Which part is broken? That is the immobilizer activating. You can remove the old chip and put it into a new key fob to get it working. The metal switchblade key can also be swapped over.

My chip is lost I think I mistook it for a part of the broken key fob and threw it away. I'm in Germany and I've called the dealer but the problem is getting the car there. There is a 150 euro charge to get the car there. Which is over 200 dollars plus what it cost for the key and the programing. I was trying to understand the temporary start to get it to the dealer, but I'm lost! Could you explain more?

You still need the SKC number. If you threw out the parts from the old key then go in the trash and find it. Otherwise call for a tow or do the programming yourself.
