In front of your engine is the starter with the solenoid attached. there are wires running to it from the battery. If you short this out by touching a screwdriver to the two tips (about a half inch apart) it may start. If it keeps running you may need a new starter solenoid.

Cutting the yellow wire and installing a toggle switch will not do anything , except make the vehicle not start at all ever again . That is the pass lock sensor signal input to the BCM . You have demonstrated your lack of Knowledge of these systems ,Take it to a qualified repair shop

How to buy pass the anty lock

You may not be able to bypass the anti-lock system if you bought your car from a buy now pay now kind of place because they will shut down your car if your payment is late.

If you are talking about the system automatically locking your doors when you start the car, you cannot do that either because it is a safety feature.

Why my 2001 honda civic wont start after poped ingintion

You can't bypass it. It's there for a reason. You can temporarily bypass it through the correct procedure, but you must have the brake code from Honda first. If your ignition is damaged you have to replace the entire lock set, and have it all reprogrammed at your dealership. The immobilizer system works through the PCM so any attempt to bypass it will render it useless, and the car will never run.

Theft light keeps blinking and the engine wont crank over..

You must have the system scanned by the dealer to ID the cause of the false lock out. You can't really bypass the system.

The security light is flashing and the car wont start how do i fix it

May have a fault in the VATS. Most likely the wires that come from the ignition lock are broke. That is the weak link of the VATS.
Need to measure the resistance of the pelet n your key and basically add that value of resistors to the wire for the lock cylinder at the bottom of the column where they come out.
If you do a search for "VATS bypass" you should find diagrams of how to do this. (This is mistakenly refered to a VATS bypass while it really is not a bypass. The Pass Key module always stays in play. It just bypasses the weak link in the system.)

Car wont start

In most instances, bypassing the passlock system is not possible. One thing you may want to try is take your car down to the dealer and have them reflash the computer, less the theft deterent system.
