The 2002 Impalas have no no chip in the key however the ignition lock cylinder does enable and disable the theft system.

Yes, all 2002 Impala models have the PASSlock system.
The key has a chip that a sensor in the lock cylinder reads and sends a signal to the module to allow the engine to crank.
You can have a key cut without the chip to open the doors but not crank the engine.

SOURCE: lost keys ,,just got spare which is not chiped

sorry but there is no way around the chip. You have to go to the dealer and get a new transponder programmed to match the car.

Car wont turn over after replacing ignition switch

Do you mean the key switch. Read this.

HIGH SECURITY 'CHIP KEY' - By now, most people know their vehicle's high-tech keys are expensive at the car dealers- Now, you can get high-tech keys from us at a fraction of the cost. How does the high-tech key work? The key contains a tiny embedded electronic chip called a transponder. Each transponder has its own unique code--it's the key's 'fingerprint'. When the key is inserted into the ignition and turned, the transponder is energized and broadcasts its unique code to the car's receiver in the dashboard. If the car's receiver recognizes the code, it will allow the car to start. it is the ignition switch under the dash on top of the steering column it needs to be adjusted right.Go to and make an account and put in your make and model and click on repair manual it will show you everything on the car but you have to make an account it's free

My ignition was ripped out as someone tried to drive away in my Neon 2002. Tried to put the ignion back in in order to restart the car. It didn't work so good so I tried starting with a screw driver....

You need a new ignition lock with transponder chip and key with transponder chip. Then you need to pair them. You can either do this at a dealership, or you can disconnect the battery for 4 hours, put the ignition key in the ignition but not turned on, connect the battery, wait 15 minutes for the system to reset and pair and then cross your fingers.

Replace key for 2006 Camry. Do I have to go through a dealer?

the best thing is to go to your local toyota dealship! Have your Vin # ( on the lower right hand corner of the windsheild looking from the front of the car). Make sure that you write all the nimbers and letters correctly. They will either order you a new key and key pad or they will have one on site and make it work for your car!!
