Ok, I need the last 8 of the vin number to pull the schematics

I also need to know if your original key had a little metal pellet in it at the top part of the key, and if so, do you still have that key

Ok, I will have to opt out. The only way I know is to get the resistance reading off the original key and install a resistor of same reading inline in the wiring. If another expert knows another way, they will post here for you

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It looks like just your last question wasn't answered.

No, there isn't any kind of GPS locating device that could be used to locate parts if they are stolen.

That black box , could it of bin my computer box ?? An if so van I by pass that to get var started an working right ??

I don't have a way of knowing for sure what the part was but you seem to be describing an immobilizer, security or alarm module.

I couldn't give a way to disable any security features due to ethical and liability concerns.
