Unless you're gonna be like me and get this key right here...



Then you can only start your car with the remote and not The key.

The key needs to be in the ignition so that the remote start can be used. without it i dont think it would work.

Python 990 Alarm with Remote Start..

1. Start the car with the remote
2. Let it warm up, then walk out to the car
3. Unlock car with remote
4. Put the key into the ignition, and turn to start position
5. Step on Brake to disengage remote start, engine stays on
6. Shift into gear and drive

Since i bought a key without a transponder chip, I can't start my car with the key. I'll have to start my car with a remote then use the key to drive it

If you step on the brakes without the key being in the ignition turned to the on position, the engine shuts off, and the alarm re-engages. This is a security measure, to ensure people don't get away with your car while it's warming up.

No, you have to have the original key w/ the chip inside to drive off. That is why you have 1 of your key put in one of that device (forgot what its called) that has a memory and hidden somewhere in your car. that device send signal to the brain if the key inserted has diff. code and only the same key code is the only one who can drive off the car. pro-thief probly has a way to get through all that lol.

someone correct me if im wrong or add more specific info.

NO,

the chip is only used to START the car, and that's it. The transponder bypass is the one that contains the key, and the signal is used to start your car when you use the remote start. And that's ONLY used when you use the remote start button. But once your car is started, all you have to do is turn the ignition to the start, then you can get going, regardless of if you have a chipped key or not. So right now i'm using the red key that you see above to drive my car around, and i'm restricted to only starting my car with the remote. I keep the spare key inside my locked glove compartment in case my alarm ****s up.

There are two kinds of transponder bypasses, and thye both perform the same.
