Default Intense PCM - Security Relearn question

I'm working on putting in my Intense PCM. Can it take alot longer than 10 minutes for the "SECURITY" light to go off during the security relearn procedure? Am I just being impatient???

Does the security light go off and stay off or does it just shut off and turn back on? Every time I go out to check it the light is still on.

On some vehicles (Bonneville, Regal, Impala SS, Monte Carlo SS, and 2004+ Grand Prix) it will be necessary to perform this Security Relearn Procedure before the car can be started. No tools are required to complete this procedure and it can be accomplished 30 to 45 minutes after the PCM is initially installed. You must complete the procedure without opening any of the vehicle doors or trunk. It'* best to open the drivers window and reach inside the vehicle to complete the learn procedure.

For Bonneville, Regal, Impala, and Monte Carlo vehicles 1997-2004 and Cobalt, ION 2004-2006:


Set the parking brake to disable the daytime running lights system to avoid draining the vehicles battery.
Try to start the vehicle by turning the key to the START position (using a Master Pass-Key key, not a Valet key). Allow the key to fall back into the ON position. DO NOT TURN THE KEY TO THE OFF POSITION.
Observe the SECURITY telltale on the dashboard or driver information center. After approximately ten minutes it should turn off for the first time.
Turn OFF the ignition and wait for ten seconds.

You are basically waiting for the retained power timer to time out. It takes 10 minutes unless the timer is bad.

I'm using Intense'* instructions. I put the PCM in as I was putting in the FWI. Hooked the battery back up once we got the tire back on the car. Waited 45min, now have been trying to do the relearn, but that security light wont go out.
