Without a key with anti-theft transponder inside your not starting anything . Your best bet call mobile lock smith . Anti-theft system ,software programmed into all module's involved in starting the vehicle .
The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent control module. The VTD system prevents vehicle operation if a learned Passkey III (PK3) ignition key is not used to start the vehicle. Vehicles with steering column mounted ignition switches have the exciter integral with the theft deterrent control module which is located within the steering column. Vehicles with instrument panel mounted ignition switches have exciter modules separate from the theft deterrent control module with the vehicle wiring harness connecting the two. The PK3 key has a transponder embedded in the plastic head of the key. The exciter is an antenna which is made up of wire coils which surround the ignition lock cylinder. The PCM enables engine starting when it receives a learned fuel enable signal from the theft deterrent control module. The components of the VTD system are as follows:

Diagnostic Starting Point - Theft Deterrent
Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Theft Deterrent . The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
• The identification of the control module(s) which command the system.
• The ability of the control module(s) to communicate through the serial data circuit.
• The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status.
The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
your best bet is have your vehicle towed to the dealer or some other qualified repair shop .

What is the name of the outer ring that has copper wires behind it? its around the cylinder key lock and its the ring surrounding the part that says ACC n ON?


This is part of the anti-theft system , immobilizer !


The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent module (TDM). When an ignition key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and the ignition is switched ON, the transponder embedded in the head of the key is energized by the exciter coils surrounding the ignition lock cylinder. The energized transponder transmits a signal that contains a unique value, which is received by the TDM. The theft deterrent control module then compares this value to a value stored in memory, learned key code. If the value is correct, the TDM sends a random generated number to the transponder. This is called a challenge. Both the transponder and the TDM perform a calculation on the challenge. If the calculations match, the TDM sends the fuel continue password via the serial data circuit to the engine control module (ECM). If either the transponders unique value or the calculation to the challenge is incorrect, the TDM will send the fuel disable password to the PCM via the serial data circuit. The components of the VTD system are as follows:


It is a theft deterrent module !

I need to get passed the anti theft reset to get my 2000 cad.devlle.going, just bought it, I need help to locate fuse boxes, would like to trade somebody for a sharp running truck or car straight across,...


One is under the hood in the engine compartment an Rear Fuse Block
Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat ! There are a couple of fuse's , but they power up the ignition an the PCM ,so you can't pull those ! Beside that if the PCM does not get a fuel enable signal from the anti-theft module the vehicle won't start . You can't just disable thing's on this vehicle ! If you have security light on steady or flashing you need to take it to someone who has a diagnostic scan tool that can check DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! A code reader can not access these type codes !
Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD)Circuit Description
(VTD) Theft Deterrent System Components
Ignition Key (Transponder) The ignition key for the (VTD) theft deterrent system is a typical ignition key with a transponder pellet located in the plastic end of the key. The ignition key transponder value is used to determine if a valid ignition key is being used to start the vehicle, there are approximately three trillion different transponder values available. This vehicle has two types of ignition keys.
?€¢
Master key (black plastic end) which can start the vehicle and lock/unlock all door locks, all storage compartments and the rear compartment lid lock.


?€¢
Valet key (gray plastic end) which can start the vehicle and unlock/lock all doors, but can not unlock/lock the storage compartments, or rear compartment lid lock.

Important: The transponder values are not readable and can not be serviced separately.
Theft Deterrent Module The theft deterrent module contains the software for controlling the VTD System. The theft deterrent module uses the following inputs and outputs to control the VTD system.
Inputs ?€¢
Battery voltage from the underhood fuse block PCM/BATT fuse, circuit 240 (ORN).


?€¢
Ignition start voltage from the ignition switch, circuit 1390 (WHT).


?€¢
Ground, circuit 450 (BLK).
Outputs Password exchange with the PCM (fuel enable), class 2 message circuit 1807 (PPL).
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) The PCM verifies that the passwords received from the theft deterrent module via the class 2 serial data line are valid. If a password is invalid the PCM disables the fuel delivery system. If the password is valid the PCM enables the fuel delivery system.
Starter Relay The starter relay is controlled by the PCM module via class 2 serial data (CKT 1807 PPL). If the theft deterrent module measures the correct transponder value, the PCM module switches the starter enable control (CKT 447 YEL) to ground. The relay is energized if the ignition switch is in the START position and the gear selector is in the PARK or NEUTRAL positions.

Where is the theft deterrent module located (VATS or anti-theft module) in GMC Acadia 2007?


the exact spot ,huh?

first off the FSM book and alldata.com has that, and vast more.

but you asked.

first off its many parts, why not post symptoms first then ask for Vats.

not the immoblizer but just theft

this is CDC system and is not VATS

the compenents are: as follows:

The content theft deterrent (CTD) system, when armed, is designed to deter vehicle content theft by pulsing the horns and exterior lamps for approximately 30 seconds when an unauthorized vehicle entry is detected. However, the CTD System does not affect engine starting.

An unauthorized entry can be any of the following with the CTD System armed:




  • When the liftgate or liftglass has been opened without the use of the keyless entry system or without first being unlocked.


  • When any door is opened without first being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter.


  • When the driver door is opened without being first unlocked using the driver door cylinder.


The components of the system are:




  • The body control module


  • The door ajar switches


  • The driver door key cylinder switch


  • The liftgate/liftglass ajar switch

Need the wiring schematics for a 2001 oldsmobile aurora


There are several computer modules involved in your antitheft and security system.
There is the Driver's door module, the right front door module, the right rear door module, the left rear door module, the dash integration unit, the rear integration unit, the instrument panel cluster, the theft deterrent module, the theft deterrent exciter module, the body control module and the powertrain control module. These are all networked together to form the perimeter security and anti-theft system.

Any problems you may be having with this system should be properly diagnosed. Diagnosis of this system must BEGIN with a complete scan of the onboard computer network so that fault codes can be retrieved. and the computer data checked and verified. This is the only way to correctly determine which part of the system is malfunctioning.

Wiring schematics are not designed to give you the location of these components. They only show the wiring connections that are made between them.

What exactly are you trying to fix?
