I would advise to have a new barrel fitted and yes they are pre programmed for security so they are chipped and the vehicle will have to go to dealer for this sort of work unless you have a very good auto locksmith in your area

Where will I find the ignition cylinder tamper switch on a 98 lincoln town car


Its just about impossible to bypass. You would need a key that matches the old key chip cut to the new tumblers. Each key has a chip in it that the computer looks for.

Question?. do you still have the original keys. The reason that I ask is you have 2 options, take the car to a dealer (towed) and they can reset the computer. Option 2 is easier, take your original key and your new ignition (obviously you know how to remove the barrel because you have changed it), take both to a good locksmith and have your new lock recoded to your old key (take the keys so they can remove the barrell), this will allow you to use your old key and your computer will forget that it was stolen The option is yours

Imobiliser renault scenic megane is stuck on and can't start car, car will turn over key fob will lock/unlock car had to replace ignition barrel so battery has been off


tight you replaced the lock barrell so you have new keys ,now inside this key is a chip so remove the chip from the old ley and tape it to teh transponder ,now make sure the chip that was inside the key is removed by whatever means you have to use even drilling it out.Then it will start as what happens is the new lock has the key programmed to a code for instalisation in a new vehicle and the chip in the key is confusing the transponder its a renault remember and they do have a mind of their own in regards to the immobilisor ,if you do as i say it should start if it doesnt then lock and unlock the drivers door three times slowly then jump in quick and start car within 20 secs of the key turning procedure and if that doesnt work then call the dealer and pay through the nose

did you see a wire wound ring around the back of the steering lock ??and the old one as well ?? no doubt the chip has been taken out of the key and taped up this ring .When you changed the column you didnt swop this chip over to new column .See if old column has this tiny thing taped to it just below the barrel of the steering lock .If iam right then tape it to the new column like it was on the old one and remove the chip out of the new key.
