Almost every store that makes keys has a transponder chip detector. SOME people will take their chipped key and copy it and cut the key part off. then place the chip portion in the steering column beside the pickup ring around the ignition switch. the other option is to go to the dealer for the chipped key.

No you have to take the key to the dealer ship and they will have to order you a new key.

Does the 2006 kia spectra key have a chip in it?


My girl child's 2006 Kia Spectra did NOT have a chip. Had a new key made at my local auto parts store and it worked perfectly.

Wayne, when you turn the key on does it look normal like its ready to start? not sure if its automatic tranny or standard ,if auto try starting in netural or moving shifter while holding key in start possion do you think battery has enough power to start ,try jump starting it, if standard tranny,be sure clutch is all the way in, (im just saying that to be sure) .Woody

We made a copy of the key for a Kia Spectra 2003 but the car is locked won't turn on but will open the doors but not the trunk. What could be happening, car was working fine before the key problem


I think you original key has an elecrtonic chip in it. The vehicle will only start if this type key is used. You can get another one at your local dealership by providing the vehicle VIN

if you want to make sure if there is chip/transponder in your key, you can test it using silver paper (the one from inside the cigarette pack), wrap properly the plastic handle of your key and make sure the only thing can see is the metal from your key. then start your engine and if it does't start , it means there is chip built in in your key.
