PostSubject: VATS Security bypass   Sat Jun 17, 2017 6:39 pm

I'll leave the writeup alone this round.

I've followed the procedure to get to the VATS module. My wire colors are different than the photos from Setton's writeup. And I assume there's a year difference.

When my security delay started, it was very random, maybe months between. Most recently, I often reach the third rotation and give up which extends the wait time enough that the morning reliability no longer exists.

My research tells me that installing a remote starter requires some amount of modifying the security system. Is it possible that's an option?

My understanding is the remote start can work but until you replace the ig switch and ig cylinder the problem recurs.

Unhooked the VATS module. Security light flashes, car starts again and again and again.

That's a way to do it - next step is pull the IC and disable the light, I guess.... or did you do that already?

The light blinks at a normal interval and goes out. I'm OK with that.

My assumption was that unhooking the module would make something/everything not work. I've never had any other security issue aside from start delay. Time will tell.

My goal was to add the resistor. I'll have to research which wires to bypass as noted above.

Got it.

Reminds me of the starter interlock on 1974 model year American vehicles. One way to defeat that was to simply disconnect a sensor wire, underneath the seat. Varied depending on make/model.

Ouch. No start for first time.

Same symptom: key in, SECURITY light stays on, wait three minutes and start.

Stop at power house for Friday eve provisions and normal restart.

Now I question my/our approach. Threads have suspected that inclusion of resistor will fix the problem (the test being adding resistor and car starts although few have cited failure).

I have deleted the VATS module from the equation with success (maybe) ... until many days into the process.

With success, it makes me wonder what has happened to the loop that requires the key of proper resistor code?

My next plan would be looping the resistor into the dangling VATS plug (see wire color note above). How would I measure success? The car has started without the module. Success or failure cannot be attributed to anything that has been held valid by others' tests.

That's kind of why i bit the banana and replaced the starting wear parts--ig switch, ig cylinder. Replacing the cylinder, have to get new keys cut or re-pin the new cylinder to match the old key. I simply bought blanks in advance and had those cut using the pattern keys that came with the cylinder.
