No, and if you try it you won't be able to start the engine cause the security system will go into lock out, and that will have to be deactivated by the dealer, and the key and cylinder units will have to be repalced and reprogrammed. So don't mess it up, if the ignition cylinder is messed up take it too the dealer to have it done right.

No, the simplest thing is to call a locksmith to make a new key for the car. The new key will have a transponder chip in it, so the security system knows your using the correct key. The new key would also have to be programmed to the car as well. You can't do it yourself.

If your on SSD try your local Salvation Army about your problem, they may have options if they are well connected in your community.
