You can't. GM designed the system that way on purpose. You'll have to be towed to your local Chevy Dealer for repairs. HTH. -Jim


Try this, manual lock all the doors but the drivers door from the inside, then with key in hand lock the drivers door from the outside with the key, wait till the dome lights go out and then count out at least 60 seconds, then unlock the drivers door and attempt an engine start. If that don't work consult the owners manual for further information on the security system, if that doesn't get you anywhere then it is time for the dealer to go in and reset the system, usually runs about a hundred bucks.
