Did 94s have alarms? Perhaps dealer installed or aftermarket? If you mean the VATS system, you can find info on my website.

VATS =

I hate it... always gives me the 'security' light and makes me wait 3 minutes to start my car. I'm disabling every aspect of the system this winter. It makes it harder for me to start my car than it would for a potential car theif.

thank you for the quick reply as always shoebox, i am talking about VATS on a 97 camaro (its my friends) if he would buy a new factory keypad from GM will that take care of his issues? (he lost his factory keypad) if not is there a way around this system? thank you again here is what he did so far...

1. used two different keys then waited 3 minutes for the alarm to turn off but... the security light kept flashing and we were not able to start the vehicle

Sorry, I ended up looking at your sig for the year.

I don't think the fob is going to have anything to do with the security light staying on. The mosts common problem is it not reading the key pellet.
