Hello! Behind the instrument panel just to the left of the steering column is the location of the Theft Deterrent Relay...Pull the relay...The wire colors on the relay socket are...Purple...Yellow/Black...And 2 Yellows...Cut the two Yellow wires free of the socket and splice them together (solder)...The Theft Deterrent System is now permanently bypassed.

How do u disable a 94 cadillac deville anti theft system


U can bypass it (called the VATS system) but not fully disable it, what is done mimics the key code to fool the VATS module into sending a OK to start signal to the fuel injection computer (called the ECM). go to the web link below for instructions on the bypass.

Locating VATS module under dash


It is located above th glove box you will need to take the upper dash pad off and the glove box asbly out and the module is attached to the dash reinforcement at the top of the glove box vats modules very rarely go bad it could be the ing lock cylinder ck for contanuity of the 2 wires at the bottom of the steering column in the orange insulation with the key in the lock cylinder and ohm meter across the 2 wires you should get an ohm reading then turn the lock cylinder and if the wiring goes to open the wires are broken and the lock cylinder needs to be replaced.

It does not read the key so the car does not crank it does not even try to crank


either the contacts just inside the ignition that read the VATS chip are bad or to worn to read the key, requiring the replacement of the ignition or the resistor in the key itself is bad or to worn to work, if you have another key try that. if that doesn't work as a last effort before ign replacement have the key duplicated onto new key with the proper value VATS number, if that doesn't. work rep ign. if a light on the dash comes on when you turn the key, the computer is not recognizing the key

Car wont start, has a new starter everything comes on in and outside the car we turn the key and nothing happens


First thing,Your vehicle has a VATS Anti-Theft system which will shut down the starter if the vehicle doesn't read the key! VATS anti-theft systems are bad to get faulty connections between the key and ignition lock cylinder!
1. Take a pencil eraser and clean the ends of the key pellet.(Small black square with brass connections)
2.Look inside of Ignition rumbler and you should see 2 brass connection brushes just inside the opening
Clean them with some plastic safe contact cleaner.
Let's see if that fixes the problem!
Also if you have a spar key,Try it!

If the above doesn't work then I'd move on to the starter interrupt solenoid under the hood somewhere around the power distribution center and battery and go from there!

Hope this helps and have a Great Day! GMJ

93 pontiac bonneville security light stays on and car won't start.


You can easily bypass the entire VATS system. There is a clear write-up here on this website:http://newrockies.ca. This was the only thing that saved my 94 Park Avenue with the same security system.

Car starts and then dies


that means that your fuel pressure isnt high enough to run check fuel pressure should be 40lbs on crank mode and little lower in run mode , you might check fuel filter

2002 Camaro, Security dash light stays on


a few questions to start have you had you vehicle battery replaced lately, or had an after market security/remote starter installed. the vats system is a very touchy system. i run into it alot at best buy. i am the senior car tech there. the second answer you read is the easiest i would just get the bypass module. what is happening is either the factory security system is "bugging out" or sometimes but rare if the resistor in the key or contact point in the tumbler is getting worn out or not making good contact throwing off the ohm reading a bit throwing the vats off. you are lucky if it was working it should engage a starter kill and cut power to the fuel pump which as i have seen happen before can just happen out of the blue. either get a vats bypass or send your computer out to someone who reprograms cumputers after mods have been done to set up the computer to eliminate the vats while your there you can also have different things changed like speed limiter spark curves tweek it for perfomance the sky is the limit but usually runs about two hundred if you have anyother questions i have been restoring and moding 3rd and 4th gens for about ten years now shot me an email to weeden_john@hotmail.con
