The security system (VATS/Passkey) installed on these GM cars is anti-owner more than an anti-theft. There are 3 parts involved:

  1. The chip-key
  2. The lock cylinder
  3. The TDM (aka the brain of the system)
if any of these parts fails or is even slightly malfunctioning, the car stays stuck where you are and you only get a dealer asking you about 1,000$ to fix it. And all the 3 parts have a quite short lifespan. Way too many people got in this situation (including myself). I don't recommend any partial solution or any used parts as it would happen again way too soon to be acceptable and if it happens 100 miles from home (like it happened to me....) it's a big burden. I finally made it to save my beloved 94 Park Avenue (with the exact same system that is installed in your car) with a solution that I found on the internet and that bypasses the entire factory security system, all 3 pieces altogether and you can even remove the TDM at the end and use 99c keys without chip. The product I used is at http://newrockies.com and is still working perfectly after 5 years. Don't go to the dealer!

1989 Camaro RS starting problems. Will start when it wants to.Sometimes it will not do anything at all. But when it turns over, running very smooth. And then when I tunr it off,it will not start again....


if it starts when cold, but will not start hot, then it is a bad fuel injection system. if it is unpredictably intermittant, with no particular pattern, it may be corrosion on the battery cables/terminals (in need of cleaning), or your starter is beginning to fail.

Transmission for an 89' Camaro Rs ?


Definitely you can save by buying used. Check for local auto dismantlers in your area. Be sure to ask them what kind of mileage the car had on it when they pulled the tranny. Also replace filter and pan gasket while it's out.

Just take every cord connected to the positive side of the battery off for 10 seconds to allow the alarm to reset, then flip the little switch under the dash so the alarm won't activate again.
