Default how to start without keys

I have a problem. I lost one of my keys years ago and never bothered to replace it, but now the chip in my second key is broken and I cannot start my truck. The dealership says I have to bring the truck in to replace the key, but I can't start it!! Does anyone know any ways to get the truck to start without the keys??

how did the chip break in the first place? they normall dont just stop working. There is a way to bypass the security but you have to have a wide knowledge of the security and you need a programmable bypass. it the chip went it is not worth your time to bypass this just to get it to a garage. find someone with a dolly and start towing.

Or do what I had to do this past week. I lost my keys on the river and had to call a locksmith to program me a new key. $210 later I had a key that would work.

Ouch.... Whenever I am on or near water with truck keys, the keys get hidden on the truck itself.
