Ok I just replaced my ignition lock and keys after my car left me stranded for some reason the key would not turn I'm guessing the tumblers went out. Well I spent the $155 for the part installed it everything went right back together fine. I read you have to reset the security system so it would take the new key which you try to start it leave the key in the ON position an leave it til the security light stops blinking usually takes about ten min. You do this three times for a total of 30 min an Im not getting anything. No cranking at all no noise except the fuel pump. I heard there may be a way to bypass the pass lock system with a resistor or something. If someone could help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any responses.
You have to wait the full ten minutes on each cycle of that reset or it won't work. Give it another shot and make sure you turn the key 10 minutes apart. Also make sure you aren't opening and closing the door to do it, that can also mess it up.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
