Question about Pontiac Firebird
1992 Firebird. How to bypass VATS system. Security light continues to come on and car won't start.
This is difficult because it's part of anti theft system , anyways this gismo works by a tiny chip imbedded into key , if you don't get a good "chip" car don't start , if your sure you got a good key/chip combo then clean the key hole contacts with spray electronic cleaner , most lock shops can help with the chip/key combo if thats dammaged

I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

built into the pcm.....replace the key lock cylinder....get a new key with the same code as your old one and cut it to the gold key you get with the key lock cylinder

I Have A Seville 1990, When That Happen To Me I Got The Inginion
Replaced Problem Solved. What Is Happening Is Your Key Has A Chip And That Chip Is A Resister And When The Valve Is Not Sented To The Computer It Disengages the Fuel Pump And Than Tells You To Wait. Soon All That Will Happen Is You Will Get The Wait 3 Mins And It Will Never Start, A Good Locksmith Can Take Care Of This For You And That Will Save You Some Money. Cause If You Go To The Dealer Ouch They Will Hit You Up. But I Asure This Is How It Will Happen Cause It Is How It Happen To Me
And Sorry There Is No By Passing The Computer

On a 2003 Chevy Maibu the theft system light comes on and blinks when the system is triggered. The car will not start and the fuel pump cuts out. You must turn key to on and have all doors closed. Keep the key to on for 10 mins til theft light turns solid and then disappears. Then turn key to start and it should fire up.
