You could do that with a simple ohm meter !

    I was hoping the decoder Id # that came with module meant some thing thank you

    It just tells the resistance of the key pellet .

I was given a 99 oldsmobile aurora without the key. So after drilling out the ignition I need to either figure what the resistance is for this car or bypass the VATS. Any suggestions?


should have went to a dealer for a key cut by using the vin number --or bought a new ignition cylinder ---this is fixya a repair -fix it forum --not auto theft 101 we dont assist in hacking or by-passing Vehicle Anti-Theft systems

How to disable the vats security system on my 2001 oldsmobile alero?


you cant disable it, its a pass key system not a vats system (vats reads a resistance value in the key). The ignition cylinder has a sensor in it that measures a rotating resistance (then translates into a voltage reading) that the bcm reads to let the car know to start. Usually you can try and start the car, then the security light will start flashing - leave the key in the on position for ten minutes until the security light goes out. Then turn the key off, wait, then try and restart - they usually relearn the code after the first 10 minute try. Sometimes it takes three 10 minute cycles.

Need key code via vin number


Your dealer should be able to do this, however if you have a security system VAT, you will need the system checked so you can get the correct key blank. The chip on the key creates a certain amount of Ohms of resistance, that matches your security system. If you use the wrong one the car will not start. There are methods to by pass, however you need your old key, even if its broken to do.

I have a 92 Oldsmobile Toronado that was recently broken into and my igniton was broke. And now I can't start it. I can put the key in it and turn like usual but the information center is saying starting...


I believe that your key has a resistor chip. You will need to find the resistance of your chip. Once found, go to an electronics store and buy a resistor with the same value. Follow the two wires that go from the ign switch down the steering column , into a 2 wire plug into the ign module. Unplug the connector. Plug the resistor to the module. The module will read this value and allow you to start the car.

Bypassing 92 cadillac deville vats system


There are ways to bypass the system, but without knowing what the correct resistance in the chip is, its not going to be easy or cheap.
There are a dozen or so different chips, each with a different resistance. The resistance completes the circuit for the VATS system sensor. You can buy a trick box to wire into the circuit, or have the computer changed to skip the VATS signal.
As long as the computer you have now does not get the signal from the VATS the injectors will not work.

How do i get my 2000 saturn sl to start after installing a new ignition


Did you use the correct ignition switch lock cylinder for the key code you have? If not the security system is activated. You must measure the resistance of the wire in the shaft of the old key and then order it based on that which translates into a code number.

The VATS system has 15 possible ohmic variations in the key .One might use an ohm meter and measure the resistance in your key as this is simply a resistor producing an ohmic value which must match the resistance value the VATS module wants to see. There is a 2 wire key reader in the ignition cylinder that sends this signal to the VATS module looking for a match.One may surf the web and see ways to bypass VATS but I have never tried this and its is fairly sophisticated process which requires an accurate DVOM meter that reads OHMS

There are 2 factory alarms on your car...VATS is the one with the resistor pellet in the key. 1) make sure the key you are using is clean at the pellet, any dirt will incease the resistor value. 2) if you have an after market alarm, make sure its door lock output is the same as the vettes (+ ground, - ground, or relay) 3) if your cars is all factory stuff, your VATS module may be bad [the least likely). Suggest a bypass kit...search 'VATS values' and match the resistance with the value of your key 1-15. If your key has a super warn pellet, you can match the resistance value on your key to a guy on ebay 1-15, buy the key on ebay for $15 and have anyone cut it..or go to a dealer and drop $50. BTW --your starter kill delay should only be 5-8 minutes.
