No, the chip will not cause you not to be able to turn the ignition. The new keys need to be worn down a little to work properly. Over time keys wear down and stop working right. New keys cut in a automatic key maker are normally too "high" for the tumblers in the lock making it hard to turn. You can add graphite to your ignition which should make it easier as your ignition becomes used to your new keys. You can find graphite at Autozone for about 4 or 5 dollars.

Valet keys can be cut to get you into the vehicle (open your doors only) - to actually work in the ignition, make sure they are ignition keys that are programmed to start your vehicle. Locksmith store or dealership can help.

Pass key wont turn in new ignition cylinder but dummy key will


The keys probably differ in length. Matching teeth will not reveal this.

The key wont turn


With this year model it is most likely the key and lock barrel are both worn so they don't match anymore. Take the key to an auto locksmith and explain. He can cut another key with a little extra metal on the profile to get started, but most likely you will then need a new barrel and key fitted.

Hmmm, a puzzle.

The only way to disarm these alarms is with
the factory remote or turning on the ignition.
To turn off the factory alarm.

Ok, do you have the remotes?
If so, let's ID the system.
Go to www.KEYLESSRIDE.com & use th fcc #s
on the back of it.

If not try this:

Programming Factory Security on GM Cars and Trucks
Instructions for programming the GM factory security systems that do NOT
disarm from the driver's door key cylinder. This programming is for the
cars and trucks listed below.

96+ Camaro
96+ Firebird
99+ GM Trucks
99+ GM Sport Utility Vehicles

Step #1 Turn the ignition on then off.

Step #2 Remove the radio fuse only (not the fuse that says acc/radio).

Step #3 Turn the key to the accessory position. When you do this you
will get two chirps from the door buzzer. Should you hear only
one chirp, your vehicle does not have factory security and these
instructions do not apply. You need to hear two chirps.

Step #4 Press the unlock switch on the door. This will give 1-4 chirps
depending on the program step. Continue pressing the unlock
switch until you get to the desired chirp setting.
1 Chirp - Security off
2 Chirps - Remote Only
3 Chirps - Factory Setting
4 Chirps - Passive Arming

Step #5 Turn the ignition off.

Step #6 Put radio fuse back in.

Perform these steps within 5 seconds
Insert the key into the ignition (don’t turn it)
Insert the key into the ignition (don’t turn it)


Perform these steps within 40 seconds
Close, then open the drivers door.
Close, then open the drivers door.
Insert the key into the ignition (don’t turn it) and pull it out.


Perform these steps within 40 seconds
Close, then open the drivers door.
Close, then open the drivers door.
Insert the key into the ignition and leave in the ignition.
Close the drivers door
Turn the ignition to ON (as far as you can go without cranking the engine), then back to off .
Remove the key from the ignition.


Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.


Perform these steps within 40 seconds
Press the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1.5 seconds

Dealer cut a new key for Pilot but it won't work


If the key fits mechanically, and the lock turns, then the key has been cut correctly. However if it just won't start the vehicle, then the transponder chip within the key will need programming. The dealer should have the equipment to do this. Do not accept a key that does not start the car - and certainly don't pay unless it does.

How to remove or bypass the factory installed anti theft vehicle immobilizer.


in the 1996 sunfire GM uses an anti theft lock system. It can be triggered by all sorts of things. In order to relinquish this you must have a key to turn the ignition. These are not coded just plain cut keys. Once you attain this you put the key in and turn the ignition to the ACC position and wait ten minutes (theft lock light will turn off), turn off and take key out. You MUST do this 3 times and then the theft lock will be disarmed.

Lost keys


Why are you taking out the old one. Check with any good locksmith. If your door key fits the ignition, you can easily remove a door lock cylinder and the locksmith can make you a new key!!! I'm pretty sure to remove your lock you need to turn it with the key in it (but you don't have one)
