    There are plenty of blank gold keys on e-bay, the price starts from $19+$10 S&H (for me in Canada, for you in US may be way less) for the full VAT range. For $39 you get a pair (ignition + doors). Just search for "Cadillac gold key".

    Ok, so got the new ignition cylinder a few weeks ago and haven't had time to doing the replacement which i'm hoping to do so Friday. Alldata is useless doesn't show crap on it, only labor times for steering column lock. So here i am asking you fine folks.

    How the hell do i do this? lol

    My wife's 96 Eldo is getting the security message, when using the spare key it is the same. Suppose that means it is the cylinder. I see mention of a vats bypass, what is that process? Thanks!

    Do a search for bypass vats. Read carefully as if you cut the wrong wire bad things happen. Basically you find the resistance of your key pellet and solder resistors together to same and put these in the wiring loop to lock, cut tap in at the base of steering column.

    DO NOT get suckered into buying any of the "kits" you'll run across when you do the search. You'll just end up paying $60 for a $2 resistor that you can get from Radio Shack.
