The dealer needs to set the key code using the on board diagnostic computer.the body control module needs the signal
otherwise,thieves would simply plug in a new ignition to the existing harness and steal a car.

The ignition key cylinder in a Buick
unlocks the ignition and allows the Buick's engine to start. The
cylinder contains a switch on the end of it (inside the cylinder) that
sends an electric signal to the starter motor. When the ignition key
cylinder fails, the Buick won't start. When this happens, you'll need a
new ignition cylinder. Purchase replacement cylinders from Buick.
