My Wagon died today, I'm sure its the pass key VATS system. I read all the stuff on the forum and will do the resistor bypass. I metered my key and have 7,500 ohms resistance. My qusetion is how the heck do I go about figuring out what resistors I need. I messed with the online calculators but I'm not understanding the science to it. I've basically been doing trial and error for the last hour. Does anyone know the smart way to figure out what I need to input in the calculation tables or tell me what I need to buy. Thanks

problem solved.

Spoke to a guy at radioshack on the phone for about an hour. We found out that if I solder 2 15K ohms resistors in parallel it would give me a 7.5k ohms resistance. I did that and it did the trick. .80 Cents for two resistors. Sweet.
