    My car won't start and it is the pass key fault problem. Not only the key I use but also the spare original as well will not work. When I get back home I am going to try your solution. I have cleaned the keys with alcohol and also "rubbed" them for good luck (that seemed to work in the past) which was to no avail. The dealership said it has to get towed in and it is probably in the steering column which will need major surgergy. However, I am flat broke with no job and really frustrated. I did not try WD40 in the ignition and on the keys. Keeping my fingers crossed. Glad I saw this.

I have a 96 Caprice and this has happened to me twice now. There are two wires that are behind the ignition (where the key goes) one or both of the wires have more thsn likely broken. I was told that the little chip in the key may have been bad so I had a new key made, didn't solve the problem!! Come to find out there was a guy in my area that rebuilds steering colums and ingnitions when there's a problem or someone tried to steal the vehicle. So I live in Dayton, Ohio hopefully your in the area probably not but try to find someone who works on cars in your area and have them take your ingnition out, and i'm about 90% sure that that is your problem. Hope it works for you. Kevin

Is this the original key and it just stopped working?
What I have done on GM products in the past is to clean the key with WD40. Also spray WD40 into the ignition lock, and slide the key in and out. Repeat this a few times. That should clean the contact points in the switch.

The pass key fault light blinking and my car won't started in my 95 chevy caprise does that mean its something wrong with the key?


did you get a new key made without the chip? The car will not run without the chip in the key. Could be a bad chip in the key itself. Get a replacement where they sell keys with a key chip identifier.

Keypass fault wont let my 95 caprice classic start


your resistor chip on your VATS key make look fine but there are also contacts just inside your key way on your ignition that work with your key to make the connection to the cars computer allowing it to read the resistors value and if it matches, allows to car to start, if it does not make proper contact some time, it will not read the key and car will not start, probably you need to have the ignition replaced.......

NO, check oil pressure module. Bad module (red ligh of check engine on) or a bad cable can interrupt the fuel pump voltage. This is a security to device to induce car to turn off when the oil pressure drop near 0. and to protect the wholee engine
