    Have you thought about contacting him and have him send the keys back? Or make a second set and send those?

First off you wont be able to without causing damage. If you want to drill out the lock tumbler pins, then u can start with no key, or you can be a brute and just smash a screwdriver into the tumbler till it breaks and you can turn the screwdriver like a key. If for some reason the stearing lock is not engaged, or you can disable it another way, you can hot wire the car at the ignition switch, by twisting the constant hot, (red probably) with the other hot, (probably red/ white) and touching the starter wire to this splice until it starts, then remove starter wire. starter wire vary's in color, may be brown.

Lmfao... so this kid wants to steal the Eldorado, well he will need a tow truck, first off if you do not have the key with the matching RFI chip in it, you can have an exact copy of the key and it still will not start, so forget hot wiring it and forget going to the dealer to get a key cut because each RFI is dedicated to that car alone. The dealer will not give you a matching RFI for the new key needing to be cut unless you are the REGISTERED OWNER OF THE VEHICLE!!!. Then they are going to charge you over 300 dollars for the chipped key. So that car is not going anywhere until Daddy hands over the keys. Besides if he is looking to buy a cattle gate he is probably on a farm and i dare you to name me any farmer without a pickup in the yard. Second he has his own car and has no need for Daddy's Cadillac. Third, can't you remember being 15 and wouldn't you have loved to take out your fathers car while he was away ? Please do not tell kids how to steal cars, besides none of you gave him any information that would work.

94 jeep grand cherokee was running great got up the next morning to find its not firing anymore what couldve happened

why not answer simple questions first?
how many miles ? on this car?
no engine stated 4L or 5.2L???????????????????????
I guess you are working with no scan tool.?
NO voltmeter
I see now the only fact we have is the single
outside, spark coil is dead. 1 fact.
if its good (simple tests, ohm out the primary and secondary yet>?)
so that means the ECU is cutting spark
In fact I bet the ASD relay is not energizing
or is dropping out while cranking.
if the ASD drops, spark ends, a fact.
if the ASD drops you must scan it or use the key jive test (key on 3 times)
If the ASD drops do not buy a new PCM

the ASD drops for many reasons up to 8.
including VTSS errors. (yup)

1: ckp dead.
2: cmp dead
3: TPS pin 2, throttle angle at 100% or near 5v.
new 1volt is correct , foot off gas pedal.
4: If PCM see's spark is dead, it cuts fuel.with ASD
the ASD logic uses a 3 second rule.
all the above, must be good or it drops
when it drops vast things go off line,
fuel, and spark and more. its for crash protection
no crash and burn as seen on TV, and USA law.

did you pull out the CKP ,with 1 bolt type, and slotted hole?
did you pull out the distributor then not prevent loss of injector timing, oops2.
IS the cluster warning lamp on "SECURITY"
oops VTSS is un happy if yes, it can be bypassed
on this wire. below, VT/YL

Why cant i just use my key to start my car without it being programmed

That is the anti-theft safeguard in all newer cars. Only the dealer can program your key to to "TALK" to the car's computer. I don't when or why your problem began nut that is the solution.

I have lost my 1 & only key to my 1998 GMC1500 4x4 truck. The doors are locked & I have no keys. How do I get a key made without a key & how much will this cost me?

On a truck that old, your only option will probably be a locksmith. Dealers keep key codes for about 5 years.
Price depends on your location. Call around.

Keyless entry stopped working

Check fuse #19 in the rear fuse panel. If OK, you may have a bad Lift Gate Module (LGM) or a broken wire in the wire harness between the lift gate and the body (in the area of the rubber boot)
