    some cars also have embedded chip in their non-remote keys. the key may seem normal except there's a microchip embedded and if a key without the correct microchip is used to start the car, it will be immobilized after a while.
    best to verify w the owner's manual before duplication.

    i've checked. the key has a embedded chip.....

    cost about $321. ++ to get it replaced, and it will take at least 1.5 weeks.

    Well, live with that price or change your system to a simple alarm set up. For some car makes, its between $500 to about $800 per factory "chip embaded" key. Remember, imobilizer type alarms are usualy better theft deterrent due to electronic coding. The double locking feature is one of the best form of car locks to prevent car jacks.

    For about the same price ($400), you can get very sophisticated car alarm 2-way paging system (Korean or China made) and have 2 sets of arming/disarming keychained units.

    Consider your alternatives and pick the best choice. Worse come to worse, duplicate car key cheaply, then use the old fashion way to lock and unlock a car without setting off the imobilizer unit.
