Question about Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

My 1999 Chevy Lumina will not start. The mechanic has tried to reset the Anti theft device but it will not work. He suggest I get a new theft device. The cost is 350 plus labor. The car is 10 years old so I was wondering if there is a way to disable the theft system instead of replaceing it?

Right--is the problem at the ignition switch? The method at http://vats.likeabigdog.com/ bypasses the steering column. I have used this method successfully. All you need is a few resistors, an ohmmeter, and a soldering gun/iron. A complete bypass of the system is much more complicated, but there is a guy that sells a kit. I don't remember who he is, but I found him by googling.

1999 Chevy Lumina won't turn over...new battery


If your lumina has a Pass II key, it may well be the ignition lock cylinder on the steering column. The car key has a resistor staked on the sides of it which is read by the theft deterent module. The theft deterent module issues a command to the ignition relay and the fuel injectors when it reads a correct resistance from the key. If the lock cylinder is damage( broken wire) ect. the theft deterent module will not be able to read the key. Unfortunately, if you have a Lumina with a solid shroud around the steering column, the dealer will charge you $700-$1200 to replace the cylinder.
Good luck
