SOURCE: My 2001 Aurora Idles low. It kind of spudders and

Sounds like a vaccum problem, do you mean lean condition and I don't know what your talking about "piston sensor" there is no such thing, give me the engine code #
Open the hood and listen for a hissing sound, now move your hand over the area where you think the hissing is coming from, slowly feel around vaccum lines, don't get to close to moving parts, if nothing found, shut down thw engine and remove the intake hose to the throttle body (looks like a small carborator,) it will look like a round metal circle, in that section spray carborator cleaner into the IAC (idle air control, it's a small mechined cut out onside the throttle body) the car might be a little hard to start at first, please send me the engine codes.

The check engine light had absolutely nothing to do with the security system - it was lit because the ECM had detected a malfunction with one of the sensors.
The shop must put an old style code reader and read the error codes that are stored in the ECM - they will tell you what is wrong with the engine. The codes should not be reseted unless the fault that caused them has been fixed. You should use another shop than the shop you have used now, they appear to be staffed by incompetents
The bypass must be redone properly - read this and follow their advices.
For a temporary fix follow this

2001 old aurora replace radiator

With a 4.0-remove the air filter housing and unbolt the ECM (located under the air housing). I did not unbolt the harness connector to the ECM, I just moved to out of the way, but if you do decide to remove it, disconnect the battery first. Remove the rubber cover above the radiator, and unbolt the brackets above the radiator. Remove the headlights (both sides) to gain access to the bolts that hold the AC condenser to the radiator, then remove the lower air dam. Drain the radiator (drain plug is on the lower corner, driver side), it is somewhat easier if you remove the air intake grill on that side which is held in place by two screws. Unbolt the bolts that hold the radiator in place to the radiator frame, then unhook the top and bottom radiator hoses at the clamps. Unhook the harnesses from the fan radiators, and lift out the assemblies as a unit, it is a tight fit. From another user on Fixya.
