Default Resetting Passlock system after replacing ignition switch.

Hopefully this will make it to the How-to section. I can't open a new thread there (?). I didn't see a how-to there. I did search that forum.

After replacing the ignition switch...

Turn the key and attempt to start the car, it won't. It may crank once.
Wait 10 minutes. The passlock light should be flashing and the DIC may display a "Service Vehicle" message during that 10 minute span.
After 10 minutes have passed (passlock light will go out), turn the car off, count to 10, and try to start it again.
Wait another 10 minutes (passlock light will go out).
After 10 minutes, turn car off 10 seconds and try to start again.
Wait another 10 minutes (passlock light will go out).
After 10 minutes, turn car off 10 seconds and try to start again.
It should start up this time. If so, the passlock has been learned.
