    I am sorry for not explaining more thoroughly. I have cars that have the chip in it and I wanted to know if you can do anything to use an ordinary made key without a chip. Thanks

I've lost my keys to my 2004 Chrysler Sebring. Is there anyway to starty car without it?

No. The key has a chip in it and no other key will work. You have two choices, both are expensive.

First is have your Sebring towed to your dealer, they will look up you VIN and cut two new keys and then program them to your car.

The second (and this may be a little cheaper) is to find a local locksmith in your area, that can cut Chrysler keys, to come to your car, cut two new keys and then program them to your car.

Can't offer an accurate price but I would imaging the dealer cost will be in the $300 range (plus towing). Need to call around and get prices.

I have lost my chipped key but have an unchipped spare is there anyway to bypass the chip to use the key I have

Nope... You would have to know the resistance of the original chip and then tap a resistor of the same ohms into the security system to by-pass it

I have a 2003 Ford excursion and somebody tried to steal it and break the ignition my key won't work for it and they also broke the transponder module is there anyway to get around that please help

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.

Anti theft system

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

The shut down problem for 2002 cavaliers address a chipped key re-learn. however my keys are not chipped, any other solution? my cav has all the symptoms of the anit theft shut down

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.

Got a 2002 cavalier, lost the original key, had keyless entry not from the factory, anyways, key goes in and turns, lights, everything works but wont start, is this a chip computer problem. What do I...

It could be a chip computer problem. The new key is cut right, but the chip is not coded into the computer. Must go to dealer to have this procedure done.

I have a 94 pontiac firebird the security light comes on now i wait 3 minutes and it will start sometimes i have to wait 2or3 times to get it to start when the light is on it does nouthing

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.
