I'm not looking to put out anymore money on it, is there any other way to bypass it?
Chevy Mechanic: Daniel Jones,
 replied 2 years ago

You can have the system scanned for Theft Deterent codes to see where the problem is. Retreiving the codes should be done before replacing any parts, to ensure you are replacing the proper parts. Other than replacing the lock cylinder, which contains the passlock™ sensor, there is no other way to bypass the system.

Attached is a description of the system.
