automatic i'll assume...and hope :lol:

with the right wiring diagrams you should be able to figure out how to jump the shift interlock or there should be a hidden button somewhere to unlock it.

You don't have to have it towed. Call the dealership and give them your VIN and they can cut you a new key, it's gonna cost ya, but prob cheaper than towing then having a key made.

If they're towing an Eclipse, they will lift the front and have it roll on the back wheels. If it's in gear/park - that doesn't matter, since those tires will be elevated off the ground.

If they put it on a flatbed, they will just drag it up.

If you call the dealership, you can get a new key cut based on the VIN and proof of ownership.


So - where is the issue?

if your not locked out of your car then take the plastic cover off from behind the steering wheel. then underneath the dash feel for a cable that moves when you push the button on your shift knob. follow that cable to the ignition and unhook it. it should move into neutral then. hope it helps

It you get it towed, most insurance companies will provide a free tow within a certain distance. That is if you have insurance of course...

i have already called the dealership and they want $135 just for a key to open the doors but not to turn it on, they told me in order to make a chip key i would have to tow my car to the dealership so they can get the chip From the obdII for $220+, but at my local shop where i get my paint job he has a friend that only goes to shops and makes keys wit the chip for $80 he told me all i have to do is tow the car to the shop, but my car is head in parked in the garage, i guess they would have to drag it out in park, in a flat bed?
