    The memory lost after I brake the barrel coz the key was refused to turn.from there I was driving for almost three weeks and the car was only able to start after I press the unlock button on the remote control.and I was putting the key on the driver's door after the car starts coz the whole barrel is damaged.

    Your problem is not the key but the fact that the key is not in contact with the key reader which was on the end of the barrel.
    Putting the key in the driver's door does nothing, except lock and unlock it.
    That's quite a butcher job on the barrel housing.

    Absolutely, I don't know how he was starting it at all...?

    And OP, if you were able to source a new key, what were you going to stick it into? There's nothing left of that barrel..

    I had put another upper steering column with a key and receiver but people that working with car key programming fail to program it. I was checking on the internet for the tool that can program Holden Vy commodore and they said is MAP KF200 and MAP KF204. I wanted to buy it through eBay and they said they can't ship it to my location which is Namibia I really don't know what to do now

    Do you have anyone in Australia they can send the key to, and then they can forward it to you?

    What I am suggesting is - get the Ebay seller to send the key to the person you know in Australia, then have that person to send the key on to you in Namibia..

    Ok, I'm going to assume there is a language barrier here. You said this in your first post:

    You also said that you know someone in Australia:

    So....what I am now saying is this - buy the key (and whatever other parts you like) on Ebay as mentioned in your first post. Then give the seller the address of your friend/relative in Australia and have them post it all to them. Then, ask your friend/relative to send it to you in Namibia...
