DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
Vehicles are equipped with Personalized Automotive Security System (PASS-Key II(R)). PASS-Key II(R) system operates using sensing contacts which are located in ignition key lock cylinder. These contact a key resistor pellet which is located on the ignition key. When lock is rotated, battery voltage is applied through appropriate fuse to PASS-Key II(R) decoder module. Pellet resistance is then compared with programmed value in module.
