Hello how can I bypass the passkey
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 month ago.

Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 month ago.

you will need a factory scanner or equivalent to run a diagnostic scan & retrieve fault codes from the alarm module in the vehicle.
is it the module, the receiver, hood switch , door switch, wiring etc.. , it could be number of reasons & there is not a fuse or a relay that you can pull out to disconnect it uunfortunatly

You can try manual reset

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You

It still want start
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 month ago.

unfortunatly there no fuse or relay to pull out to deactivate the system

the car computer has to see to get a signal from the anti theft module to allow start up

you need a Pontiac scanner or equivalent to read the fault codes to see what failed , the key , the module ,hood switch trunk switch etc...

I try again still ain't work I will call u when the person who was fixing my car come back if I call u sure we can get it start it str I really have to go to work tomorrow it was working before the passkey was broken
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 month ago.

if the pass key broke it will not start with out making another one , a capable lock smith can do it .

calling me want be helpful to you since what i m telling is correct .and wll cost you more momney for call and not necessary in this case

the pass key has to be replaced , there a rf signal that the key emits to the alarm module , id it stopped sending it because it broke YOU WILL NEED ANOTHER KEY

i m sorry not what you want to hear but it is true, what need to do is call a lock smith and tell the car you have and see if he can make another key that has the chip in it or the dealer or a repai shop that can have the keys made and have the scanner to program it

Please let me know if that works for you

Thank You
