SOURCE: Bought a valet key for 2000 Buick (lost original

The only 2 options you have at this point are as follows, Hope to some higher power you find the key, or take it to the dealer and have a new key cut and chipped, im sure that it has a securilock system, that makes it tough, Although the key itself isnt very expensive, you have to have a key cut by code, There is a special code designated to your key that can be looked up by the vin number of the vehicle and can be cut and programed that way.

when you say "froze up"can you turn the engine over by hand?if it won't start with a key the maybe your battery and/or connections need attention or was there a flood while you were gone,for instance was the car full of water when you opened the doors?Did someone else drive it?seriously,do the dash lights come on?do the interior lights come on?As far as why,well ones never knows why things happen,lets just call it providence.

My friend has a Lincoln IS 2000 model and lost his key. Is there a way to bypass the pcm or the electronic key? He has the valet key? But it doesn't let it start. thank you

No there isn't. The anti-theft system is there to stop exactly what you are trying to do. You need a dealer, the VIN Number and a new Fob programmed.

Key chip got smashed how can i bypass it to start my car

You need two keys programmed the same, for an

You get two keys & a valet, when the car is new

I bought a new key at the dealer & programmed

I have a 2000 dodge intrepid. The alarm never worked on it. We bought it used and all of a sudden when we go to unlock the door it turns on. Now the car won't start. I've looked online for answers and...

The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

  1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
  3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
  4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
  5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.

have to do it in this order

Will a 1997 Town car shut off after awhile when using the valet key or a copied key? The dealer told me he thought it might.

No it will not. The only difference with a valet key is should not be able to open the glove box or the trunk. If you copied it valet key, it'll do the same as a valet key. If you copied the original key, then it will do the same as the original key. I don't know why the dealer told you this because it is not true. If the car starts, then the issue is not with the key.
