    hello chaps.

    I have the transponder ring in my car which suggests my car has EWS and today when i turned the key in the lock to open the drivers door i snapped my key and all the technical shtuff fell out and all that was left was the physical key attached to some black plastic. I put the key in the ignition and the car started. Am I missing something here? Or does my car not have EWS?

    Are you sure your transponder chip wasn't still attached to the broken plastic bits? little oblong thing.

    Or like some other cars all you have to have is your key somewhere near the barrell and the car will start. Put your broken pices outside the car and then try starting and see if it turns over, if it does then you have EWS.
