I am trying to disable the anti theft system in my 96 concours deville. I bought a new key from the manufacturer and still will not start. Is there a way to just disable this on my car?

You can bypass it as long as the control module (called the VATS module) is ok. Go here for detailed instructions.

make sure your key is clean try again, if not the system will tell you to wait 3 mins while key is in ignition this will reset the system and dash will tell you to start vehicle, you should be fine after that, common cause dirty key!!!!!!!!

Read your manual or take it to the dealer. It sounds like it needs reset.....if this is a factory anti theft system, only the installer may be able to help you.

SOURCE: starting disabled due to anti-theft system

Almost always the key is not at fault. I know for sure heat changes the resistance of the key but it does not happen as a usual thing you would have to apply physical heat. Contact me at albmahone@yahoo.com

How do u disable a 94 cadillac deville anti theft system


U can bypass it (called the VATS system) but not fully disable it, what is done mimics the key code to fool the VATS module into sending a OK to start signal to the fuel injection computer (called the ECM). go to the web link below for instructions on the bypass.

1997 cadillac deville anti theft system comes on and i cant get my car started. Same exact problem just with a 1996 DeVille. I would imagine that this problem applies for most Cadillac's all around the...


I'm having the same problem, in research I have been told I need a new ignithion switch and or key. Ignition switch is not an easy thing to replace, The air bag must be disabled and that is a proccess discribed in another Solve, you should look further on this sight for that information. I'm just nursing mine alone for now.

Starter disabled due to theft system


the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out
