My insurance co. gives a discount for theft deterrent devices such as fuel cutoff and alarm systems. I had *thought* that the dealer said my '01 gagt had a fuel cutoff if it was started without the key in the ignition, but my owners manual makes no mention of that. Anyone know if this was standard equipment on the 01?

Thanks!

Yes, the PassLock II theft deterrent system.

If there is no (any) key in the ignition (like if "hotwired"), the fuel gets cut-off.

dont let her try it. it will engage the passlock system and then it has to be reset before it will start

Yeah, well she woudlnt do it anyways, she was just bragging about sayin she can start my car without a key. Heck those things are sensitive too, i had to get a new cylinder for it cuz the one i had wasnt working right. Possibly didnt recognize the key that well.
