    Find the passtime device , it's usually under the dash near the ignition switch. You can trace it by following the wire from the remote eye. There are 5 wires with a plug connector plugged into the device. Leave the red, pink and black wires alone. The blue wire comes from your ignition switch and goes to a relay switch inside the device. The purple wire comes from that switch to your starter.

    Leave them cut from the device, but solder, (or connect in some manner) them together so that the passtime device is bypassed. Then your starter will get power when you turn the key. That's all there is to it.

    The passtime device will still appear to be functioning. It will beep and take codes from the remote, but regardless of whether it is timed out or not your starter will still get power.

    **IMPORTANT NOTICE**
    It should be noted that the passtime system is property of the dealership and removal of this device may violate your contract with the dealership and in some states is a punishable offense.

    This device is not the same device used to prevent drunks from driving their cars, this is a whole different device.

    This device stops you from being able to start your car if you are late on a car payment. They are installed in new and used cars. they have gps tracking as well so that if disabling the car doesn't make you pay then they can come pinpoint it and repo it.

    The dealerships are selling you cars with these, then after you pay charging another $500.00 to remove it from your vehicle.

    To top it off it is extremely hard to find out how to remove them for a customer. Which if you do this you must obtain legal documents from the customer and fill out forms to get the uninstall code from the manufacturer

    Sounds a bit shady to me.

    I like your style but when comes to cars it's a good idea to buy from owners and not dealers.
