can you disable the security system. car wont start someone tried to steal. on 2001 Chrysler Sebring

They broke the security ring that is in the steering column, but ignition is in tack. Can you buy just the secirty ring or can you remove/disable the security system.

No not really, it would be simpler to fix the security system in the car than try to re-engineer the electronics to bypass the system. I am a very tolerant person by hate petty stupid crimes like people braking into another person's car or house.
Thank you so much for your response. I totally agree and I am so upset but I guess I am glad they didn't get the car. My mechanic is telling me that this security ring located in the steering column is broke and I guess my only option is to replace the whole steering column. What do you think?
