Default Remote Starter In A 97 With Passkey II

Any one ever do a self install?

I put one on the Burb this past weekend, and now I want one for the Bonneville

I know I am going to need something to take the place of the resistor in the key, but what else is there?

All input welcome

all you need to do is find the resistance of your current key.....and install a resisor in line with the VATS wires...the rest of the install should go like the suburban

do it right and put the resistor on a relay. the relay will put the resistor in place for the startup, then remove it. when you get in the car, you put the key in and turn to start, now everything is normal.

you could also just buy the bypass box.

get this and it'* a slam-dunk since it has a built in VAT bypass..... free install at Circuit City also(not sure if that deal is still going on or not)- the version I bought had keyless entry also(you didnt mention if you needed that or not)

I may do that being there is a lot less room to work in the car compared to the Burb. It'* a really nice feature to have here in the cold weather

My take... Dont' install a remote starter system if you're going to compromise the security features of your car. Make sure they're retained in their factory fashion, OR improved.

Use the relay and resistor or use a bypass module......Do Not permanently bypass the anti-theft system. If your car got stolen, insurance wouldn't cover it and you would kick yourself.
