Random lock out from the auto theft system. No help from the Chevy Garage. They say they have never seen the problem. I have to wait 15 minutes EVERY TIME it happens. Looks like 2000 malibus have a similar problem.

Frustrating when you get stranded...it eventually works either after 15 minutes, but sometimes an hour later...never know when...it can be hot, cold...you never know
