You must have chip keys. If you get 3 you can program a new one yourself. Call dealers and get prices and call locksmiths and get prices. Vary greatly.

SOURCE: disable transponder chip keys

You have to measure the resistance across the key and get a resistor of the same value at radio shack and jump it across the wires at the security box, this way the security system thinks the key is always inserted. We did this with 1989 firebird some years ago and it worked great.

1999 grand Marquis will quit starting randomly without any cranking either. It will start if the car and steering wheel is shaken vigorously while turning the key. Why?

I would guess that one of the wires to the ignition switch or the switch itself is intermittent. Replacing ignition switch will likely fix it.

Need replacement ignition key for my 1987

A 1987 does not have the theft prevention chip in the key, so yes, you can. In case it is a 1997, you need the chipped key to start the vehicle. This would have to be aquired from the dealer.
