and start it with a screwdriver he didnt realize the chip in the key would not
allow him to do that. i dont have the money to get a new steering column or

Your screwed until you can get it to the dealer.

The "chip" in a VATs key is a resistor, the lock cylinder looks for a specific resistance from that key. You can buy a new VATs ignition lock cylinder mated to new keys.
