If you do. How are you going to unlock the steering column?


the dealer may be able to cut a key from the VIN. # and you may have to jiggle it a little as it's a fresh cut key

You can if you get underneath and jumper the solenoid correctly but it won't run only crank the engine, as there will be no power provided to any of the electronics neede to run. You can also try a good locksmith, he can pick out the key code, cut a new key and then reprogram the security system to reconise the new key, if there are none in your area that can do this then your stuck with the dealer and it's overpriced services, and this won't be cheap.
