Angry Security Shut Off 2003 Bonneville SSEi

I had Best Buy removing my Sirius from my 03 SSEI and when they were backing it out of the garage, the horn started beeping and the car shut down. They had to removed the fuse to stop the horn. Now the car won't do anything. The only thing that works is the flashers, interior lights and power door locks. The windows are all down and I can't get them up. I have tried everything. I read somewhere about manually opening the door with a key, turning the ignition to on, and then hitting the valet switch. But I can't find a valet switch.

Would appreciate any advice.

Your reference to valet mode tells me you have a remote start system. Is that correct?

To remove the remote start system from valet mode there are two different procedures (depending on which method you used to get it INTO valet mode).

To put the system out of Valet mode using the KEY (Ignition Valet Mode):
1. Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch. Within 10 sec., turn the key 5 times
successively into the IGNITION/RUN and OFF positions.
2. The parking lights will flash twice.
3. Turn the ignition OFF.
4. The LED on the antenna will flash quickly to indicate that the vehicle is now out of Valet mode.
5. The V icon will disappear on your LCD remote if LOCK or UNLOCK button is pressed.

To put the system out of Valet mode using the TRANSMITTER (Remote Valet Mode):
• Press the LOCK and (LIGHTNING - START/STOP) buttons simultaneously until the parking lights flash 2 times or until the V icon disappears from your LCD remote.
• The LED on the antenna will flash quickly to indicate that the vehicle is now out of Valet
mode.
The system will warn you if someone attempts to remote start the vehicle while in Valet Mode:
The parking lights will:
Turn ON then OFF; then Flash twice.

It turns it was 2 blown main fuses. Now to battle Best Buy to determine if it was their fault. Seems an amazing coincidence it happened when they were playing around under the dashboard.

I think it'* pretty clear what happened... fuses don't just blow for no reason. Not that you will be able to get much out of them considering it was just a couple fuses, but make sure any diagnostic bills or additional costs incurred are covered by them.

And now even more fun. Apparently Best Buy disconnected the antenna, because I can't get any AM stations and barely get some FM stations.
Best Buy is on my list.

I've moved your thread into the Audio & Aftermarket Electronics section. If you're still having trouble, someone there will see it. Plus, it'll help future Best Buy victims.
