You then have a problem there, because this vehicle has a the PASSLOCK II key based engine disabling system, and currently it is engaged. Even if you have the black keys, they too would have stopped working.

A bypass is required to circumvent. If left unchecked, it will lock down the fuel injector rail (as it has now), and you will need to tow it in to GM for evaluation, and resetting.

But, if you want to just remove this system from the equation entirelly,
I suggest the PLJX bypass kit to get around this issue.

This Passlock Bypass Module is designed to momentarilly allow the engine to remote start by sending a proper coded pulse to open the fuel rail passlock injector cut off circuit.

The output from an alarm/remote starter would then shut down the pulse, once it has detected the engine has engaged, and preserve the integrity of the passlock system. That is it's designed purpose.

However, in your case, this input wire on the PLJX module, instead of going to a momentary ground pulse from an alarm/remote starter, would go to a constant chassis ground, through the bypass module, grounding out the PASSLOCK. The PASSLOCK would then always be bypassed as long as that wire is chassis grounded.

Check this LINK like reference guide for other additional details.

Hope helps.

My lexus gx470 failed to start last week after driving fine to location. There was no response to turning key. All dash and controls worked and activated but no cranking of motor, no clicking, just...

First place I would check are the battery terminals. Remove them and clean the posts, re-attach and tighten them. You can buy a tool for cleaning the posts at your local auto store.

Battery dains when not running

The battery current draw may be caused by a few things, here are some to check: the most common is that a light stays on like the dome light, the brake l;ights may be staying on,aftermarket accessories can cause it as well, audio amplifiers or stereo equipment or aftermarket alarm systems, very common.

Truck stops running after i go over a bump in road no fuel

Read thru this link. Sometimes when the antitheft system starts to fail, it will immobilize the starter or injectors, often being misdiagnosed as a starter or fuel pump. Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY when this happens again.

92 dodge ram carger4x4 360 Driving down the road and accelerate it starts shaking and bogs right down like it misfirig but other times it will run fine

There is an external module that is secured from the interior of the Distributor. It would appear from your description, that this unit is staring to fail. The unit should be available Aftermarket, from Checkers, Auto Zone etc.
