Yes spray WD40 on it, and leave it overnight.
In that case, that would be a definite,
because the extractors will cook the starter motor.

I was chatting to them and I said, If they make a sale here in Melb for GM Keys, and they want a contact to program them in, let me know,
Or Calliper Shims, which was a little rattle that got the better of me, and got hold of some replacements,

On a side note, for some reason my everyday Key for my VE failed,
That is correct, your Key you purchased from the locksmith on eBay has cloned 1 of your existing Keys.
So if you checked the BCM with a scanner,...

I read a simular thing a little while ago about the exact same fault,
