Gm vats key / resistor key security bypass – Auto Repair Chat

Surplus electronic parts : https://epartsconnect.com

In this video Eric O. and the crew at SMA show you how to bypass the security system on older GM's that use the resistor pellet chip key also know as the VATS (Vehicle Anti Theft System ) We demonstrate it on the 1994 Chevrolet Corvette but works the same all the way across the board on older GM VATS systems.

    Hello. My name is Andy. I changed starter on 1985 Corvette but still there is no crank no start which is why I replaced starter in the first place. This car is manual. I jump started it with remote from underneath car.
    This turned the engine, but car will not start from ignition. Battery is new. When I got the car, there was no chip on the key. If you have any idea what the issue might be, I would appreciate your input. Thank you.

    Thanks bro! Your my favorite you tuber .

    Okay so question AFTER you bypass it can you put a new key lock cylinder WITHOUT the orange cable ?! I ask because i have a 1992 camaro (3rd gen) and i found this badass chrome key lock cylinder from a 87 but it doesn’t have the orange wire & the keys themselves dont have the resistors either now my guess is if i bypass the vats system there will be no problem putting this new lock cylinder but i would like a second opinion! So if you dont mind id like to hear from you please and thanks!

    Thank you for the information. May I suggest taking your non compliant key, inserting into ignition, turn it to the run position for 1 hour then start your car? Let me know if it works.

    WHAT WIRES WOULD I USE FOR A 1998 CORVETTE?

    Great video. Very easy to follow. This will be my next job on my C4. Cheers mate

    I hate engineered obsolescence. I wonder how many GM cars got junked because of some micro wires. Mine isn't broken but if the cabin is too hot she wont start. I roll down the windows for a bit and viola, she starts. Her CD player is the same way. Error code E20 or too humid to play disc. My solution? I own three antique cars. Good video.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Thompson says:

    Those butt connectors add resistance. Why not do some type of military splice across the 2 wires and wrap it all and add cable ties to secure the wrapping?

    Good Job as usual

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Williams Barnes says:

    How do you find out what size of resistor go in it if the resistor when the key drop out

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gene Yus says:

    Unwatchable, the guy tries to imitate rambo and just rambles on. I feel sorry for the kid in the video, she looks totally bored.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chequito Partosa says:

    Sir can i have your diagram including starting system.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chequito Partosa says:

    Thank you for sharing idea sir..

    Will this work for a 2007 dodge ram 1500 5.7 hemi it has the red light on when I try turn key to start but security is on

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raul Escobedo says:

    I don't believe them funny take the wires at the bottom there was two white wires when he came out of the ignition housing it was a red and orange wire only something's fishy the video

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Wilkins II says:

    Is there a way to personally contact you I have a issue simular to this video

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Henry Benjamin Stoneking says:

    I got frozen out of my lasabre from the security feature. I pushed the red alarm button on the keychain numerous times and it finally reset the security so I could drive my car again.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DzNuttzOnYaChin says:

    look at all the trash you collected in the comments

    great job 🙄

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cristopher Pérez says:

    😂I like the last part of the video very funny…

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Garland says:

    I've got a 02 siverodo with no key institution I can start it for second then it's turns off just as fast as it starts

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Holzinger says:

    What a horrible sounding alarm chime. Sounds like the car is sick and ready to puke🤮

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Meredith says:

    I used to have one of those on my 1988 Firebird GTA after I bought the car Eric it was a biggest pain-in-the-ass the dealership was 40 miles away I went through four sets of keys within two weeks the dealership finally did the same thing you did there and that was back in 1988 is a beautiful car ran great but that security system really sucked .

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Whitmore says:

    So many videos I have searched to try and find how to bypass with a resistor gave me almost 20 hours of frustration and wasted YouTube videos on idiots! Not only did you guide me to fix the problem and actually bypass it correctly you save me a lot of time 10 cool points And two thumbs up

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ricardo Douglas says:

    Excellent video congratulations, but with a lot of respect please what is the name of the assistant very cute

    THANKS…..

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emre Koc says:

    Can I carry out the same procedure on a 1996 Pontiac transam? Never have these cars in the UK and have to solve this issue for my customer.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JoeGMoney says:

    So realistically I can cut my security wire and the car will work fine mine keeps throwing the security code?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JON Gergeceff says:

    Help.. infamous

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars My 2 Cents says:

    98 Buick , same shit , took key to electronics shop , had guy there ohm it out and sold me a matching resistor very close to what the key was. Wanted 1.20 for it , I give him 5 for 2. Soldiered it between the 2 wire going to the computer from switch and boom , fixed. I can also use an after market key now in the switch , screw driver ect.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ricky Williams says:

    On my 93 Vette the problem I'm having is the car runs about 3-5 mins then shut off but not start back up. If you let sit about 30 mins it will start back up. Where do I need to start?

    Sometimes I watch these videos to get a chuckle out of the errors in the video. He mispronounced "Sammy Hagar"! This is keavy metal blasphemy!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Bob says:

    Can u start a 08 equinox without a key I lost my key and don’t have 2500 to get a new key made the computer part is what’s costing me.

    Yoú go boy.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George G says:

    Explains what was previously done to my 2015 Frontier by a major dealership in BHC AZ sold with altered key. Otherwise a great deal always examin used car keys for tell tale signs of alterations like excessive wear or file marks. Discovered after having hardware duplicates made just to operate the door but also allowed full start up and operation.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Greene says:

    Preparing to use this resistor technique you demonstrate.
    1. Have you ever had this method fail?
    2. What do you think of a third-party product that claims to generate a "PASS" signal at the PCM? That is, it apparently generates the ignition key "PASS" signal and activates the injector circuit, all at the same point at the PCM. It's an expensive box, and a waste of money if the resistor technique is a durable repair.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Naderi says:

    You’re a lifesaver. I believe I can use this method on a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix since I drive one. I’ve had two times having to reprogram a key. I enjoyed the video 😎👍😁

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Mccrary says:

    I did the same thing with my 95 z28 but now my key fob doesn't work. Any suggestions?

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mario Acosta says:

    As a side thought I would pay for that mod set up
    So a novice like me could just install it
    But you did show how easy it is to do

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mario Acosta says:
