HouseCallAuto 2/1/2013I suspect that you have a bad passlock sensor which is the ignition lock cylinder and housing on this car. I want you to try the following procedure and see if it *temporarily* solves the issue. if after doing this procedure EXACTLY as it says, if the vehicle starts, it confirms that the passlock sensor and housing and ignition switch needs to be replaced.
1. Perform theft relearn.
2. Attempt to start the engine and leave the key on for 11 minutes. Do not return the key to off after the engine does not start.
3. The Theft light should be flashing.
4. When the light stays on solid, turn the key off for 5 seconds and attempt to start the engine.
