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.

How do I disable passtime device on 05 Ford Taurus SE


you cant disable the device on the vehicle, by doing so can be illegal depending on your location. If the vehicle is paid off and you no longer owe the dealer or financial institution any money, take the vehicle to the dealer where you purchased the vehicle and have them remove it, is the best advice I could give

2002 impala intermitenly wont start


I would clean the battery connecters or possibly change them. How old is the battery? sometimes when battery get old, they have enough juice to crank the motor but not enough to start it..But then again, if it doesn't crank at all sometimes, it could certainly be a bad or loose battery terminals..Start with this since its the simplest and easiest and could very well be your problem. hope this helps

We own a 2000 GMC Jimmy, and it won't start. It


it sounds like they may have installed the passtime on it incorrectly. I would contact the dealer that installed the passtime system on there. Also they may have inadvertantly disabled it, you may need to contact them for a new code (if it is the passtime that rquires a code). The noise you hear through the speakers is more than likley due to them not grounding something properly.

Disabling PassTime device on 03 Ford F150


Find the passtime device , it's usually under the dash near the ignition switch. You can trace it by following the wire from the remote eye. There are 5 wires with a plug connector plugged into the device. Leave the red, pink and black wires alone. The blue wire comes from your ignition switch and goes to a relay switch inside the device. The purple wire comes from that switch to your starter.
Leave them cut from the device, but solder, (or connect in some manner) them together so that the passtime device is bypassed. Then your starter will get power when you turn the key. That's all there is to it.
the passtime device will still appear to be functioning. It will beep and take codes from the remote, but regardless of whether it is timed out or not your starter will still get power.

**IMPORTANT NOTICE**

It should be noted that the passtime system is property of the dealership and removal of this device may violate your contract with the dealership and in some states is a punishable offense.

Radio never has worked since we bought it has passtime


The Passtime has no effect on the radio. All the Passtime does is inhibit the starter. You can take the Passtime out by cutting the blue wire and the purple wire (that come out of the Passtime box) now you will have a blue wire and a purple wire that go to the car. Strip the ends and connect the blue wire and the purple wire together. You can either disconnect or cut all the other wires that come out of the Passtime box. If you cut the wires make sure you tape the ends of the wires so that they don't touch any metal and short out, blowing a fuse.

As for the radio you might want to remove the radio to make sure that it is plugged in. I've seen alot of times when someone sells or trades in their car they take out their "COOL" stereo and since they cut the plug for the original radio off so they could wire in the "COOL" one, they just put the original one in the dash not plugged in. Hope this is helpful.
