Ok, my ignition was bad on my 97 achieva. I popped it out, and planned to use a screwdriver to start it. It starts but only runs for a few seconds. The security light is on, and i think that may be the issue, but not sure. How can i bypass the security function, or just make it work? Also is there anything i will have to do to make it shift?
The chip in the key is what makes the engine run. If the security system doesn't see the security chip resistance, it won't run.
You can go to a radio and security store and ask them if they have a kit to bypass the security mode on your car.
The kit has different resistors to match the different keys codes made by GM. The kit was made to use with remote starting systems to bypass the security system so you can start the car by remote. It also has the instructions on how to install it.
