straight out of chiltons. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 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 through 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. -------------------------------------- NOTE--------------------------------------- The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
