Question about Cars & Trucks
The chip in the key is not a chip, it is a piece of resistive wire, the key reader See's the resistance of the key is correct and allows the car to start. The common cause of the problem you have is the reader in the ignition lock cylinder. You can't buy that part anymore so you must bypass it, this of course will disable the security system (called the VATS system). Here is how you bypass it, go here to read about the procedure.

your car security system can not be disable but it can be bypass
but firts on these models it is the pass key the problem
on your key to strt the car you have a little round black thing with a little metal contact this is a resistance that is in your key when you put it in the hole to start your car it mesure the ressistance
and the you can start your car
the usual problem with this system is that in the ignition key lock cylinder there are two wire
and usualy one of the two wire just cut so i would remouve the stearing wheel and get that wire fix
hope that will help you !!!
the way to bypass the system is easy but you need to realy know what you will be doing
first you mesure the ressistance in the key in (ohm) and second get a ressistance the same value from any places that sells electronics
after you will find in your car the passkey decoder module (behind right side of i/p)
the two wires that come out of the box (B7 ppl/wht and B8 wht/blk)
cut these two wires and weld the ressistance in bettwen
this way you won t have to take your stearing appart
and your system will be bypass for ever
great day to you
