I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you probably have an issue with the park lock cable or the ignition switch rather than the cylinder. Plus, the keys that came with my cylinder that I bought from Rockauto were a generic key...you probably want to get the cylinder keyed for your car at a locksmith.

The relearn process takes 3 complete cycles with a new key, not one.
