Ignition Key Transponders
Ignition Key Transponders
Describes the workings and applications of modern automotive key
transponders. These tiny chips transmit a digital signal that's then
processed by the Anti-Theft (antitheft) module. An OK signal or command is
then given to the ECM and related computers to allow injection and starter
activation. Learn how they work with this clear and concise video. Future
videos will detail what to do to reprogram ignition keys. Each manufacturer
is different and so is each procedure.

1993 Toyota Celica Ignition Cylinder Removal and Car Start without key
How to remove a stuck frozen ignition lock cylinder on a 1993 Toyota
Celica, and then start the car, even without a key. The key (or any copies
I had) would actually not turn in the ignition AT ALL. This probably
applies to many makes/models from this era. Try these things before
attempting to drill:
1) Tap key with rubber mallot (see vid in description)
2) Have a new key cut by dealer according to VIN number.
3) Drill baby drill as shown here! Then start with pliers (see 5:45)
If you do try this method, please let me know how it works out for you!
If you can already get the key to turn to the Accessory (Acc) position,
please see the first linked video down below.
Comments/questions/death threats always welcome!
*DISCONNECT BATTERY BEFORE STARTING*

- Good source of light.
- drill with drillbit
- needle-nose and/or flat nose pliers
- compressed air (optional)
I am not a 'car guy' nor am I a professional locksmith. This is me showing
what worked (surprisingly!) well for me in a given situation. Your mileage
BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS, try turning the steering wheel back and forth and
turning the key. Also (if possible), try jacking the car up to relieve
pressure on the front axle if possible, then wiggling the key back and
forth. Otherwise, if you can't even get the key to turn to the accessory
position, this video may be for you for you! If you can get it to the
accessory position, see the first video linked to below.
I have already removed all the plastic pieces on the dashboard by using a
philips screwdriver by the time this video is taken.
