    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.

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.

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)

I have a 2004 passat that I was told had to have the battery cable replaced due to corrosion. The dealer advises that it will cost $350 for a cable as VW no longer makes the battery cable. Does it make...


The cable would cost $40.00 and if you take it to any auto repair shop and have them change it they may charge you at the most $150. so there is your saving.
f you dont mind me asking what is the resistance in the old cable, and why do you have to change the whole cable?
