Just take the chip out of the key and glue it up by the ignition. Then use what ever key you want. The imobilizer will be disabled, But least you will not be giving them the key with it to drive it off.

It's kinda funny that a lot of people thinks that if the key is in column (completly out of sIght) that you are just handing the key to anyone who walks up...Trust me know one can see it where it is, I've not destroyed my key, and if you have someone taking your column apart to look for stuff.. you've got bigger problems

You can't see it. But then they try and steal your car they break that plastic around the ignition so they may try and break your steering lock and hotwire the car. Then since they broke all the plastic they will see the key and just use it to drive off. And with the key there it disables the imoblizer so they can hotwire it at that point and drive off. Why make it easier?

I don't need anything. I'm just telling you what happens when they try and steal your car. Ask anyone with a law enforcement background. They will tell you the same thing.

They get in
try the screw driver in cylinder
bust the steering column plastic
Grab wires and hotwire away.

Thank you officer twinscroll for your informative posts. I think we all get that the bad guys will steal cars at will. Guess there's nothing we can do to keep our cars safe.

so the key works if you put the chip inside the keyfob? is there a certain distance it needs to be from the column? let's say you put the chip in the key fob and starts up fine, is there a chance the car can turn off if the chip ends up being too far away?

No. Once the car starts you're good. I've noticed it needs to be fairly close on startup though.

They should work with the 02-07's as long as you don't have the immobilizer. Mine works fine on my 05 sti as long as I have the original key with the chip nearby during start up.

is there anyway we can measure the resistance from the chip and buy resistors from radio shack and disable the theft system(same as the car thinking the key is in) I know this could be done on GM's as I have done it before. I'm just really scared pulling the chip out of my key. Is the dealer the only way a chip in the 05 and up STi's can be reporgammed? There has to be a way to disable it as if a remote start was installed in the car, it would start without seeing the key. I'm not worried about someone stealing my 7 year old 05 Sti, we dont own Ferrari's

Can't. The chip is different per car. It has a number string that needs to match the ecu
