I'm not sure what you are meaning. Are you wanting to bypass the VATS system? This is the security system that reads the key chip resistance and makes sure it's the right amount to match whichever one of 15 choices the car is set to need.
Do you have a key that works? You will need it to read the resistance to know which key will need to be cut to match the cylinder.

#5 of 16 Possibly Pass Key III issue?
Aug 21, 2008 (4:45 am)
I am a proud owner of a 2001 Buick Park Ave (Std., not Ultra}
My fuel gage was pegged so I installed a different speedometer/gage assembly from a 2003 P.A., salvage yard purchase. At this time I also changed the factory radio to a factory radio that has a C.D. player. It appears that the fuel gage and radio function just fine. The problem is that now when I turn the ignition to on, all of the system check light activate, but when I turn the key to start all the display goes out and there is no attempt to start the car. Next I walked the original fuel gage counter-clockwise back to empty and reinstalled the original speedometer cluster. The same symptoms exist, but the fuel gage works. Is there an issue with the Pass key III security system? Please share any thoughts! Thanks, Dave

Can someone tell me if a replacement can be made ( using the VIN) without taking the vehicle to a dealer?

>At this time I also changed the factory radio to a factory radio that has a C.D. player.
I believe the radio is part of the car's security system. I suspect taking it out affected that operation.
Put the original radio back in.
If you change the radio I'll bet it will require a dealer to reset the system. At least it will take someone with
Tech II to do that.

Homelink.com has instructions.
You hold the two outside buttons for 20 seconds up to 30 seconds till the red light blinks to clear the settings in all three from the previous owner.
Then you hold your transmitter next to the unit and press the button on the unit and the button on the transmitter. Hold till the light blinks fast.
