s​o you changed the key because? the passlock sensor fails often at least once in a life of these gm vehicles

I​f the light does not go off after the key has been on for the ten minutes (lets say on the first cycle) then that means the bcm is not recognizing the synch of the key and the passlock

th​e passlock sensor is built into the lock cylinder. you would need a semi good scanner (not the 100 dollar ones ) to get the ucodes and bcm codes that are set when the passlocks fail

s​o leave the key on for the ten minutes on the first pass if light does not go out that means you probably have a bad passlock sensor
