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....

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

GM passlock problem
2001 Impala Base 114,xxx miles.
Runs & drives perfect, except....
GM replaced BCM computer 9-09. Accomplished nothing.
I replaced ignition switch w/NAPA part 10-09-09. Worked great for 2 weeks.
Then started having the same ole trouble.
I replaced ignition key tumbler switch w/passlock sensor w/NAPA part
No problems until this week 1-13-10.
Still doing the same exact thing it was doing before I replaced anything.
Hasn't started any day this week. 10 minute wait, etc. will not work.
Starts when it wants to.
Anyone have any ideas on how to properly repair this chronic problem?
----NOTE----the problem is fixed.
Cleaned the contacts on the BCM computer fuse.
That's all it took. If your car is exhibiting symptoms exactly like mine
did, I'd try that 1st.
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!
No Crank, No Start Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy

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.

Automotive Robo Tech was called to a shop on a 2003 Chevy Van G2500, with a
4.8 liter engine, experiencing a security light on followed by a no start
situation. For some reason, the shop replaced the crank sensor. Because is
was a no start, they reason it was probably the crank sensor, and of
course, it wasn't. They eventually saw the security light on, and figured
out that it was a Pass-Lock system issue. They next replaced the Pass-Lock
key cylinder, with no luck either. At this time, the shop decided to call
me in for assistance. They simply didn't have to scan tool to access the
BCM or body module for this problem.
When I arrived at the shop, the tech gave me a briefing on the vehicle, and
also said that the vehicle would start once in a blue moon. Ok, that was
probably some kind of clue. I started my diagnostic by performing a general
code analysis. I did get code P1632, or Theft Deterrent Fuel Disable Signal
Received from the BCM. There were no other codes present. I knew it wasn't
the key cylinder, since it was already replaced. There are steps to take in
all Pass Lock diagnostics before condemning a component.
In this particular GM, the signal from the ignition system is controlled by
a resistor embedded in the Pass Lock module, which is part of the ignition
switch cylinder. In these systems, any key that will allow the cylinder to
be turned to the on position will work, the only condition that must be met
is that the cylinder must be turned to a position where a magnet engages a
hall effect switch, which connects the embedded resistor to the system,
allowing the Body Control Module to read the signal value, on the yellow
Pin A6 wire, and determine if the resistance value is correct.
I analyzed the Pass Lock calibration and determined that it was correct.
So, why was this car not starting? I started to suspect an electrical or
connector fault. So I decided to visually inspect the Pass Lock module and
wiring. Everything looked normal, so I then decided to concentrate on the
BCM. As I scanned the B C M data stream for clues, I saw that all of a
sudden I lost communications.
Was the ECM defective? Or, was it an issue with the ...... Get the whole

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.

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
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.
