 The security light comes on and stays on ,sometimes car will not start and sometimes dies while driving and loses power at any giving time. the key that has a the sensor does not read or give the correct resistance to the vats security system and the security system shuts the car off. i believe it has something to do with the key resistance and the egnition in which it goes into. something electrical is not reading or making contact messing up all the security in the car.

 Consumer complaint regarding gm corp placing electronic recording devices in vehicles without informing the customer.*mr *nm
 I have had multiple electrical issues with the vehicle with the keyless entry and theft deterent key chip system malfunctioning and the radio face display not working at all unless i turn the radio off and on until it work sometime 5 or 6 times. the vehicle when it was brand new had a noise coming from the 6speed manual transmission in third and fourth gear now the vehicle has 17000 miles and it is much worse with some difficulty shifting on accasion. the differential has a whining noise at 50-60 mph at cruising rpm and the dealership tells me this is normal. i am severely irritated with gm for the disregard to customer service and even if you are within your original warranty you can forget about getting a loaner vehicle during any repairs. that is one of the major things keeping me from giving them my car. three different dealerships in the houston area have all told me that wear parts are not covered in warranty which is bumper to bumper full warranty. i just don't think a transmission should be doing this at 17000 miles. not to mention i have already had to replace most of the braking system out of my own pocket when the vehicle had less than 10000 miles on it from a sticking brake caliper. i am very displeased since i bought this vehicle new.*ak
