Here's the story: my wife called me saying that the car wouldn't shut off. I asked if the car was in park, went through everything I could think of. I went to her place of employment to see if I could do anything to turn it off. Gear selector "button" down at the bottom of the shifter, under the sliding cover didn't do anything. No luck. I drove it home and after trying several times, I finally took the fuse out for the fuel pump after disconnecting the battery. I tried everything I found on the googler with no luck. As you can see, I removed the entire ignition cylinder and housing assembly in an attempt to get the cylinder out and replace it, re-keying it and letting the code learning begin. Obviously, the cylinder is still holding in place with the key. It's like Excalibur stuck in the rock.
My question is: is their ANY way to COMPLETELY bypass the password/passlock system on this '06 GP?
From what I've found, there is a way that has to do with cutting and rerouting a couple of wires but I'd rather not do that.
I can get a whole new assembly with everything, including the sensor on the side (I cracked the other one because, well, I know just enough to be dangerous) of the cylinder.
I'll have a locksmith rekey a new cylinder but if the whole thing can be bypassed, that would be a much better option for us since the key has been stuck before, but at least the car shut off & the key did come out eventually.
Thanks for any help in getting my butt out of this hole I dug even deeper than it was.
