Can we override the security system in a 1994 6 Speed Manual Transmission

10

Asked by Apr 24, 2015 at 08:11 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 1994 6 speed, manual transmission Corvette was stolen (key stolen, also).  After
about a year it was recovered without the key. (Yes, we have the title to prove it is our
vehicle). We have taken it to three dealerships and one locksmith to get the VATS
code, but nobody can get it.  Is this common?  Can anybody suggest what we can do
or tell us if there is a way we can override the security system?  We need to be able to
start it to see what the thieves have done in the way of damage to the engine. Thank
you.

Also, you can by a bypass module for about $260.00. Its a PITA to hook up but can be a DIY job. Look up Newrockies, Inc. for there Pro module.

There is one other way. You would have to take the upper dash apart. Find the yellow VATS box made by Bosch. Cut the two yellow wires going into this relay box and splice them together. This will tell the computer the right key is in.
