Bypass the ignition interlock system

Have a 1998 bluebird rear engine 72 passenger bus. In the process of painting the inside I cut some wrong wires and now I canít get my bus started. Anybody have any clue how to bypass the system some of us will start again? Any help would be appreciated

And they think I'm dumb for having the engine run while while cutting wires. You would have known right away which of the 20 wires you cut is the culprit.

Then what makes you think it was the wiring if it worked before and nothing changed to the wiring overnight?

Had a mechanic check it out and he says that is it but has no clue on how to by Pass. All else checks out. Can jump starter with a screwdriver runs good but wonít start with the key

I am trying to avoid making this weeks "my bus wont start" post.....

According to Kevin, If I remove the relay labeled "VandalLock" and jumper between the connections labeled "30" and "87A" it will bypass the interlock.
The relay was behind the drivers side front access panel. The one that holds the windshield wiper.

Getting closer, my relays appear to be in front by the windshield but none labelled that vanledlock but in the side fuse panel there are a red and white wire that comedown from a buzzer in the drivers elbow that buzzes when trying to start vehicle

That's probably not the reason.
