2001 Chevy Cavalier: put a new ignition..now it wont start..bypass

Customer Question

We have put a new ignition in a 2001 Chevy Cavalier but now it won't start due to the security device. How can we bypass the security device so we can get the car operational?

You can program the new cylinder by performing the procedure below. May sure you do everything in the directions or it will not work.

 

1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON. The vehicle will not start.
3. Observe the SECURITY telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF.
4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the PasslockTM Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
Important: The vehicle learns the PasslockTM Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the PasslockTM Sensor Data Code and/or password.
