While your waiting heres what you need to to.

Measure the resistance of the key. If you don't get a resistance (open) or zero (shorted) then you'll have to buy an assortment of resistors and try the bypass using the 15 different possibilities until you get one that works. They do not make the generic resistors in the exact ranges of whats needed. You'll have to 'make' what you need from the standard values. You may be able to get them from a remote start installation shop; they do this all the time.

If you do get a resistance and its in one of the correct ranges then you need to put the key in and then take another resistance reading at the connector on the end of the orange wire (the orange wire has two white wires inside by the way) which should still fall in the same resistance range that the key fell in. If its too high or no resistance at the connector, check/repair wiring before either bypassing vats or replacing the ignition cylinder.
