    I need some f****** help

    This whole VATS thing is really pissing me off. I followed the whole bypass thing and tried several different resistors and several different ways including soldering them on and in series etc etc etc etc and nothing is working at all. Plus i think i fucked my ingition wires up (the two white ones).

    You're doing something wrong, probably wrong pelet value. You plugged them into the BCM side of the harness, right?

    the 2 white ones (in the orange sheath) are your vats wires on the column side. Start at the beginning first.....what resistance does your key pellet have? Do your resistors add up to that? How are you connecting them? Are you trying to stick them in the back of that plug like the sticky or did you cut the wires? I'll tell you how I did mine.
    I cut the 2 white wires (in th orange sheath) about 1.5" from that plug. I then soldered the resistors in a series ( end to end) between those white wires and plugged it back in.

    First i tried sticking it in the plug but i tried that a good 25 times and it wouldnt work so i tried soldering them on the white wires but the wire on those is really thin and the heat from the solder gun cut them in half basically... The head of it is totally cut off from the wires now.

    it only takes a little solder to tack that in place.....if you're having problem soldering it just wrap it and tape it into place. You could even use a small wire nut.

    o ya i kno, i melt a piece of solder onto the tip of the gun and just stuck it on there and it stayed but after doing it over and over it burned the wire right in half...

    i have a 12k ohm resistor that messured out to 11.9 ohms and i soldered it to the 2 white wires and then plugged it in and im getting nothing....

    Hopefully its something like this. Connect the 2 white wires to each end of the resistor

    The other thing to try is to measure your spare key also just to make sure you trying the correct resistance.

    Did you flux it? If the iron is fully up to temp it should only take less than a second or two for the solder to make the "jump" from the gun to the wire and spread out. Solder follows heat and flux travel..
