Hi there, I am Cam. Can I get your first name?

WE can remove or bypass the ignition sensor which is the most common issue here. To do that, get a 2.2K ohm resistor, 1/4 watt and do the following. Remove the steering column trim.Find the 3 small wires. Cut the yellow wire. Splice one end of your new resistor to the body side of the cut, splice the other to the black wire. Then do this relearn.

Turn the key on and attempt to start the car, It may crank, it may start and stall or it may do nothing at all, this is fine, still cycle the key to start then release the key back to run.
Wait 10 minutes with the key in run. The passlock light should be flashing and the DIC will say "Service Vehicle" or "Security" or have a picture of a car with a lock during that 10 minute span.
After 10 minutes has passed, turn off the car, count to 10, and try to start it again and release the key back to run.
Wait another 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, turn car off 10 seconds and try to start again and release the key to run.
Wait another 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, turn car off 10 seconds and try to start again.
It should start up this time. The passlock has been learned.

During this process, turn the fans off, radio off and cycle the headlights off so the battery will not go dead. If needed, use a battery charger.

I told you that I will try your solution as soon as the resister is delivered and they have already charged me. Bad start.
Bad start.
