I bought this bypass module to bypass my security issue on my 01 ws6. I got it today but it has like 12 wires and I don't get the insturctions.
If anyone has experience with this please let me know.

Instructions are available on the xpresskit web site. Just search Google for it.

Yes, I saw them. Since I'm not installing an aftermarket alarm with a auto start feature, I wasn't sure if I have to hook into my starter wires. I just wanted to bypass the vats, what seems to be my issue...
Have you installed these?

No not yet but I'm planning on one soon. That's how I knew the instructions were on thier site.
If your vats is acting up the easiest way to just bypass it would be with resistors or have it tuned out.

VATS can't be tuned out on an f-body. It's controlled by the BCM which is not programmable (as opposed to the PCM which is what tuners work on). You can program the PCM to ignore the missing fuel enable signal from VATS in the BCM but you can't program out the starter relay disable in the BCM. So you're stuck with the resistor method.

Yea that's what I thought but I have heard a few people tell me they had it tuned out.
Live and learn I guess.
