How To Override Bypass GM VATS Passlock 1 2 Passkey Anti Theft System




What do you think about this video?

Danroxye01: About the Passlock Bypass? ( part of an old remote starter package) I wish to remove it and return to original configuration. I suspect this recently intalled Passlock Bypass to be causing excessive battery drainage. So I am confused on the procedure ( How to do it properly ) . The reason , ever since GM ignition switch recall, GM shop sent me else where to have this generic remote starter reprogramed, elsewhere garage had to replace Passlock Bypass box, and now, I notice battery drainage and it cant be that new battery I just installed. I got the remote starter out but when I removed the Passlock Bypass out of the saturn Ion I notice car passlock indicator on ( car would start anyway with the indicator on ). Could you please explain a simple procedure ?

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. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

reginald kelley: Having a hard time in Chicago finding someone who knows how to do the security foot down with the resistance any suggestions

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. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

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.

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.

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.

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 start.

Ronald Bolden: you can turn this off with HPtuners

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?

Danny F: Video quality is very poor go to High Definition.

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?

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 ?

Marquan HollaAtYaBOY: On 05 Mountaineer, thanks.

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?

res1492: really does not work in 240p

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 different people. 

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.

Nick Exley: I found a wiring Diagram for my vehicle (2006 Chevy Express 3500) I found a yellow wire in the L.Blue connector of the BCM that is the “security system sensor wire” and I also found in the Gray connector of the BCM under B7 a Tan wire that is “Security system sens low ref”. So my question is which of the two security wires get cut? Tan or Yellow?

Christian Barraza: does this work,if have installed a new cylender lock and key??????????????/

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 systems.

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 key )

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 this matter.

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. tcrosser[at]gmail(dot)com. Thanks!

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.

Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
