The resistor bypasses the VAT. Therefore the key doesn't need reprogramming. By measuring key resistance and putting a resistor of equal valve into ignition wiring reprogramming key not needed. Also the security light would be flashing.

Does the car crank atleast?

It does nothing. I've checked all relays and fuses and all are good. Checked the relays with alligator chips and 12 volt as well as multimeter.

Make sure that the car is in parking. Maybe it needs adjusting
