If this doesn't work you'll probably need to take it to a dealer so they can use the scan tool.

30 Minute Re-Learn Procedure
Use this procedure after replacing lock cylinders, PASSLOCK Module/BCM or the PCM (if necessary - see note above).

Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (The vehicle will not start).
Observe the Security telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF.
Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
Repeat steps 1-4 two more times , for a total of 3 cycles and 30 minutes . The vehicle is now ready to relearn the PASSLOCK Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.

IMPORTANT: The vehicle learns the PASSLOCK Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

Start the engine. (The vehicle has now learned the PASSLOCK Sensor Data Code and/or password.)
Using a scan tool, clear any DTCs.
