Failure Date: 05/30/2017

When trying to start my vehicle, the security light comes on and the vehicle will not start for 10 minutes. This occurs on a weekly basis and occurs in many locations. Some of the locations include very rural areas with no phone signal, during high temperature days when a child is present in the vehicle. Ten minutes is a long time to sit with no cooling available and no ability to contact anyone. This occurs with no warning and no certain weather. GMC is aware of the passcode/passkey failures but has refused to recall such malfunctions, even though it affects thousands of vehicles.
