No passlock passkey but still having problems with security light & stalling

The 2003 Monte Carlo definitely has an antitheft system. That is a fact. Though you cannot see the chip on the key like the older VATS version, these keys have a transponder hidden in the plastic head of the key that communicates a signal to the reciever in your ignition. The security light illuminating on the dash only has 1 purpose, and that is to tell you of the failure in your antitheft system (passlock or passkey). The intermittent starting is a dead give away of this problem and will only get worse until it doesnt start at all. You need to isolate the problem or bypass the system entirely. The hard part is finding what part of the system is failing. This link has all the info you need, plus pictures and a 100% cure if so desired.

My 99 monte carlo wont start the lights and radio work but the car wont start what do i do

If you have power but the starter won't engauge here are a few things to check 1 start at the fuse box check fuses. If the fuses are good check the starter. This time of year cold weather starters have more strain and burn out easier. Also exessive oil dripping on the starter can cause to go out because of residue build up in the starter. If the starter checks out good it is then a bad conection or wire. thanks

I have a 2000 monte carlo ss 3800 series. Sometimes the security light comes on and car will not start. When security light is not on, car always starts.Any ideas?

The passlock is having issues try this procedure and see if it helps. If it does not the passlock and ignition tumbler may need replaced.

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

Does anyone know how to bypass the security to install a command start on a 2004 Monte Carlo? What bypass do you ues, expresskit? Fortin?

This vehicle requires the use of a passlock 2 module for the VATS system.
Many companies make them.

Here is a Bulldog 791 bypass install instructions (they all work similarly)...

But these modules tend to fail...
MAKE your own (more reliable one) for about $10 in parts.
See this link...

Astrostart is the parent company of Command Start.

I installed a pljx vats (keyless entry) bypass to remote start. When I try to remote start the system turns on but does not crank, (security light starts blinking) its when I insert the key that the remote...

For some reasons the bypass is not working, so you need the key to be recognized by the Theft Deterrent Module (TDM) before the fuel enable signal to the PCM can be activated.
There is a great DIY way of bypassing the VATS system entirely, including the TDM (that goes faulty very often with the age of the car). You can find the write-up here:

96 chevy monte carlo 3.1 wont start

check to see if the wire is broken for the passlock/passkey system in the ignition lock cylinder, its common for the copper wire to seperate inside the insulation, when you tilt the column it could have been pushing the wires together enough to touch inside the insulation
