E9033 and Pontiac wave /G3 immobilizer
Customer lost all Keys to their 2009 Pontiac Wave, a locksmith tried to program his keys to the vehicle but came up short. The vehicle was towed in for me to program the keys to the vehicle. However techline connect was giving the E9033 error message where you need to use old SPS1 to program the keys to the vehicle. Not wanting to wait on hold for 2+hours with GM techsuppprt to convince them I need access to sps1. I decided to show how we can get around the theft relearns with other tooling (Eeprom tools)
Someone just had a post on one of these looking to find out how we can program them, well here is an option. first remove the column covers to access the Theft deterrent module, remove the module to place on the bench, open module and remove the eeprom, read the eeprom with a eeprom reader writer. Save the file that we just read. Open the file in VVDI2 and clone the key information to a superchip. Re-install eeprom into Theft deterrent module , Re-install TDM onto vehicle and start vehicle with a new key and a super chip. = Done. Fairly quick and easy job and no waiting on phones with GM to download sps1 and then perform a theft relearn that would take another 12 minutes. Attached pictures/videos show the procedure from start to finish.
I hope this might answer some questions on these older key relearns.
Nice job Kevin!! Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge with everyone!!!
Kevin, Another application of the next level of car electronics repair. With a little investment, one can make themselves less reliant on the OEM. You have shared some really good learning on here. You are all about solutions and we need more solutions. Great work!
This is one of the most. Informative posts about this I've seen. Fantastic work! Is the superchip designed for a specific type of key head to be inserted into? Just curious how much of a process this might be to get the actual hardware for those of us that might not have special blanks for different manufacturers.
The VVDI SuperChips can be cloned to virtually any automotive transponder. They work really well
Ahh! the old idpro dinosaur. This was before the logikey penloaders and ar32.
The IDpro or TL866+ has a great selection of manufactures and with the latest software or even hardware (T56) it adds a whole bunch of extras supported devices. The best part about the IDpro /TL866+ is the fact it runs off a USB port and the software is windows based Unlike the archaic parallel port or dos programs.
