30-Minute Learn Procedure

  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 1-4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes . The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock(TM) Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
  6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock(TM) Sensor Data Code and/or password.

Expert:  Gary replied 1 month ago.

follow what i just sent to you and see if it will start

if it does NOT then the ignition switch is bad and needs to be replaced as seen here

then after the new one is put in then you do the relearn one more time to learn the new ignition switch

the ignition switch is what reads the theft codes
