I have a 06 impala PARTS car.The keys are missing in action.Is there a way to bypass the oem chip in the key?
Go to your favorite GM dealership with the title or registration in your name and photo ID. They'll cut a new key from the VIN.

Take your new freshly cut key and make a master with the 30 minute method.

Turn the ignition on till the security light in the cluster shuts off... approximately 10-12 minutes.
Switch the ignition off but leave the key in.

This works as long as the PCM BCM and anti theft RF read components are all good.

You may not be able to get a key without the title. Certainly not from a dealer.

You can't scrap it in many states without a title...

When I get some time, maybe I'll just change the steering column with one I have somewhere in the shop and see if that works. TBA..
That may be your best bet as long as the RFID pickup coil is good. A replacement ignition cylinder would do it.
