never heard of this happening before ,sounds more like the code reader behind the steering lock is playing up.If it is then its dealer only,have a funny feeling this could be an expensive repair.Sorry i couldnt be much more help but this fancy electronic stuff is designed to stop general mechanics like myself from doing repairs.

Im guessing you tried to bypass the key in the ignition/steering column. This is ok unless the actual problem was in the TDM (theft deterrent module) In this case, the 2 wire bypass does nothing. There is another way to bypass this. Check out this link for tons of info and some DO IT YOURSELF options. Ive done several key bypasses and tons of full bypasses. They both work well, it just depends on what part is failing. I think you need the full bypass to eliminate that TDM.
