We have a nightmare that began with the loss of the original key. After spending several hundred bucks with the local dealer, a low battery precipitated an imobilizer event. The dealer has informed us this is due to a failing instrument cluster. I really need to know how to bypass the RFID theft deterrent as a low battery may occur again. Any help would be much appreciated. Brandy loves her car, but 700 bucks to replace the instrument cluster is more than she can afford.

No problem, a chip tuner can remove the system for cheaper than the instrument cluster. If you are willing to buy the tools mentioned in the FAQ, you can also work on the system for cheaper than that too but you have to DIY service. Either way it's a few hundred dollars.
