Try your spare key. It could be that the primary key you have been using needs to be reprogrammed, which can be done by contacting a dealer. A spare key will have the same microchip technology, and because it has not been heavily used, the microchip will still be good on that key. Depending on your make and model, you might be able to save some money and call a car locksmith and ask about services for reprograming keys if the spare key does not work.
Turn the key to the "On" position in order to reset the pass lock system. Wait for fifteen minutes with the key in the "On" position. If the security light disappears, turn the key to the "Accessories" position and wait for a couple of seconds. Turn the key to the "Off" position and take it out from the lock cylinder. Wait for a couple of seconds and turn the car on as you normally would.
Install a relay that bypasses the security system if your car is using a remote starter. Contact your remote starter dealer or installer to ask about the relay. It is possible to also install the relay if you do not use a remote starter. Install the relay by finding an electrical circuit diagram for your vehicle and locating the security immobilizer circuit. Cut the circuit with wire cutters and solder the bypass wire into the circuit. Test it by turning your car on to make sure that it works.
Take your key to a dealer or a hardware store if you have recently lost a key or replaced the ignition switch. Only some hardware stores are able to duplicate microchipped keys while nearly every dealer will be able to help by making a duplicate key with a microchip.

How do i disable anti theft?

Chances are you will need to have the vehicle towed to the dealer. There's not much you can do without a key with the microchip in it.
You may be able to go to the dealer and get a new key with a chip from the VIN number without taking the vehicle but I doubt it.

2009 sentra starts but will not go over 1000 rpm's

As you stated my friend that it shown the car image with the key inside it is surely your Immobilizer and has been activated or you have a faulty ignition key or your Ignition key lost its program , Or you dropped your key and lost the little micro chip in the key or damaged it . DO NOT LEAVE THE IGNITION KEY WITH MICROCHIP ON ANY ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT LIKE WASHING MACHINES TVS,MICROWAVES,DVDS,FRIDGES,ETC as they cause the loss of program even coming in contact with mobile phones. Keep this in mind. Good Luck.

The key fob for my car will not unlock the doors or start the engine

You say that your key fob does not unlock the car. Try to open the door ordinary and try to start the car. If the car wont start means that your key fob has lost the program and needs re-programing. The other option is either you by any case confused the key fob with the standard key which is only to unlock the doors. The last senario is when you have opened the key fob to check the battery lost the microchip and that is the reason for not starting. Check following my advice. Good luck.

Need the loging code for 2000 vw beetle 2,0.I lost my keys car but a need a code for get ones

You will have to go to the dealer to get new keys and remotes with the microchip and have it programmed and cut there. VW keys are as you know not like typical auto keys that have teeth and as such they have to be cut with special equipment. Your car will also have an immobilizer that requires a code from the microchip in the key or a key fob remote to disable the immobilizer and this is something that has to be done at the dealership as there are very few locksmiths that handle this. Rough cost estimate is $300 per key with remote and work done.

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer, lost the ignition keys and I found out the keys for ignition have a microchip. Can I put a regular key w/ cylinder or what are my options to keep costs down?

Limited options without rigging up something with a starter button which would not be at all attractive or practical.

I would check online for companies specializing in cutting chipped keys before paying a Ford dealership. I had to buy one of these kind of keys for my Toyota Camry recently and I think it was around $85.

Good luck!

Remove plastic cover around top of steering column on '05 Accord

1. The wire you need are not going to be in the columm. They are going to be under the collumm, under the dashboard.
2. Also if you have a microchip in your key, the remote start will not work. Unless you take a spare key with a microchip in it, and tie it with a paperclip to amplify the chip, inside the steering columm or close to it. (because the microchip key doesn't necessarily need to be inside the ignition) so when you use the wireless starter, the computer will think the microchip key is being used.
