No way to get around any of that. New ignition parts from the dealer and a new key . Extra keys are dealer only since they have chips imbedded in them and need the key code read from the diagnostic port on the vehicle.
this is difficult because it's part of anti theft system , anyways this gismo works by a tiny chip imbedded into key , if you don't get a good "chip" car don't start , if your sure you got a good key/chip combo then clean the key hole contacts with spray electronic cleaner , most lock shops can help with the chip/key combo if thats dammaged
When the car was new it did have a chipped key. I don't know why they start sometimes without them, Faulty security? Anyway you will have to get a chipped key from the dealer or a hardware store. then do the relearn procedure. The procedure is , turn the ignition on for ten minutes, turn it off for five seconds, do this three times and after the third time the car should start. Make sure to keep the battery charged up because this will drain the battery. If it drains below 5 volts , you will have to start over.
(from autostalk.com) I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is, if you have the keys with
the small 'computer chip' on the black plastic part then your car is
equipped with a sensor in the ignition (where you actually put the key
into) that is supposed to be able to sense the key, to make sure its
the real key. In many cases, the wires from this sensor become loose or
faulty and will trip that light.
