Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help get your problem resolved. Here are instructions to bypass, it might not be as easy as you were hoping but only option I know of. You can also try following security relearn procedure: Bump key in start position for a second, leave in on position for 10 minutes, off 5 seconds, on 10 minutes, off 5 seconds, on 10 minutes, then start. Let me know if you have questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
Once I find the resistance value where do I install the bypass resisitor? I see a few relays in the picture. Do I install this resistor between the yellow (computer side) and the black without cutting the black wire?
What box is that where the ign 1 + and the ign 3 - are coming from? Is there an easy place to intercept these wires other than at this box? I understand I need to purchase 2 ea. normal relays?
Do you know what color and size the ign 1 + and the ign 3 - wires are which are under the column? Is it true that I can substitute the ign 3 - on the diagram for a ign +?
Ok this now makes sense, I will start tomorrow will you be available and how long can I keep this dialog active? Thanks for your help and have a good night!
Sounds good...also why is it not a good idea to just connect the resistor directly to the yellow wire going to the BCM? Do I have to use the relays do to safety or maybe running the battery down etc.?
I am trying to get an accurate reading for the resistor. In diode mode I get about 880 to 925. With the meter in the 200 ohm range with reversed leads i get 21 to 196 ohms. In the diagram I notice what appears to be a transistor with the arrow pointing out like a npn. Can you help me make sense of this?
are you in today?
Relist: Other. Unable to contact Dan at this time. Is anyone able to help at this time?
I am getting 1.6M ohms or when I switch to diode mode on meter I get 823. Looking at the diagram in the manual I have it shows a transistor and two resistors. I dont think I am getting the correct reading that I am looking for. I do have the three wires running together coming out of the switch assy in the dash. I cut the yellow and scrapped the black and am connected to the yellow wire going to the key and other lead is on the bare spot on the black wire. Key is on and battery is diconnected. Is that truly a transistor with the arrow pointing to gnd?
Dan, it seem like 1.6 Meg ohms is too high. That is not in the normal range of what I have seen on the internet. I am refering to my volume 3 of the WCI Chevy 2004 Impala manual which is the authentic technical service info. There are two resistors in series with a transistor on the security sensor lead inside the passlock sensor. Not sure if you have the same 3 book set. this is located on page 11-191 of the theft deterent chapter. Technical page number is(NNN) NNN-NNNN On this page is the info I am speaking of. My question is what the meter should be set to...diode or 2M and is 1.6Meg ok?
I am getting 1.6 Million ohms which is far more than 30 thousand ohms. Should I try this size resistor? Also, do you have an email address so I can send a copy of my diagram to you. I tried word in this application and it wont accept my word doc.
