the 'factor' message I think is a partial message for 'Factory reset'

and refers to a loss of battery power to the body control module

I'd suggest getting a dealer level scan tool plugged in so the monitoring functionality between modules can be tested as if you have a loss of comms then the security system will prevent an engine start

sorry its not a more DIY answer but this is often the case with security systems
