Jake Buxton: Good video if you're looking to make your car prone to hotwiring /
screwdriver auto theft. In the 80's when this ATS was implemented Corvette
thefts went down by 90%. Performing the action in this video is clever, but
stupid as crap. On another critical note, these are NOT passlock systems.
When you say Passlock, you're referring to the GM 10cut passlock systems
that have a magnet + transponder system built into the lock itself to
prevent hotwiring only. VATS locks use keys called Passkey I and Passkey II
depending on whether your lock uses a single or double sided key. These
locks are strictly referred to as VATS locks. Try to be a bit more accurate
and CAREFUL when presenting your company in these videos bud. Thanks for
teaching auto thieves around the world douche.
Brian O: Will an auto repair shop fix this issue, or is this a home fix only
situation? I've called a few places and have explained the issue, they
understand what the problem is but have said they don't do it at their
garage... any help?
Jodi Adams: This is the site that helped me.. its easy and a permanent fix :0)
The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that
something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and
trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists.
From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant
line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to
the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent
Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the
ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security
light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second.
When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft
and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired
because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why
the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains
it pretty well.
Just a Dude: This is a great way to temporarily bypass the security in the key/ignition.
If the Theft Deterrent Module is bad, it won't help you at all. If you've
tried this and it didn't help, or you are looking for a more complete
bypass, go to this link i found. Great information and a permanent way to
eliminate this issue for good on your GM.
Ronald Bolden: you can turn this off with HPtuners
Dales channel: Lessco
Ive watched a few videos on this. I want to override/eliminate the passlock
system altogether. Are the videos that show cutting the yellow wire and
placing a resistor between the yellow wire and the orange/black wire and
taping up the excess yellow wire that goes up to the key. Is this the right
procedure? and if it is, how do I find what the resistor value should be.
The videos say to measure the resistance (after you cut the yellow wire)
between the yellow wire and orange/black. I get a reading 3600ohms when I
measure on the strand of yellow wire going into the steering column, but
when I measure the strand of yellow wire that goes up to the key it
registers (infinity). Does that tell you anything?, all the other videos
say I should have measurable resistance where I'm measuring infinity.
Dominique Parker: My light stays on, I have 97 malibu, It took a week to start and now it
will not start, I lost my keyless entry will that have any effect on the
car's ability to start? I left my key in the on position it still will not
memph33777: i have repaired the broken wires in my ignition a few times. this time car
wouldnt start and i was getting a code 22 and 58 obd1. Took apart the lock
cylinder and wires were broke. repaired wires (i think because they were
very short) and car would not start like other times but security light
would not come back on.. put resistors together for bypass and still wont
start. did bypass 30/50 hz between tdr and ecm and still wont start. when
turning ignition no sound at all. hooked up remote starter and car will
crank but dies after 2 seconds. fuel pump will whirl and fuel injector
noid light flashes some.
Fred .Bo: my key is reading 1.12 i dont know the mathematics of the resistors or what
now what do i need and how many ?
Juan Gonzalez: I got a chevy s10 ..1999..it wont start..I just buy that truck guy told me
that you can star that truck with a remote control but I dont have it..how
can I start that truck please need some help
Zionist JewTube: If you live in Toronto could you bypass the VATS on my 98 Cadillac Deville?
Christian Barraza: does this work,if have installed a new cylender lock and key??????????????/
Marquan HollaAtYaBOY: On 05 Mountaineer, thanks.
Danny F: Video quality is very poor go to High Definition.
Eric Cumbee: What if the theft light is solid?car won't crank sometimes, do i need to do
the ground wire to the pink wire thing?
Marquan HollaAtYaBOY: Good video Lessco, Question, Have watch previous version of your video on
how to install remote start kit, Do you have a video on how to setup OEM
Interface 3 PULSE START?, with vehicles that already have Keyless entry
installed. I have a vehicle that already has a OEM remote on the key chain
for unlock/lock/truck & panic. I got a RS00 G4 Add on remote start 3 pulse
for vehicle that came with OEM remote. I just wanted to here how would you
suggest to set this option up for 3 pulse that communicates with the system
anti-theft system already installed by manufacturing. It saves time to
stall less wires to set this option up. Please help, I have read the
instructions, but I just want to here your expertise on this for you have
made good detailed video explaining step by step.
photo412: i have to do option two that he said but i am unsure what he meas by
resister and i cant see it low quality dose annyone now?
grabir01: It is Resistance not impedance. Impedance is imaginary. Resistance is
real. Impedance is a function of frequency. Resistance is not.
Dawn Walters: Can you please tell me if you can bypass or override the passlock system in
a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am? I am being told two opposite things by two
res1492: really does not work in 240p
Derek Simerly: I have a 2003 chevy ventura van. Do you happen to know where the onstar box
is located in this vehicle? Thank you for any advice.
Lessco Electronics: your key should have the + sign on it, making it a passlock 3 system (which
is transponder) this video is only for resistor based passlock 1 and 2
airhead151v2: we had to change the ecm in our 99 Monte Carlo cause of a lightning strike
now it will not turn over we think vats is the problem but we were
wondering if you had any other suggestions or if theirs just no hope
(gauges,warning lights,lights and the fuel pump activate when we turn the
Thomas Room: I recently purcahsed a cluster for my car and the security system will not
allow the vecicle to start, one of the messages is disable starter and it
has. if i do the by pass will I still have to have the cluster reprogramed?
Kevin Schmitz: @TheLessco Thanks going to give it a try!
MrJdub928: hey guys, there only 12 differrent value of resistors it can be, go to
the12Volt site get the resistor chart for gm vats, go to radioshack and get
one of those small 10 turn potentometers with a value up to 20K ohms. stet
the pot to the lowest value on the chart with it installed on the car. try
to start it, if it doesnt start, key off set the pot to the next value then
back on for 10 mins, do that ntill you find the right one. youll know you
have the right one when it starts up!
occotillobrock: ok i have a 2001 chevy 1500 with the 5.3 as a farm truck . My passlock has
disabled the motor, so im needing to bypass it. the truck will never leave
my property so disabling the security system would not be a problem.. i saw
the relay option, but i dont have a relay.. where can i get an inline
resistor like you discussed at the end? so i can just put a new resistor in
it, let it sit for 30 min, then try and start it. if i could i would have a
push button start.
zachjjjh: would my 07 tahoe have this in it?
Lessco Electronics: @sr20kschmitz Ive done it many times, its a winner every time
Lessco Electronics: Here is the answer to all your problems, youtube.com/watch?v=A-XJGCOKKYY
bowbeforethedamned: The only right way to bypass VATS is to either have someone reprogram your
ECU to bypass it, or to program it yourself if you have the tools and know
how. I know of one programmer that will do it for around $100 bucks. It may
not be cheap but it's cheaper than just the ignition switch for the VATS
and it's permanent.
Mark Richmond: i find the vats one confusing without wiring diagram can you email me one?
way i see it 30 (with resister) is ground and 87 is when remote starting or
bypassing not sure why 87a is needed? as it is still going to be resited by
30? or do you mean 30 and 87a have continuity(no resister) and run in
between the cut vats wire and when relay energized the resister is on 87
going to car side? see why i need a visual lol
Lessco Electronics: Do the part of the video where I illustrate cutting the 2 white wires (vats
only) and place the same resistor value thats in your ket. thats it.
Vincent taman: Do you have a way to bypass a Passlock for a 2002 Saturn Sl2. I'm having a
hard time with this car. On your video for the passlock 2 system, on the
relay side you mentioned that pin 30 should go to the car side. But on the
Saturn that's the pin for the fuel pump. I really need your expertise on
Lessco Electronics: you can get a used one at a junkyard and spike it like I do as my last
resort method and it'll be back on the road in no time. but of course
you're situation is a bad one. my vid was for cars with aggravating vats
systems, not totally doa ones.
Jamie Galves: I think youre name is Vincent... At least thats what the guys at my remote
start shop up here in Anchorage. We use youre techniques as standard
practice after watching youre videos. You mentioned in one of youre videos
that you can make remote starts that were made for automatics work for
manuals. If you could tell me over a comment reply and.if you have time
make a new video of it. I thank you so much for youre teaching
jesus vargas: I didnt understand the relay part. My 99 silverado is acting up. I already
did the resistor on the wires. It worked fine for a couple months but its
failing again. Does my truck have a relay or do u buy a relay and connect
it to the ignition wires? Help please
Joe Ivo: can you help me with my wifes saturn? its very dangerious so please any
help would be great. 2001 L200
tcrosser: Hey man, video looks great. Im looking at taking your second passlock
option. I have a couple questions about this though and im wondering if you
could do me the favor of corresponding via email.
chillininlondon: what if i lost my key?
Addrick Stich: With an 1995 88 oldsmobile how can you bypass the security if you lost your
key? me and my dad bought a new Ignition lock cylinder, but all we hear is
a clicking noise instead of any turn over. we have a feeling it has
something to do with the new key lacking the security resistor, any help?
Shawn Lemons: I have a 1997 Buick Skylark that has been having this problem and I think
we found the original problem to have been the ignition cylinder, which we
replaced. We thought that the problem was fixed, but the battery needed to
be replaced because all the times the key was left on to reset. So we
replaced the battery and now nothing lights up on the dash etc. and will
not start at all. Is it still possible to find the resistance if the car
wont start? Or do I have bigger problems now?
bowbeforethedamned: Bypass modules can fail or become loose and are just plain sloppy in the
first place. In most cases they are more expensive than having someone
reprogram your ECU. The best part about having someone program the ECU is
that it is PERMANENT. Nothing to come loose, nothing to fail, no becoming
stranded when it does. It defeats VATS at CORE LEVEL. Bypassing is like
fix-a-flat - it's not a real fix and somewhere down the line it will fail.
Ayman Muslim: There is a small red light that starts to blink even if the car is off
(over the dash fuse box). I dont know if the previous owner had installed a
immobilizer !!?? Could you please help me out!
rodeo o: what are you talking about,,,,,take it to any alarm shop and they will
bypass it for you.
Lessco Electronics: Did you put the matching resistor value between that cut yellow (engine
side) and the black?
Lessco Electronics: It could be a fiat ket too, But I do know my s**t though
Lessco Electronics: 95's arent the really bad ones actually, But I would try to integrate NOT
ELIMINATE it (yet) try a digital bypass, like the ib-gmbp I sell at
lesscosales-com, Give that one a go, Thats the best you can get to date.
And see how it goes, happy bypassing
Duce Wells: Instead of buying a bunch of resistors and even reading the key (if you
have the patience) just grab one of these "Directed Electronics 652T GM
VATS Bypass Kit" from Amazon and you only need ONE resistor!!!!
MrJdub928: yeah this is crazy, cutting the harness and putting in a resistor is the
much simpler, far more reliable, and easier way to do that.
