Hello!

There is no way to bypass this anti theft system without using a kit designed specifically for this Passlock 3 system. I honestly do not even know who makes it. If you do in fact have a security issue going on, it will need to be diagnosed and fixed the correctly way. It is possible that you might just have a bad ignition switch.

Expert:  Amedee replied 4 years ago.
Chances are because it is not a security issue. If so, it was just misdiagnosed.
