Use the valet switch that most systems have and that will over ride it

98 chevy lumina wont start replaced starter and VATS relay only get click no crank what next?


Hey Todd how's it going ? How's the battery ? battery connections ? Are there any lights lit on the dash , security , check engine ? Because your getting a clicking there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! Take a volt meter on the 20 volt scale an put negative lead at the negative battery post , then take your positive lead an put it on s terminal small wire on the starter solenoid an have someone turn the key to start position , you should see battery voltage . If you see battery voltage there is nothing wrong with the theft deterrent relay ! or the crank circuit. You need to do a voltage drop test on the starting system ! I'm thinking possible battery cable ! Starter Voltage Drop . you do know that you replaced a starter for no good reason !

http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ Go to that link. You are exactly right. The engine swap has confused the anti theft security system. It can disable the starter and/or the injectors/fuel. There are ways to bypass these systems. You can do it yourself too. Ive personally done dozens of these bypasses, and they work great. Good luck

I have a 99 Chevy Lumina sedan with only 73,000 miles on it and it is driving me crazy. About once every 2 months it won't start. All of the dash lights come on and the radio works but it just won't...


OK, you should try using that new key again, and make sure it works sometimes like the other one does. Have you tried messing with the shifter when it doesn't start? Like maybe shifting to neutral and see if it will start from neutral? I'm attaching your wiring diagram. It is quite simple indicating only a few things can stop it from cranking.
I'm assuming when you say it wont start that it will not crank or even click. Do I have that right? If so, and assuming your new starter and ignition switch are good, only the wiring from the battery, the shifter interlock, the theft system, or the solenoid could be bad. Among these, the things that I have seen as intermittent failures are corroded battery terminals, shifter interlocks, and anti-theft systems.
Please try messing with the shifter and checking the battery terminals. I will do a little more research on your anti-theft system.
