It sounds like you have a problem with the VATS system, you can repair the module. You can get rid of VATS, but ai don't recommend it-- you'll need HPtuners-- with HPtuners you can turn off the VATS system.

Is that something expensive to do? Are there any other methods to try to bypas this

HPtuners? About 300 for a used unit. Otherwise you may have to get a new ECU (read this a used or new) and have it programmed by the dealer--
