There are several configurations of the same security system. But one sure fire way to correct this issue is to get a bypass kit. Any shop that installs remote startups has the ability to bypass this system. Since the sytem measures the resitance of the key/lock and asociated wiring any shorting of those wires will make it very difficult to defaet without some expertise.
Sometimes the remote atart kit also includes the bypass, so you can get two for one here.

SOURCE: steering column locked
temporary solution is to put the key in the ignition and tap on the end that attaches to the ring vdery gently with something like a pocket knife. this allows the pin to fall into place and work better. try to keep the key in an unbound... not against either the clockwise limit or counterclockwise limit.... as you are tapping. if this works, lubricate the lock and get it to a locksmith before it quits working all together and the lock needs to be drilled

SOURCE: security system shut car down
man these buick dealerships are making a killing nowadays, the keys have a chip in them that helps a sensor in the steering column recognize that those are the right keys for that car, it's an anti-theft device that sometimes backfires, usaully the culprit is a damage chip in the key, because keys get thrown around and mashed up with other keys in peoples pockets, the key it self is not cheap but it is cheaper than replacing steering column. Get a new key and see if that helps, they should have provided you with a new key if they replaced the steering column and the sensor inside of it. I think dealerships aren't making enough money selling cars in this economy and are making frivolous repairs that don't help fix problems and charge a lot of money in the process

HI, PROBLEM AREA ON A WIDE RANGE OF "GM" CARS WHAT IT IS IS THAT YOUR PASSLOCK SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED WHICH MEANS THAT FUEL IS SHUT OFF TO THE ENGINE THEIR IS ONE WAY TO GET AROUND THIS BUT THE PART NEEDS REPLACED YOU NEED A NEW INGITION LOCK CYLINDER THIS HAS THE SENSOR BUILT INTO IT ANYWAYS GET IN CAR TRY AND START IT IT MAY OR MAY NOT ATTEMPT TO FIRE AT THIS POINT LEAVE THE KEY IN THE RUN POSITION AND YOU MUST!!!!!!!!! LEAVE IT IN THE RUN POS. FOR APPROX. 10 MINUTES WATCH THE DASH THE THEFT OR SERCURITY LITE WILL BE FLASHING WHAT THIS WILL DO IS THE BODY CONTROL MODULE LOST MEMORY OF YOUR KEY AND HAS TO RELEARN IT AFTER AFTER 10 OR SO MINS. THE LITE WILL REMAIN ON STEADY MEANING NOT BLINKING ANYMORE TURN KEY OFF THEN TRY TO START CAR.. THIS IS NOT A FIX YOU MUST REPLACE PASSLOCK SENSOR.....
