Are you wanting to remove the fuel shutoff for a higher top speed? If so you have to take it to a shop that can flash/tune your ecu.


You can'y bypass it as it is part of the integrated programming, have you tried the reset procedure in the owners manual? Using the key, lock the doors, wait a few minutes then unlock the drivers door and recheck, if that is a no go, then repeat but unlock the passenger door first, if it is still activated then you will have to take to the dealer and have the system reflashed, this usually happens if the battery is disconnected for some reason.

My 2002 s10 zr2 security system shut off fuel last week, and I reset by locking and unlocking driver door three times. Today it did it again, and I reset by the 30 minute method, and it reset. I hope it lasts longer than a week.
