Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

95 chevy caprice pass key fault.

When I put the key in the ignition it won't start. It just says pass key fault. I had the key checked by the dealership, and the key is good. How do I fix this? Or what needs to be replaced? Thanks.

    I have the same problem with my '96 impala. The care was sitting for a month without being started... my battery is now dead, and when I tried to jump the car the pass key light just stays on, the car doesn't even try turning over. No nothing.

Get a second ignition key, the one you are using is dirty or moisted, you need to turn on and off the car witha clean key, hapens to me once in a while.!!

The pass key fault light blinking and my car won't started in my 95 chevy caprise does that mean its something wrong with the key?


did you get a new key made without the chip? The car will not run without the chip in the key. Could be a bad chip in the key itself. Get a replacement where they sell keys with a key chip identifier.

95 chevy camaro with pass key will not start. Replaced key and it started. Later it did not start. What's going on? What are some things to try?


If it's the same as the VATS system in my 86 Corvette (resistor pellet in key) the ignition switch might need to be replaced. The contacts on the key wore low, replacing the key helped for a short time but the new contacts wore the switch down faster then it too needed to be replaced. $200!

Keypass fault wont let my 95 caprice classic start


your resistor chip on your VATS key make look fine but there are also contacts just inside your key way on your ignition that work with your key to make the connection to the cars computer allowing it to read the resistors value and if it matches, allows to car to start, if it does not make proper contact some time, it will not read the key and car will not start, probably you need to have the ignition replaced.......

My 95 chevy caprice won't start because of the pass key fault. how can i fix this problem?


I have a 96 Caprice and this has happened to me twice now. There are two wires that are behind the ignition (where the key goes) one or both of the wires have more thsn likely broken. I was told that the little chip in the key may have been bad so I had a new key made, didn't solve the problem!! Come to find out there was a guy in my area that rebuilds steering colums and ingnitions when there's a problem or someone tried to steal the vehicle. So I live in Dayton, Ohio hopefully your in the area probably not but try to find someone who works on cars in your area and have them take your ingnition out, and i'm about 90% sure that that is your problem. Hope it works for you. Kevin
