hey ppl my truck doesn't have an anti-theft system,but yesterday one of my good friends stopped by and told me he recently had to change the battery on his jimmy and when he unhooked it the anti-theft wouldn't let him start it after he put the new battery in,so he had to take it to a gm dealer and get his computer reprogrammed then it ran fine....anyways he said it cost him a little over $100 to do this plus the time and trouble of taking it to them and waiting til they could get him in...anyways he talked to a certified mechanic and he told him if he'd take a 12 volt plug in that goes in your cig. lighter and cut the wires and hook it to a 9 volt battery that it has enough power to maintain the system so that it won't go into protection mode until u can unhook the battery and swap it...didn't see if there waas a thread on it already,so maybe its already posted...just thought it may help some of u out.
