Well I did, that'* what I'm having trouble with from time to time now is the BYPASS resistor - I guess I kind of garbled that up. I am so sick of this %*#()&%*!!! VATS...so I wondered whether that PROCEDURE you posted would work for learning the resistance value in this junkyard column I have in the car. ???
Of course, since I have determined the correct resistance value and have the correct key pattern (with the wrong resistance) for the car, I could have somebody cut the correct key with the correct value...but that would cost MONEY
