The starter kill switch is one of the most done relay security of all
times. It is for that reason, a common point of interest for thieves. This
security relay system can be done effectively, however, if a few steps are
taken to mask the system. One way is to use the injector power feed to
trigger the starter kill relay. The idea it to leave the system disabled
until someone turns the ignition key or in our case, a thief disables the
ignition cylinder and turn the key.
At this point in time, when the key is turned, the normal sequence of
events it that the injectors receive power feed as soon as the key is
turned. The power feed then actuates the relay, which is already grounded
by a normally On button. In this configuration, the starter will not engage
and the engine stays Off. The only way to make the engine start is to....

2000 Saturn LS1, Starting Defect
The anti theft system in the 2000 Saturn LS1, thinks you're trying to steal
the car sometimes. You have to wait ten minutes before the 'Security'
light stops flashing. Once the security light is not flashing you can
start the car. Trying to start the car with the security light flashing
will either burn out your starter or deplete your battery!
Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a
problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on
the same battery. Thanks for all the comments!
This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not
start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to
start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to
"fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking
of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :)
Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link
http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I
first heard about this solution.
Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed
it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while
the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started
fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this
week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running,
turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
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
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.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an old video! It WILL be redone and in HD.
Some of my information has changed and will be addressed in the future

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.
No Crank, No Start Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at
Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your
vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start"
and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch
till the end.

Engine Won't Start - No Crank Diagnosis (Troubleshooting Starting System Issues)
In this video I show you how to diagnose a no crank condition on a 1997
Honda Accord but the techniques shown here can be used on any vehicle.
A no crank means when the ignition switch is turned to the start position
the starter doesn't crank the engine.
To troubleshoot this issue I cover battery testing with a load tester,
solenoid trigger wire testing, and voltage drop testing with a multimeter
on the power and ground side of the starter.
I also cover how a relay works, how the starter solenoid works, and explain
what the neutral safety switch is and how it's incorporated into different
start circuit designs.

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.
UPDATE August 2013 - Hey dumbfucks, if you think it's better to bench test
the starter first, by all means be my guest. My way cuts down on diagnostic
by ruling out the easy to test shit first.
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.
GM Pass Key II Malfunctions: Bypassing V.A.T.S System
Your car won't start? SECURITY light steady lit or flashing? More then
likely it is the Vehicle Anti Theft System (V.A.T.S) at fault. Over time
the resister pellet imbedded in your car key wears out from years of
inserting and removing from the ignition lock cylinder. Here is a cheap way
to bypass it, so you can get back on the road.
