He left the key turned on and after 15 minutes SSEi would not reset and start. Now my car has been towed to my usual auto repair shop. Any ideas? I did not check the fuses yet Looking for a rental car.......in Oregon....justnw Thanks for other messages today.
The starter was a problem. In order to repair it I had the security system overridden. Now the engine starts but I cannot use the security system which was totally replaced approximately 2 years ago.
Still the antenna will not retract. A plastic piece which coils the antenna as it retracts is broken and will have to be replaced with an entire new antenna package since GM only sells it that way-$475! So...the antenna motor continues to work but my antenna has to be pushed in by hand if I want it to retract! Anyone know how I can get the replacement for the "plastic piece" which broke? --justnw
