With your year of car the key has a coded chip that commnicates with the ingnition switch. Without this chip it is virtualy impossible to start the vehicle. The only thing they are going to be able to do is break into the vehicle and steal what ever is inside.
The only way to get this chip is through the dealer with proof of ownership and cannot be duplicated. However the fob buttons can be duplicated to enter the vehicle but not start it.
