yes its possible to disable the alarm immobiliser ,remove the ECU unit .then solder in a 12v supply from the on side of ignition,find a suitable connection in the wiring harness feed and solder to a switching transistor on the side of unit with a heat sink to the base connection of a transistor that controls the feed to another three transistors ,starter motor earth for relay,fuel pump earth relay,and ignition ,no relay and away you go location of transistors iam not saying as i dont wont the car theives reading it ,but its as easy as falling off a log when you know the colour of the wires, pin numbers and a magnifying glass soldering iron .took me hours to follow the the connections in the fuse box separating the two halves to follow circuit,tracing wires back to ECU then following printed circuit but i have done it .SO DEALERS EAT YOUR HEART OUT ANOTHER FOOD WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT JOB LOST .going to try it out on a dammed renault when i get time.Also sell the details over the internet ???? no i dont think so iam just glad i have pissed off the local dealers that wanted 200€

The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

Can you bypass the security system on a 2006 buick lacrosse. I don't have a passkey just a regular key and now it's saying starting disabled and the vehicle wont crant


No you can't bypass anti-theft systems as they are designed to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

Do you mean a 'valet key' that will just open the doors and glove box? Rather than a full starting key. I have never heard of a 'passkey' on a vehicle.

Contact a dealership with the vehicle VIN number and they will make you a key.that has the anti-theft chip in it. They aren't cheap but it is the only way if you have lost the original.

How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

How to bypass anti theft in 2004 ford taurus?


You can not disable it so let's start now to get to the problem//// A.do you have original transponder keys or aftermarket (if aftermarket check to see if it has a battery in the key by looking at the bottom of the key for tabs that will open it////next was the battery disconnected before this happened and you don't have a key fob and the alarm sounded if so you need to buy a fob and go through the programming process in the owners manual (you can download it from ford owners.com)then after programming the remote disconnect the battery cables and wait 3-5minutes then reconnect them when the alarm or horn starts shut it off using the key fob remote this will take you out of theft mode /// if you lost your keys a locksmith is needed do not mess with this system it will cost you a lot of $$$$ to fix it

On start flashing theft light on 02 windstar


I just had this same thing happen with my Ford Taurus, and it turned out to be a bad key. The repair shop switched back and forth between two different keys we had with us 10 or 12 times, and it always started with the good key, never with the "bad" key. They said if the theft light is flashing quickly, that means the anti-theft system is engaging. If the anti-theft light just lights up, that is normal.
