Ok guys I created an account because it seems like no one knows this answer.

There is a bypass that directed makes and it uses one of your keys. There is a "nipple" on the side of the key that makes contact with a metal ring around the key cylinder. There is also a small electrical charge running through the key also. So in order to make it work you have to solder the tip of the key and the nipple to the bypass in order to make it work. You then connect that to the wires attached to the key cylinder. We have a digram at work I will see if I can get if you guys want it.

I've seen that but do you know anyone who actually has one of those installed and working on a 04-06 GTO?

Yes coworker did one. There is a diagram out there that shows that you can bypass it by cutting the purple key sense wire and running that to the relay. That diagram is garabage but this works. The key has a constantly changing risistance, that is why you have to solder the key in the circuit.

Wouldn't that end up in such a way that anyone with a remote from one of those systems would be able to start your car?

No because each remote start system has its own unique frequency. Just like how your key does not unlock anyone else GTO. It does mean however if someone was able to pick the ignition cylinder and get it to turn the car would start because it thinks the key is always in the ignition. It would be very hard to pick the ignition cylinder because it is hard to pick a flat key ignition.

I would think a car thief would just pop the ignition and with the key already locked and loaded he'd have one less step to deal with. I'll pass........

Yeah by-passing the theft system is not a good idea on a car that not designd for remote start. Also if you have a manual shifted car its not a good idea.
