Under dash kill switch Chip

Lost Chip-No start

Under dash kill switch Chip

Postby myrnsterMash [OP] » Mar 25 2020, 10:47pm

Hello:
Yes, the greatest fear of having the removable, tiny, chip "thingy" that must be inserted to start my truck happened. It is lost, and those tricks of using a coin, aluminum foil feels stupid for thinking it would work. Is, there a way to bypass, or disengage it without damaging the stock theft deterrent system? I, am more of an engine "fixer," and electrical (other than replacing a fuse, or hooking up a speaker), is a little daunting.
I, need a starting point, because this is up to me to resolve. A schematic would help a lot to identify the wires (color), but do I need more than that? I, just need to follow the spliced wires, correct? :oops:

I approved your post but I sure as hell hope you're not sitting inside somebody's truck trying to steal it.

That would take a lot of ....you know. No, this was being paranoid parking on the street opposed to the driveway. I, always put it in a special place (in my purse/wallet), and went to start the truck, and it was not there. Not a thief, just stupid, sigh.

I'm getting the stealing it from someone they know kind of vibe. Like a family member, maybe on vacation or deployed.

They've been around for a long time. I remember someone I know had one on their bronco back in the 90s.

My boyfriend of, 8 years died from cancer, and left it to me if, you must know. I've been driving it everyday until this happened. Would a copy of registration, and insurance help ease your mind? A picture of me inside the truck holding the keys? Thumb print? I, am devastated as it is without being called a thief.This stupid virus has all businesses closed in CA, or I would have an alarm guy come out and help me. I, will find a way to do this before it gets towed, and before schools are reopened to take my daughter to school.
I, suppose my question is suspect, and did not think it through, but I, do not want this weighing on anybody's conscience, either. Nobody has ever lost a key, before, or forgot their combination? I, highly doubt this will post, but it does not matter. I need a resolution, and thought I could find it here.

I didn't need to hear that, and any questioning of it certainly makes me the jackass. At the very least, this is the internet, and nobody really knows anyone else, or any other person's situation. Especially on vehicle forums, things can be light. Perhaps you're not in the mood.

If you know where the splice wires are, you already have the idea. Perhaps you can find a model number on the female end of that chip, and you can find the installation instructions, (maybe a serial number), and try contacting the company for a replacement. The thing about those chips is that they are usually hidden. The idea is its supposed to be unknown and hard to see. If you already know where it is, It should be easy to bypass it. Its not about faking the chip, just bypass the whole thing.

This is on a 02 1500?

Why don't you take a picture of the slot that you insert said chip into... That might help.
