It might be cheaper to install a remote car starter, but you still need a key to insert and turn to run in order to operate the vehicle and release the steering wheel lock.

SOURCE: need instuctions to change tail/break lights on 07 dodge caliber

popohead, if people thought it was easy, they wouldn't be here asking. Your reply is useless.

To remove the pins, look a them closely. Notice that there's two little notches cut into the cup that holds the pin. Use a flathead on each side to leveredge them out a little. If that doesn't work at all, you can use a pair of pliers to firmly grip the head of the pin and pull straight out. Quick firm pull.

Once the first pin comes out, the second pin should easily come out. At that point, firmly grip your taillight housing, and pull straight back: Don't try to wiggle it out, and don't try to lift it to one side or the other like a trunk or door. Just pull it firmly straight back like you would a dresser drawer.

Once it's out, the little wiring harnesses come out of the taillight housing with about a 1/4 turn, and the bulbs just slide straight out of those.

Good luck!

I have a Toyota Passo with the Key missing. Is there any way to bypass the keyless system so I can start the car manually?


there is no way to bypass the security system I am afraid as it is controlled by the engine control module. I wrote this tip

Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
Want to bypass your vehicle security system? The short answer is you can't!

All modern cars have alarms and immobilizers. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. If both are present, the ECM (engine control module) releases power to the ignition circuit. When you turn the key, the starter spins the engine and you get a spark. If any one of those three items are not in the chain, you get the engine to turn, but no spark. There is no way to beat the system. You have to fix what is wrong, not find a way around it.

The immobilizer is in place to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

Need to get 98 s10 2.2 to rset passlock . howcan i trick computer withturn signal switch, i seen it done once


No you didn't ! you only think you did . Turn signal switch has nothing to do with it .
Ignition Lock Cylinder and Housing
The ignition lock cylinder is located at the upper right side of the steering column. The Passlock™ sensor is in the steering column. The Passlock™ sensor is separate from the key and lock cylinder. The key and the lock cylinder work together in order to determine if the proper ignition key was used to start the vehicle.
In the event of an open Class 2 serial data line between the BCM and the VCM/PCM, the vehicle will become fail-enabled if the VCM/PCM has already received the password from the BCM for that ignition cycle (the engine is running). In this event, the following conditions occur:
• The security telltale will be ON continuously.
• The VCM/PCM will become fail-enabled for future ignition cycles.
If a failure in the Class 2 serial data line occurs before the ignition cycle, when the VCM/PCM is not fail-enabled, the following conditions occur:
• The VCM/PCM will never receive a valid password in order to enable the fuel injectors.
• The vehicle will not start.

The design of the passlock™ system is to prevent the vehicle operation if the proper ignition key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The mechanical key, in normal operation, will turn the passlock™ lock cylinder. The passlock™ sensor will relay the passlock™ data to the body control module (BCM). The BCM will determine the validity of the passlock™ data. The BCM will send a code password to the vehicle/powertrain control module (VCM/PCM). When the VCM/PCM receives the correct code the VCM/PCM allows the fuel injectors to operate normally. The passlock™ system requires the VCM/PCM and the BCM to communicate the various functions in order to operate. These functions transmit over the class 2 serial data line CKT 1807. For an explanation of the class 2 serial data operation refer to Data Link Connector Circuit Description in Wiring Systems.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop , there is a real possibility of rendering your vehicle useless if you don't know what your doing

How can i bypass the security system in my 07 dodge caliber to start n run?


Mostly the anti-theft system cannot be bypassed. Even the paasive system works at two levels with the code in the transponder key being recognised and matched by the code programmed into one of those pesky black boxes which in turn sends another signal to unlock the engine management ECU.

In the case of a low value vehicle where proper repairs to the security system would be uneconomic it is possible to have the ECU decoded.

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

The Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) is available as a factory-installed option on this vehicle. Vehicles

equipped with the Vehicle Theft Alarm (VTA) are also equipped with SKIS. The SKIS provides passive vehicle protection

by preventing the engine from operating unless a valid electronically encoded key is detected in the ignition

lock cylinder.

The SKIS includes the following major components, which are described in further detail elsewhere in this service

information:

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

The Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) is designed to provide passive protection against unauthorized vehicle

use by disabling the engine after about two seconds of running, whenever any method other than a valid Sentry Key

is used to start the vehicle. The SKIS is considered a passive protection system because it is always active when

the ignition system is energized and does not require any customer intervention. The SKIS uses Radio Frequency

(RF) communication to obtain confirmation that the key in the ignition switch is a valid key for operating the vehicle.

The microprocessor-based SKIS hardware and software also uses electronic messages to communicate with other

electronic modules in the vehicle over the Programmable Communications Interface (PCI) data bus. (Refer to 8 -

ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULES/COMMUNICATION - OPERATION).

Pre-programmed Sentry Key transponders are provided with the vehicle from the factory. Each Sentry REmote Entry

Module (SKREEM) will recognize a maximum of eight Sentry Keys. If the customer would like additional keys other

than those provided with the vehicle, they may be purchased from any authorized dealer. These additional keys

must be programmed to the SKREEM in the vehicle in order for the system to recognize them as valid keys. This

can be done by the dealer using a diagnostic scan tool or, if Customer Learn programming is an available SKIS

feature in the market where the vehicle was purchased, the customer can program the additional keys, as long as

at least two valid Sentry Keys are already available. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/VEHICLE THEFT SECURITY -

STANDARD PROCEDURE - TRANSPONDER PROGRAMMING).

The SKREEM performs a self-test of the SKIS each time the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, and will

store fault information in the form of a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) if a system malfunction is detected. The SKIS

can be diagnosed, and any stored DTC can be retrieved using a diagnostic scan tool. Refer to the appropriate

diagnostic information



page 68

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

WARNING: To avoid personal injury or death, on vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the supplemental

restraint system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, airbag, occupant classification system,

seat belt tensioner, impact sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect

and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge

before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the supplemental

restraint system. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment.

The hard wired Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) components and circuits may be diagnosed and tested using

conventional diagnostic tools and procedures. Refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information

includes wiring diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, details of wire harness routing and retention,

connector pin-out information and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds.

However, conventional diagnostic methods may not prove conclusive in the diagnosis of the Sentry Key REmote

Entry Module (SKREEM), the ElectroMechanical Instrument Cluster (EMIC), the Powertrain Control Module (PCM),

the Programmable Communications Interface (PCI) data bus, or the electronic message inputs used to provide the

electronic features of the SKIS. The most reliable, efficient, and accurate means to diagnose the SKREEM, the

EMIC, the PCM, the CAN data bus, and the electronic message inputs for the SKIS requires the use of a diagnostic

scan tool. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic informatio

What is a immobilizer key


It's the part of your ignition that reads your chipped key. If your key is damaged or the key sentry immobilizer is faulty it may prevent your vehicle from starting. Usually your vehicle comes with a non chipped valet bypass key just for that reason

How to bypass an immobiliser


you cannot disable the immobiliser. it is a system mercedes has put into to prevent theft. however, you can bypass the immobiliser (otherwise known as EIS, Electronic Ignition Switch) in order to switch ON the car, but you wont be able to start it.
what you need to do it remove the connector from the back of the EIS module and bridge terminals 15r and terminal 30. i recommend getting a wiring diagram specific to your car to be sure of the terminals.

however, do this at your own risk.

MY 2003 DODGE DAKOTA SECURITY LIGH STAYS ON


Maybe this will help:
From the owners manual:

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER - IF EQUIPPED
With this system, an electronically coded ignition key
sends a signal to the vehicle electronics. If the electronics
recognizes the signal, the vehicle will start and continue
to run. If the system does not recognize the signal, the
vehicle will start and run for 2 seconds, then shut off.

After six unsuccessful attempts at starting, the system
will shut down until the correct key is used.

That's exactly what happened when I cut a new key and tried to start the truck without programming the key. So it looks like your truck is not recognizing the key.
If you have another key, try that one.

Or, try and disconnect the battery for a while, that clears up a lot of electrical problems.

Td
