SOURCE: gm passlock security system how to disable

Wiring diagrams can be found online, however i believe you can re-learn the key by leaving it inside the ignition tumblen and switch it to accesory. Then disconnect the b attery for about ten minutes and then try starting the car without taking the key out.

If I put a new ignition switch in a 97 camero does the security system need to be reprogrammed?

Yes and no. The vats system is not reprogramable like the newer passlock and passkey systems. It must be replaced with a original GM part. No after market. If not, the antitheft system can't pass on the correct signal from the key to the theft deterrent module, and the antitheft system will shut off the starter and/or the fuel injectors. It IS possible to bypass this system. This link explains.

I have a 2000 monte carlo ss 3800 series. Sometimes the security light comes on and car will not start. When security light is not on, car always starts.Any ideas?

The passlock is having issues try this procedure and see if it helps. If it does not the passlock and ignition tumbler may need replaced.

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

Passkey light flashing

Hello: Does the truck start? If it does it means there is a problem with pass-lock and one of these days it may quit starting. Best to find out what code is setting, not all gernic scanners can read it. GM scanner will.

Hi, does the security light flash? Maybe a problem with your Passlock system. See the Passlock section of this post:
