Go to a dealer with VIN and proof of ownership and see if they can get key and chip codes.

92 firebird wont crank, tried everything nothing


It could still be the security system. The resistors only bypass the key and ignition. If your Theft Deterrent Module is bad, the security light may not turn on, and the car will not start. You can bypass this.

Value of lost key to use a bypass module


I would get an Ignition switch with key from the junkyard and just replace it. You can get the replacement instructions out of a Haynes manual

1994 pontaic firebird wont start security light comes on blinking


This is a problem in your antitheft system. The security light is only for this system. You will need a new key, ignition, or TDM. (THEFT DETERRENT MODULE) The hard part is determining which of these is the problem. You can also bypass this system and use the existing parts. You only bypass the security feature.

I have a 1991 Firebird and lost the key, i had a key made from the dealer and the dealer could not find the vats key code said it didnt have one, so he cut a key to the specs provided by gm and the key...


You can bypass the vats rather easily. You can also try buffing that key down a little bit. As with any key, sometimes they are cut too sharp and need to be filed or buffed down a little to mimic normal wear and tear. Here is a link on the Vats security system.

The security light is flashing and the car wont start how do i fix it


May have a fault in the VATS. Most likely the wires that come from the ignition lock are broke. That is the weak link of the VATS.
Need to measure the resistance of the pelet n your key and basically add that value of resistors to the wire for the lock cylinder at the bottom of the column where they come out.
If you do a search for "VATS bypass" you should find diagrams of how to do this. (This is mistakenly refered to a VATS bypass while it really is not a bypass. The Pass Key module always stays in play. It just bypasses the weak link in the system.)

I have lost my keys to my 1991 pontiac firebird my key has the chip in it for the anti thft system is the a way to bypass the security system so I can replace the lock with a standard ingition lock


there is a way I've seen it done but never have done it myself. That "chip" is like a resistor for the anti theft system. When I asked the guy how he bypasses it, he stated, "I find the correct resistance needed, then add a resistor in line so that it bypasses the ignition switch." This way the orginal keys will work even if they don't have the "chip." Now the vechile he did that on he still had the key with the chip. The chip or ignition cylinder wasn't contacting each other so it would sometimes run and sometimes wouldn't. So I don't know if he tested the key or if there is a different way. I know this isn't much help but I KNOW it can be done.

How do you bypass security system on 97 firebird. If the security light is on the car will not start i need to know how to bypass this. i already had another key made for it that dosent work


HI, PROBLEM AREA ON A WIDE RANGE OF "GM" CARS WHAT IT IS IS THAT YOUR PASSLOCK SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED WHICH MEANS THAT FUEL IS SHUT OFF TO THE ENGINE THEIR IS ONE WAY TO GET AROUND THIS BUT THE PART NEEDS REPLACED YOU NEED A NEW INGITION LOCK CYLINDER THIS HAS THE SENSOR BUILT INTO IT ANYWAYS GET IN CAR TRY AND START IT IT MAY OR MAY NOT ATTEMPT TO FIRE AT THIS POINT LEAVE THE KEY IN THE RUN POSITION AND YOU MUST!!!!!!!!! LEAVE IT IN THE RUN POS. FOR APPROX. 10 MINUTES WATCH THE DASH THE THEFT OR SERCURITY LITE WILL BE FLASHING WHAT THIS WILL DO IS THE BODY CONTROL MODULE LOST MEMORY OF YOUR KEY AND HAS TO RELEARN IT AFTER AFTER 10 OR SO MINS. THE LITE WILL REMAIN ON STEADY MEANING NOT BLINKING ANYMORE TURN KEY OFF THEN TRY TO START CAR.. THIS IS NOT A FIX YOU MUST REPLACE PASSLOCK SENSOR.....

PS: HOPE THIS HELPS, AFFORDABLE AUTO SERVICE 724-575-2821..

Wont start with the key


Yes the security system is doing its job it has shut off the fuel and ignition. Try disconnecting the battery for an hour or so to get it to reset. Good luck. Dont forget to rate.
