Go to the rear of the ignition switch you have to look up from under the drivers foot well ,pull off the plug now you see the electrical part of the ignition switch remove the two screws holding it on to the rear of your ignition switch ,lift it off now put the wiring plug into your electrical part of your ignition switch turn that to start the you can start it.the trouble is your steering lock is still on .so now look with care at your ignition ,you should see a pin holding the barrel on .push in the pin to remove the barrel so now you can drive the car.go to a car breakers and get a barrel and key.

Hi i lost my key for my 2001 venture and i damage the ignition key, how can hotwire?

Go to a breakers yard and get a new ignition key and lock. Hotwiring a car is not as easy as they make it look in the films. You have to get power to the ignition circuit, you also need to light up your dashboard and stuff which is key dependent. When you have done that, you have to energise the starter motor and stop it when the engine fires. And talking of fires, they can happen during hotwiring!

Can I hotwire my isuzu rodeo 04. I lost my only key(no chip) to my isuzu but still have access into the car. Knowing it's primitive design despite it's year. I was hoping to just have it hotwired.

This truck does have an anti-theft system. I believe but am not certain that it actually counts the time it takes for the ignition to go from off to on. Anyway its really not worth fooling with the complicated isuzu system. Mobile lock smith would run around 70-80 cdn to cut a new key on the spot locally.

Lost keys need new key/hot wire

hotwiring it wont do as it probably has a steering colum lock too. meaning you wont be able to steer it. call a tow company and tow it home if you cant find the key

How to sTart if lost key?

Impossible to hotwire unless antitheft system is bypassed. The key holds a transponder in it that is a crucial part of the antitheft system. Without the key or bypassing the antitheft, the vehicle will not run.

I lost my ignition key to my 1996 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0L automatic, and I am trying to start my truck so I can even try to get another key made. But I was wondering if there is a way to start my truck, like...

The best solution I can offer is to take your vehicle registration and your picture ID to your local Ford dealer. They will be able to cut you a new key by using the VIN on your registration. The picture ID is needed because they are not supposed to cut new keys for anyone except the registered owner of the vehicle. This method is the only solution that will guarantee that no damage will be done to the truck.
NOTE: this may not work if the ignition tumblers/cylinder have been replaced before.

Has this been helpfull? If so, please take a moment
