You have the Pass Key system to prevent theft.

The way to do it is you insert the key, try to start, and nothing happens. Wait 3 minutes, with same key, it should start.

You can buy just the tumbler set and this will include a new chip socket and a new key. If your real nice to the parts man at the dealer, he might cut you two extra keys. Be sure to take your original key for comparision so as the dealer can give you the correct chip in the key. Any GM dealer can do this,

I did this to a friend's Cadillac and it cost me a total of $50.

Thumbs up

Ok went to a car show yesterday, And there was a guy who had a 92 rs with a 3.1`v6.
He switched it to a 355 very nasty cam in it. I ask him about the chip and he said he by passed it. Havent tried it yet but he said. Unplug wire the 2 yellow wires are to the ignition at the bottom of the colum. Unplug and cut it take your old key with the chip and sorder it one wire on each side of the chip. Put another ignition in or youse your old one and it finds it signal and stars up. Sounds to good to be true ill will try it tomorie .. Has any one tried this before.
