Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
The reset process takes 30 minutes total.Here is the complete reset process.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key.
The security light that should be flashing when you try and start is the one on the dash by the spedometer. It is possible the passlock does still have an issue. Typically when this happens the you turn the key over and the dash security light flashes everything is still operational but the starter will not turn over.If this problem continues to persist after the reset process is performed the passlock may need replaced and then reprogrammed. Please let me know and can post the passlock replacement procedure for you.

All the security issues I have seen with these models have been in the ignition switch.
I have never had to replace the module.
Contacts within the switch wear and intermittently lose their continuity.
You will need to have the switch replaced. The lock cylinder will remain so you will not need new keys.
There you are, thank you for using FixYa.

Hi! It's definitely a passlock system failure. If it's faulty there will be no fuel delivery to the engine. One good reason why the car won't start. Please have it replaced and you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
