car would not start i needed a bypass

I have completed this repair on my own, and about 4 customers vehicles, it does happen often.
what the problem is the chip that is in the key is worn I did know that the Gm key with the chip in it is measured by resistants' it goes up too 15 well to solve this problem I purchase a small resistor and plug it into the wire that runs up too the key switch . the resistor has too be the same as the old key bottom line I eliminated the anti theft system on mine.

2015 Chevrolet Camaro 1,770 mi,
Turned into my drive way in my brand new Camaro and the entire car shut down. Had to have it towed to a nearby Chevy dealer. It took 2 mechanics and 2 and half hours to track down the problem. A little plastic piece the size of a adaptor plug in has shorted out. This plug in shorted out the anti-theft device , but when the piece was removed the car would start, they took a piece off of another Camaro and placed it on my car. I am scared to drive the car.
