Sure does.... Sounds like a VATS issue, however I'm no authority on it.

I beleive the solid light means that the VATS did not read the proper value from the pellet or remote (whichever was used) and that keeps you from starting it for about 2-3 minutes.

hmm... so if i understand right... the pellet is just a resister and when they bypassed the VATS system they spliced in another resister of the same rating to immitate the key. so if they one in my key is going bad, and they took their reading off that key, the resister they spliced in might not be exactly right... wow, newer cars are complacated... maybe i'll try using my other key too...

any suggustions on how to clean the inside of the ignition?

Not sure myself, check this thread on how to clean up etc.

I would think they got the right value testing your key. My idea is there is a loose connection somewhere.

well with what you guys had told me about the VATS thing and the security light i was able to explain this to the install guys where i bought my remote start. they checked the resister that they had put it and found it to be really close to the outter tollerance so he found a better match and used that one. so far no problems. thanks!

On the resistor. The values are listed around here somewhere and you can only be about 5% off. If there is a poor connection somewhere else in the wiring of the car, it could have caused you to have been out 6% and having the occasional issues.

Glad to hear it'* fixed up.
