Smart Keys

As far as i know there's no way around it. Unless you take the comp. out. Then you would have to replace it with one of the same year that does not have the system.

there IS a steering wheel lock.

when you turn your key to ON, do you see a SECURITY light come on? if so, you'll need to get a key programmed. if not, do what redneck said.

I needed a third key to put into the remote starter. I went to key smith and he made one for $30. I thought that that was cheap.
