    I found a post that mentioned to put a resister in the orange wires from the steering to bypass the resister in the key. Has anyone accomplished this or have additional into. TIA Stan

  • Stan Kline Dec 19, 2008

    I shall have to look and see if the resistor is there. I've had the car for 10 years [pruchased used]. I shall buy a resistor that matches the key resistor in case the switch is really going bad. If it will not start I'll try the resistor before getting the car towed. Changed to a different key Thanks for the reply. I shall do nopthing rignt now.

Common problem. Ignore the lights unless the car really doesn't start.

    The resistor bypass has probably already been done in this car. Thats probably why the light is coming on. That's why I said to leave it alone. If its not causing the car not to start why rock the boat?

    This is a common problem in those cars. Back yard mechanics and lazy installers cut the PATS wires and put a resistor inline to bypass the PATS anti theft system when installing a remote start. The correct way is to use a relay to switch to the resistor only while remote starting and back to the PATS system when starting with a key.

    Also, sometimes the connections on the switch will wear and the car won't read the resistance on the key. In this instance you can wire in the resistor to always bypass PATS. However, this will disable the factory security. The light on the dash will still work however, and may say "theft system problem." The car will still start because it is bypassed.

    Therefore, you can pick one or more of the following:

    1. Do nothing. Ignore the warning. (my suggestion)

    2. Replace the ignition switch, or clean the contacts in the switch. (may fix it, may not)

    3. Re-hook the PATS wires and take out the resistor bypass. (May fix it, may cause your car not

    to start,

Passkey problems


its the small chip in the key, after the resister goes bad it cant carry the proper amount of resistance to the anti theft system. you can easily bypass this problem and get the resistance reading with an ohm meter. after you get the correct reading you can purchase some resisters from an electronics specialty shop. radio shack used to carry them but have stopped carrying such items. after you get them youll usually have to connect 2 of them together with soldier and connecting them to the 2 small yellow wires on the security system (NOT THE BIGGER AIRBAG WIRES AS THEY ARE ALSO YELLOW) Once you do this your car will start up no problems at all. I am a certified caddy tech and have done this on many caddys so, i do know what im talking about.

This sounds like an issue with the little chip on your key. My 96 DeVille periodiclly does the same thing. If you have problems with that chip you have to take it to a Cadillac dealership and have them look at the key. Should be cheap.

I have a 97 caddy on dash a message enable to start due to auto


have you tried to get your key looked at??
maybe the resistor on it is no good anymore,
or maybe the wires for this system are damaged,
they are two skinny white wires inside an orange sleeve
(that's how it is on my 97 deville)
check under the dash.

Theft car system


dear Hun~ It all has to do with the Vats system in your car. You can bypass it or get a new key or you might need a new ignition cylinder.
