New V.A.T.S Ignition Key Set For   – 1997 – 2004 Corvettes

Vehicle Anti-theft System – Because 1986 and later Corvettes have specially coded ignition keys, it makes good sense to have a couple of spares. To order a key, have your local GM dealer measure the resistance on your key (it will be a 1 through 15 value code) and add that code to the part number. We’ll ship you the correct key which can then be cut by a local locksmith.

To measure your key resistor value, set your ohmmeter on 20K Ohms, place your measure needles on the metal prong (small metal lines that are placed in the middle of the black resistor), one needle on each side, compare the value you get to the closest one on the chart below and you found your key!

If you know your key VATS value or can measure your working key you can use the chart below and choose only the key you need.
