: Where is the TDM located on a -95 fw?

05-19-11, 04:24 PM
So, my baby has some problems with the pass key stuff/thingy. It's very random, some days it works perfect and some days it takes 2-3-4-5 attempts before the (in)genious car understands that it is the correct person that wants to start her. I tried with the simple resistor bypass and it makes no difference, gives the same result.

I have now soldered a bypass circuit to get rid of the vats for good, but before I jump too high, where is the tdm on a 1995 fleetwood? My fsm clearly shows there is a Theft deterrent module, but it wont tell where.

Update, even though my fsm shows the tdm box on a picture together with the theft deterrent relay, there is none. Functions are in the central control module in the trunk. I hooked the bypass circuit on the corresponding wires on ccm and it worked all good, no more vats for me! :D

I have a 1990 Cadillac Fleetwood for drive and I cannot find a TDM where in your trunk was would you be specific. I am having a very stressful emergency here by trying to bypass the VATS system.

Update, I found the TDM box theft deterrent module on the 1990 Cadillac Fleetwood forward Drive. The box is located directly behind the relay panel underneath the dashboard on the right-hand side passenger right by the door. The reason I could not locate it is because I could not see it it is attached. How did I discover this was the correct box? I use the flashlight and a tiny mirror and where I saw the words pass key on the label. Once I reconnected the wires to the new Rockies pro module bypass system The vats system is completely disabled and the car starts normally. I now stand no chance of being stuck anywhere because of the vats system failing and I still have a working car alarm. I hope this information can help someone with a 1990 Cadillac Fleetwood forward Drive if they wish to bypass the vats system completely not just by putting a couple of resistors together. Thank you all for trying to help. It's about learning and Sharing.
