Having problems with your 2001 Chevrolet Corvette ?
Corvette 2001 will not start with battery cables or a other car
If the security light is on then it could be your key or ignition switch in the column is bad, around that year gm was using a resister on the single edge keys, if this has went bad then it won't even crank. i had this problem with my 01 camaro.if you want to test this idea then go to the dealer and purchase a new column switch it will be spcefic to your car so you will need your vehicle registration but don't tear into it right away find the wire connector at the bottum of the steering column it will look like the wires on the new switch and unplug the old one and plug in the new switch with the key that came with it in it try to start the car with the switch thats still in the column if it dont work then you can take back the new switch because you never installed it. If you have a spare key with that chip then try it first could just be a bad key sorry for writing a book
