Thanks for all of the info on the car....great job there.....I really appreciate that.
Okay, let me understand; please correct me if I am wrong.
When you say it wouldn't start or turn over....you put the key in, turned it, the dash lights came on, the engine made no noise....no movement......no nothing......right?
You replaced the starter and ignition switch and still, you turn the key, dash lights come on, the engine doesn't make a sound or move.......right?
You found broken wires for the VATs.....I am not sure about the rewire......but we will press on.
Now when you put 12V right to the starter it moves....but the car won't run.....
When you turn the key on until the dash lights come on only.....do you hear the fuel pump come on and pressurize?
So, from the key - nothing......no engine movement......12V right to the starter it tries to start....right?
As for the VATs, that should only last about 3 minutes.......I attached that below.
The brain of the PASSkey(R) system is a special decoder module that reads the pellet resistance through the lock cylinder contacts. It then compares this key code with its own internal code.
If the codes match, the decoder supplies a ground for the starter enable relay and modulates a 5 volt reference signal (at 2.5 volts) from the ECM or PCM which will then pulse the fuel injectors.
If the codes do not match, the decoder module sets its internal timer which locks out starter operation and fuel enable for up to three minutes.
On the pic I have attached.....is your car doing which one....because this also talks about the security light on the dash at the same time.
There is also an ignition shut down relay.....you could replace it with a like one to see if that makes a difference. The pic is attached.
Have you tried checking codes by jumping the pins?
Okay, please answer all the questions.......and let's see.....
Again, great job on supplying information....
