Return to where the recall was performed and ask for help. They may already know what the issue is with the key or the cylinder, or the system. The dealer is a good place to get answers if it is factory alarm and they touched it.

It has been at the dealership for 4 days. They can not come up with an answer. I thought maybe someone else has run into this. Thanks for suggestion.

All I can say is, if the key is recognized by the system ? Then there may be a concern with the alarm system part in that door. Whether that relates to the work that was done ? I cannot imagine, but knowing what recall it was, and what part(s) were replaced may help if someone reads this and has anything to add. The next question is; what code is in the cars computer for the security system? Some of GM's cars can be electrically altered to bypass the part of the system that recognizes the key during recurring no starts. This has been on the J-cars, it is not necessarily information from GM.
