I just bought a VR wagon and went and got a (plain)spare key cut, the key goes in and turns but the car wont start? The spare doesn't have the electronic stuff in it and I notice that it doesn't have a little bump of metal on it like the origional, this bit of metal on the origional key seems to touch on a metal ring around the lock. Is this little bump of metal on the origional key making some sort of a circuit connection ??

The head contains the electronics your car needs to tell it to start so you'll have to buy one and get it programmed to your car (can buy from Ebay or many other places and get programmed by Holden or Mr Minit etc).

So I have to have another huge key ? I got the spare cut cause the origional is so big and chunky. So let me get this right when I put the key in the ignition it has a code in it that tells the car it can start up? Wish the guy at the key cutting place could have told me that!!

or if you have a head you can use that to unlock the doors giving you what, 20seconds to start the car before the imoboliser kicks in again.
