    Those eBay modules are old an outdated. If you are considering one of those passlock 2 can be bypassed using two relays and a resistor and save you the money. Now you could purchase and xk01 which is a flash module one which the default firmware is that for your vehicle. Not only does it save you the need to flash it but it will also interface you door locks, door trigger, trunk release, trunk trigger and a few other things that alarms need to be connected to. This will make your install much easier.

    If you ghetto bypass the Passlock system like that you disable the vehicle's stock security system. The bypass on ebay is fine, it still works great and is not that hard to install. Don't confuse low-tech with outdated, in the end if it performs it's functions, who cares? We tried to use a "homemade" bypass on my buddy's car and spent forever trying to get it to work (which we never did). In the end that $30 bypass was a much better option and we wished we would have just bought it in the first place.

    Using two relays and a resistor will not disable the factory security in anyway as it is doing the exact same thing as a "lowtech" interface module which is simply a pair of relays and a variable resistor which ive had fail more times than I can count. I have yet to have to have a car comeback on me using the relay and resistor method. The interface module I listed is more ideal for a novice installer than a 555l due to there being only one wire to interface with the vehicle. I use the term outdated because that what it is, I am confusing nothing the industry is stepping away from manual bypasses such as the 555l and moving on to data interfaces such as the xk01 suggested. If you and your friend struggled to use the relay and resistor method you either had something wired incorrectly your metered your resistor value incorrectly which is a common mistake.

    DERECTED XK01 XPRESSKIT DOOR LOCK ALARM INTERFACE KIT | eBay

    $9 more but makes for an easier more reliable install by not requiring relays and resistors for doorlocks or the isolation of door triggers to prevent false alarms caused by a sleepy bcm. Not to mention that year impala is one of the more irritating dashes to work under due to the fact that the bcm is against the fire wall and pretty difficult to access
