Engine won't even crank? Start with a battery check

Q My '06 Malibu does not start. When I turn the key, the engine clicks -- nothing else. If I hold the key in the start position, it clicks once every second or so. The engine and security lights show as normal when the key is at start, as well as the oil and battery lights. The security light never flashes. The battery connections are clean, and my multimeter reads 12.22 volts with the key off. A scan tool pulled up a P1682 fault code. A Chevrolet dealer told me the problem is either a bad passlock sensor or body control module (BCM).
