Unfortunately you have no other choice.


Your car uses a transponder key to help start the car, the cheapest route would be to contact an auto locksmith so they can cut and program a new key. Replacing the ignition will just be an added cost. There is no way to bypass the system. Carpool or walk until you have enough money saved up.
