Default 2003 Saturn Ion ignition replacement

Replaced bad ignition switch due to bad tumblers (new switch, same key.) After reassembly, passlock icon on dash is lite. most threads say to either reset computer or passlock itself. Neither choices work (10 minutes on, 5 -20 seconds off.) Passlock icon does not flash as per all threads, but stays lite. Vehicle has 98,000 miles, and started perfectly before switch change. Vehicle sat idle for 4 months before I replaced the switch. Battery is fully charged.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The ignition switch has no tumblers. Did you replace the switch or the lock cylinder? It's spelled light...

Service Information


2003 Saturn ION | ION VIN A Service Manual | Body and Accessories | Theft Deterrent | Repair Instructions | Document ID: 1701021
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Programming Theft Deterrent System Components
Important:

•If replacing the BCM with a GM Service Parts Operations (SPO) replacement part, the module will learn Passlock™ sensor data code immediately. The existing PCM however, must learn the new fuel continue password when the BCM is replaced.
•If replacing a PCM with a GM SPO replacement part, after programming, these modules will learn the incoming fuel continue password immediately upon receipt of a password message. Once a password message is received, and a password is learned, a learn procedure must be performed to change this password again. A PCM which has been previously installed in another vehicle will have learned the other vehicle's fuel continue password, and will require a learn procedure after programming to learn the current vehicle's password.
ConditionsUse this procedure after replacing:

•Passlock™ Sensor
•BCM
•PCM
Learn ProceduresThere are 2 available methods to perform the programming procedure:

•A 10-minute procedure which requires a Tech 2 and a techline terminal.
•A 30-minute procedure which does not require the use of any tools.
10-Minute Learn ProcedureTools Required
•Tech 2
•Techline terminal with current Service Programming System (SPS) software
 1. Connect the Tech 2 to the vehicle.
 2. Connect the Tech 2 to the Techline terminal.
 3. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
 4. Following the instructions on the Techline terminal, select the appropriate vehicle information.
 5. On the techline terminal, select “BCM Learn” .
 6. Select the appropriate transmission and BCM type.
 7. The Techline terminal will program the BCM and then start a 10-minute countdown.
 8. Do not disconnect the Tech 2 until the 10 minute countdown is complete.
 9. Observe the SECURITY telltale. After approximately 10 minutes, the telltale will turn OFF. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock™ Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
10. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 30 seconds.
11. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the password.
12. With the Tech 2 (scan tool), clear any DTCs.
30-Minute Learn ProcedureImportant: Do not remove the key from the ignition during this procedure. If the key is removed, the procedure will have to be performed from the beginning.

 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON. The vehicle will not start.
 3. Observe the SECURITY telltale. After approximately 10 minutes, the telltale will turn OFF.
 4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
 5. Repeat steps 1–4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/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 password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock™ Sensor Data Code and/or password.
 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
