HI,I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question. Ok, so after the 30 minute relearn procedure, it is saying theft system not programmed, correct? If so, then either new key is simply defective or there is an issue with the passlock control module. A scan tool is needed to retrieve any fault codes to know which is faulty
