Question about 2000 Ford Mustang
What exactly does this chip do? How can i tell if i have one. I recently broke the tip of my ONLY key in the ignition, it still starts but now im not able to lock my doors??? MAKES ME WONDER WHY I HAVE TO PAY SO MUCH FOR A REPLACEMENT KEY???
You should get a spare key while you still can make a copy of the one you have now.
The chip is in the black plastic part of the key and sends a signal to the security system on the car to allow it to start.
Some locksmiths and the dealer can make you a new key with the correct chip. A key without the chip will not allow the engine to start.

Tips for a great answer:
The short answer is you can't!
All modern cars have alarms and immobilizers. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. If both are present, the ECM (engine control module) releases power to the ignition circuit. When you turn the key, the starter spins the engine and you get a spark. If any one of those three items are not in the chain, you get the engine to turn, but no spark. There is no way to beat the system.
The immobilizer is in place to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

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. ikeyless.com-----If it is the ignition switch under the dash on top of the steering column it needs to be adjusted right.Go to Autozone.com 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
