No, it has to be programmed by a locksmith to make it work in your vehicle. Call a locksmith and get it cared for so you can drive your toy. About $100 is what I last paid for this service, and I can fix anything. May as well do it ya know.

You can't do that on your vehicle ! What problem are you having ? Security light lit on the dash ? Lost key ? Probably need ignition lock cylinder , when you stick the key into the lock cylinder there are contacts inside that read the resistor on the side of the key > These contacts wear out , wires break . You can buy a new lock cylinder , if that is the problem or buy a resistor of same value at radio shack an solder it into wire harness . There are videos on youtube on how to do it.

Fuse for transmission pump ? no such thing.

There is no programming or relearn for that vehicle. Unlike some of the newer passlock and passkey systems, your VATS system is not something that can be reset. It either works... or not. You may have a bad key, ignition, or theft deterrent module. You will need to find the failed part or bypass the system entirely.

The Personal Automotive Security System (PASS-Key II?®) is standard equipment on the vehicle. The system is designed to prevent vehicle theft by disabling the engine unless an ignition key with a specific electrical resistance is used in the ignition cylinder. The PASS-Key II?® system and the universal theft deterrent operate separately. The universal theft deterrent system is optional. The PASS-Key II?® system includes the following components:
The ignition key

The ignition cylinder

The body control module (BCM)

The starter relay

The powertrain control module (PCM)
