Security fuse 1999 pontiac bonneville


Need a little more info . Security fuse ????? Do you mean anti-theft ? The SECURITY light is lit on the instrument cluster ? Content theft or vehicle theft ?
Vehicle Theft Deterrent (VTD) Description
Ignition Key
The ignition key for vehicles which are equipped with the PASS-Key® II system consists of the following components:
• A typical square ignition key blank
• A resistor pellet
The PASS-Key® II ignition key has the same mechanical key cuts as a non-PASS-Key® II ignition key. You can not service the key blank and resistor pellet separately. There are 15 different ignition key assemblies, each with a different key pellet resistance value.
When you service the PASS-Key® II system, obtain all ignition keys. Verify the proper key code values withJ 35628-A Interrogator.
Steering Column (Ignition) Lock Cylinder
The steering column (ignition) lock cylinder that is used with the PASS-Key® II system contains a set of electrical terminals. The terminals are used to contact the resistor in the ignition key.
The wire routing for the contacts inside the steering column is very critical. When you service the lock cylinder, maintain proper wire routing.
When you replace a steering column lock cylinder, make new keys. The new keys must match the following items:
• The PASS-Key® II code of the PASS-Key® II system
• The mechanical cut of the new steering column (ignition) lock cylinder.


Measure the resistance of the pellet on the key , go to radio shack an buy a resistor of same value an solder into wiring harness .

pulling fuse won't work , power's the PCM as well . Plus software in the PCM won't let it start if it doesn't see input signal from the Theft deterrent module .Take an get it fix right .

The steering wheel is locked because the ignition is also locked, the ignition is broken so I have alternate way of starting car, how do I unlock it without turning the ignition


Most ignition switches are in the same barrel as the locking mechanism so you would need to remove the ignition off the steering column in order to release the lock.usually gain access by removing cowling that surrounds internal steering column.bear in mind some locks on certain models need to remain in situ as they have micro switch to immobilize ignition once off the column.if you replace lock make sure you get the keys that go with it.even then you may have to get auto locksmith to program ecu to accept new lock and code.

2000 suburban was stolen replaced ignition cylinder it turns over but no start


Do you have a security light lit or flashing on the Instrument cluster ?
The theft deterrent system has been incorporated into the body control module (BCM). The theft deterrent is provided in order to prevent the vehicle operation if the correct key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The ignition key turns the lock cylinder. The cylinder rotation produces an analog voltage code in the passlock?"¢ sensor. This voltage code is received by the BCM. The BCM compares the voltage code to the previousely learned voltage code. If the codes match, a class 2 message is sent from the BCM to the powertrain control module (PCM)/vehicle control module (VCM). The message enables the fuel injectors.
The design of the passlock?"¢ system is to prevent vehicle theft by disabling the engine unless the ignition lock cylinder rotates properly by engaging the correct ignition key. The system is similar in concept to the passkey system. However, the passlock?"¢ system eliminates the need for a key mounted resistor pellet. The components of the passlock?"¢ system are as follows:
?€¢
The ignition lock cylinder


?€¢
The ignition switch


?€¢
The passlock?"¢ sensor


?€¢
The Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The security telltale


?€¢
The vehicle/powertrain control module (VCM/PCM)


The ignition lock cylinder is located at the upper right side of the steering column. The Passlock?"¢ sensor is in the steering column. The Passlock?"¢ sensor is separate from the key and lock cylinder. The key and the lock cylinder work together in order to determine if the proper ignition key was used to start the vehicle.
In the event of an open Class 2 serial data line between the BCM and the VCM/PCM, the vehicle will become fail-enabled if the VCM/PCM has already received the password from the BCM for that ignition cycle (the engine is running). In this event, the following conditions occur:
?€¢
The security telltale will be ON continuously.


?€¢
The VCM/PCM will become fail-enabled for future ignition cycles.

If a failure in the Class 2 serial data line occurs before the ignition cycle, when the VCM/PCM is not fail-enabled, the following conditions occur:
?€¢
The VCM/PCM will never receive a valid password in order to enable the fuel injectors.


?€¢
The vehicle will not start.


The lock cylinder and the visible key insert portion of the ignition switch are located at the upper right side of the steering column. The electrical switching portion of the assembly is separate from the key and lock cylinder. The electrical switch portion is hidden inside the steering column. The electrical switch portion and the key and lock cylinder synchronize and work in conjunction through the action of the mechanical assembly between the 2 parts.
Passlock?"¢ Sensor
The passlock?"¢ sensor is inside the upper right side of the steering column. The passlock?"¢ sensor contains 2 hall effect sensors. The tamper hall effect sensor is on the top. The security hall effect sensor is under the tamper hall effect sensor. Both of the hall effect sensors monitor the magnet of the lock cylinder through an opening. The tamper hall effect sensor is physically placed on top of the security hall effect sensor. This arrangement enables the tamper hall effect sensor to engage first if an intruder attempts to bypass the passlock?"¢ sensor by placing a large magnet around that area of the steering column. There is a tamper resistor inside the passlock?"¢ sensor in order to help prevent tamper to the system. Passlock?"¢ equipped vehicles have a selection of 10 different security resistors ranging from 0.5K ohms up to 13.6K ohms. Installing one of the security resistors inside the passlock?"¢ sensor will generate a unique passlock?"¢ code. All 10 combinations of the passlock?"¢ sensor have the same part number. However, you cannot simply replace the passlock?"¢ sensor and expect the system to operate properly. Always start by performing the Diagnostic System Check first and following the instructions.
SECURITY Telltale
The SECURITY telltale appears on the message center inside the instrument cluster. If the SECURITY telltale flashes or if the SECURITY telltale lights continuously during the vehicle operation, refer to the system diagnosis.
Fuel Lockout Cycle
The Passlock?"¢ system has a lockout cycle of approximately 10 minutes. Once the vehicle is in the lockout cycle, the vehicle remains in the lockout cycle for 10 minutes, even if the ignition switch is turned from the RUN position to the OFF position.
The Passlock?"¢ system uses the lockout cycle in order to synchronize all of the Passlock?"¢ components when any Passlock?"¢ related part is changed. The Passlock?"¢ system requires 3 consecutive lockout cycles in order to complete the 30 minute learn procedure for a changed component.

99 mercury cougar I lost my key. I replaced my steering column with another steering column with key. My car wont start so what do I do next.


The problem is with the factory security system; you'll need to reset the security code matching between the security system and the code on your keys that came with the new column.

Does the pcm or ecm have a skim module secret code, if a 2002 jeep wrangler did not have the theft module installed at the factory,If not how does the dealership get a code to program the Ign. immobil


great question, wana Read the shop manual for free, ?
it answers all this, its a rolling encrypted secret code.
bad idea
says it all, YOU DID.
now the system sees you hacking,
and bricks it.
there is only 1 fix. dealer time. or a shop with same tools.

they must be all married or they self brick
its also law here in use, DOT bs, rules.
not jeeps fault < GOV BS.

page 8e-1 , on, read. in jeep SM.

When a PCM (JTEC) and the SKIM are replaced
at the same time, perform the following steps in
order:
(1) Program the new PCM (JTEC).
(2) Program the new SKIM.
(3) Replace all ignition keys and program them to
the new SKIM.
PROGRAMMING THE PCM (JTEC)
The SKIS Secret Key is an ID code that is unique
to each SKIM. This code is programmed and stored
in the SKIM, the PCM, and the ignition key transponder
chip(s). When replacing the PCM, it is necessary
to program the secret key into the new PCM
using the DRBIIIt scan tool. Perform the following
steps to program the secret key into the PCM.
(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position
(transmission in Park/Neutral).
(2) Use the DRBIIIt and select THEFT ALARM,
SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
(3) Select PCM REPLACED (GAS ENGINE).
(4) Enter secured access mode by entering the
vehicle four-digit PIN.
(5) Select ENTER to update PCM VIN.
NOTE: If three attempts are made to enter secured
access mode using an incorrect PIN, secured
access mode will be locked out for one hour. To
exit this lockout mode, turn the ignition switch to
the ON position for one hour, then enter the correct
PIN. (Ensure all accessories are turned off. Also
monitor the battery state and connect a battery
charger if necessary).
(6) Press ENTER to transfer the secret key (the
SKIM will send the secret key to the PCM).

(7) Press PAGE BACK to get to the Select System
menu and select ENGINE, MISCELLANEOUS, and
SRI MEMORY CHECK.
(8) The DRBIIIt will ask, “Is odometer reading
between XX and XX?” Select the YES or NO button
on the DRBIIIt. If NO is selected, the DRBIIIt will
read, “Enter Odometer Reading (From I.P. odometer)”.
Enter the odometer reading from the instrument
cluster and press ENTER.
PROGRAMMING THE SKIM
(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position
(transmission in Park/Neutral).
(2) Use the DRBIIIt and select THEFT ALARM,
SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
(3) Select PCM REPLACED (GAS ENGINE).
(4) Program the vehicle four-digit PIN into SKIM.
(5) Select COUNTRY CODE and enter the correct
country.
NOTE: Be sure to enter the correct country code. If
the incorrect country code is programmed into
SKIM, it cannot be changed and the SKIM must be
replaced.
(6) Select YES to update VIN (the SKIM will learn
the VIN from the PCM).
(7) Press ENTER to transfer the secret key (the
PCM will send the secret key to the SKIM).
(8) Program ignition keys to the SKIM.
NOTE: If the PCM and the SKIM are replaced at the
same time, all vehicle ignition keys will need to be
replaced and programmed to the new SKIM.
PROGRAMMING IGNITION KEYS TO THE SKIM
(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position
(transmission in Park/Neutral).
(2) Use the DRBIIIt and select THEFT ALARM,
SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
(3) Select PROGRAM IGNITION KEY’S.
(4) Enter secured access mode by entering the
vehicle four-digit PIN.
NOTE: A maximum of eight keys can be learned to
each SKIM. Once a key is learned to a SKIM it (the
key) cannot be transferred to another vehicle.
(5) Obtain ignition keys to be programmed from
the customer (8 keys maximum).
(6) Using the DRBIIIt, erase all ignition keys by
selecting MISCELLANEOUS, and ERASE ALL CURRENT
IGN. KEYS.
(7) Program all of the ignition keys.
If ignition key programming is unsuccessful, the
DRBIIIt will display one of the following messages:
² Programming Not Attempted - The DRBIIIt
attempts to read the programmed key status and
there are no keys programmed into SKIM memory.
² Programming Key Failed (Possible Used
Key From Wrong Vehicle) - SKIM is unable to program
an ignition key transponder due to one of the
following:
² The ignition key transponder is faulty.
² The ignition key transponder is or has been
already programmed to another vehicle.
² 8 Keys Already Learned, Programming Not
Done - The SKIM transponder ID memory is full.
² Learned Key In Ignition - The ID for the ignition
key transponder currently in the ignition lock
cylinder is already programmed in SKIM memory.
end quote.

Will not start


The Passive Anti-Thft System (PATS) in your vehicle prevents the vehicle from being started with the wrong key. Even if the key is mechanically able to turn the ignition lock cylinder, the digital signal from the key must be programmed so the PATS will accept the signal from the new key.
You have a couple of choices. You can change the lock cylinder out with the lock cylinder from the original steering column so the original keys can be used. You can remove the lock cylinder from the new column and have a locksmith re-key the lock cylinder to accept the original keys, then reinstall it into the new steering column. Or you can take the entire vehicle to a professional auto service facility that has the computer equipment necessary to reprogram your computer to accept the new keys.

I have a 1995 camaro. it will not start. i ran a jumper wire to the solenoid and turned the key on. it starts but will only run for about 5 seconds? it has a new ignition with security key


Did the dealer install the new ignition?. If so, then he would also have to replace the sensor that goes with it which is attached to the steering column, Then he would have to reprogram the on-board computer to accept the new security code. Just changing the ignition and key won;t work. Check out this website for more informaiton: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass.

How do I replace my ignition switch on my 1985 audi coupe gt?


Hi!!

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.

NOTE
On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.
On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash


5e9852e.gif
The ignition switch is operated by the key switch.

To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.
Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!
