Model Years Affected: 1996, 1997


Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.

  • Measure the resistance of the resistor (pill) in the key and match. Solder the resistor into circuit and bypass the wire running to ignition switch up inside the seering column that has broken.
