Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car will not start because we think the anti-theft has been turned on due to a key being used in ignition that was not chipped and the car only makes this clicking sound.

The key will only open the doors, not the ignition. You'll need to get another key with a chip to program it. But to disarm the system, I'm not sure. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 20mins, then reconnect and try with a proper key.

If car is started with a key without the chip, the engine will shut down (anti theft feature)...my 2005 T&C minivan manual states after three tries of starting car with a key without the chip the engine will not start and the car will need to be towed to a dealership to be reprogrammed.
