It is rather involved, you need to find out the resistance of the chip in your stock key, then purchase a resistor with the same value, locate the sensor wires at the base if the steering column, then solder in the resistor between those wires, then make sure it is very well insulated, if you do this correctly then your system will allow you to start the engine.
