Question about 1998 Cadillac Seville
I am in New Zealand and own a cadillac seville 1998. We dont have any where to get a spare key because of the chip in it. Can anyone suggest what we can do please. Thanks
I had the same problem...in my case I had a key made at a local hardware store. They made the key and used the wrong blank(had wrong chip). When I used that key the theft deterent system kicked in. What you can do is measure the resistance of your chip (it is just a resistor) and solder it into the wiring under the steering wheel. I did it and it works fine.
Actually the reason I soldered the resistor in was that my car started failing to read the original keys for the car. The contacts that read the chip were bad....anyway now all my keys work. The downside is now the theft deterent of the chip is disabled. My car is a 97 and I just wish someone would steal it.
Let me know if you are going to try bypassing the "chip" and I will find the article that showed me how.

You might have to send it over seas maybe to a key cutter
