1999 safari passlock

1999 safari passlock

Postby ninetwelver [OP] » July 2nd 2015, 8:48pm

Hello again. By a quirk in the universe I have gotten my safari back. But I am having problems with the pass lock. tried to reset by leaving key on position for 10 minutes shut off then turn back on till security light shuts off.

Dealer tells me that some sensor is burned out in steering column. but my keys do not have chips in them. also noticed that electric door locks dont work. Dealer says in will be $500.00 to fix.

Thanks in advance you folks have always helped.

Passlock Relearn:

Turn the key to Run, then VERY BRIEFLY turn it to start - do NOT let the van start - and back to Run. Leave it in Run for 10 minutes; the Security light will flash for the full 10 minutes (mine turned solid for the last 10 secs or so before it went out). When it goes out, turn the key to Off and wait 10 seconds. Do it again - turn to Run, briefly to Start, back to Run for 10 minutes. Turn the key to Off, wait 10 seconds. Do it again. This time, when you turn the key to Run, the Security light should be solid as normal and the van should start and continue to run.


Had to do this when I did ignition switch/lock cylinder replacement on my '99. My keys aren't chipped, either.

However, if your key is worn, no amount of Passlock relearn will help. You'll need a new key, one not cut as a copy of the old one. Dealers will cut a new key from the VIN if you show proof of ownership.

Forgot to add:

I have pics and descriptions of my work on the '99 here:

As for the door locks, make sure the fuses and relays are in working order, then check the wiring to the driver's door.

$500...for real? :eek: :screaming: :banghead:


This is why most people hate dealers.
How many sensors, fuses or computers does a Bw4472 need? Zero.

Mine has college girls in short pants and tank tops working as Valets when you pull up to the service dept. They still charge too much though.

I know it set me back when he said that. He was so sure how to fix. It appears to possibly be the key. BUT is there any truth in there statement that a sensor is bad in the column?. :liar:

OP hasn't been around for 6+years, probably won't get much in the way of a response from him.
