The passlock looks for forced rotation, If the key is binding/sticking due to a worn or improperly cut key it can set a theft.

Here is the code set criteria from service information.

Does this vehicle have a remote start installed? It sounds to me like it is seeing another key or the theft system has been bypassed by remote start.

Thanks.... things like that help others with working with problems like this. By using the code set criteria that is listed in service information, it sure makes finding things like this pretty easy.

To me, it doesn't matter. If the new part didn't fix the problem, it still doesn't work. In this case, you have a code as a direction. This system is pretty simple, and a scope will root out the problem pretty quick.
