Truck starts fine and shuts off immediately. Is it the security system?

(2004 GMC Envoy)
Sorry for the double post, in another thread I posted as my car being a 2005 Trailblazer, my car is a 2004 Envoy. I can't figure out how to delete the other one.

My daughter left a car seat warmer plugged in over night and my battery was dead the next day. I jumped the vehicle and it fires up nice and smooth and sounds like everything is great, but the car runs for about 1 second then shuts off. My key fob will no longer unlock the car or do anything, the locks won't engage or disengage when the button is pressed, the stereo won't turn on.. The dash reads Unknown Driver instead of Driver 1 Driver 2.

I tried the 30 minute reset procedure, but I may have done it wrong, because there is no SECURITY light that flashes or even comes on for that matter. There isn't a Check Engine Light on, or any indication that something is wrong, the car simply starts and shuts off immediately. I have two keys, neither of them work.

So far I have tried to put the ignition in the on position, let it sit for 10 minutes and turn it off for 5 seconds and try to start it. That didn't work, so I tried to do that 3 times over, but one thing was missing from the instructions that I followed: the part where the security light blinks or turns off after 10 minutes.

Also, Does anyone know which anti-theft system this vehicle has?
