Question about Cars & Trucks
From then on when you go in to turn the key to start the vehicle all it does it click. Yet the starter if you use a hand held switch, the starter will turn over perfectly but will not fire. So I have been told that the security system has not been violated so it's not that, but it does do this fuse box by kick panel. When you check fuses with a test probe light on fuse 19 and 25 both are registering low meter readings and as you ground your test light to body of van, to check fuses, the starter will crank. It will do this until it stops like it got too hot. After it has cooled off it can be done again. I have changed the ignition switch twice and still won't run.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: I have a 95 firebird.
It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners than thieves. Here is how you save your car
1st trick, Try a spare key that is newer or used less. The pins wear down and so do the keys causing security fail. 2nd trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my regal for more than a year. If its shutting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix... If anything on this page helps you, please remember to comment or give me a thumbs up on the myfixya sight so i can have a better rating to help more people on this. Thanks
Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.
Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did to fix the problem. They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere from 600-1000 bucks. If you do buy this, please purchase it thru this link. The cost is the same, but i get credit for the sale and im trying to earn my money back, as you will be able to do if you buy fron NewRockies and join the free affiliate program. Thanks
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 ----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites.
It works for:
Any GM or Isuzu Vehicle with VATS or PASSKey or PASSLock security systems.
If your car has the chip in the key or in the lock cylinder, then you can save it with this Full Bypass.

SOURCE: Cooling fans won't run on high.
The diagram is a little hard to follow, but it looks like on the high fan relay there are 5 circuits like on the hi-low relay.
Pin 86 is power for the magnet, 85 is the ground signal from the module. The module grounds the magnet to move the contacts.
Pin 30 goes to the fan and pin 87 goes to a 50amp fuse.
Pin 87A is a jumper between the two relays.
The fan motor gets power from three different sources and is grounded to the car. The other two wires are return signals to the module. Kind of like a three way light switch in a house.
On the fan control relay, pins 30 and 85 are hot, pin 87 goes to the fan motor, and pin 86 is grounded by the module.
I can send you the diagram in a separate message if you need to see it.
