What is the Security Passload Sensor on a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado?

I have been told that the problem with my 2007 Chevrolet Colorado is the security passload sensor. The engine will turn over, but will not crank. I wait for about 10 minutes and try again, it will start then. The check engine light does not come on.

I have an 07 colorado and had this very same problem. Ocassionally i would hop in the truck and stick my key in...it would turn over but not crank. I read numerous threads that is was my crankshaft position sensor....like you i would wait ten minute and it would crank right up. After i replaced the sensor, 2 weeks later it did it again. Read more threads...got a brand new key and took off all of my keys to reduce weight on the ignition cylinder. 2 weeks later it did it again. Finally I figured out that all of those threads were wrong. My passlock light was flashing during those 10 minutes of waiting for one reason!!! My positive battery cable had corrosion on it. Even a little corrosion on your terminal will trick the passlock sensor into thinking the truck is being hacked and will not crank. Take it from me, clean the **** out of your terminal wire the proper wire brush and neutralizer, then coat the terminal and cable connection with a pile of either bearing grease or diode (red) grease to help prevent future corrosion. 4 months later i still havent had the problem come back, and I had it happen over 6 times in two months. Try it and see.

SOURCE: security light comes on in 1998 s-10

Your truck has what is called VATS Key or vehicle anti theft system. There is a small chip that is in your key. This chip has a set resistance that the computer measures. If there is moisture on the key, it can cause this, but the problem is likely either in the tumbler switch, or with the key. If you do not want to take it to the dealer for the repair, you can actually buy a kit online to bypass the VATS key module. (it will come w/ instructions.) If you have another key, try it to see if it has the same problem. If not, then it's the key. If so, the problem is either in the tumbler switch or the VATS module.

SOURCE: Why is security light blinking on a chevrolet

That means there is a problem with the VATS System. This sometimes happens when the battery is disconnected for an extended period. You might need to do a relearn for the keys. You can get it done with the right scanner in 5 minutes, but there is a way to do it without one.

Turn the key to the start position, release it to the on position, then leave it on for 11 minutes, then turn it off. Repeat this sequence three times, and on the fourth try it should start if that was the problem.

If the security light is on, the problem is with the Vehicle AntiTheft system. The key with the chip is not being read in the ignition cylinder. Therefore the computer doesn't allow it to be restarted for 10 minutes.

2006 chevy colorado passlock comes on and stays on, truck won't start for 10+ min. Can I disable this feature?


No, it can not be disabled.
The theft system is indicating a short term theft issue.
Have you added any "after market" remote start systems or alarms?
If NO.
Insert the key in the ignition, turn the key to run position ( do not start ) and leave it in that position for 10 minutes. Cycle the key to LOCK position, count to 10, then turn the key back to run position and leave on for 10 more minutes. After the 10 minutes is up, repeat the procedure (1) more time and the security system will relearn the PASS code.
Give it a try and let me know.
Regards,
