Let me be a little more specific about the steering column security system, I was stranded for half a day two years ago. The car would start for half a second and die. When I finally got it to the d


1999 GMC Safari is equipped with a PassLock* system. It is designed to disable engine starting unless the ignition lock cylinder rotates correctly when the proper key is installed. The system is similar in concept to the PassKey* system. However, it eliminates the need for a key-mounted resistor pellet.
The components of the PassLock* system are as follows:
> The ignition lock cylinder
> The ignition switch
> The PassLock* sensor
> The PassLock* module
> The security indicator
> The Vehicle Control Module (VCM)

If any of the components (with the exception of the security indicator) is replaced, the PassLock* sytem must be reprogramed before engine start will be enabled.

When the system malfunctions, it is necessary to retrieve fault codes from the VCM to correctly determine which part of the system is causing the problem.

The car sat up awhile. The battery died. We replaced the battery but the car still won't start. Everything comes on. The starter was tested and it was fine. What is the problem?


THERE ARE MANY POSSIBLE CONDITIONS THAT COULD PREVENT YOURCAR FROM STARTING. 1. NUTERAL SAFETY SWITCH IF THE CAR HAS AN AUTOMATICTRANSMISSION. 2. CLUTCH POSITION SWITCH IF THE CAR HAS A MANUAL TRANSMISSION.3. BRAKE PEDAL SWITCH. MANY NEWER VEHICLES HAVE A SWITCH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL ANDIF THE PEDAL IS NOT DEPRESSED WHILE TRYING TO START THE CAR, THE CAR WON'TSTART. ANOTHER POSSIBLILITY IS THE SECURITY SYSTEM. DOES THE CAR HAVE ASECURITY CHIP IN THE KEY? THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON REASONS THAT A CARWON'T START FOR NO APPARENT REASON. HOPE THIS HELPS.

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

My security system coms on for no apparent reason


The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it gets worse till the car won't start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue with the same system.

Security system for automobile


u can't just clip the wire however you can install a resistor that equals the value of the key into the anti-theft module to bypass it.

My security light comes on and i can't start my car


your car security system can not be disable but it can be bypass

but firts on these models it is the pass key the problem

on your key to strt the car you have a little round black thing with a little metal contact this is a resistance that is in your key when you put it in the hole to start your car it mesure the ressistance
and the you can start your car

the usual problem with this system is that in the ignition key lock cylinder there are two wire
and usualy one of the two wire just cut so i would remouve the stearing wheel and get that wire fix

hope that will help you !!!

the way to bypass the system is easy but you need to realy know what you will be doing

first you mesure the ressistance in the key in (ohm) and second get a ressistance the same value from any places that sells electronics

after you will find in your car the passkey decoder module (behind right side of i/p)
the two wires that come out of the box (B7 ppl/wht and B8 wht/blk)
cut these two wires and weld the ressistance in bettwen
this way you won t have to take your stearing appart
and your system will be bypass for ever

great day to you
