Question type: Maintenance & Repair

recently my tahoe won't start, had it towed, tech reset the computer, gave me instructions as how to override this issue; turn on without starting for 11 minutes. off for 30 seconds; repeat.   This works.   What and where is this issue located?  tilt wheel, ignition etc..........

325

this is related to the passlock module, which is part of the ignition cylinder assembly (passlock sensor part of the ignition housing)...it's either a worn passlock sensor or worn transponder (part of the key). intermittent condition. 10 minute relearn procedure involves leaving key on for 10 minutes until security indicator stops flashing.
