so the starter was tested but was it tested properly
was a torque test done to check the pinion drive clutch for operation
sounds like either that clutch is faulty or the pinion drive is not being moved out by the solenoid linkage before the starter is engaged

take it to a tyre shop and they will tell you if it is possible
if you have standard 6 "X 15" rims probably not
there should be a tyre decal on the door edge/ opening that states the max. permitted tyre on your vehicle

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Does it just die or does it drop rpms and like shudder first? Also what is the year, make, and model of said vehicle?

Sounds like it could be the wires in the push button starter making contact and turning off the car. I would start there looking for exposed copper wire, if you find some you can either put some electrical tape around it(just as a temporary fix) or disconnect the battery and trim the wires (one by one so you know where they connect correctly). You could also go to auto zone, advance auto, Napa, etc and get a replacement ignition and/or go to a mechanic, just be aware of you take it to a mechanic, electrical issues can be pretty expensive. Keep me posted on what you find out so we can make sure this gets fixed for you. Also if you do go to advance auto or auto zone have them check your battery and connections, it only takes a few minutes and it's free, this may also detect if it's just a battery issue, doesn't sound like it but it's always good to be sure.

Pull the spark plugs, install the proper size socket on the crank shaft bolt and move it back and forth. If it moves the engine is not locked up, However: rotate the socket one direction for a full two rotation to insure. If it stops there is something bent or broken.

If the wheel cover is detachable, there could be something trapped inside. Also, a puncture repair plug could be trapped inside the tire. A third possibility is that the noise is related to a rear brake problem

The fuse is on the driver side inside in the fuse panel or under the hood in the fuse box. Not of location but it has to be one of those two places.
