You can't just bypass the security system, it's programmed into several modules esp. the powertrain module. It needs to be reprogrammed to a new key. Ripping out the ignition just makes it look like a stolen vehicle now.

U would have to go under the hood and find the kill switch. It's usually an extra wire or ring connected to the battery but it can be hidden anywhere it could get a charge from
