The passlock bug has bitten me on my 2000. I don't want to put in a new ignition cylinder if I don't have to.

I want to know how to completely disable the Passlock system so it never causes the car not to start up immediately. I don't care if there is a security light on or not, I just don't want it to prevent the car from being started.

I have searched and found the method for soldering in a switch but I don't want a switch. Does the resistor method where you solder the proper resistance between the yellow and black wires work permanently?

Approximately what is the range of the resistance I will see?
When I clip the yellow wire, will I be able to twist it back together and drive to Radioshack to get the resistor?
Does Radioshack even stock common resistors anymore?

My Girlfriend has been Having The security Light Starting Problem on Her 2000 grand Am Se. If I Purchase DEI 555L Bypass module, Will I have to have a Remote Start to start the Car??

I've had the passlock problem in the past and had it fixed (one was ignition cylinder swap and the second was for a faulty part).

However, now my car won't start on occasion. It really only happens once every other month or so. Is this normal operation for the Passlock system? Should I get it fixed or would I just be wasting my time?

I'm considering buying a remote starter in hopes that the passlock bypass module will "cure" my passlock woes. Am I correct in assuming this will work?

thanks,

you can just buy a simiple resistor from radio shack.. 50 cents at most. There is no need to buy a DEI 555 unit or a remote starter.

Kinda OT, but my security light is on 24/7 now for whatever reason but I haven't had a problem starting the car since it happened! LoL

I may end up giving this a shot. I've seen your step by step instructions, but is it something that an electrical newbie can handle easily?

if you can cut a wire.. solder.. and read resistance off a multimeter then its a piece of cake
