My guess is that it has something to do with the programmed chip in the
key that allows it to start your car.

Its something that the government uses to track you...

If they wanted, they could even make it self destruction and blow your car up...

That there is why it costs around $100 to get a new key made. Its the chip that tell the car its you and not someone trying to steel it.

that's your resistor.
the computer reads across that, and if it's not there, or not the right resistance, no starty!
I think they started doing that in 96.
