Okay so i lost my GM key and remote to my car. my car came with a offbrand copy (no remote though). And the key doesnt work in my car. It has a couple times but will not work every time like the GM key did.
So i need to bypass my vats. If my key doesnt work. How am i supposed to figure out which resistor(s) to use?
I use my multimeter to get a reading from the key and it doesnt read at all sometimes and sometimes it just bounces around a lot (nothing even somewhat consistent).
I went and bought a shitload of resistors because i was just planning on taking what i didnt use back, and i dont even think i got the right ones. The idiots at radio shack didnt even know what resistors were.

I know they cost alot but go get another key made at a Gm dealer buy a remote to and program it to the car should be no more problem.

Cant you call GM and give them your VIN and get the ohm reading that your key had?

Thanks for your help
