Only how the car will start without a chip is if the PATS is disabled, when u switch the ignition on the transponder receiver looks for the chip in the key and if it dont get it then it will trigger the system and the car wont start, so either ur key has a chip in it and u just dont know it or ur computer has a tune file programmed in it with the pats disabled

some how it was effecting my ecu causing it to think it had a different computer saying it wasnt for that car but it was it ended up being a corrupted chip but wasnt like that when i bought it so it must of shorted out some how and the way i found out was my wheel locked up while driving and i had to pull over i tried shaking my steering wheel shaking my wires from my aftermarket alarm till finaly my freind started hiting stuff in my car and it started when he kicked the plastic by his foot ... from then on i knew it was something there so i would literaly drive around with a crowbar on my side for when it acted up and turned off when i was driving i would just give her a llittle hit and she would fire right back up. if not she would flash theft and only turnover but no start. got pissed took the chip out bama refunded me and i got my lovers for my new stang.
