Default 2004 vue ignition switch issue

So I started having the car wont start in really cold weather and discovered it was the ignition switch, so I switched my old one for a new one and when I went to do the relearn passlock procedure, my car just started up normally. Does this mean it wasn't the ignition switch, because I had the security light blinking when my car wouldn't start which is what happens when the issue is the ignition switch. Anyone else had this happen to them? Should I be worried?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Does sound weird - how much of ignition switch assembly did you change?

Passlock sensor is part of the outer lock cylinder housing. There's a small connector (3 wires) that plugs into Passlock sensor near where key is inserted.

Changing only inner key cylinder wouldn't affect Passlock. Perhaps the new key cylinder rotates smoothly from OFF to START and the original was "grabbing" as it turned.

...
I rarely visit forum but respond to private messages (PM). PM creates email to phone & please include email address with question. Avoid using Visitor Message feature ... I almost never check those.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I only changed the ignition switch did not replace the key cylinder. I will test when the temperature gets really cold.
