Keys, like all metal objects, are suceptible to shear failures when force is applied on the thin metal teeth or tip. Since there is less material in the teeth and tip, these regions are much weaker than the base or head of the key.
Transponder Keys - have a chip inside the handle of the key, which also often features remote control buttons for locks & trunk access. "Remote keys" and "switchblade keys" are two types of transponder keys.Smart Keys/ FOBIK Keys - an all-in-one car remote & key, usually standard with push-button start & "keyless entry" carsVATS Keys - for older model GM vehicles have been called "chip keys" because of the resistor on the key blade. The resistor looks like a "chip," but in fact is not a computer chip at all.
Most 2000 Concordes do have chip keys.
The dealership (if it is one of those keys which require a coded chip reprogram).
Not all models have chip. Engine immobilizer is a part of security and was optional.

If you had keys with computer chip embedded,you will have to go back to a dealer,and have it checked&ordered..
No. The Contour did not have chipped keys.
No, not any of the Saturn ION's manufactured by GM have chip keys, regardless of the model year.
Yes, it has a chip. You can take the key to the Walmart auto section where they make keys. They can test it and tell you if it for sure has a chip but I am 99% sure it does.
If you have chip keys, the dealer will need to program the keys to the new PCM.
