This is a very common problem on GM vehicles. The security system is known to fail. Basically when you insert your key, the system checks for certain OHMS resistance. If the system cannot get the correct signal from the key, it assumes the key is incorrect and goes into SECURITY lockout mode. (prevents hotwiring) This has been happening with GM;s for a very long time. There are ways to bypass this now. Read through this page for info, solutions as well.

Sounds like a Tps issue (throttle position sensor). It's thinking it's closed throttle when it isn't.

Depends on shop rate. But looking at about 4 hours labor plus parts. So I would guess around $300 to $500. I'm guessing you have the 4 cylinder. So it could be more as it is old and parts break removing them. Like the rusty water jacket that runs under the engine.

Make sure your battery is fully charged and check all battery cables . Make sure the connections are clean and tight.if the starter clicks the starter solenoid switch could be at fault. Could be a bad starter its self. If its internal your ring gear in the engine could have teeth missing causing the starter to just spin.
These are just ideas.

there are several likely reasons -

Poor/no flow of heated coolant through heater core (heat exchanger - mini radiator in cabin) this could be due to closed valve or blockage in pipe of core.

No air flow - bad blower, blend door problem

Hopefully it won't come down to a core replacement!

To check your automatic transmission fluid, look for a dipstick handle sticking out of your transmission. This is located toward the rear of an in-line engine on vehicles with rear-wheel drive as shown here:

emissionwiz_76.jpg If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the transmission fluid dipstick is sticking out of the transaxle, as shown here.


emissionwiz_77.jpg To check your automatic transmission fluid, follow these steps:
  1. Pull out the dipstick.

    With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)

  2. Check the fluid.

    Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.

  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.

    If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!
