How to diagnose a bad starter, ignition, neutral safety switch!
The re are 3 wires or electrodes on all starters. One is the large bolt that is attached to the main positive battery cable. One is the small wire that is sometimes purple that is attached to the ignition switch "key". And one is just a copper wire or electrode that supplies a ground/power to the starter from the solenoid.
How to bypass GM VATS
Had to do this video over again due to problems with it. This is how to get rid of that pesky vats thing in older GM cars. Here is information on the thridgen.org site
The content in this video is meant to help you get out of a jam with your security system and dont have to take it in for a "dealer" fix. This is NOT meant to show you how to break into cars so be good.
Starter relay test on Kymco Super 8
This video shows how to test the starter relay.
The starter relay should make a "click" sound when the starter button is pressed (and one of the brakes are engaged).
A multimeter set to 20 volt DC is connected instead of the starter motor to show when the starter motor should be getting power.
On the starter relay is says :
GM Bypass Ignition System Operation
How a bad ignition module can cause a no injector pulse condition with good spark.
How does electronic spark timing work?
This video is to be used with my next upload which is a 91 Buick 3300 with good spark and no injector pulse.
Chevy Trailblazer no crank testing and information
A big misconception is that the ignition switch is directly tied into the starter. This bad info, combined with a high failure rate of ignition switch failures, leads a lot of people to replace the ignition switch for a no crank. Also, there have been cases where people see the 12v from the ignition switch yellow wire, don't see it at the starter, and assume that there is a break in the non existent wire that connects the ignition switch to the starter.
Here I explain how the starting system works and show you how to test the starter relay inputs and the output.
One thing that I forgot to mention, if every input test passed, and you can jump the relay to make the starter turn on, the problem is most likely the starter relay itself.
VATS bypass, partial LS1
Fixing (bypassing) my BCM since VATS decided to act up, all that's left is a bypass module and hopefully that will fix things. The BCM sends a 30 or 50hz signal to the PCM telling it to give fuel to the engine, as well as ground the starter solenoid. What I've done here is ground the starter solenoid, so it will start...just runs out of fuel after 2 seconds or so.
General Motors PASSLOCK® anti-deterrent features in a 99 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4L
So, once again GM has done it. They invented something that failed and yet again they don't have a solution. This feature should not be added to any car, even if someone steals the car, the odds of this system to stop working are zero to none. Once WE THE OWNERS need to replace an ignition cylinder or an ECM, then the system fails for us. And the Dealership has NO CLUE how to fix it other than the helpful tip to crack the ECM open and replace the "memory chip". We all know that the memory chip is integrated and soldered on these years models. There is a reason why I love FORD!

2002 SATURN L100 BCM
This is my 2002 Saturn L100 2.2L with a faulty BCM (Body Control Module). If your Saturn is doing this then a new GM part is worth over $600. I have looked all over the internet for a video like this to confirm that this is the problem with no luck. I figured I would show you my experience so when a GM tech looks at you like you are retarded when you tell him the symptoms you can say your not the only one.
GM Passkey Bypass VATS (PART 1)
Prep work on what you will need to properly perform the Passkey Bypass for the GM VATS. (PART 1)
Please scan OBD-II for DTC P1626 (Theft Deterrent Fuel Enable Signal Lost) prior to starting this project if possible.
