I priceist A 97 acheive for 100 dollers to race in. The person said that the car ran fine untill it just died. Called some of my friends they looked at it and say that the passlock sensor was active. My question is can I bypass this.Because the sensor is 341.00 dollers and i'm just going to tear up this car racing. I would rather not spend that money on just starting it when I could use it somewhere else.Could you telll me how to By pass this sensor please. Thank you

Seems to me that I've run across this problem 3 or 4 times over the years on different cars. Problem usually comes down to either fuel system, electrical system (including sensors), or the coolant system (including sensors). I ran into this most recently on an '89 Escort. Wound up replacing fuel pump relay, ignition relay, TPS sensor, ignition module, coolant temp switch, coolant pump (and timing belt while I was in there). Fixed a couple of engine grounds and a couple of misc things. Point is that there is probably more than one item at fault.
does it run fine until u put it drive if so ur torque converter is locking up and stahling the engine on this car only the torque is electric controlled only... unplug the wiring on the transmission u should be fine
Hello: Your car does NOT use a key with a chip, (That is the pass-key system) you car has pass-lock. If you have a security problem you have to replace the whole lock cylinder assembly also the key if it is worn bad.
We had a problem like this in our 97 Camaro with the V6. It would run fine until my wife went somewhere with it, parked it and then wouldn't restart. When it would sit for about an hour then it would start again. It turned out to be the crank position sensor, when the electronic part of it got hot enough it couldn't sense correctly and tell the computer how to time the spark. All it would do is crank without firing. So once we had that sensor replaced it ran good again. Good luck I hope this helps! I'm on to the next problem it's having, an occasional battery drain and a radio and electric windows that die when they want to and come back later. BuzzieTN
If the car starts and dies right away you may have a pass key sensor fault.
Try to start the car,if the car dies right away just leave the key on and watch the security light in the insturment panel,if it begins to blink leave the key on until it stops blinking (apx 10 mins.) this will reprogram the pass lock to the pcm and may solve all your problems.if the car continues to die after running a min or so then you may have other faults,or if the car dies right after start the pass lock sensor may need to be replaced.
Unfortunately, there is no easy solution here. I had the same problem with my race car. I swapped a 96 2.2 into my 97 racecar and ended up having to also swap the engine wiring harness, computer, instrament cluster and pass module. The engine harness will bolt to the interior harness even though the wire colors are not the same. Just make sure you match the large yellow wire on the 96 harness to the large purple wire on the 97 harness. It sounds pretty complicated but it only took me maybe an hour to perform the swap. Now I'm back up and running and will be racing again this weekend.
