Any locksmith can provide a VATS bypass. They usually charge less than $50 to do it. It's just a matter of inserting the correct OHM Resistor in the ignition loop. Fairly simple process really. If your local locksmith charges more than $50 - he's ripping you off. Mine did it for $35 - took 15 minutes. You will need the original key of course as they need it to measure the OHM Resistance for your car. There are 15 different possible keys.

Okay, question about the VATS fuse. I pulled it because I got tired of waiting for the car to start and that didn't work. Secondly, if the key reads and I drive the car, when I stop if I leave the key in the ignition does that mean it will read next time??

Thanks!

The car will only start when the correct key is in the ignition. Leaving the key in the ignition will accomplish nothing unless you leave the car running. Look at your key - if the contacts on the key are worn, have a new one made. If the car has a lot of miles and the pins in the steering column are worn, a new key won't help much.

Bypassing the VATS is really not very difficult for the doityourselfer. Using an ohm meter, measure and record the resistance of the chip in your ignition key. Go to Radioshack and purchase resistor(s) to achieve this resistance. If more than one resistor is needed to get the resistance value needed - solder them together in series. The resistors cost $1.00 for a package of five. Then, remove the plastic piece below the steering wheel (there are like 4 screws). Amongst all of the electrical connections on the steering column, there is a seperate two wire connector - typically yellow 18 gauge wires. Unplug the connector and shove the resistor into the car side of the connector - not the steeringwheel side. Then try and start. If you have the resistance correct - there is a range that the computer will accept for each of the 15 set values. Once you have confirmed that this works - make a more permanent repair.

read the key with voltmeter, go to radio shack, get a carbon resistor, solder it inline with the plug under the steering column, it is a stand alone plug, 2 wire,mostly yellow,thin gauge. will start up.
