His next step is to replace the ignition, which worries me because the boy does not know what he is doing, and has the patience of his father. But, he'* going to get one and try to read the FSM to figure it out, so I give him credit for trying. I'll let you know if it works...but not sure when he'* going to do it.
Not sure what you're saying. When it still won't start, does he get a security light on the dash? Or does it just not start. If there is no Security light, this is not a VATS problem.
If you are getting a Security light, replacing the ignition after bypassing the system will be a waste of money. Once the system is bypassed, the ignition switch is removed from the VATS circuit. At that time I would suspect the wiring harness the VATS ignition wires go into.
