Well since it so old you could find a used on or i could see if a reman is available.There is one other option I have used with success.Take yours out and have an auto parts store send it out to be repaired.they will need the vin.mileage etc.I save my customers over half the price of a new computer.When you bypassed the VAT did you install a resistor and solder it in?If the bypass connections were not good the resistance in the circuit will change and the VATS module will go into theft deterrent mode.
