    Don't quote me but I think it was around $200. Yeah it was a bit expensive but I think that $200 is better than having it not start somewhere or sometime when I really would have needed it to.

    If your trying to start your car and nothing is happening not even a clicking sound then chances are it's the vats, the best and cheepest way to fix that imo is to bypass it alltogather.

    Prob gonna be over $100 when you could bypass it for a few dollars with no problems.

    The ignition lock cylinders are EXTREMELY common on these cars. There are 2 very small wires that go to the cyl that read the chip and they become frayed and eventual break (causing a no start).
