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.
