03 Taurus you are getting a remote starter installed they take one of your keys and hide it in the car do you have to still start it with a chip key or can you get anyone made?
I am trying to figure this whole senerio out, because it sounds as if there is a misunderstanding either on the part of the installer, or on your part as to what they are doing.Here is why. The signal exchange between transponder inside the key handle and the transciever in the steering column is so weak that the key has to be inserted into the lock clinder where the transciever is located in order for it to receive the signal from the key. A key hidden somewhere in the vehicle will not comumicate with the transciever because it will be too far out of range.A remote start system uses a key simulator to take the place of a PATS key. If the system is correct for the vehicle and the installer does it correctly, the remote start system will actually send a key signal to the PATS system by means of this PATS key simulator, without any key needed in the cylinder or hidden anywhere in the car.As far as the owner is concerned no other operational changes to the car are done, so you will still have to use a PATS key to start the car, unless you are using the remote start system.

Answer . The solunoid is located on the starter, on the lower front of the engine located between the engine and radiator. Some of the remote starter kits come with a wirin…g harness that requires that you remove the small wire from the starter, and connect this wire to the kit, most require that you install the start wire to this connection. You will also have to remove the coil wire connector and install a jumper connector between the OEM connector and the coil. Most of the better Kits accomplish this by opening the connector under the dashboard, near the steering column, that connects to the ignition switch, and plugs an inline connector in between the OEM connectors, This allows the computer to operate normally during remote opperation. If this is not helpful, please let me know the manufacturer of the Kit, and the model number of the kit, and I will get you more precise information.

I bought a new key for 92 Corvette at dealership and it appears to have same chip as older key that still works - the new key works for electrical functions but doesn't start car - anyone suggestions?
They probably chose the wrong value for the resistor in the key. I'd just go to a locksmith and get it done right the first time.
Yes, so you can't just get a new key cut at Wal-Mart
Bad battery, bad solenoid, bad cables.
I would suggest to look to the vendor / maker of the remote starter for their wiring diagrams - they should have the specifics not only for the starter, but also the Taurus.… At least Bulldog starters have all that wiring information available. Not sure of other manufacturers. See also "Related Questions" below for sources of detailed wiring diagrams for Taurus/Sables

Sometimes. The only reason you will usually need a key to program is for the immobilizer bypass module. Depending on the immobilizer used in the vehicle, some will require two… keys to properly program the bypass module. This will depend on whether or not your vehicle has an immobilizer, and if it does, what kind it has. Professional installation is always recommended with remote starts, and the installer should be able to tell you if your vehicle requires two keys to program.

You can always break in. Just a quick suggestion. You can't unlock the door manually. Sounds like an electrical. Many door locks today and just switches that control sol…enoids. If there is an electrical problem this could happen. I would contact the people who installed the remote starter. They SHOULD know how to bypass the remote system. They should have installed a bypass somewhere it is accessible for situations just like this one. Check in the trunk. That lock should not be electrically controlled.
