The PCM doesn't like being scanned or read all the time type thing...i remember..The Aeroforce kit, there is something special for the Bonneville..is there not?
That is the same question I have too... I read through the owner'* manual:

It says it turns off 12 seconds after the engine turns off. Is this long enough to cause problems with the security system?

I'm really considering buying one of these, unless anyone has any good reasons otherwise.

Ok, so I e-mailed the manufacturer on these scanguages on the VATS issues. This is what I got back (after 5 days of waiting )

Joshua,

The only problem we have seen with VATS is a conflict that sometimes occurs between it and the CAN protocol. In 2002, the SAE added CAN to the allowed OBDII protocols. To do this they assigned pins 6 and 14 for CAN. Before this, these pins were not assigned and the OEMs were allowed to use them for whatever they wanted to. GM had been using them sometimes to set the clock and others for the security system. This situation created an occasional problem.

We can supply a special "non-CAN" cable if this is a problem. Pins 6 and 14 are not connected in the cable.

Ron
Sounds like they should be ok, but if you use this on a 2002 and newer car, you might want the other cable...
