Problems with the 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 the key and ignition lock cylinder must be replaced to correct this condition.

what the problem is the chip that is in the key is worn I did know that the Gm key with the chip in it is measured by resistants' it goes up too 15 well to solve this problem I purchase a small resistor and plug it into the wire that runs up too the key switch . the resistor has too be the same as the old key bottom line I eliminated the anti theft system on mine.
