. When you press the hazard light button on your car, it turns on all four flashers at the same time.
If the lights turn on but the starter just clicks, then your battery is either bad or run down. If the lights turn on but nothing happens when the key is turned, then you may have a bad starter solenoid, or a bad connection, or the battery may have a dead cell.
Second, if any of the lights are blinking, it generally means that immediate attention is required. Fixing the blinking light can be as simple as fastening your seat belt or making sure a door is fully closed. But if other lights are blinking, urgent repairs or service may be necessary.

Car won’t start. The check engine light, battery light, and oil change light are coming on. I tried jumping the car and nothing happened. Why won’t my car start?
ANSWER : Hi and thanks for contacting Your Mechanic. If sometimes your vehicle will start with the new alternator and sometimes it won’t, then there is a loose connection in your charging system. Check all of the wires to the alternator and to the battery. Make sure that the battery cables are clean and tight. Make sure that the wires to the starter are clean and tight. A loose ground to the ignition system will cause the vehicle to not crank over. Check all of the ground wires from the battery to the starter. Make sure that they are clean and tight. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your no start situation, then seek out a technician, such as one from Your Mechanic, that can assist you.

Vehicle won’t start, once it’s jump started it only stays running until you turn it off, then it work start again without jumping.
ANSWER : Hi there. There could be two problems here. It is possible that your battery is bad and will not take a charge from your alternator while driving. In that case every time you shut your car off you will not have enough juice to start it again. Inspect your battery – it should have at least 12.5 to 13 volts to start your car, if it doesn’t you will need to replace the battery. The second problem could be that your alternator is bad and not charging your battery, in this case you will need to replace your alternator. Both the battery and the alternator can be tested in your car. If you would like to have the car checked for you, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the starting problem and proceed with repairs.

Fuel pump engages. Batery good, alternator good volts, jump start helps when wont start. Temp does not matter. Intermittent?
ANSWER : Hello. Thank you for writing in. There are several reasons your vehicle may only start when jump starting. The first and most common is a build up of resistance that is causing you to need a boost of voltage to get the engine started. This may be due to poor battery cables, a bad ground connection, a poor starter solenoid, and a couple of other issues. The first thing you want to do is perform a visual inspection of the starting system. Make sure there is no corrosion build up in the battery cables. You can also check the resistance across these wires and make sure you have a solid connection between components. You then want to make sure the starter solenoid is doing its job. It is responsible for taking the small amount of electricity sent by the ignition and turning it into a huge electrical charge that is strong enough to push over the engine with the help of some gear ratios in its favor. Do some more testing, and stick to the basics before assuming its something seriously complicated.

No dash lights, back right tail light is out, no parking lights. Brake lights work though as does head lights.
ANSWER : Hi there. In many cases, when you have electrical problems like you’re describing, it’s caused by multiple electrical component failure. It’s likely that a few electrical relays are not working; especially if you have systems that utilize the same components (such as your brake light and tail lights). I would recommend having a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete an electrical problems inspection first, so they can pinpoint what is damaged and recommend the right repairs.

My hazard lights come on when open my car door and my clock in my car blinks also and my hazard light stay blinking what is the pr
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. There are several reasons why the hazards might turn on when you open the door. Typically when you open the door the jamb switch which controls the connection to your radio and interior lights is triggered to turn on and off. This switch is the first place you should look. However it may not be the switch itself that has failed, but the connections that lead from it to the components it will turn off or on. You may also want to look into the lighting control module, as it is one of the only things your interior lights and hazards have in common.

Battery light goes on when I start car then turns off, if I rev engine light comes back until rpms go down. Abs goes comes on/off
ANSWER : Batteries can die due to faults in the charging system so ideally a suspected "faulty" battery should be load tested before a decision is made to condemn it. The only exception to this rule is if the battery is already clearly "old" (greater than 5 years) but even then once you put a new battery in, as a replacement for a "dead" battery, you have to comprehensively check out the charging system. Diagnostic Trouble Code P0460 will result in disruption of the dashboard fuel gauge’s ability to accurately report your tank’s fuel levels. The fuel gauge readings may be erratic, or read somewhere off scale. Vehicles equipped with a low fuel warning light feature may also suffer from erratic low fuel warnings in the event of a code P0460. Unless the P0460 code has been reported alongside other trouble code, all of the vehicle’s essential systems should otherwise function normally. I would recommend that you request a check engine light diagnostic to first resolve the fault causing the P0460 code to set. The check gas cap light warning light could be due a faulty gas cap and/or small leaks in the EVAP system.

Abs light, emergency brake light, steering wheel assist light, engine light, EPC light, traction control light
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. The vehicle does utilize a lot of the same sensors for these systems. Are there any other codes that are coming up when this code appears? If so you will want to take these into consideration when processing the repair and making a diagnosis. The module may be bad, and replacing it should fix the problem. The lights should turn off once the main computer recognizes the new module and the sensors sync up. If you believe the sensors need to be cleaned you may do so. Do as minimal as possible to make sure you are not damaging the sensor or disrupting the wiring inside. A bad connection would make the lights stay on. With so many lights that are effected by the module being illuminated, the module is likely bad or does not have a connection. Check the connection first and then resort to replacing the unit.
