I really don't think it is something you can bypass, at least not in the traditional sense of the term.
Here is a summary of how the Sentry Key system operates: each key has an internal chip which is programmed with a particular code. The engine controller has this code number written into its memory. Every time the engine starts, the computer sends an ID request to the key. When the ID comes back to the controller, it checks for a match. If the key is valid, everything continues as normal. If there is a discrepancy, the engine is turned off.
I remember 10 or 11 years ago when a customer bought a then-new Chrysler 300M and wanted an aftermarket remote start system installed in it. The installer came out and added the system like normal, only to discover the Sentry Key system would shut down the car each time you remote started it. He spent an entire Saturday afternoon trying to find a way to bypass it, all to no avail. The customer was insistent on having their remote start, so the installer did the only thing that worked--he had us cut an extra Sentry Key and program it, then he duct taped it to the metal steering column underneath the plastic shroud. Now that the computer could "see" a valid key, the remote start worked perfectly. (Of course, this completely defeated the anti-theft benefit of the system.)
You may need to do something similar.
