    VATS help

    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.

    Any suggestions?

    I know the keys are like $40. to have cut but it may be worth it to keep your car running. and if you have some one else in your faimly with a gm and extra remote you can reprogram it to your car.
