I don't know what you mean by computer chip. Do you mean an add-on performance enhancer? The vehicle has an ignition control module fastened to either the rear of the engine compartment on the left fender skirt, if it is a 4.0 liter, or it is screwed to the distributer at the rear of the engine if it is a 3.0 liter. As far as a performance chip, I wouldn't think there is because an Areostar is just not something people usually try to "soup up."
My 92 does have a computer chip in the ignition key.
The chip key system can not be bypassed. The engine computer will not allow the vehicle to start with out a good key message from the chip key computer.
If it doesn't have the computer chip in it, it is about $3 to get one cut. One with the chip is about $17.
Had the same problem and it was the computer chip in the ignition key
what is the main chip of the computer?
No. The chipped ignition key did not start until the 1998 model year and was only on the 6 cylinder Contour and Mystique. (I've got a '97 6 cylinder Contour that seems to have a chip in the key.)
The Aurora has a VATS ignition and either the contacts in the ignition lock are bad, the wires from the lock to the computer are broken or the VATS chip in your key is dirty or the contacts in the ignition lock is dirty and not making connection with the chip in the key.
The main chip in a computer is the CPU.
Yes,,,The chip is actually a resistor that needs to be "read" by the engine computer, it is part of the anti theft system.
You could change the spark plugs, sprak plug wires, computer chip.
the computer chip, or CPU, is typically located on the main motherboard inside a computer.
Some do. If your factory key is just flat metal you don't have but, if there is a little (usually black) square chip on it, you do. Most with a key fob do as well.
Many cars have a computer chip in the key - anti theft - it will work on the door and not the ignition.
The computer chip was invented in America by Lee de Forest!!!!
The main chip in a computer is a CPU (the brains of the computer) without the brains, the computer simply cannot load.
I bought a 2009 accent as well. Found myself asking the same question. I called the dealership and the answer was NO.
Unless you have the frequencies of the chip inside the key or very tech savvy knowledge of how to trick the computer that runs the ignition into thinking it has the correct key chip inserted, you don't. Extra chip keys are about $150.00 a piece... IF you have the original key. I don't know what the price is to re-key a Windstar ignition switch that requires a chip to start, but it isn't going to be in the neighborhood of 'cheap'.
when you buy an ignition switch you have to take the template key to a locksmith or the Chevy dealer and get the chip in the key. Your cars computer won't read the key and therefore won't start. No signa no turning over..
A computer chip used in Xboxes and elsewhere.
the very first computer chip was developed by mr. Jack Kilby
