Does anyone know if the single wire that runs off the ignition lock cylinder is able to be replaced? Mine as turned to dust. I cant really find anything on it, its a single black/ purple wire that clips onto the lock cylinder.

I'm pretty sure that wire is only for the chime when the key is in the cylinder and the driver's door is opened... Nothing too critical unless you are forgetful Wink

Thanks for the info. Won’t be using it anymore unless I can make something work.

Mine worked so infrequently it was annoying, so I disconnected it for good. It does nothing else but what vegas suggested.

This new start chamber fixed my concern where my unique keys were causing the counter robbery light to squint. The first passlock peruser at long last gave out and was continually not allowing me to begin my vehicle. This is an ideal fix and it was extremely easy to supplant.

I interpret this as a scam/joke/not real.

It's almost like a translator was used along with a horrible thesaurus.

Maybe it’s ChatGPT. Very primitive attempt if it is.
