I'm looking for a way to start the car now. Not that it's an ignition of WCM problem that I can find on line already. Need a solution now if there is one.

It's been more than an HOUR. This is not the fast response I expected. I need to call AAA or I'll be baking out here forever. And you need to cancel me out, give me my $5 back and delete my card info. This is truly false advertising.

Hi, its been an hour, because you said you did not want to hear its in the SKISS system, and wanted a way to start it, but there is no way, if the computer does not see the signal from the key, it will not allow it to start, a new key would need to be programmed into the system, and this requires a special scanner to do, there is no way to bypass the system, its made so you cant, for anti theft situations,Tim

Thanks Tim. That a would have been a good response because I could have called the tow truck immediately. It wasn't meant to be literal. N

yOU CAN ALSO HAVE A MOBILE LOCKSMITH COME OUT AND CUT A NEW KEY AND PROGRAM IT, IT IS CHEAPER THAN THE DEALER AND SAVES A TOW BILL, OUR LOCAL LOCKSMITH CHARGES 70 DOLLARS TO DO THIS, THE DEALER GETS OVER 200 DOLLARS,tIM
