2000 SL2
Information Passlock relearn... (optional relearn)

I need to replace my ignition cylinder and am aware that the passlock system will need to be relearned. I don't work for a dealer anymore so I don't have access to a tech 2. The FSM does not state that the 30 min optional relearn will work for the I.C. only the passlock sensor itself. Any experience with this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a bunch,

car = 2000 sl2 auto

You might have to do the re-learn cycle a couple of times but it WILL work. I've replaced ignition switches in Cavaliers, Malibus, GMC Trucks, Impalas, etc. and haven't had a problem with the re-learn procedure. As soon as the "theft" light stops flashing you should be able to start the car.

I just had to do it at work today on an 02, worked fine.

OTOH, I hate it when our computers take a crap when I need to program stuff off of TIS..... Our computer crashes way too much...
