Your car isn't starting? Did you check your battery? When was the last time you were able to start the car, if at all? Does the engine turn over or is it not responsive at all when you put the key in? Might be a stupid question, but is there fuel in the gas tank?

No it wont start without the chip in the key. The reason i know this is because i bought one of those fancy sti key that looks like a kill switch. when i went to leave my car wouldnt start. I went back in to tell the service rep. and he was like its because theres no chip in it. So i told him to give my money back because i didnt want to give $30 for a key i can only open my doors with when i have a remote for that.
