95 riviera no crank
95 Riviera supercharged. Car sat 7 years. Just purchased. Chip missing out of key. Want to bypass vats so it'll crank. Need to know location of crank enable relay. Gonna buy a bypass for fuel injection shut down.

RE: 95 riviera no crank
My sources note two possible locations, although that may be just poor pictures. One says inside the right side kick panel and the other seems to show it directly above the door chime. Both of my (poor) sketches seem to indicate a small square relay with a single multi-pin plug.

If you hunt around the web there are many DIY articles on how to bypass the VATS for good. Most would be rather cheap too.

Most articals I've read say about wiring in a correct resistor under the column. No idea what correct value is though. Lol

RE: 95 riviera no crank
Maybe this will help? The link requires knowing the resistor value but they show a chart using the OEM key number, which a dealer might be able to help you find via the VIN or perhaps you have that info hand written inside the owner's manual. (people did stuff like this)

BTW, there's only a limited number of resistor values so if all else fails buy the value pack at Radio Shack for a couple of bucks and go down the list till one works. You will need to wait like 3 minutes between attempts so the system resets. Yeah, that's a pain but how many choices do you have unless you call a lock smith. (read: $$$)
