This story comes to us from Jeffrey Aragon in New Mexico about his 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood with a 350 engine. Like a lot of people, Jeffrey was skeptical and found himself kind of scared to purchase our Pro Module. He discussed the situation with his wife and they came up with a plan of action.

The Dealer even told him to scrap the

This story comes to us from Mike Rutledge of EL SEGUNDO California about his wife’s 2004 Saturn Ion.

With a coffee in my hand and my head in the clouds (or vice-versa I don’t remember…), I get out in the morning breeze ready to face my new day, but just in time to discover that my 95 LeSabre that always
The Untold Story Behind GM Security Systems
Beware of the so called GM factory security systems or immobilizers, they hide behind many different names given by the auto industry to make them look more effective and advanced.
