Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. try this procedure:

Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON, vehicle will not start. Observe the SECURITY light. After approximately 10 minutes , the security light will turn OFF. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Pass lock Sensor Data Code and/or password ***** the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds. Start the engine, the vehicle has now learned the voltage reading coming back from the ignition switch.
