Hello! Behind the instrument panel just to the left of the steering column is the location of the Theft Deterrent Relay...Pull the relay...The wire colors on the relay socket are...Purple...Yellow/Black...And 2 Yellows...Cut the two Yellow wires free of the socket and splice them together (solder)...The Theft Deterrent System is now permanently bypassed.


I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Massage, pass key fault

there is a micro chip inside the head of the igntion key, when you put the key in the igntion the sensor inside the steering colunm will read the resistance of the micro-chip. If there is a match the engine will start. If for some reason the sensor will not read the micro chip the system will think some is stealing the car. I would try another key 1st, if this persist, the module will need to be replaced. Start with a new key, its cheaper.
You'll need to go a GM store parts departement with the old key, drivers license & registration for the dealer to cut a new key.
